What’s New on the 2017 GMC Canyon?

Wondering what’s new on the 2017 GMC Canyon? We just got confirmation on an estimated 2017 GMC Canyon Canadian release date and some of the elite enhanced features that we can expect to see in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba for the coming year. Keep reading to learn more about the good news about this premium truck.

Read More: 2016 GMC Canyon Wins Best Midsize Pickup Truck of the Year 

2017 GMC Canyon Canadian Release Date

The new 2017 GMC Canyon will be available in Canada starting in the fourth quarter of this year. In addition to the standard trims that were available on the 2016 GMC Canyon, the 2017 model of this midsize truck will be available in the elite Denali trim and the off-road optimized All Terrain X model which has first appeared on the GMC Sierra.

We’ve covered more information about these two specialty models in our previous post about the 2017 GMC Canyon release date. Other new and updated features include a revised IntelliLink infotainment system with a seven-inch colour touchscreen, standard Teen Driver feature with that system, an available heated steering wheel and three new exterior colours: Dark Slate Metallic, Mineral Metallic, and Red Quartz Metallic.

Powertrain Enhancements on the 2017 GMC Canyon

The 2017 GMC Canyon will also be available with a new 3.6-litre engine and advanced eight-speed automatic transmission. Featuring advanced fuel-saving technology like continuously variable valve timing, Active Fuel Management (also known as cylinder deactivation) and direct injection, this powertrain should be able to deliver excellent low fuel-consumption numbers while also delivering premium towing and hauling. This engine and transmission should be able to tow up to 3,175 kilograms, which comes second in the segment only when compared to the Duramax diesel engine also available on the 2017 GMC Canyon.

We believe that this same efficient and powerful new transmission and engine combination should also be available on the 2017 Chevy Colorado. For more information on the 2017 GMC Canyon Canadian release date and new features, contact Craig Dunn Motor City.

Is a Full-size or Midsize GMC Truck Best for You?

2016 GMC Sierra vs 2016 GMC Canyon

Truck shoppers in the market for a hard working truck may naturally lean toward the GMC brand, thanks to its premium power and refined interior and exterior quality. While many owners may know exactly the power and capabilities they want in their vehicle, some may be torn between a powerful full-sized model, or a midsize options. We’re going to compare the 2016 GMC Sierra vs the 2016 GMC Canyon so that truck shoppers can decide which model is best for them.

Body Style Options

Body style will be a significant difference between these two trucks, simply because of the distance between full- and midsize models. The 2016 GMC Canyon is offered in extended cab body style or a crew cab model with two bed-length options. The 2016 Sierra is available in two-door regular cab body style, double cab or crew cab models. Most of these body styles are available with a choice of bed lengths, most of which are longer than the beds available on the 2016 Canyon.

Maneuverability

While the 2016 GMC Sierra can certainly hold and handle larger payloads, truck owners often want a versatile vehicle that can also function well as a daily commuting vehicle. No matter what body style chosen, the 2016 GMC Canyon will be easier to park and maneuver through the press of city and town traffic when compared to its larger full-size sibling.

Towing

The 2016 GMC Sierra can tow an award-winning maximum of 5,443 kilograms when properly equipped with the available max trailering package. The 2016 GMC Canyon, with its smaller build and dimensions, tops out at 3,039 kilograms.

Payload

When it comes to payload, the 2016 GMC Canyon has less sheer power, but still delivers impressive capability. This midsize truck can handle up to 657 kilograms of payload while the full-size 2016 Sierra can handle up to 1,025 kilograms.

Fuel Consumption

The mid-size Canyon is able to offer significantly better fuel efficiency than the 2016 Sierra. The 2016 GMC Canyon can make 13 L/100km in the city and 9.2 highway with its gas V6, compared to the Sierra’s 13.5 and 10 L/100km respectively.

2015 GMC Canyon is the Top Pickup

The all-new GMC Canyon was recently released and we were even more excited when it arrived on our lot. It is classy, comfortable, fuel efficient and has impressive performance capabilities. You don’t have to take our word for it though. The 2015 GMC Canyon is the top pickup choice by Cars.com. The editors of this popular and reliable website compared a wide variety of midsize pickups before coming to this conclusion.

Cars.com is one of the leading destinations for online car shopping. They are able to provide credible and easy-to-understand information from consumers and experts to help car shoppers find the vehicle that best fits their needs. The site averages 30 million visits each month, which just goes to show what a huge honor this is for the GMC Canyon. Before Cars.com came to the conclusion that the Canyon was the top pickup truck, they went through a rigorous testing process.

The trucks were tested for a range of capabilities including performance, seating, technology, ride experience, visibility, value and off-road capability. There were special tracks used to test each vehicle for braking and acceleration performance. They also had unbiased pickup truck shoppers test each truck to get even more opinions. The 2015 GMC Canyon came out on top due in part to its premium design, maneuverability and performance.

This isn’t the only award the GMC Canyon has earned either. Earlier this year it was named Autoweek’s Best of the Best Truck for 2015. If you are interested in learning more about this award-winning vehicle, call or visit Craig Dunn Motor City in the Winnipeg area. You can even schedule a test drive to see what other drivers are already loving about this impressive midsize pickup truck. Visit Craig Dunn Motor City today and drive home in a brand new Chevy, GMC or Buick vehicle.

Check Out These Fuel Efficient GM Vehicles

Whether gas prices are on the rise or dropping, it’s never fun to fill up. That demand can be even worse if you have serious towing and hauling needs. Fortunately, we have a list of some of the most fuel efficient GM vehicles in Canada and available on the Craig Dunn lot.

Fuel Efficient Chevy cars

Some of the top fuel efficient models are also some of the most user friendly. The 2016 Chevy Malibu is an excellent sedan and, when outfitted with an optional hybrid powertrain with technology lifted from the electric Chevy Volt it can offer a segment-topping fuel consumption of 4.9 L/100km in city driving, 5.2 L/100km on the highway for 5.0 L/100km combined. Even the standard 1.5-litre turbo powertrain is projected to hit 6.4 L/100km on the highway.

For those in the market for a small SUV, the a new Chevy Trax can also offer 7 L/100km or 5 L/100km on highway driving.

Other top fuel-efficient Chevy vehicles include:

  • Chevy Volt
  • Chevy Sonic
  • Chevy Cruze Eco
  • Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel

Fuel Efficient Trucks in Canada

Sedans and small cars aren’t always what you need to get the job done, but GM can also offer fuel efficient trucks that can work hard without costing you an arm and a leg at the pump. It was recently announced that the diesel versions of the 2016 Chevy Colorado and the 2016 GMC Canyon were on the very top of fuel efficiency for Canada and North America. Clean diesel fuel has long been acknowledged as one of the most efficient fueling options and both the 2016 Chevy Colorado diesel and the 2016 GMC Canyon diesel offer a stunning combined city and highway driving fuel efficiency of 9.4 L/100km with two wheel drive. They achieve this number without sacrificing any towing or hauling capability.

GMC Canyon Interior Highlights

Canyon’s Award-Winning Interior

Vehicles can win awards for a variety of reasons. Recently we learned that the 2015 GMC Canyon was awarded the top pickup choice by Cars.com and this week the Canyon has won again. This time GM is being recognized for the Canyon’s award-winning interior. Every year WardsAuto.com creates a list of the 10 best automotive interiors and this year the Canyon made this prestigious list. Let’s take a closer look at what drivers love about this interior.

Last year, General Motors released the all-new GMC Canyon and with it came a redesigned interior. This pickup truck comes with high quality materials, soft surfaces, a Bose audio system, comfortable and durable leather, an easy-to-use touchscreen and advanced safety features. It also has available advanced features including heated power front seats and a second row that can seat up to three passengers comfortably. The second row also conveniently folds down to make room for additional storage.

Pickup trucks might be tough, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have luxurious interiors. The Canyon proves that ruggedness and luxury can go hand in hand. Its interior pays special attention to detail and is available with durable, soft-touch instrument panel, available aluminum trim, available contrast stitching and dual-density seat foam that holds its shape longer and even enhances seat comfort. The 2015 GMC Canyon is full of features to make sure you and your passengers are always comfortable and ready for the road ahead.

What Is the Best Midsize Truck? Try the GMC Canyon

2016 GMC Canyon the Best Midsize Pickup Truck

Midsize trucks are increasing in popularity every year. We have long been in love with the premium and versatile GMC Canyon, but now we have another reason to brag about it! Cars.com just named the 2016 GMC Canyon the Best Midsize Pickup Truck of 2016 for its nimble handling, impressive tow rating, and attractive interior.

Read More: Is a Full-size or Midsize GMC Truck Best for You?

This is the second time that the GMC Canyon has been named the Best Midsize Pickup Truck by Cars.com. Many of the reasons that this truck excels remain the same: it delivers top capability with premium driving.

the attractive and capable 2016 GMC Canyon on a rough road

Canyon First-Place Finishes

In the 2016 Cars.com Midsize Pickup competition, the 2016 GMC Canyon took first-place finishes for its Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR), its light construction, top payload, and max tow rating. It also received the most judges’ points of any vehicle in the competition.

Furthermore, the Canyon consistently took first or second in the majority of categories, which kept it ahead of its sister-vehicle the 2016 Chevy Colorado and the contest runner-up, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Experts appreciated the confident driving and elegant balance that the 2016 GMC Canyon brought to the road.

Other Advantages of the 2016 GMC Canyon

While the Canyon SLE package was the truck that won the Cars.com Best Midsize Truck of 2016 award, other models of the Canyon midsize truck also bring premium value to the truck ower’s life. The GMC Canyon with the optional diesel engine offers incredibly low fuel consumption numbers, and the small dimensions of this truck make it ideal for maneuvering in city environments as well as in the country and off the road.

We are proud of the current generation of the GMC Canyon on our lot, and are even more excited about new models coming out later this year, like the luxurious 2017 GMC Canyon Denali trim.

2016 GMC Canyon Diesel Canadian Truck Challenge 2015

The Canadian Truck King Challenge is a grueling test where all the best trucks and commercial vans of Canada are pitted against each other and against a 70-acre proving ground north of Toronto made up of rocky and hilly terrain and rough roads, ideal for testing the mettle of even the sturdiest vehicles.

In the midsize truck category, the 2016 GMC Canyon Diesel was required to pull 4,000 pounds (1814 kilograms) and haul a payload of 1,000 pounds (453 kilograms) in its bed. The Canyon passed these test with flying colors to take the midsize truck king’s crown, and also came in as a runner up for best overall truck.
