GMC Canyon Revealed in Detroit

GMC CanyonThe 2015 GMC Canyon is finally here. It bowed in at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit a few weeks ago.

Back in November, when General Motors revealed its sibling, the new Chevrolet Colorado, GM promised a distinct look for the Canyon and it definitely got one. There will be no mistaking one for the other, despite their shared underpinnings.

The Canyon has a much beefier look with squared-off edges and a tall, intense grille with chrome horizontal bars. The wheel arches stick out more than they do on the Colorado, giving the Canyon a solid, wide stance.

GM wants the Canyon to be the mid-size truck for the modern era. It will be more refined than its competitors and offer an 8-inch color touchscreen along with multiple USB ports and will be capable of being a WiFi hotspot.

One feature that is sure to keep families happy is the Teen Driver system. This lets parents set limits on speed and will even mute the radio until both the driver and possible front passenger have buckled up. And the Canyon will even send a “report card” home to let Mom and Dad know how their son or daughter is driving.

We can’t wait until we get the 2015 GMC Canyon on our showroom floor.
