GMC Canyon sales were flat in the third quarter of 2018 while increasing 8.6 percent in the first nine months of the year. So in what could potentially be an effort to propel sales of the midsize truck, GMC has introduced an attractive Canyon discount for the month of October 2018.
The nationwide incentive on the 2018 GMC Canyon for October 2018 is as follows:
- $2,500 bonus cash + $500 customer cash for $3,000 total cash allowance
As such, the Canyon appears to be one of the vehicles that runs contrary to GM’s strategy of reducing incentive spending in order to boost per-unit profit, since the $3,000 discount represents roughly 10 percent of the base Canyon’s value.
It should be noted that the incentive is applicable to all 2018 GMC Canyon trim levels except for SL models.
For reference, the applicable 2018 GMC Canyon trim levels and their corresponding MSRPs are as follows:
- Canyon – $30,495
- SLE – $33,695
- All Terrain – $35,795
- SLT – $35,795
- Denali – $40,595
- Must take delivery by October 31, 2018.
- Some may not qualify for the offer(s).
- Incentives are not available with special finance, lease, and some other offers.
- Incentive for the United States of America, unless otherwise specified.
- See dealer for details.
We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information about the vehicles and their incentives in question, but errors and misprints can happen. In addition, the manufacturer can change incentive information at any time and without notice. Always consult with your dealer regarding color availability information before making purchase decisions. GM Authority will not be held responsible for any misprints, typos or any other errors.
About GMC Canyon
The GMC Canyon is a mid-size pickup truck marketed by GM's GMC brand. It is currently GMC's smallest pickup truck, slotting under the full-size GMC Sierra. The current model was introduced in 2015 and represents the second generation of the Canyon nameplate. It rides on the GMT-31XX platform shared with the Chevy Colorado, as well as the international-market Chevrolet Colorado/S10 and Chevrolet Trailblazer. As of September 2018, the GMC Canyon is offered only in the United States and Canada; it is not offered in the two other markets in which GMC does business - Mexico and the Middle East.
The 2018 GMC Canyon represents the fourth model year of the second-generation Canyon. The vehicle remains highly competitive in its segment, offering two gasoline engines and a diesel motor, which is a segment exclusive. As opposed to its Chevy-badged brother, the Chevy Colorado, the Canyon does not offer an off-road-specific model like the Colorado ZR2. However, the Canyon does offer a luxury-focused Canyon Denali model. Some of the biggest criticisms of the second-gen Canyon include a lack of various desired features wanted by many present and potential customers, including a moonroof, a sliding rear window, and an extreme offroad model.
The 2019 GMC Canyon represents the fifth model year of the second-generation Canyon. The vehicle sees new exterior colors and a new set of bright silver 17-inch wheels on the SLE model. Additionally, the 2019 Canyon gets new set of infotainment systems that represent the third generation of GMC infotainment systems, a second in-cabin microphone for the front passenger, a high-definition Rear Vision Camera on some models, UltraSonic Rear Park Assist, a heated steering wheel on SLT and All Terrain models, and 6-way power driver seat on some models. There's also a rearrangement of USB ports in the front and back.
A midcycle refresh for the 2020 model year is expected to bring revised front and rear styling along with interior and powertrain updates. There's also the expected introduction of the Canyon AT4 to replace the Canyon All Terrain. The GMC Canyon is built at the GM Wentzville factory in Missouri operated by GM USA.
