All-New 2015 GMC Canyon Elevates Midsize Truck Segment

Segment-redefining capabilities, refinement and tech in smart-sized package
GMC revealed the 2015 Canyon today, an all-new midsize truck that redefines the §egmènt and raises the bar for everything from horsepower and efficiency to quietness and refinement.

When it goes on sale this year, the all-new Canyon will give GMC one of the only three-truck lineups in the . It is expected to deliver class-leading capabilities wîth the brand's signature refinement – all in an efficiently sized, maneuverable package for customers who want the cargo-hauling and trailering versatility of a truck without the size of a full-size pickup.

'The all-new 2015 Canyon completes GMC's three-truck family, which started wîth the redesigned 2014 Sierra 1500 and 2015 Sierra HD,' said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. 'It rounds out a lineup that offers the broadest range of capabilities in the , giving truck customers more choices to find the vehicle that meets their professional, personal and lifestyle needs.'

Based on a proven global architecture and engineered for the unique demands and driving conditions of North American drivers, the new Canyon is expected to deliver:
◾The §egmènt's best horsepower – an estimated 193 horsepower (146 kW) from a standard 2.5L I-4 and an estimated 302 horsepower (224 kW) from an available 3.6L V-6
◾The §egmènt's best payload of at least 1,450 pounds (657 kg)
◾The §egmènt's best maximum trailering rating (when properly equipped) of at least 6,700 pounds (3,039 kg)
◾Even greater capability wîth a powerful and efficient Duramax 2.8L turbodiesel engine coming in 2016 model year

'Not everyone needs full-size capability, but they still deserve strength and true-truck attributes that come in larger models. The Canyon will offer all the capability wîth confidence – and GMC's signature refinement that complements active lifestyles,' said DiSalle. 'It also delivers the technology customers want wîth more standard features.'

Canyon's customer-focused technologies include available OnStar 4G LTE connectivity wîth a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and expected §egmènt-first available driver alert features such as forward collision alert, lane departure warning and a standard rear-vision camera.

Additionally, RemoteLink Key Fob Services allow owners to lock and unlock their vehicle, flash the lights and honk the horn, and, on equipped models, even remotely start the engine using the RemoteLink smartphone app. The service is free for five years. Additional OnStar services and data plans will be available wîth a paid subscription.

GMC's ProGrade protection program for two years/24,000 miles – whichever comes first – of scheduled maintenance, is standard and covers four oil changes, tire rotations and 27-point inspections. It complements the three-year/36,000-mile – whichever comes first – bumper-to-bumper limited vehicle warranty and five-year/100,000-mile – whichever comes first – powertrain limited warranty.

Designed for capability, comfort and refinementInside and out, the 2015 Canyon is pure GMC, wîth a quiet, refined interior distinguished by premium materials and a commanding exterior presence that emulates the technology-infused design aesthetic introduced on the 2014 Sierra 1500 and 2015 Sierra HD models.

Bold front-end styling incorporates the §egmènt's only standard projector beam headlamps and GMC's signature C-shaped LED daytime running lamps on all models. Three body configurations are offered: An extended cab model wîth a six-foot bed, a crew cab wîth a five-foot bed and a crew cab wîth a six-foot bed. With the tailgate down, the six-foot bed allows eight-foot-long items to be hauled within the vehicle.

Canyon is offered in base, SLE and SLT models, in 2WD and 4WD models, and wîth an aggressively styled All-Terrain package offered on SLE models. It includes 17-inch painted aluminum wheels covered by all-terrain tires, a body-color grille surround wîth horizontal chrome bars and specific suspension tuning.

From a refinement standpoint, the Canyon features triple-sealed doors inlaid in the body sides, like the 2014 Sierra, for improved aerodynamic performance and a quieter interior. And to help keep overall mass down and improve the front-to-rear weight balance, the Canyon features an all-new aluminum hood.

It also features the §egmènt's only active aero grille shutters, which close at certain highway speeds to enhance efficiency through improved aerodynamics.

Additional exterior features include:
◾Segment-first CornerStep rear bumper design, pioneered on the 2014 Sierra, is standard
◾Available §egmènt-first EZ Lift-and-Lower locking tailgate that uses an internal torsion bar to make raising the tailgate easier wîth one hand, and a damper for more-controlled lowering
◾Standard two-tier loading that allows a platform to effectively split the bed into upper and lower sections, making it easier to haul, store and conceal items such as tools
◾Thirteen reconfigurable and four stationary tie-down locations throughout the bed for use wîth available, removable cargo tie-down rings
◾Standard bed rail and tailgate protectors
◾Available factory-installed spray-in bed liner
◾Range of 16-, 17- and 18-inch aluminum wheels

A diverse collection of work- and lifestyle-supporting accessories will be offered including everything from a bed liner and innovative cargo management system to a custom tonneau cover, removable cargo rings, tool box and more.

Comfortable and connected cabin


The interior of the 2015 Canyon is designed to be comfortable, heavily equipped and well connected. A bold, upright instrument panel wîth large instruments and a central driver information center is similar to Sierra. A center console-mounted shifter is similar to those found in midsize cars and crossovers.

The Canyon's cabin boasts exceptional attention to detail and premium appointments, including a sculpted headliner that enhances headroom, halo lighting on key controls for easier viewing and an open area at the front of the center console for easier phone charging.

Additional interior details include:
◾Sculpted door panels that make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle
◾Úpper-instrument panel storage bin – when not equipped wîth the uplevel audio system – and large glove box volume
◾Standard center console wîth room to store a tablet
◾Rear under-seat storage

Canyon's seats are designed for long-haul comfort and wear, too. They use dual-firmness foam for greater comfort on long drives and high-wear, stain-resistant cloth seating trim. A power-adjustable driver's seat is standard, and heated leather seats are standard on SLT. The All-Terrain package features exclusive color and trim details, including embossed seatbacks and unique contrast stitching.

Comfort is enhanced wîth technologies, connectivity and other features that support owners' daily and recreational lives including a standard 4.2-inch-diagonal color driver information screen in the instrument cluster

Also available:
◾Eight-inch-diagonal color touch screen and multiple ÚSB ports
◾OnStar 4G LTE wîth built-in Wi-Fi hot spot
◾Next-generation OnStar and IntelliLink enhancements wîth gesture recognition and natural language voice recognition
◾Siri Eyes Free Mode for iPhone users
◾Teen Driver feature
◾GMC AppShop
◾Navigation

Teen Driver is a new, configurable IntelliLink feature that allows parents to set a radio volume limit, establish a speed warning set between 40 and 70 mph, and set a speed limiter. It also automatically mutes the radio when the driver or front passenger safety belt is not fastened and a 'report card' that records mileage, wide-open throttle events, ABS events, maximum speed and other data. The custom features are locked by a PIN, which is set by the parent.

Canyon models wîth an eight-inch IntelliLink screen will also feature a new in-car app marketplace: GMC AppShop. It allows customers to download apps directly to their IntelliLink system and organize, update or delete them throughout the life of the vehicle. Available apps will connect drivers to music, news, weather, travel information, vehicle data and more.

Segment-best power and efficiency


GMC expects Canyon to be the most powerful and efficient truck in the §egmènt, allowing owners to haul and tow more while being efficient. A 2.5L I-4 is standard, and a 3.6L V-6 is available. They are based on award-winning engine families and tuned to deliver the low-rpm torque customers depend on for hauling and towing.

The 2.5L four is estimated at 193 horsepower (146 kW) and 184 lb-ft of torque (253 Nm), wîth approximately 90 percent of the peak torque available from 2,000 rpm to 6,200 rpm. The 3.6L engine is estimated at 302 horsepower (224 kW) and 270 lb-ft of torque (366 Nm). SAE certification of the power ratings is pending.

Both engines feature direct injection and variable valve timing to make the most of power and efficiency. An aluminum block, forged-steel crankshaft, dual-overhead camshafts and jet-spray piston cooling are featured on both engines. The 2.5L incorporates a two-stage variable-displacement oil pump, for greater efficiency, as well as a balance shaft located in the oil pan, for greater refinement.

All models are matched wîth a six-speed automatic transmission that complements the truck-tuned engines wîth features that make hauling and trailering easier and more comfortable, including auto grade braking and a tow/haul mode. A six-speed manual transmission is also available wîth the 2.5L engine in base extended cab/2WD models.

Class-leading capabilities and superior ride quality

The Canyon delivers the capability expected of a GMC truck, including expected §egmènt-leading payload and trailering. Like the full-size Sierra, Canyon is built on a fully boxed perimeter frame, which provides the strength to support its capabilities, and a ride expected to be smooth and quiet.

A coil-over-type front suspension features aluminum knuckles that are low in mass and high in strength contributing to a more responsive, immediate feel to driver inputs, as well as efficiency. The 2015 Canyon also features the §egmènt's first application of electric power §teering, which enhances efficiency because it is not driven by the engine.

Additionally, the Canyon has a tight turning radius of only about 41 feet (12.6 meters), making it easier to maneuver when parking or backing into tight spots, such as garages or campsites.

Four-wheel disc brakes, wîth four-piston front calipers, are standard and feature §egmènt-exclusive Duralife™ brake rotors – also pioneered on the 2014 Sierra. They can offer up to double the service life, which can help lower ownership costs.

Canyon is available wîth an automatic locking rear differential known by its G80 option code. Introduced by General Motors more than 40 years ago, it gives drivers a traction advantage when needed and everyday comfort when it's not. It is available on SLE and SLT, and standard wîth the All-Terrain package.

AutoTrac automatic four-wheel drive is also a §egmènt-first feature, which employs an electronically controlled transfer case that allows the driver to shift from 2WD to 4WD. The driver can select four modes, 2WD, Auto, 4WD HI, or 4WD Lo. By selecting 'Auto' mode, the transfer case will operate in 2WD and will automatically apply traction to the front wheels (4WD) when the vehicle senses wheel slippage.
