2015 GMC Canyon To Start At $21,88020
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.

And I assume a Colorado will be about $1k less, so around $21k. That sounds very good.
Nice job, GM execs. Now just come out with very good MPG numbers, and these things will be a solid hit, which is absolutely essential with the heavy competition in the truck marketplace from Ford and Ram.
$1k less at entry, top trim level (Z71 vs SLT) it is $3k less, albeit with less features.
The high end of 4×4 range is already overpriced. This does not bode well as compared to the Toyota Tacoma and its’ Sierra brother.
I’m not going to breakdown all the different option types, as I’m sure that will give me a headache, but Chevy pricing looks to be very competitive with the Toyota. I am sure the GMC will be a bit higher, but it better be, otherwise there’s no point in having a Chevy and a GMC version. So I don’t see that as a problem — I’m going to go on a (small) limb and say the 2015 GMC is going to be much nicer than anything from Toyota.
Here’s an article from the WSJ stating the base price for the Colorado is $500 less than the Tacoma (which is exactly what GM needed to do).
With the average price of a vehicle today around $35K this is not unreasonable. All vehicles are over priced but at the market rates today this is inline.
Now before you start comparing it to a Tacoma I would recommend getting into the truck and really checking it out. I think you will find the level of refinement of these trucks and the size just being a little better to justify the slight difference in price.
I had predicted $19,999 – $39,999 and I did not miss it by much.
I have not driven it yet but I have been inside the new Chevy and I really liked what I saw. Keep in mind with the loaded trucks they will include things like Bose sound systems and even new Web Link.
When you are the unproven up and comer you don’t have the luxury of overpricing your new truck. Toyota has undoubted reputation of quality and off-road capability. GM simply does not.
The one ace GM has is fuel economy. They likely have toyota beat in that area very clearly. This will be interesting to see how the market responds.
I thought and hoped the base model of both the Chevy and GMC would start just under $20K and go up to the mid $30K range from there, but this isn’t too far off and not that bad. Since the chassis design comes from the global Colorado and I’m sure has been refined for the American truck buyer, I have no doubt its quality, reliability, capabilities and reputation will stand up just fine to the archaic Tacoma and Frontier.
I just hope we don’t see a mid $40K price tag on a fully loaded 4×4 or when the diesel finally drops. Then they will be competing with the RAM diesel and other more capable full size trucks with almost the same luxury options.
Did you just use Toyota in the same sentence as quality? Have you been in one lately? Let’s get real here..
I do not see a problem with them being seen as unproven. These are pretty much 3/4 scale versions of the full sized truck at 3/4 the price. trust me once you see it in person and get inside of one you realize this is not anything close to the past models.
Also the price of todays trucks as increased much and I expect to see a Lessing of the rebates as Ford will not be able to put as much on the hood and GM will want to hold the line to give these trucks their own space. Ram will discount as they have for years until they up the content of their trucks.
Also look at the long term of what will come. All the full size will incorporate more aluminum that will drive up cost. Ford is hiding it but you will pay for it in the end with less rebates or a price increase after the intro.
Also watch as all three will move to these smaller trucks to replace the half ton trucks. the 3/4 and 1 ton have less fuel restrictions and we will see these continue but I expect all three to offer a smaller than half ton truck. Ford already has one that is already legal for the regulations here and Fiat is testing a small truck now.
The fact is mass in the half ton segment is key and we will have to see changes in the future on how these trucks are built and sold.
I know many love to say Diesel but it is not going to save the segment. The automakers wish it would but the reality is the price of the engines, fuel and increasing regulations by the government will strangle and limit the future in this segment.
These truck will do well and I think many who are critics need to really get close to one to see this is not just another Colorado like the last. The target and strategy for this truck is a little different this time around. No more 1982 Camaro like interior and no third world refinement as the last one.
This truck will not win over all half ton owner but it will take a big chunk of the suburban truck owner that likes the feel of a larger truck but are tired of the $50K prices and 15-16 MPG in the city that most see. Yes I know that they can do better but in stop and go traffic most see 15 MPG.
One only has to look to the growth of the smaller CUV and Smaller SUV markets to see that GM is not taking as much of a risk as it once would have see this as.
People are down sizing due to the economy and fuel cost. This is why vehicles like the Nox and Terrain are so much more popular than the Tahoe and Yukon once were. While they are not knocking out the larger one it has taken a larger bite of their segment than we had ever thought we would see. Both models account for right around 300,000 units even with a 5 year old model.
I see the truck market getting split up much like the SUV market with a size and price for everyone.
The only reason Toyota rules now is there is no competition.
You have to give Toyota credit where credit is due. They have delivered a solid mid-size truck, yet it does need an update for better fuel economy.
There is one thing about GM trucks lately that iritate myself and likely many others.
-why do they insist on selling trucks with a regular rear window?!
-many people would buy a different model just because of this one simple feature which is hard to spec on a gm truck. I didn’t see one Colorado show truck with a sliding rear window, only one top of the line GMC Canyon. On a Toyota you can get a sliding rear window on the SR5 model and up.
GM, don’t cheap out. Make trucks that people want. All the midsize players have this feature. It is inexcusable to cheap out on this feature.
Contrary to your beliefs not everyone wants a slider. I have had them , never used them and will never own one again.
You do understand that any truck can easily have one installed at the dealer. They just pop in and out as there is no difference in the cabs or if it was installed at the factory or at the dealer.. Often I have seen people get one installed as part of their deal with no extra charge.
Yes they do have one for this truck.
I’m hoping for a Denali package. *fingers crossed*
Trent if it has a GMC on it the vehicle will get an over priced but highly profitable Denali package.
My hope is it will be a package like the full size trucks that offered real hardware vs. just extra chrome/trim like some models.
If the package will be anything like my Terrain Denali, it will be worth the extra money.
The Terrain Denali is a complete waste of money. Sure, the interior is full of soft-touch materials, but that should have came standard instead of the hard plastic on SLE and SLT models. It also lacks a Heads Up Display, Dual Climate, UltraView, Digital Gauge Cluster, and other thing’s that make it a true Denali vehicle.
This is my first Denali vehicle, and I’m impressed. I imagine the things you mentioned were not part of the Terrain’s package to keep it at a certain price point. In the end it’s all about having the right price point to move vehicles off dealer lots,.
Just an observation from a different tangent, I often see trucks of this size in the U.K and in many European countries, and it would appear to my untrained eye, in increasing numbers. My guess is that if G.M equipped this truck with a modern diesel engine then not only would they have a truck with headline grabbing M.P.G but also a product that would sell all over the world. I am aware that Chevrolet has pulled out of Europe, but this size of truck looks perfect for our less generous roads.
GM could return with a GMC version very easily to Europe if enough market demand is seen. I am not sure if there is enough demand yet.
Lets see just how good the Diesel is first.
Now imagine a twin turbo V6 Syclone version of this truck.
The 2016 GMC Canyon Syclone.
I think because it being less weight than the full size PU It would make a great SS model with a 6 speed stick or eight speed auto and a v6 turbo plant and option 5.3 supercharger. I would buy one
