Today, GMC unveiled the 2015 GMC Canyon, completing the brand’s three-truck lineup. The truck provides consumers a no-compromise midsize truck option with all of the cargo-hauling and trailering versatility, but in a smaller package.
The Canyon was developed with distinctive design, comfort and connectivity features consumers will love. Just a few of its notable features include a payload of at least 1,450 pounds, available OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, and the segment’s only active aero grille shutters, which close at certain highway speeds to enhance efficiency through improved aerodynamics. The Canyon also boasts the segment’s best horsepower – an estimated 193 horsepower (146 kW) from a standard 2.5L I-4 and an estimated 302 horsepower (224 kW) from an available 3.6L V-6.
Buyers will be able to choose from three body configurations: An extended cab model with a six-foot bed, a crew cab with a five-foot bed and a crew cab with a six-foot bed.
GMC expects the Canyon to be the most powerful truck in the segment and leave nothing on the table when it comes to hauling and towing. The vehicle’s many additional bells and whistles will make the passenger experience more fun, comfortable and connected.
