2015 GMC Canyon Nightfall Special Edition debuts in Detroit

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 13, 2015

GMC is offering a special edition of the Canyon -- the Nightfall. GMC will make the Canyon Nightfall available on both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive SLE crew cab models. Covered in Onyx Black, the special edition will be launched in the second quarter of 2015, General Motors said in a statement, with pricing to be announced closer to the availability date.

Prior to its launch, the Nightfall will be shown at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. The Nightfall package builds on the standard equipment on the SLE, including a distinct black grille, black assist steps, factory spray-in bedliner and 18-inch multi-spoke aluminum wheels, as well as a polished exhaust tip, automatic climate control and remote start.

The package means a lot of savings than purchasing each feature separately. GMC said that over than 40 percent of the initial orders for the Canyon include at least one pick from the accessory collection it developed for the truck.

In September 2014, Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC sales and marketing, remarked that he wants a Denali version of the Canyon. Denali is GMC’s top trim level. He remarked than he targets Denali to account for a fourth of the GMC’s entire mix.

Aldred told Automotive News that if the Canyon does not get a Denali version, it would halt the progress so far in selling the Canyon. GMC sold 3,070 Canyons until December 2014 after launching the truck in September.
