Article by Christian A., on August 6, 2014

The 2015 GMC Canyon will start at $21,880, including the $925 dealer freight charge. The 2015 Canyon is offered as standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder direct injected engine that is rated at 200 hp, same found on the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. As standard, the new GMC Canyon comes with signature light-emitting diode or LED, lightning, a four-way power driver’s seat, CornerStep rear bumper as well as 16-inch aluminum wheels.

The 2015 GMC Canyon SLE (2WD extended cab) has a starting price of $27,520 including destination charges. According to GMC, the 2015 Canyon SLE customers get aluminum interior trim, soft-touch instrument panel and door pads, EZ-lift and lower tailgate, eight-inch diagonal color-touch radio with Intellilink, and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with a three-month or three-GB trial (whichever comes first).

2015 GMC Canyon SLT crew cab short box model with 4WD starts at $37,875. This model is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates 305 hp and comes with seats wrapped in leather, automatic climate control, remote start and automatic locking differential but also with 18-inch polished cast-aluminum wheels.

GMC offers as an option the 3.6-liter V6 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, Bose premium seven-speaker audio system and GearOn accessory system.

Just like the 2015 Colorado, the new GMC Canyon will be available in multiple cab and bed configurations, such as extended cab models with a 6-foot 2-inch box, or crew cab models with either the 6-foot 2-inch or a 5-foot 2-inch box. More details to be released this fall, when the vehicle will go on sale.

The new 2015 GMC Canyon was developed to set the bar higher in terms of power, efficiency and refinement, thereby redefining the all-new midsize truck segment. With the Canyon, GMC now offers three truck models in the industry.

Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, described the all-new Canyon as the first premium midsize truck in the segment, combining best-in-class capabilities and the brand's signature refinement. He called the new Canyon as an efficiently sized, maneuverable package that that serves as a great proposition to customers seeking the cargo-hauling and trailering capability of a truck but don’t want a full-size pickup.

Underpinned by a proven global architecture, the new GMC Canyon was engineered to cater to the demands and driving conditions of drivers in North America. As standard, the new Canyon is powered by a 2.5-liter I-4 engine that delivers 200 hp (149 kW). A 3.6-liter V6 engine is also available, with 305 hp (227 kW) of max output. The new Canyon also offers -- when properly equipped – an available maximum trailering rating of 7,000 lbs (3,175 kg).

In terms of efficiency, the new GMC Canyon is the best in the segment. When properly equipped, the 2.5L 2WD Canyon models offer an EPA-estimated 27 mpg highway. On the other hand, 3.6L 2WD models return 26 mpg highway. Amazingly, the Canyon is the only truck in the segment that offers AutoTrac automatic four-wheel drive that enables the truck to manually automatically engage 4WD.

Aldred quipped that while not all customers seek full-size capability, they still deserve to be provided with true-truck strength and traits typically offered by larger models. He noted that the Canyon will offer all the needed capability with confidence as well as delivers GMC's signature refinement that complements active lifestyles. He added that the new Canyon likewise delivers the technology that customers seek with more standard elements.
