Seek Adventure in Your New GMC Canyon

By Justin Cupler | August 6th, 2018

Get a midsize pickup that’s smart on the inside and brawny on the outside. Get the 2019 GMC Canyon, which boasts newly updated infotainment systems and an upgraded rearview camera on all but the base model. There are plenty of new features to love about this truck, but the same old muscle under the metal is just as dependable as ever. Not only will you have powertrain options, but also multiple bed configurations to tailor it to your needs. Take a peek at the options to understand which one might be right for you.

The base engine on the 2019 Canyon is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. This engine is available with a six-speed manual transmission on two-wheel drive extended-cab SL or base trims. Jump up to 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque with the available 3.6-liter V-6 gas engine that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The V-6 comes with active fuel management that shuts down some cylinders when you don’t need the extra power to help save on fuel.

When it’s time to switch to diesel, the GMC Canyon has a Duramax diesel engine just for you. The 2.8-liter inline four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine delivers an impressive 369 pound-feet of torque and 181 horsepower. The Canyon with the Duramax engine allows you to tow up to 7,700 pounds, making this an obvious choice for drivers who need a truck that’s a pro at hauling. The smart diesel exhaust brake system on this powertrain enhances your control and reduces brake wear and tear due to steep grades.

You can choose to equip your 2019 Canyon with trailer sway control to keep both you and your trailer headed the same direction. The hill start assist holds the truck in place on inclines so you have time to swap your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator. The StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover mitigation tech comes standard so you’ll have extra confidence – even in less-than-ideal driving conditions.

The GMC Canyon comes in SL, Canyon, SLE, All Terrain, SLT, and Denali models. Your cab and bed configurations to choose from include an extended cab model with a 6-foot-2-inch bed for added hauling. Get a crew cab with a 5-foot 2-inch bed and a crew cab with a 6-foot 2-inch bed. Drop the tailgate and the 6-foot 2-inch bed allows you to haul items up to 8 feet without issue. Plus, the CornerStep rear bumper makes it easy to load the bed, and the available spray-on bedliner helps keep your truck’s bed looking new.

Inside, you’ll discover a comfortable cabin that’s as practical as it is stylish. The front seats are available in fine, perforated leather and include dual-density seat foam for support on those long jobs or just cruising around town. Upgrade to the available heat and ventilation in your seats for all-weather comfort. Stay connected with the available 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and powered up with the available wireless charging station on the SLT and Denali models.
