GMC Canyon to Feature Broader 2017 Lineup


With an 18-percent sales increase so far this year, GMC today announced a broader 2017 GMC Canyon lineup, which features the new Canyon Denali and All Terrain X.

“Canyon continues to carve out its own niche as the only premium truck in the midsize segment,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of sales and marketing at GMC. “With a broader 2017 Canyon lineup and the redesigned Acadia, GMC is offering more choices for finding the premium truck or SUV that matches customers’ design preferences and capability needs.”

Chrome exterior details and 20-inch, ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels, along with exclusive interior trim and content, distinguish the new Canyon Denali.

Additional standard features include: A heated steering wheel, GMC IntelliLink with Navigation and an 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, automatic climate control, full-color driver information center, remote start, Bose seven-speaker audio system, two USB charging ports on the rear of the center console and another inside the console, and Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.

The new vehicle also features a new 3.6L V-6 engine that’s paired with a segment-first eight-speed automatic transmission.

This new system is offered across the 2017 Canyon lineup, including the new All Terrain X package.

The special version of the All Terrain package, offered on the SLE model, features Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac all-terrain tires and all-weather floor liners, off-road suspension and transfer case shield, body-color grille surround and rear step bumper, interior red stitching and heated front seats, Hill Descent Control, 17-inch aluminum wheels, 3-inch-diameter round step bars, spray-on bedliner, remote start, automatic climate control, and sliding rear window.

The 2017 model year updates, including the new V-6 and eight-speed combination, will arrive at dealerships later this year.
