The 2017 GMC Canyon offers heavy lifting performance in a smaller, reliable frame. With five different trims (SL, Canyon, SLE, SLT and Denali), the 2017 Canyon has a trim for everyone. The Denaliís 3.6-liter V6 VVT engine provides heavy towing power alongside its trailering package, while the smaller frame allows for easier maneuverability without sacrificing performance.
At its base trim, the 2017 Canyon SLís 2.4-liter I4 DI DOHC engine earns it 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. If youíre interested in even more power, the four upper-level trims (Canyon, SLE, SLT and Denali) have an available 3.6-liter V6 VVT engine that earns 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. A 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine is also available on the upper three trims. Not to mention, the 2017 Canyon offers an impressive towing capacity of up to 7,700 pounds when properly equipped.
The 2017 Canyonís midsize frame and availability of a diesel engine give it a leg up when it comes to fuel economy. The standard 2.5-liter I4 DI DOHC engine earns an estimated 19/26 MPG City/Highway.* With the diesel engine, the midsize pickup can reach up to 30 mpg highway.* While towing capacity is important, many drivers donít want to sacrifice their fuel economy. Fortunately, the 2017 Canyon performs well in both categories.
Safety performance features
Especially when towing heavy loads, safety features need to be in place. The 2017 Canyon comes standard with Duralife four-wheel antilock disc brakes, a StabiliTrack stability control system and electronic tracking control to help you maintain command behind the wheel. However, thatís not all: GMC wants to keep your vehicle safe even at a standstill, so the 2017 Canyon comes standard with a theft-deterrent system to help ensure the security of your vehicle when youíre away.
With its more compact frame, the 2017 GMC Canyon offers easier maneuverability and control than other pickups in its class. With safety features to keep you safe and an impressive towing capacity that is a force to be reckoned with, this midsize pickup offers premium performance and safety wrapped up in a bow.
