2019 GMC Canyon 2-Wheel Drive Review and Price

I’ve always wanted to have a pickup truck that I can be proud of. And it looks like I found it!

The GMC Canyon is a car with the combination of unique design and a high level of comfort inherent in the brand.

The brand calls its creation the only mid-size premium pickup. The status is taken from nothing, however, the Canyon looks attractive. At the front, a large grille stands out, which is very similar to what the larger GMC Sierra offers. Led daytime running lights and headlights add class, and the extended fenders make the image more massive. Each edge of the rear bumper is equipped with a footrest, which GMC calls “CornerStep”, which makes it easier to access the body. The Denali model has received chrome door handles and mirrors.

In the Canyon, the driver sits high and not just because it’s a pickup truck. This position is the key to good visibility in all directions, in addition, the seats themselves differ in reliability of support and width. Despite the fact that the Canyon is classified as a pickup truck, it drives like a modern SUV with direct control, good brakes and suspension that can guarantee smooth running on paved surfaces and control of movements on off-road.

Along with available driver assistance systems such as collision warnings and lane departure warnings, the GMC Canyon 2019 received a kind of electronic mentor “Teen Driver”. The system allows parents to control their driving style remotely and set speed and volume limits.

An HD rear-view camera is added to the GMC Canyon package.

The GMC interior is a successful combination of modern style with traditional pickup practicality. The wide seats will fit any body type, and most functions are located in the center console with large buttons that can be pressed even with gloves on. The bonus will be a sufficient amount of storage space for small things. The Crew Cab configuration freely accommodates four adults and five if necessary. The covering can be vinyl, fabric or leather. An 8.0-inch touch screen infotainment system is available as an option. The system, by the way, pleases with ease of use, available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and offers Wi-Fi. I’m excited about the Canyon information and entertainment system, it has become more user-friendly with cloud technologies.

The Denali model is distinguished by the presence of automatic climate control, remote start, heated front seats, with ventilation for Denali, and 18-inch wheels.

Under the hood there is the 3.6-liter V6 engine that guarantees 308 horsepower and 373 Nm. The pair received an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive fuel consumption is 13.0 l/ 100km in the city, 9.0 l/100km outside and 11.0 l/ 100km on average.

    It is a little hard getting in and out or it.
