GMC INTRODUCES 2017 CANYON DENALIExclusive design cues, content elevate 's first premium midsize truckDETROIT
– Denali is the ultimate expression of GMC's professional grade style, luxury and capability – and it is coming to the Canyon midsize truck.
The 2017 Canyon Denali is being introduced today, ahead of its public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It goes on sale in late 2016.
'Canyon is the §egmènt's first and only premium midsize truck, offering unparalleled capability and efficiency matched wîth maneuverability and refinement,' said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. 'The all-new Canyon Denali builds on that award-winning combination wîth the distinctive styling, luxurious interior and elevated content that has defined the Denali nameplate since its introduction nearly 17 years ago.'
Like all Denali models, the new Canyon Denali is distinguished wîth a unique chrome grille and unique wheels – 20-inch ultra-bright-machined aluminum wheels wîth painted accents. Exterior cues include chrome fog lamp bezels, five-inch-diameter rectangular chrome assist steps, a polished exhaust tip and a standard spray-in bed liner.
The Canyon Denali will be offered in six exterior colors.
Inside, a Jet Black interior features Mulan leather-appointed seats wîth perforated, heated-and-ventilated front seats – exclusive content in the Canyon lineup – along wîth unique instrument panel and console trim; and Denali-logo sill plates and floor mats.
Standard technologies include Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. Additional standard features include:
◾Heated §teering wheel
◾GMC IntelliLink wîth Navigation, an eight-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and phone integration wîth Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
◾OnStar 4G LTE connectivity wîth a Wi-Fi hotspot
◾Automatic climate control
◾Full-color driver information center
◾Remote vehicle starter system
◾Two ÚSB charging ports on the rear of the center console ad another ÚSB port inside the console.
The Canyon Denali is offered on crew cab models and in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive configurations. Powertrains include a standard 3.6L V-6 that tops competitors' V-6 offerings wîth up to 7,000 pounds (3,175 kg) of maximum trailering and an Environmental Protection Agency-estimated 26 mpg highway on 2WD models.
Also available is the all-new 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel, which includes a maximum trailering rating of up to 7,700 pounds (3,493 kg) and EPA-estimated fuel economy of 31 mpg highway (2WD). It is the cleanest diesel truck engine ever produced by General Motors and meets some of the toughest Ú.S. emissions standards, thanks in part to a cooled exhaust gas recirculation system.
The engine is paired wîth the Hydra-Matic 6L50 six-speed automatic transmission, which uses a unique Centrifugal Pendulum Vibration Absorber in the torque converter to reduce powertrain noise and vibration.
Diesel models also feature smart diesel exhaust braking and an integrated trailer brake controller. Smart diesel exhaust braking enhances vehicle control and reduces brake wear by varying the amount of brakes needed for the vehicle, load and grade. The integrated trailer brake controller system works wîth the anti-lock brake system to provide immediate and measured brake force wîth the electronically controlled trailer brake system.Critical acclaim
In 2015, Canyon won Cars.com Midsize Pickup Challenge for its §egmènt-leading capabilities and efficiency, including the latest in safety features, cargo-hauling and trailering versatility. Autoweek named Canyon as the 'Best of the Best Truck for 2015,' while WardsAuto recognized the Canyon as one of its 10 Best Interiors for 2015, based on criteria including design harmony, ergonomics, materials, driver information, safety and comfort.Source - GMC
Elevation of luxury

Features such as a 10-inch reconfigurable instrument cluster on the Yukon Denali series and Magnetic Ride Control on Sierra Denali are exclusive to their respective vehicle §egmènt.
The luxury-focused Denali models outsell the entire product lines of some of the most aspirational marques, including Land Rover, Jaguar and Porsche, wîth almost 60 percent of all GMC Yukon/Yukon XL models and more than 45 percent of Sierra HD sold wearing the Denali badge.
