2015 GMC Canyon Midsize Pickup Starts Under $22,000

  • 2015 GMC Canyon priced starting at $21,880
  • 6,700 lb towing capacity
  • On sale Fall of 2015

General Motors recently announced that its all-new 2015 GMC Canyon pickup will be priced starting at $21,880 including destination charge. The midsize pickup truck will reach U.S. dealers in the fall as a 2015 model. The automaker says that the Canyon is intended for buyers who want the working versatility of a truck without the size of a larger pickup.

Kenn Bakowski, marketing manager for full-size and midsize trucks at GMC, says this premium pickup will offer standard conveniences including LED lighting, a 4-way power driver’s seat and 16-inch aluminum wheels. The $21,880 price is for the short-wheelbase, 2-wheel-drive model with a standard cab. The extended-cab SLE model starts at $27,520, and the 4-wheel-drive Canyon SLT Crew Cab starts at $37,875. In comparison, GMC’s 2014 Sierra full-size pickup is priced starting at $27,170, including a $1,095 destination charge, while the crew-cab version of the Sierra starts at $36,390 for 2014 including destination.

The all-new 2015 GMC Canyon has a standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 200 horsepower and an optional 3.6-liter V6 that offers 305 hp. A 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine is expected to join the lineup in 2016. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard, but buyers can opt for a 6-speed manual transmission with the 4-cylinder engine on base extended-cab models with rear-wheel drive. GM says that the Canyon’s 1,450-lb payload and 6,700-lb trailer capacity will be leaders in the midsize-pickup segment.

The Canyon will be offered in base, SLE and SLT versions. There’s also an optional All-Terrain package on the SLE that will include a more aggressively tuned suspension, 17-in painted aluminum wheels with all-terrain tires, and a special body-color grille surround with horizontal chrome bars. Detailed pricing information will be available closer to the on-sale date, according to GM.

The midrange Canyon SLE model will feature aluminum interior trim, a tailgate that’s easy to lift and lower, GM’s IntelliLink touchscreen radio and an OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot with a free 3-month or 3-gigabyte trial period.

The upper-level SLT Crew Cab with 4-wheel drive adds leather-appointed seating, remote starting, 18-in polished aluminum wheels and a locking rear differential. Among other options choices will be a GearOn accessory system to organize bikes, kayaks and other large equipment, and a Bose premium 7-speaker audio system.

The Canyon and its Chevrolet sibling, the Colorado, are set to be reintroduced to U.S. buyers as 2015 models.
