GMC Adds Two More Options to Canyon
GMC is making two more additions to their mid-size truck portfolio in 2017, with the recent announcement of the Canyon Denali and the Canyon All Terrain X, a model inspired by and catering to the needs of rugged off-roading.
According to GMC officials, the 2017 Canyon Denali will feature classic chrome detailing, a Jet Black interior with heated leather seating and other premium content alongside a new 3.6L V-6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission that offers a 7,000-pound max trailering rating. Fans of the Denali package on other popular GMC rides will not be disappointed, and the premium features will help make the Canyon continue to be a standout in the small truck market.
New to the Canyon scene, the All Terrain X brings a host of specs desired by the biggest off-roading enthusiasts, like Goodyear DuraTrac all-terrain tires, all-weather floor liners, Hill Descent Control and more powered by the same new Hydra-Matic engine with Active Fuel Management seen in the Denali. Additionally, the All Terrain Canyon will be available with the 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine.
For the 2017 Canyon as a whole, the model will feature a new 7-inch IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system, Standard Teen Driver Mode Technology, the option for the new propulsion system, an upgradable heated steering wheel and new exterior colors, such as Dark Slate Metallic, Mineral Metallic and Red Quartz Metallic.
“Canyon continues to carve out its own niche as the only premium truck in the midsize segment,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, in the Canyon’s latest press release. “With a broader 2017 Canyon lineup and the redesigned Acadia, GMC is offering more choices for finding the premium truck or SUV that matches customers’ design preferences and capability needs.”
