While we were waiting for the new generation of the GMC compact truck, we were able to see an update in 2019 in the middle of the cycle. Currently, attention is focused on the new full-size pickup Sierra 1500. Until the sales number cooled off We’ve won I do not see any big news about his little brother or sister. The 2019 GMC Canyon will receive a new update to arouse the fans’ interest. This edition will also be good for paving the way for the new generation. While there are no major changes to the base model of the truck, there is a Denali edition that is always exciting. Not only are fans of GMC Canyon jealous, but also all lovers and truck lovers. Changes to the pickup could also cause a diesel unit to see how it works under the bonnet canyon.
2019 GMC Canyon is built on the GMT 31XX platform of GM’s GMT chassis with frame on the chassis. As before, there are three cabin and bed configurations: Crew Cab with a short bed of 5.2 meters or a long bed of 6.2 meters and Extended Cab with the long bed. The same equipment levels of SL, SLE, SLT, All Terrain and Denali are offered. All fairing components retain the same robust appearance with some minor modifications and additional new exterior paints that are borrowed from the Sierra Truck. The Denali model has a recognizable honeycomb grid and more chrome details.
The 2019 GMC Canyon interior is very spacious, especially in the Crew Cab models, which can accommodate five adults. The materials used indoors are even scaled with the SL base model, which is rare in the pick-up segment. The base model also offers a very respectable package of features, including a 7-inch touch screen with the GM IntelliLink infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, Android and Apple CarPlay. As this is actually a functioning truck, there is also a differential lock at the rear and the EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate are standard. Unlike the basic model, SLE and SLT are available in both the cab and the box configuration. The 7-inch touch screen is replaced by the 8-inch screen and the air conditioning is automated. SLT will also include leather covers and heated front seats. The safety devices such as ABS, ESP, lane departure warning and forward collision alarm are standard.
There are three drive trains for the 2019 GMC Canyon. Basic models offer a 2.5-liter V-6 unit under the hood. It is able to produce 200 hp for the current model. However, a new visit could stimulate another 10 or 15 horses. The same can happen with a torque of 190 lb-ft for a gasoline mill. The power is supplied as standard via a manual transmission, an automatic transmission is optional. With another petrol unit there is no possibility to select the transmission mode. It’s a 3.6-l LGZ V-6 engine with more output power. For truckers looking for better towing results, the 2019 GMC Canyon can deliver 310 horses and torque of 275 lb-ft with this drive. As I said, it comes exclusively with an automatic transmission. Compared to a 2.5-liter engine, it has 8 gears. Finally the Canyon Denali. This type of truck separates fans. The choice between power and torque makes diesel very popular or hated. For example, for the 2019 season, the truck has a 2.8-liter V-6 unit that produces less power than the base model. Diesel can only afford 180 hp. On the other hand, even the big V-6 unit cannot reach its 370 pound-foot torque. All-wheel drive is standard, as is the same 6-speed automatic transmission for brothers and sisters with 2.5-liter engine. However, all these figures do not mean too much if there are no tangible assets. Strength can provide pleasure and a dose of adrenaline. But the real thing is traction. The Denali model can pull 7,700 pounds and has better fuel economy than a larger V-6 gasoline unit.
Since GMC Canyon will be a carryover of the current model in 2019, its release could be expected in the second half of 2018. The price range remains as it is. This means that the base SL model costs about $ 20,500 and SLE $ 28,200. Both SLT and All Terrain cost $ 34,500, while the premium Canyon Denali costs nearly $ 40,000. The 2019 GMC Canyon is still the second generation of mid-size GMs. The third generation still needs to be developed and it will not be launched before 2020.
