And the GM had the U.S. This is how the GMC Canyon ended up having the same chassis as an Isuzu D-Max.
The GMC Canyon was the kind of truck that could be used as a daily driver and a weekend companion. It was developed as a premium midsize truck, with an impressive front fascia that evoked power and supremacy on the road. The Denali trim level even had a massive chrome grille and unique 20” wheels. The flared arches added some muscular lines to the vehicle.
The Crew Cab was the four-door version and a true 5-seater. Inside, the dashboard was closer to an SUV than to a utility truck. And the vehicle was good to serve well for both purposes. In the center console, a standard 8” touchscreen infotainment system was installed and was able to connect via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It featured OnStar 4G LTE connectivity and WiFi hot-spot.
Under the hood, the Canyon had two engine choices, depending on the market. The standard model featured a 3.6-liter V6 unit installed and a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel was offered as an option. Both were mated as standard with a 6-speed automatic. It was offered in a 2WD or 4WD configuration and it was able to tow up to 7,000 lbs (3,175 kg).
