For 2012, GMC adds improved Bluetooth connectivity to the Canyon's option list, while a sliding rear window becomes standard on the SLE-2 4WD Extended Cab model. All 4WD and Crew Cab models gain an automatic locking rear differential.
For 2010, head curtain airbags are now standard on all models, the optional 5.3-liter V8 gains variable valve timing and the ZQ8 Sport Suspension package is now available on two-wheel drive Extended Cab and Crew Cab SL1 models.
A host of new equipment includes revised wheels, more standard equipment on SLT and Work
Truck trims and an improved Z71 package. Enhanced safety features include standard StabiliTrak stability control and a new braking system. A 5.3-liter V8 can now be ordered on both Extended and Crew Cab models and the sport-oriented ZQ8 suspension package is revived for 2009.
GMC’s 2015 Canyon is a midsize
truck that has plenty of capability – it can tow a 7,000-pound trailer (best in class) or carry over 1,600 pounds of payload – yet it's small enough to park in a garage. There are plenty of combinations: Extended Cab or Crew Cab, 5- or 6-foot bed, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. Setting it apart from the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier are the Canyon's powerful engines, standout styling and interior refinement. It has best-in-class fuel economy and is first in its class to offer features like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. Other cool tech features should also attract owners of
crossover SUVs who left the midsize truck market when changes slowed to a stop.
