When you purchase a truck, you expect it to perform flawlessly on every job but how do you know which one to pick? PickupTruck.com did the work for you and tested 18 mid-size trucks for performance on gas mileage (loaded and unloaded), towing capabilities, horsepower, curb weight, and even price tag to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. GMC is proud to say that for the second year in a row, the GMC Canyon SLE came out on top as the Best Mid-Size Pickup for the year.
“Establishing a benchmark for a premium midsize pickup was our goal with the Canyon, and PickupTruck.com’s insights affirm our instincts,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “The Canyon’s quiet cabin, premium design and materials make it a maneuverable solution for customers who want the capability of a pickup with the modern amenities customers expect from GMC.”
Unassuming yet undoubtedly refined, the GMC Canyon is a well-balanced ride for both paved streets and off-roading. Base model boasts a 2.5-liter four mated with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission for 191 pound-feet of torque and 181 horsepower that’s perfect for taking care of business. The optional 2.8-liter turbodiesel with 369 pound-feet or the 3.6-liter V-6 with an eight-speed automatic and 275 pound-feet are ideal for heftier jobs.
Inside the cabin, there are plenty of top-shelf amenities like an optional Bose audio upgrade, an 8.0-inch color touchscreen with navigation and Apple CarPlay ability, and interior paint options to customize your comfort. There’s more to look forward to with the 2017 GMC Canyon too, stay tuned or contact one of our team members for more information.
