2019 GMC Truck Preview: Canyon

November 1st, 2018 by

2019 GMC Canyon Pickup TruckAlready one of the most rewarding pickups on the market, the midsize GMC Canyon gets even better for 2019. Not only does the new model come standard with an updated infotainment system, there are also four new paint colors to choose from. Let’s check out some of the best highlights.

The new Canyon gives you three great engines to choose from. While the base four-cylinder’s efficiency makes it a great choice for everyday commuting, the optional V6 cranks out a muscular 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Along with the extra power comes a beefed-up, eight-speed automatic transmission. You can also take advantage of the versatile turbocharged diesel engine. Aside from raising the Canyon’s towing capacity to a formidable 7,700 pounds, it also delivers class-leading fuel economy. Four-wheel drive is optional throughout the lineup.

On the road, the new 2019 Canyon proves to be a smooth performer. You’ll enjoy its confidence-inspiring handling and impressive ride quality. If you plan to travel off the beaten path, take advantage of the available All-Terrain X package. It outfits the pickup with a few extra perks, including a tougher set of Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires and off-road suspension. Drivers will be able to experience the best of both worlds.

Adventurous styling further sets apart the new Canyon from the competition. Hulking fenders and a muscular hood help give the Canyon a powerful look. While the base model looks attractive, the higher trim levels demand even more attention on the road. Some people may like the All-Terrain model’s rugged appearance, while others will be drawn to the chrome-clad Denali model.

The new paint colors include:

  • Dark Sky Metallic
  • Smokey Quartz Metallic
  • Blue Emerald Metallic
  • Sedona Metallic

The new 2019 Canyon is a great pickup truck for the daily grind. Its comfortable interior will keep you relaxed throughout the day. If you need to haul around your family and friends, the crew cab’s extra space will come in handy. Heated/ventilated seats are featured on the range-topping Denali model.

You’ll also have access to a number of high-tech features. A 7.0-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard. You can step up to a more advanced infotainment system, which provides real-time traffic updates. Meanwhile, the truck’s 4G Wi-Fi hot spot keeps you connected to the web at all times. A powerful Bose sound system and wireless charging are available as well.

Expect the 2019 Canyon to offer even more protection on the road than before. A powerful anti-lock braking system and six air bags help you to feel secure. Aside from the base Canyon, all of the other trims benefit from a new digital Rear Vision camera. It makes squeezing in and out of tight spots especially easy. For the drivers who desire extra peace of mind, GMC offers a Driver Alert package. While forward collision warning prepares you to take action during panic situations, lane departure warning helps keep you from wandering over into the next lane.
