Shawn Ryan is the Vehicle Architect of the 2015 GMC Canyon. In the video below, he explains that in designing the Canyon, the goal was to combine innovation and efficiency into one attractive package. The result is that the Canyon has both… in spades.

For starters, it’s more efficient, but still has that full-size truck DNA (which is probably due to its K2-derived underpinnings). The Canyon also incorporates many segment firsts, including available high-tech safety features (like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning), unique new methods to store things in the bed, DuraLife brake rotors, corner-step rear bumper, EZ Lift-and-Lower lift tailgate, and projector beam headlights, which truly add a nice touch.
