The biggest surprise in the car industry was announced several days ago. GMC Canyon, which production was continued few years ago, is going to receive Denali trim level. GMC decided to take the best from both worlds and tried to create a perfect pickup truck. We bet no one expected that GMC would do such a thing. Even the Canyon and Sierra fans were stunned when the company announced they would release new truck which is basically combination of Denali trim level and Canyon. It will be named 2017 GMC Canyon Denali.
The GMC Canyon Denali 2017 won’t be perfect (perfection doesn’t exist in the car world) but it will be one of the trucks with the best performances. Our team managed to get some photos of this truck so you see how it is going to look like. We guess you have so many questions and we will try to answer most of them in the following paragraphs. If you have any additional questions you may leave a comment below and we will answer it as soon as possible. This is the very first Canyon Denali and we hope it won’t be the last one.
2017 GMC Canyon Denali Specs
The 2017 GMC Canyon Denali is currently one of the most anticipated trucks in the world. Even though it has been announced recently, the company provided us with lots of details and we will start with the engine first. Canyon uses the 2.5l four-cylinder but it seems we are not going to see this unit under the hood this time. The base engine will be the 3.6l six-cylinder but there are some gossips about the second unit. The second unit should be the 2.8l Duramax turbo. This engine will be highly suitable for the 2017 GMC Canyon Denali but GMC hasn’t commented on these allegations yet.
Power figures of these two engines are still unknown. It is still too early to talk about horsepower, torque and towing capacity but we are sure GMC won’t let us down. Experts speculate about the 6-speed automatic gearbox and it is most likely there won’t be manual transmission available. Most of the current trucks come with both two-wheel and four-wheel drive hence in our opinion GMC won’t differ in this aspect. There is still a lack of information about the fuel economy and that is the most anticipated detail about the pickup.
Interior and Exterior
Generally, design is going to be the combination of Sierra Denali and Canyon. There is a big GMC sign over the grille and it will use LED and HID technology. Chrome accents are all over the exterior: on door handles, front and rear bumpers, exhaust tip, mirror caps, etc. It is definitely attractive but many will not find sharp edges appealing.
Interior will be quite luxurious. Seats are wrapped in famous high-quality Mulan leather. They are equipped with heating and ventilation system. Leather is quite durable since it uses French sewing. You don’t need to worry about technology because it uses the latest updates. Console is placed at the center of the dashboard and you can use it to control pretty much all features in the car. You will simply like it!
2017 GMC Canyon Denaly Release Date and Price
Although, price hasn’t been announced yet many expectations have been made by several experts. They expect new 2017 GMC Canyon Denali will cost between $34,000 and $40,000 but don’t be surprised if price is slightly higher. According to one source it is going to cost exactly $41,900 but we don’t have any other source that will confirm this statement. We hope GMC will publish this information until the launching which can happen either in the last quarter of 2016 or at the beginning of 2017.
