The all-new GMC Canyon was designed to be efficient and maneuverable, yet it makes a powerful and lasting first impression.
All-new, all-improved The small truck category
SLE and SLT models come equipped with Active Grille Shutters that automatically close when conditions are right, reducing aerodynamic drag and optimizing efficiency.
StabiliTrak with Traction Control helps you stay on course, even during sudden maneuvers, by intelligently managing braking and throttle to help keep the vehicle on its intended path. The manufacturer is proud of the Autotrac transfer case because no other small or midsize pickup offers an automatic transfer case. There is also Trailer Sway Control, available Hill Descent Control that allows for a controlled descent in rough terrain without use of the brake pedal, and Automatic Locking Rear Differential for increased traction is also available.
The 2015 Canyon small pickup offers technology to help you stay connected and in control. OnStar offers available 4G LTE built-in Wi-Fi hotspot so you stay connected to the internet and your favorite apps anywhere you go. It's available and ready to connect to your devices on the go. The standard Rear Vision Camera helps to provide clarity and peace of mind while maneuvering and parking your Canyon — even in the tightest or smallest of spots. It provides a view behind the vehicle, which is displayed in the radio screen.
Canyon delivers an easy-to-use cargo box with plenty of functional features. It features the largest cargo box in a midsized pickup with an integrated CornerStep rear bumper for easy access to the box. Available upper tie-downs can be placed in different locations to help you manage cargo of many shapes and sizes, and available accessories help you manage cargo of all shapes and sizes. There is also available EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate and spray-on bed liner. So, there is plenty of options for any kind of things you'd want to carry around in your car.
The GMC Canyon's safety and Driver Alert technologies help provide peace of mind for the unexpected. Using cameras to watch where you may not be able to see, these available features let you know when you may be approaching another vehicle too quickly or when you're leaving your driving lane. Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning may save you from very dangerous situations. There is also StabiliTrak with Traction Control what helps you stay on course, even during sudden maneuvers, by intelligently managing braking and throttle. ■
