Secure handling, smooth ride quality, responsive steering, fuel efficient engines may not be the attributes that are expected to be associated with pickup trucks but things have definitely changed with reintroduction of the GMC Canyon and its closely related Chevy Colorado. These mid-size trucks have refreshed this niche and have definitely set some benchmarks. The same but may be even more we should expect from the 2018 GMC Canyon.
What will we get?
Aside from mentioned driving qualities, this compact truck is and will be available in several cab and bed configurations and there will also be multiple trim options which will equip this truck according to your needs with everything from work-truck version to modern and luxury equipped family vehicle. Plus we should get upgraded tech features and revised safety equipment. Some styling changes and powertrains modifications might also be seen with arrival of this truck.
2018 GMC Canyon: Exterior, Interior
The styling may not be the major selling point or in the top of the priorities when most of the people buying trucks but 2018 GMC Canyon will surely be in top end of the most appealing utes. The big changes are not announced or expected, in first place because this truck is relatively new in all aspects but some details will be changed.
This truck will look stylish and capable in the same time and it will also preserve the most of its exterior features. Around the grille, that will be available in different forms depending on the trim, and headlights will be slightly different details. The front bumper will also be slightly reshaped as the rear bumper and taillights. New wheel design will also be introduced along side with changed list of the exterior colors.
The cabin of this truck will be treated with high-quality materials and there will also be comfortable seats and plenty of tech and convenience features. Well-sound isolated and nicely designed interior will be the place everybody would like to be.
The new Canyon will be offered in extended and crew cab body styles and two bed lengths. It will likely continue with SL, SLE, SLT and Denali trims. Among them we could expect more standard features, upgraded infotainment system, and more safety options.
2018 GMC Canyon: Powertrains
Some improvements likely in power, fuel efficiency and ride capability and quality will be introduced when the 2018 GMC Canyon arrives in showrooms but exact details are not known at this time.
However, we expect to see the same engine lineup and model will be available with both two- and four-wheel drive. There will also be the choice between a six-speed manual gearbox and matching gears number in automatic transmission.
The base engine will be a 2.5 liter inline four with around 200 hp of power output. Stronger V-6 petrol engine will exceed the boundary of 300 horse powers and the most fuel efficient version will be the current year new 2.8 liter turbodiesel. It will deliver close to 200 hp and impressive torque.
