2017 GMC CANYON DENALI
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.
