The GMC Canyon first came on the scene in 2004 as the replacement for the GMC Sonoma pickup that dates back to 1982. While both the Sonoma and Canyon were corporate twins to the Chevrolet S-10 and Colorado, the GMC had it own styling. The Canyon proved to be a great improvement over the Sonoma, offing stronger engine choices and better fuel economy. Canyons were available in single, extended, and crew cab forms, with bed lengths to suit each cab. Now for 2015, the GMC Canyon is back in production, having been on hiatus since 2012. The 2015 model is completely new, with an overhauled exterior and interior, new engine options, and a far superior overall design. Like the years prior, GMC’s latest Canyon shares most of its underpinnings with its Chevrolet counterpart.

The Canyon comes with two initial engine options for 2015: a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder and a 3.6-liter V-6. Both are gasoline mills. However, for 2016, a 2.8-liter, I-4, Duramax, turbo-diesel engine will be offered. Automatic and manual transmission are available, both sporting six gears. The truck rides on a fully boxed, hydroformed steel frame.

Updated 09/22/2014: General Motors has announced the EPA fuel economy estimates for the Canyon. At its best, the midsize truck achieves 22 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. GM also released payload ratings, listing the V-6 Canyon at 1,620 pounds. Both stats are class-leading.
