With its eyes set on the future—while learning from the past—GM set out to build a class-leading midsize pickup yet again. Starting from the ground up, the Canyon is a brand-new vehicle. It carries many of the features its older 1/2- and 3/4-ton brethren have been known for, such as a fully boxed frame, fuel-efficient engine, and extremely quiet and comfortable cabin space.
On paper, the Canyon isn’t much different than a previous-generation ½-ton, but driving it we noticed it has the maneuverability of a much smaller pickup. Power and responsiveness is great from both available engines. The V-6 has enough power to tackle any task or load you might throw at it, and the four-cylinder gets along just fine in normal, unloaded, city and highway driving.
Inside the cabin, we find the same style of instrument panel and center stack as the larger fullsize trucks. The Canyon comes loaded with tons of technology, including an available 8-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, OnStar, and lane departure warning, just to name a few. Interior appointments range from simple cloth seats in the base model to the rich leather you would expect to find in a Cadillac. Interior space is great and doesn’t feel cramped. That is, of course, unless you’re a fullsize adult attempting to sit in the back of the extended cab—then things get a bit tight.
Speaking of space, the Canyon is available with two cab and two bed options. There’s an extended cab and Crew Cab, along with 5-foot, 2-inch and 6-foot, 2-inch beds. Extended cab models are only available with the 6-foot, 2-inch box, while Crew Cab models get either. Each of the beds are equipped to accept GM’s new GearOn accessory system and feature two-tier loading, four permanent tie-down locations, 13 additional adjustable cargo tie-down locations, and utility rack stanchions. The EZ Lift and Lower tailgate is both lockable and removable, a factory spray-in bedliner is optional, and the CornerStep rear bumper makes getting into the cargo box a breeze.
Overall, we are extremely pleased with the new 2015 GMC Canyon. The Canyon beats every one of our expectations. This is the truck the midsize buyer has been waiting for.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado and 2015 GMC Canyon - Factory Fresh
They are two of the most anticipated new trucks of the year, and they are finally here. We recently had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the ’15 Chevrolet Colorado and ’15 GMC Canyon, and all we have to say is GM has hit it out of the park once again.
