18 City / 25 Highway
Automotive Editor -

Last year, GMC rolled out an American alternative to the midsize pickups long-proffered by Toyota and Nissan. As it turned out, the Canyon was just what the market ordered. With this year's increased production capacity, we expect even more buyers to take one home.

What's New For 2016

A turbodiesel four-cylinder engine joins the option list.

Choosing Your GMC Canyon

The Canyon takes its styling cues from the full-size Sierra, including a towering chromed grille, LED accent lighting, and tasteful fender bulges. The effect is both modern and comfortably imposing. The Canyon is offered in two configurations: an extended cab with narrow rear-hinged back doors and a 6-foot bed, and a four-door crew cab with your choice of a 5- or 6-foot bed.

The extended cab's standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces 200 horsepower, enough for everyday driving and light hauling. The available 3.6-liter V6, which comes standard on the crew cab, provides a boost to 305 horsepower and allows the Canyon to tow up to 7,000 pounds.

Your third option is the new 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel four-cylinder, which puts out 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Models so equipped can pull up to 7,700 pounds and come standard with an integrated brake controller and an automatic locking rear differential.

A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with the Duramax engine and on all other configurations except the rear-drive extended cab, which starts out with a six-speed manual. Four-wheel drive with auto mode is available across the board.

Both cab styles are available in three trim levels:

Base

Comes with several unexpected standard features like a rearview camera, a power driver seat, and a six-speaker sound system with color display. The available Convenience package adds keyless entry, cruise control, a rear-window defogger, and GMC's EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate.

SLE

Gets the contents of the Base model's Convenience package, plus a leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum interior trim, satellite radio, a soft-touch dashboard with an 8-inch infotainment interface, 17-inch wheels, and slightly revised exterior trim. The SLE can get a Convenience package of its own with automatic climate control, remote start, and a sliding rear window. There's also a Driver Alert package featuring forward collision alert and lane departure warning. Available on both two-wheel and four-wheel drive models is the All-Terrain package with an off-road suspension, a locking rear differential, hill descent control, and heated front seats with passenger power.

SLT

Receives many of the SLE's options as standard, plus a leather interior, heated side mirrors, additional chrome exterior trim, and 18-inch polished aluminum wheels. The Driver Alert package continues as an option, but the All-Terrain package is not available (although its locking rear differential is standard).

Additional options for the SLE and SLT include a Bose 7-speaker sound system and navigation. All trims can get a variety of cargo organizing and bed protection features.

CarsDirect Tip

The base Canyon is not nearly as austere as you might expect for any entry-level pickup. Just make sure to get the Convenience package if you want the full complement of car-like features. Whether to upgrade to the SLE or SLT depends on how much style and luxury you expect from a truck.
