When you want a premium truck, you get a GMC, and when you want a premium mid-size truck, you get the 2017 Canyon Denali. GMC just introduced this truck, which is the first-ever premium truck in the mid-size segment.

“Canyon is the segment’s first and only premium midsize truck, offering unparalleled capability and efficiency matched with maneuverability and refinement,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, in a statement. “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.”

Just like its larger Denali counterparts, the Canyon Denali will feature a unique chrome grille and distinctive wheels. It will also come with chrome fog lamp bezels, five-inch-diameter rectangular chrome assist steps, a polished exhaust tip, and a standard spray-in bed liner.

The Canyon Denali will only be available as a crew cab model, but will come with either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. You can also choose between the standard 3.6-liter V6 or the all-new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel.

The 2017 GMC Canyon Denali will go on sale here at Paul Sur Buick GMC late next year.

2015 GMC Canyon handles everything you throw at it!

When General Motors first introduced the GMC Canyon, it expected for there to be a high demand—and it looks like the American carmaker was right. Since its introduction earlier this year, the GMC Canyon sales have quickly risen, making demand higher than ever—and causing a bit of a problem for GM. The American carmaker recently announced that it will be increasing its midsize pickup truck production at the Wentzville Assembly plant in Missouri, to keep up with the high demand.

General Motors is planning on adding as many as 1,000 more workers to the plant’s Saturday and Sunday shifts, helping create an additional 2,000 pickup trucks a month. This adjustment, along with reducing break time for employees, will make about 3,500 more vehicles a year.

So far, GM has delivered a combined 35,720 units of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon from January through April alone. To find out why so many consumers are choosing to purchase the GMC Canyon, stop in to Paul Sur Buick GMC today!

There are few pickup trucks in the industry that offer a luxury interior, even in their lower trims—unless you’re looking at the GMC Canyon midsize pickup. Through a combination of innovative technologies, a simple yet sophisticated design, and a multitude of soft-touch surfaces, the Canyon has earned itself a spot on Ward’s 10 Best Interiors list, showcasing its luxurious interior that is offered for a low price.

“It’s important that great interiors be available in every class of vehicle, not just luxury models that most consumers will never be able to afford,” said Drew Winter, Editor-in-Chief of WardsAuto World. “The Canyon demonstrates that shoppers need not buy a loaded full-size pickup to get lots of soft surfaces, a Bose audio system, supple and durable leather, an easily navigated touchscreen, and advanced safety features.”

The GMC Canyon beat out 42 other new vehicles’ interiors to earn a spot on Ward’s 10 Best Interiors list. This popular pickup truck combines top-notch technology with available OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hot spot, an eight-inch color touchscreen radio, and a multicolor driver information center display.

GMC Canyon Spy Shots Reveal Luxury Denali Trim

The GMC Canyon is rumored to get a Denali trim!

If there’s one thing you can count on GMC to always do, it’s adding a luxury Denali trim to each model in its lineup.

“But wait,” we hear you ask. “The Canyon pickup truck doesn’t have a Denali trim!”

You’re right—for now. Spy shots have revealed a Canyon testing in the wild with camouflage covering its front end. The camo wasn’t enough to completely hide the grille, however, which revealed the chrome mesh that all GMC fans will recognize as a mark of the Denali trim (by contrast, the standard model has horizontal slats).

The lower intake also appears to be completely lined in chrome, though the rest of the pickup looks the same as the current Canyon, which probably explains why GMC didn’t bother covering it up.

Given the pickup truck’s success, it makes sense that GMC would want to give it the Denali treatment. That means better quality materials, more technology, more convenience, and all the other usual luxury upgrades. Check out any of our Denali models at Paul Sur Buick GMC to see for yourself!
