It was only a month ago when Car and Driver first broke news that GMC was planning to add a Denali trim to its popular Canyon mid-size pickup truck, but it wasn’t until today, November 17th, that GMC made the official announcement a Canyon Denali is coming in 2017.

A Jet Black interior with Mulan leather-appointed seats will highlight the cabin of the new Canyon Denali. Denali-logo floor mats and still plates will also be featured on the inside of the vehicle, along with an exclusive console trim and instrument panel.
