Is the New GMC Canyon 2017’s Most Handsome Pickup Truck?


The short answer? Yes.


The long answer? The 2017 GMC Canyon has all the iconic flair of a traditional pickup with a peppering of modern finishes to satiate truck owners here in the twenty-first century. Available in five trims (Canyon, SLE, SLT, All Terrain, and Denali), GMC’s world-class pickup is a breath of fresh air. Here’s why it’s one of Simpson Buick GMC’s favorite new models.

Layers of Style

The new Denali trim is what we like to see. On the outside are chrome handles, fog lights, heated side mirrors, a spray-on bed liner, 20-inch Ultra-Brite aluminum wheels, a sliding rear window, chrome front grille, and the red-and-silver “GMC” emblem emblazoned on the front. It looks the part of a hard-working truck for hard-working people, both in long crew cab and extended cab forms.


In the cabin is where modernity strikes a pose. An 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with navigation is prominently displayed at the top of the central hub and offset by vertical vents. Below that are knobs, dials, and doodads that control the entire cabin. 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Standard single-zone automatic AC, front and rear USB ports, dual reading lights, chrome door releases, a Bose® premium sound system, SiriusXM, power front seats with lumbar control, heated seats, and leather stitching are obvious bits of refinement.

Other features found across Canyon trims include an exclusive CornerStep rear bumper, LED signature headlamps, AutoTrac transfer cases, EZ-Lift and Lower Tailgate, and customizable tie-downs.

A Full-Size Rig in Small-Size Packaging

The 2017 Canyon is the smallest pickup in GMC’s lineup, but it doesn’t lack punch. Available powertrains include the following:

  • 200-horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder
  • 308-horsepower V6
  • 181-horsepower 2.8L four-cylinder diesel


With the Duramax diesel engine, the Canyon can amazingly tow up to 7700 pounds thanks to an impressive 369 lb-ft torque. Road noise and ride quality are superb thanks to some advanced sound-blocking additions. And an EPA-estimated 28 mpg is on the high end in its class.
