2018 Canyon


2018 GMC Canyon

The 2018 GMC Canyon has a pretty specific bill to fill; offer a premium product with as much practicality as possible. Seems impossible, doesn't it? How can a small pick-up be practical and premium? Not everybody needs a full-size pick-up truck; the nimbleness and ease of parking a small pick-up has huge benefits, especially if an urban commute is your bread and butter. But you aren't making big sacrifices either, with three cab and box configurations and the choice of two-wheel-drive and four-wheel drive to check even more of the practicality requirements demanded by owners, as well as the flexibility of gas or diesel engine options. And premium? Like every GMC product, safety and quality are not simply desired, but mandated, and with standard features like a power-adjustable driver's seat, daytime-running lights, a 7" color touchscreen with Bluetooth connectivity, ABS and stability control across the range, it is hard to say the Canyon is just a basic tool.

If you want a truck that will do the job with no complaints, and get you to and from the worksite with no fuss, the class-leading 2.5-liter, 200HP and 191lb-ft 4-cylinder gasoline engine is the perfect work partner. With a 6sp manual gearbox, it offers up to 26MPG and a 3,500lbs towing capacity to go with a payload potential of at least 1,400lbs, this engine will take almost anything you can throw at it.

Of course, you might want a truck for more than just the basic needs of work; weekends might demand the hauling of a boat or camper, and more grunt is required; for those very moments GMC offers two alternatives. A smooth and powerful 3.6-liter, 308HP and 275lb-ft V6 mated to an even smoother 8sp automatic can tow 7,000lbs, and, with Active Fuel Management technology, up to 25MPG. For those who like real stump-pulling potential, a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel carrying the famed Duramax name pumps out 181HP and a huge 369lb-ft of torque, while giving you the reassurance of towing a maximum of 7,700lbs. Its 6sp auto means 30MPG can be achieved, and with the benefit of switchable exhaust braking, you can slow down more efficiently and easily while towing or driving down steep inclines.

There's certain features you come to expect these days and you won't be disappointed by the Canyon; power windows, rearview camera, a USB port, six-speaker audio in conjunction with the aforementioned equipment above make it a well-equipped truck indeed. 

Work up the range to the SLE and niceties like a bigger 8" color touchscreen are made standard, along with a 4.2" color trip display, leather-wrapped steering wheel and cruise control for the driver. Remote keyless entry is a nice touch, as are the chrome exterior highlights and 17" alloy wheels to show this isn't just a work truck.

The V6 comes standard on the SLT and gives the front passenger a power-adjustable seat as well as heated seating for both in the front, plus automatic climate-control air conditioning and remote start. 18" wheels dress up the exterior and help fill the muscular guards, and a handy sliding rear window is also featured.

Fully-loaded pick-ups don't come anymore loaded than the Canyon Denali. The most advanced safety equipment is standard, like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, plus a trailering package, and a color-coded rear bumper with 20" machined alloy wheels are exterior highlights that will leave you feeling even prouder to park a Canyon in the drive. A BOSE premium audio system and a navigation system are the interior highlights.

If ever there was any doubt over the long-term ownership experience when buying into the GMC family, let that be dispelled now. GMC Pro Grade Protection includes two maintenance visits, a 3-year, 36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5-year, 60,000 mile powertrain warranty. On top of that, you get a five year/60,000 mile roadside assistance and courtesy transportation package should the very unlikely event of an issue occur during your Canyon ownership experience. We don't think it will, but peace of mind is very nice to have when you already have all the truck you'll ever need.
