2015 GMC Canyon

What We Like

Far-superior interior compared to the old Canyon; much better engine performance; wide range of equipment; better ride than other midsize trucks

What We Don't

Ride is still pretty bumpy; front-seat comfort could be improved; pricing might not be enough to distinguish it from larger Sierra

Overview

What's New in the 2015 GMC Canyon?

The Canyon is completely new for the 2015 model year. 

Which Canyon is the Best?

Our dream Canyon is a well-equipped SLE model with the pickup's optional 3.6-liter V6 engine. That way, we could get a wide range of amenities without spending big money, and we'd still have the pickup's bulky 6-cylinder engine for muscle when necessary. Find a GMC Canyon for sale

 

How Much Does a 2015 GMC Canyon Cost?

The Canyon comes in four trim levels: the base-level Canyon SL, an unnamed midlevel Canyon trim, the SLE and the upscale SLT. Three body styles are offered: a long-bed extended cab, or a crew cab with either a long or short bed. Although GMC has not yet confirmed it, we expect to see a high-end Canyon Denali debut eventually, possibly for the 2016 model year.

The Canyon SL model ($21,900) is only offered in the truck's base-level, extended-cab configuration. Pitched as a bare-bones work truck, it includes a backup camera, a power driver's seat, LED daytime running lights, vinyl floor coverings, no rear seats, air conditioning and a USB port for music. It skips out on essentials such as cruise control and remote keyless entry.

If you want a few more features, enter the Canyon ($23,600), which adds rear seats and carpeted floor coverings to the mix. More importantly, it adds a wide range of desirable options such as remote keyless entry, cruise control, a spray-in bed liner, a 3.6-liter V6 and a few extra colors.

Next up is the Canyon SLE ($27,500), which adds a host of new items, including two rear USB charging ports, a multi-color driver information display, remote keyless entry, cruise control, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, an 8-inch color touchscreen, OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot capabilities, 17-in alloy wheels, power mirrors and additional aluminum trim, inside and out.

Topping the range is the Canyon SLT ($30,700), which adds automatic climate control, a remote starter, heated front seats, 18-in wheels and a power passenger seat.

Canyon options include the truck's 3.6-liter V6 engine, forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning, running boards, an innovative in-bed cargo-divider system, chrome wheels, a navigation system and a Bose sound system.

Competition

2015 GMC Canyon vs the competition

Chevrolet Colorado -- The Canyon's Chevrolet-badged stablemate is obviously worth considering, as the trucks are highly similar in a lot of ways. The Colorado may soon offer an exclusive diesel engine, which could sway shoppers toward the Chevrolet bow tie.

Toyota Tacoma -- The Tacoma is the Canyon's chief rival, offering notoriously durable construction and boasting a loyal following. We like the Tacoma, but we think that the new Canyon is a better truck.

Used Chevrolet Silverado -- If you need more capabilities than the Canyon can offer, consider a used Silverado. Though we especially like the all-new model, which came out last year, earlier versions are also worth a look.
