2015 GMC CANYON: A major all-new midsize truck will be on display in the GMC exhibit during the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. We’re talking about the redesigned 2015 GMC Canyon, with powerful exterior presence that inside out reflects pure GMC technology-infused design. Offered in base, SLE and SLT models, the 2015 Canyon comes in three body configurations, plus in rear-wheel and four-wheel drive set-ups. Consumers can opt for an extended cab design with a six-foot bed, a crew cab with a five-foot bed and a crew cab with a six-ft. bed. When the tailgate is down, the six-ft. bed allows eight-foot-long items to be hauled within the vehicle. A pair of engines are offered, engineered to be more powerful and efficient. Standard, is the 193 horsepower 2.5-liter four cylinder engine, with a 302hp 3.6L V-6 available. Both powerplants are matched with a six-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual gearbox is also available with the base extended cab two-wheel models. Canyon offers a maximum payload between 1400-1450 pounds, and maximum 6700 towing capacity. All models wear the bold front-end styling that contains the segment’s only standard projector beam headlights and GMC’s C-shaped LED daytime running lamps. Exterior features to note are the CornerStep rear bumper, EZ Lift-and-Lower locking tailgate, bed rail and tailgate protectors, and two-tier loading platform split into upper and lower sections, 13 reconfigurable and four stationary tie-down locations, and all-new aluminum hood. Large rearview mirrors and rear-vision camera system offers greater visibility, plus the ’15 Canyon offers segment-first forward collision alert and lane departure warning technologies.
