Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon share exactly the same underpinnings, the same as Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra do in bigger, full-size truck category. Both Colorado and Canyon are actually reinvented a year ago and should require a large part in the market from Tacoma and Frontier. 2017 GMC Canyon will likely only offer additional powertrain option and several minor styling tweaks, the same as its Chevy counterpart.
2017 GMC Canyon Engine and Performance
Canyon currently rides because of base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or optional 3.6L V-6 mill. While former generates 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque, latter yields 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. By considering Colorado, you’ll realize that Canyon doesn’t only share its platform, nevertheless its mechanical characteristics at the same time. This will be carried over to a different 2.8L turbo diesel 4-cylinder engine also since oil burner is getting ready to make 200 hp and 360 lb-ft of torque within iterations. It comes as no real surprise then, that Canyon shares Colorado’s transmission choices too, that are 6-speed automatic and manual units from which to choose. Finally, both rear and all-wheel drive configurations will also be offered in general.
Depending on chosen trim level, GMC Canyon 2017 incorporates blacked-out or chromed frontal fascia. In both cases, mid-size truck’s nose is heavy, tall and angular. 16, 17 or 18-inch wheels adorn the tires, while cabin either can be of extended or crew variety. Apart from mentioned front fascia and corresponding decals, Canyon doesn’t differ very much from Colorado. You’ll be smart no matter which of the you choose.
GMC Canyon 2017 Interior Features
Even cabin layout is essentially copy-pasted. We don’t know which in the duo to announce the initial, and which copy, though, since both happen to be made simultaneously. Sleek dashboard gives a neatly shaped cp with standard 4.2-inch audio display or optional 8-inch touchscreen display screen display with navigation. Most available models offer cloth seats in many varieties, but top grades consist of leather-trimmed seats. Actually, tech list is, pretty much, entirely carried over from Colorado
That way, 2017 GMC Canyon offers 4G LTE Wi-Fi internet connection overall. In terms of safety, GMC’s version of GM compact pickup offers hill-descent control, trailer sway control, rearview camera, forward collision warning and lane departure warning. Pretty nice listing of advanced safety selections for a compact truck, especially in view that even full-size options usually do not deliver them all.
