What’s New for the 2015 GMC Canyon
Returning for the 2015 model year, the GMC Canyon is a midsize pickup truck similar to that of the Chevrolet Colorado but better. It overlaps its sibling, the GMC Sierra, and features a six foot long bed and tops out with a 3.6-liter V6 under the hood.

The 2015 GMC Canyon’s design is all rugged. The front end, tailgate, and bumper are all similar to the other GMC trucks. The Canyon sets itself apart with a lower widow line that sweeps up towards the rear. Both modern and foreign at the same time, the Canyon has had success with this look in foreign markets for a few years now.

2015 GMC Canyon Performance
The 2015 GMC Canyon rocks two engines: 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 3.6-liter V6. The inline-four packs 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque into a small space and is offered with both a manual and automatic transmission. The four-cylinder is ideal for those moving tools, mulch, dirt and other yard necessities. The 3.6-liter V6 is rated at 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, perfect for towing and hauling a heavier payload.
2015 GMC Canyon Efficiency
There’s only a few miles difference between the four-cylinder and V6 engine options. The four cylinder hits 22 combined mpg, decent fuel economy for a midsize pickup truck. The V6 is a little lower at 20 combined mpg, which isn’t a bad tradeoff for the increased towing and payload.
