2019 GMC Canyon Concept

Sponsored Links

The GMC Canyon shares too much with its down-market twin, the Chevrolet Colorado, to be deemed upscale. Extended and crew cabs and five- and six-foot beds offer decent passenger and cargo room. A 2.5-liter four pairs with a six-speed manual or automatic for 191 lb-ft of torque. The optional 2.8-liter turbo-diesel (369 lb-ft) and 3.6-liter V-6 with an eight-speed automatic (275 lb-ft) are ideal for heavy lifting. If you want a premium mid-size truck, go for the pricey but deluxe Denali trim.

Since their reintroduction in 2014, the GMC Canyon and the Chevrolet Colorado have reinvigorated a market for mid-size pickups that many industry observers had concluded was dead. U.S. truck buyers, they said, had little interest in pickups in anything less than size XL—or larger.

2019 GMC Canyon Specs and Review

Some might say that, at 212.4 inches in length and riding on a wheelbase more than 10 feet long, the short-box crew-cab Canyon is pretty big in its own right. (And that’s not the long-bed model, which is a foot longer still.) But despite its length, from behind the wheel this GMC feels much more wieldy than a full-size truck. Peering through the windshield, one looks out over much less hood, and the truck also is considerably narrower than a GMC Sierra, which makes placing it in traffic easier. Nicely weighted steering helps, too.

The optional 3.6-liter V-6 that powered our test truck is the most powerful engine in the Canyon lineup and sits above a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four and a turbo-diesel 2.8-liter four. The V-6 is new for 2017, which may not be immediately apparent since this one displaces the same 3.6 liters as its predecessor. Output is barely changed, inching up by 3 horsepower to 308 and 6 lb-ft of torque to 275. More significantly, the automatic transmission it’s attached to gains two forward gears for a total of eight.

With its new powertrain, our four-wheel-drive Canyon hustled to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds, 1.2 seconds quicker than a similar 2015 model with the old V-6 and six-speed auto. The new combo similarly chopped the quarter-mile time by 1.1 seconds, to 14.9, while the trap speed rose from 87 to 94 mph. That performance edges out the Honda Ridgeline, although the GMC’s corporate cousin, the Chevy Colorado, has been quicker still in our testing, at 6.1 seconds to 60 mph and 14.8 through the quarter. The hoarse moan of the 3.6-liter V-6 is uninspiring, but the new eight-speed automatic is adept at serving up the ideal ratio.
