GM has pulled the wraps off the 2017 GMC Canyon Denali, ahead of its public debut set for LA. The mid-size pick-up truck is offered in six exterior colors and comes with several upgrades.
It is based on the Canyon crew cab and features a “unique” chrome grille, chrome fog lights surrounds, rectangular chrome assist steps, standard spray-in bed liner, polished exhaust tips and a set of 20-inch ultra-bright-machined aluminum wheels.
The cabin is finished in “JET Black” with “Mulan” leather upholstery and has heated and ventilated front seats along with exclusive instrument panel and console trim.
The 2017 GMC Canyon Denali is offered with two- and four-wheel drive and a choice of two engines. The first is a 3.6-liter V6 petrol unit that offers up to 7,000 pounds (3,175 kg) of maximum towing capability and an EPA-estimated 26 mpg highway fuel consumption, and the second a new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel paired with a six-speed auto transmission, a maximum towing cabability of 7,700 pounds (3,493 kg) and a fuel economy of 31 mpg (both consumption figures in 2WD configuration).
Standard equipment includes the Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning safety systems as well as automatic climate control, remote starter, OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, IntelliLink with Navigation and 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two USB charging ports on the center console and another one inside the console plus a heated steering wheel.
The new Canyon Denali will go on sale at the end of 2016 at yet undisclosed prices.
