GMC’s all-new 2015 Canyon midsize pickup truck will start at $21,880 when it arrives at dealers this fall, offering consumers the convenience of owning a pickup truck in a smaller, more affordable package compared to the full-size Sierra.
Additional trim levels and options will quickly drive the price of the 2015 Canyon north. The mid-range SLE trim level starts at $27,520 for a 2WD extended cab model, which sees the addition of aluminum interior trim panels, a soft-touch instrument panel and door pads, EZ-lift and lower tailgate, an eight-inch color-touch screen with Intellilink infotainment and OnStar’s 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot technology. From there, a 4WD Canyon SLT Crew Cab is available for $37,875; it adds leather-appointed seating, automatic climate control, 18-inch cast-aluminium wheels, remote start, and a rear-differential. Other optional amenities include a Bose premium seven-speaker audio system and GM’s GearOn accessory system.
The standard engine on the Canyon is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder Ecotec I4 producing 200 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models, while a six-speed manual option is available only when combined with four-cylinder, two-wheel drive, extended-cab base models. The optional 305 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 LFX is available only with the six-speed automatic.
Canyon buyers will also be able to choose from multiple cab and bed configurations. These include Extended-Cab models with a 6-foot 2-inch box, or Crew Cab models with either the 6-foot 2-inch or a 5-foot 2-inch box.
All prices listed include a $925 dealer freight charge. All Canyons also come with GM’s Pro Grade Protection, which includes a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and two years or 24,000 miles of standard scheduled maintenance. More detailed pricing and EPA-estimated fuel economy figures will be announced closer to the Canyon’s on-sale date, GMC says.
