Meet the New 2018 GMC Canyon in Kamloops, BC
2018 GMC Canyon Performance & Towing
The new 2018 GMC Canyon has upgraded its performance and capability. With three engines available, you can find an option that will give you the power you crave. When it comes to work, the new 3.6L V6 engine that pairs with an all-new 8-speed automatic transmission is no slouch around the construction site. With torque of 275 lb-ft and 308 horsepower, this engine rivals the V8s of only a few years ago, and when properly equipped, at up to 7,000 lbs it can out-tow a Tacoma. But for truck owners whose performance requirements can be classified as “light duty,” the 2018 Canyon offers its base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine to cut down on the waste and has a fuel-efficiency of 9.6L/100km highway. Those seeking maximum hauling potential will be interested in the 2.8L Duramax four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that pumps out 181 horsepower and a meaningful 369 lb-ft of torque with the amazing fuel-efficiency of 7.9L/100km.
2018 GMC Canyon Trims
The GMC Canyon is a truck that serves the very special requirements of the midsize truck segment. For that matter, it tinkers with the dials cab size and box length, offering various combinations that should be the most practical and requested. The 2018 GMC Canyon, for its part, will be re-introduced with five trim levels – the SL, Base Canyon, SLE, SLT and Denali- and a special off-road package for the SLE: the All-Terrain. Throw in a large front fascia, LED-trimmed headlights, and the three-bar grille design of the popular GMC Sierra, and you have a midsize truck that doesn’t lose the solid look of its heavy duty relations. When testing the new Canyon, be sure to play around with its step-integrated EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate, one of the most fluid and functional rear gates you’ll see on any truck. For those looking for features, technology and comfort, look no further than the 2018 Canyon Denali, the highest standard of luxury available on GMC trucks.
2018 GMC Canyon Safety
The new 2018 GMC Canyon certainly raises the bar for safety standards across midsize pickups. Including six standard airbags that not only protect passengers from the jolt of impacts, but also act as a safeguard against occupant ejection in the event of rollover or crash is the first step. The now standard rear view camera and oversized side mirrors that increase driver visibility and the ability to know what is going on around them. The standard StabiliTrak system, trailer sway control and hill-descent control, all combine to give GMC Canyon drivers peace of mind on the job or on the ride home. For buyers interested in safety extras or a higher trim level, the Canyon introduces available forward collision alert and lane departure warning systems as part of GMC’s state-of-the-art safety systems. Finally, for those in need of it, a Teen Driver system is standard. This mutes the radio when seatbelts are unfastened, and automatically provides a driver “report card” that monitors safe driving habits, speeds, accelerations, and more. The question is, will the teens outperform the adults?
