The 2015 GMC Canyon has a standard four-cylinder engine or an optional V6 engine. The engine is strong for everyday driving and that V6 models have good power for towing and hauling. An automatic transmission is offered with either engine, and four-cylinder models are also available with a manual transmission. The larger engine V6-powered Canyon has an EPA fuel economy rating of 18/26 mpg city/highway, which is above average.  

The Canyon is perfect for work and load and even more perfect for all around the property of large lands. With it's EPA fuel-economy rating of 17 mpg city and 24 highway for a truck equipped with the V-6 and four-wheel drive, the Canyon—and the Colorado, for that matter—may not be the best in fuel efficiency, but it still easily beats the Tacoma, and a diesel model is scheduled to arrive next year. And like its Chevy sibling, a Canyon equipped with the 3.6-liter V-6 and the $250 trailering package can tow 7000 pounds—at that cost, we wouldn’t leave home, er, the dealership, without it.

Both 2WD and 4WD variants are available, in either extended cab or crew cab styles, with a choice of a 6’2” bed, or, for crew cab models, a shorter 5’2” bed. Also, three trim lines will be offered: base, SLE, and SLT. An All-Terrain package will also be offered, available on SLE models, adding 17-inch painted aluminum wheels, all-terrain tires, and a body-color grille surround, as well as off-road tuned suspension.

The 2015 GMC Canyon has a large cabin design and upscale materials. The front seats are very supportive and remark that the cabin is whisper quiet at high speed. Those serious about off-roading will want to remember that GMC calls its version of the off-road package the “All-Terrain Package” (Chevy’s is Z71). It brings an automatic-locking rear differential and tow hooks (both standard with four-wheel drive), hill-ascent and -descent control, a transfer-case shield, 17-inch 255/65 all-terrain tires, a body-color rear bumper, and some minor interior tweaks designed to keep things comfortable inside while roughing on the outside.

The extended cab's rear seats aren't comfortable for adults. The crew cab has sufficient back-seat space for adults. The Canyon comes standard with a rearview camera and a USB connection which is highly usable in today's dern world. Optional features of the Canyon include GMC's IntelliLink infotainment system, navigation, Bluetooth, a seven-speaker Bose audio system, lane departure warning and forward collision alert. The IntelliLink is intuitive and the system’s controls are easy to reach, making this pick up truck perfect for today's world.

So in conclusion the Canyon is best all around for you if you don't need an industrial sized pick up but you do need power for your every day country or even urban work loads.
