The 2018 GMC Canyon is a mid-size pickup truck that looks exactly like a downsized GMC Sierra, carrying the strikingly similar style and the ability as well. Here we would highlight the advanced features that we gathered from the Escondido GMC dealership about the 2018 GMC Canyon.
The Look and Feel
Clad in chrome, the 2018 GMC Canyon with bigger wheels in a big rectangular shape, this truck from GMC wears a smart look in support of indented wheel arches. The large vertical grille would catch your attention the first time you look at it. A pair of distinctive headlights with their somber look make this Canyon a handsome pickup.
Though the 2018 GMC Canyon is much smaller than the full-size trucks, the space it offers in its cabin is almost equal to its bigger counterparts especially in the front-passenger section. The rear-seat roominess is medium. The entire front seating of the cabin is leather-appointed which is Jet Black in color with Cobalt Red stitching at its well-finished rims available with the ‘All Terrain’ package.
What’s New for 2018?
For 2018, the GMC Canyon pickup truck receives minor changes. We see a washer-fluid-level sensor made standard on all its trim models while the heated exterior mirrors and the Active Tow feature are now made available. The towing system of the Canyon helps the driver to align the pickup correctly especially in the events of reversing the pickup in order to hook up the trailer. This feature is observed as standard on the V-6 as well as on the diesel models but are still not available with the inline-four version.
A new Exterior Trim package named as the Black Out is included along with the Nightfall package. The exterior color options include a Satin Steel Metallic and Marine Blue Metallic to join the existing paint-color palette.
Engine and Transmission
The 2018 GMC Canyon is available with an exclusive diesel inline-four engine that is honored because of its fuel efficiency and towing capacity that can carry a weight up to 7700 pounds. The 2018 Canyon has two distinctive cab and cargo-bed styles that can be paired from any of the different powertrain choices. While the base creates a 200-hp from the inline-four engine in combination with a standard six-speed manual, the other one makes a 308-hp from the V-6 engine and is exceedingly quick. The mini Duramax diesel model on the other hand is known for making 369 lb.-ft of torque. With a towing capacity of carrying 7,700 pounds, it continues with its usual fuel efficiency that counts an EPA rating of 22 in the city drives and 30 mpg on the highways.
The experts in the GMC Escondido admitted the fact that the 2018 GMC Canyon might not be the most spacious pickup truck for carrying good number of suitcases inside its cab, but it has one of the largest cargo-bed volumes, with significantly more space for several smaller items when compared with its rivals.
The two choices of cab have the same kind of layout and storage space for the 2018 edition measuring same bed lengths. The total cargo space measures 41 cubic feet which is no less than any of its competitors.
