GMC’S up­scale De­nali pack­age is com­ing to the Canyon mid-size truck. The 2017 Canyon De­nali made its pub­lic de­but Tues­day at the Los An­ge­les Auto Show. “Canyon is the seg­ment’s first and only pre­mium mid-size truck, offering un­par­al­leled ca­pa­bil­ity and ef­fi­ciency matched with ma­neu­ver­abil­ity and re­fine­ment,” said Mike Sper­anzini, brand di­rec­tor, GMC in Canada. “The all-new Canyon De­nali builds on that award-win­ning com­bi­na­tion with the dis­tinc­tive styling, lux­u­ri­ous in­te­rior and el­e­vated con­tent that has de­fined the De­nali name­plate since its in­tro­duc­tion nearly 17 years ago.”

Like other De­nali mod­els, the new Canyon De­nali of­fers a flashy chrome grille. Shiny wheels are also a De­nali trade­mark — in this case the Canyon will roll on 20-inch ul­tra-bright-ma­chined alu­minum wheels with painted ac­cents. Other ex­te­rior bling in­cludes chrome fog-lamp bezels, five-inch-di­am­e­ter rec­tan­gu­lar chrome as­sist steps and a pol­ished ex­haust tip.

The Canyon De­nali will be of­fered in six ex­te­rior colours. All interiors will be jet black with leather­trimmed seats — heated and ven­ti­lated up front. A unique in­stru­ment panel, con­sole trim, De­nali-logo sill plates and floor mats are also stan­dard gear.

Stan­dard tech­nol­ogy in­cludes for­ward-col­li­sion alert and lane-de­par­ture warn­ing. Ad­di­tional stan­dard good­ies in­clude a heated steer­ing wheel, GMC In­tel­liLink with nav­i­ga­tion, an eight-inch-di­ag­o­nal colour touch­screen and phone in­te­gra­tion, as well as con­nec­tiv­ity with a Wi-Fi hot spot.

The Canyon De­nali is avail­able on crew cab mod­els and four-wheel drive con­fig­u­ra­tion. Pow­er­trains in­clude a stan­dard 3.6L V-6 or the all-new 2.8L Du­ra­max turbo-diesel, be­ing touted as the clean­est diesel truck en­gine ever pro­duced by Gen­eral Mo­tors.

The GMC Canyon De­nali goes on sale in late 2016.
