The 2015 GMC Canyon is expected to be unveiled on January 12th at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, and GMC has just released the first teaser image of the upcoming midsize pickup. As expected, the image reveals nearly nothing, but we do expect the new Canyon to be highly influenced by the 2015 Colorado we saw at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show .
Earlier this year, GM president Mark Reuss said "GMC will be more about conquest. The Chevy will be about value," which leads us to believe that there will be some significant differences between the Colorado and Canyon, unlike the nearly identical duo we saw in the last generation.
When it comes to the Canyon’s design language, it should borrow some design cues from the 2014 GMC Sierra . Under its hood, it will offer the same engines we saw in the Colorado, including a 2.5-liter in-line four and a 3.6-liter V-6. A 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine could also arrive in 2016.
