The Strapping 2017 GMC Canyon Denali

By Emily Eppley | March 21st, 2017

The GMC Canyon is a muscular, good looking truck at any trim level but when you elevate it to the Denali package, it’s clear that this is the only premium mid-size truck for you. From the unique chrome Denali grille to the heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, the 2017 Canyon Denali is full of memorable details that set this mid-size truck apart in the pack. Here’s what our team loves about the Denali Canyon.

GMC added a little extra love to this powertrain when they redesigned it as a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It earns up to 308 horsepower and a max trailering rating of a hefty 7,000 lbs. But if you’d rather have diesel you could opt for the legendary Duramax V-8 2.8-liter Turbo Diesel that delivers an ample 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque with a max trailering rating of a substantial 7,700 lbs. Never worry about your truck’s performance again.

But GMC didn’t focus their efforts solely on the power under the hood; the Canyon Denali is a well-crafted truck with a brawny stance and an upscale feel. The exterior is flecked with impressive chrome accents and nameplates, 20-inch Ultra Bright machined aluminum rims, LED under-rail bed lighting and more. You can even opt for a top-of-the-line spray-on bed liner to keep your truck in great condition. Inside, you’ll find built-in 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot with connectivity up to 7 devices, an 8-inch color touchscreen with navigation and seamless integration with your Apple or Android phone. But it’s not all about technology, the heated and ventilated seats, exceptionally quiet cabin, and high-quality materials everywhere you look creates an atmosphere of professionalism and sophistication – no matter where the job takes you.

And you can drive with confidence thanks to the state-of-the-art safety features on the 2017 GMC Canyon Denali; engineered to give you peace of mind on the road. With active driver alert technologies like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, you’ll feel like you have an extra set of eyes helping you watch the road. And help your new, teen driver learn safe habits with the Teen Driver safety system where you set limits on certain controls and provides a driving “report card.” But if anything does happen on the road, OnStar provides turn-by-turn navigation, Remote Door Unlock, and Emergency Roadside Assistance.
