For any GMC truck enthusiast, the reveal of the new GMC Canyon is met with excitement! This new mid-size truck is redefining the way people think about this class of truck and people are loving it even more than was anticipated. The Canyon provides an edge to GMC that none other have and that is that GMC will now officially have the only 3-truck lineup in the industry. This just appeals more to the average buyer who is looking for more variety in choices without losing the quality they expect in a new truck. Here is what Tony DiSalle, Vice President of GMC Marketing had to say about the new GMC Canyon:
“The all-new 2015 Canyon completes GMC’s three-truck family, which started with the redesigned 2014 Sierra 1500 and 2015 Sierra HD,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. “It rounds out a lineup that offers the broadest range of capabilities in the industry, giving truck customers more choices to find the vehicle that meets their professional, personal and lifestyle needs.” Additionally, “Not everyone needs full-size capability, but they still deserve strength and true-truck attributes that come in larger models. The Canyon will offer all the capability with confidence – and GMC’s signature refinement that complements active lifestyles,” said DiSalle. “It also delivers the technology customers want with more standard features.”
The new GMC Canyon has a few selling points that set it apart from all others. These are a few of the highlights of what you will find is amazing about this new truck:
- 193 horsepower (146 kW) in the standard 2.5L I-4 engine
- 302 horsepower (224 kW) in the 3.6L V-6 engine
- 1,450 pound (657 kg) payload
- Future plans for more power and efficiency with a Duramax 2.8L turbodiesel engine (coming in the 2016 models)
