Trim Level Progress in a GMC Truck

numbersDiving deeper into the GMC Trucks in the Canyon family, we find that that for the majority of this truck’s life, its standard four- and five-cylinder engines were lacking in the power department, which limited the truck’s ability to comfortably haul cargo or tow heavy loads. Build quality was average at best, and many items within the truck’s cabin felt flimsy and cheap, but we are so glad to report that this year, all of these issues have been addressed head-on, and the final product is amazing.

“The current GMC Canyon is a standout in its segment, and its robust power, pleasant driving dynamics and agreeable cabin should hit the sweet spot for many who are in the market for a midsize truck.”

The GMC Canyon trucks in Thunder Bay ON, gives buyers a choice of two body styles: extended cab or crew cab. Extended-cab models seat four, while crew-cab models seat five. Extended-cab Canyons haul loads with a box that measures 74 inches in length, while crew-cab models offer buyers the choice of a 74-inch or 61.7-inch box.  Consumers of this amazing new truck in Thunder Bay ON will have the choice of five different trim levels and they are: SL, base Canyon, SLE, SLT and Denali. SL models are sold solely with an extended cab for those of you with bigger families and come with a list of more basic features such as the following: 16-inch wheels, vinyl floor covering, a six-speaker sound system and a rearview camera.  The base GMC Canyon models are available with a crew or extended cab and add standard carpeting along with added options that fall outside of the basic Thunder Bay GMC Trucks mode and into the more advanced technology, such as OnStar telematics and remote keyless entry. There is more to gain on these new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON when you continue up the trim level line.

 

The Canyon For the Win

winnerThe trucks in the GMC Canyon lineup in Thunder Bay ON are the ones we plan to focus on in this and the next article.  For starters, compact and midsize pickups fulfill an important role even if they are not quite as popular as the full size pick-ups on the roadways today. For the many truck buyers whose towing and hauling needs don’t require the capabilities of a full-size, these more nimble and fuel-efficient trucks are the perfect choice. GMC’s entry level awesome new truck in Thunder Bay in this segment is the GMC Canyon.

Here is a bit of history on these new trucks for sale in Thunder Bay ON, “The GMC Canyon was first sold from 2004 to 2012 and then revived in 2015. Now in its second generation, the Canyon offers rugged styling, a pleasant ride, capable engines and a relatively expansive array of feature content. With enough power on tap to tow and haul, it easily handles all the functions you expect a truck to fulfill. And like many of the top pickups these days, it goes a step further by providing enough luxury and comfort to make it an amenable companion on your daily commute.”
