Mid-size pickup trucks are almost totally disappeared from the U.S. market. Even the GMC, for several years, stopped their production. Fortunately for all fans of these vehicles, that did not last long. We all have expected reborn of GM’s Canyon at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, but that didn’t happen. What did happen is official presentation of his brother 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. Since these are two very similar vehicles, we can assume that official presentation of 2015 GMS Canyon is scheduled for North American International Auto Show in Detroit next January. This model will fill the three years gap without GM’s mid-size truck.
2015 GMC Canyon comes with new look
We assumed that new 2015 GMC Canyon will be very similar to new Colorado, but different information is coming from GMC. It seems that this truck will have its own, distinctive look. However it doesn’t have much room for innovation and we think it will resemble at smaller Sierra. Spy photos, which are circulating over the internet, are proving our theory. Judging by the same photos we can say that new Canyon will get smoother lines and more aerodynamic.
2015 GMC Canyon engine options
It is expected that 2015 GMC Canyon comes with several engine choices. First one should be 2.5 liter naturally-aspirated gasoline I4 LCV. The stronger gasoline engine should be 3.6 liter V6 LFX. There is also going to be one diesel option. It is going to be 2.5 liter turbo-diesel, rated at 150 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque or 2.8 liter turbo-diesel which delivers 180 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. All engines should be matched with a six-speed automatic transmission. Power will be transferred on rear or all wheels, depending on owner’s choice.
Price and mass production
We cannot tell you exact price of new 2015 GMC Canyon, but it should be in range of $20,000 for basic model. Price for full trim model will, probably go over $35,000. The mass production should start at second half of 2014 in Wentzville, Missouri.
