The 2019 GMC Canyon got popular among the commercial vehicle lineup as a solid mid-size truck that offers a wide range of powertrain options that never let you down on any job, has a refined and tasteful interior, and overall moves with a classy demeanor.
As a mid-size pickup truck, the 2019 GMC Canyon hints at an upscale flair, for which it has stolen a large section of buyers who initially had other models in their mind for their business logistics. That is where GMC has made Canyon a compelling choice that offers several trim levels to satisfy the diverse requirements of any business. At the Delran GMC dealer we explored the 2019 year lineup of the GMC Canyon that finalize on the trims named SL, Canyon, SLE, All Terrain, SLT, and Denali. They start with a utilitarian approach scaling up to a near-luxury level.
What Has changed for 2019
For the year 2019, GMC has refreshed the Canyon styling with some nominal changes that includes a cloud-connected navigation and automatic software updates for the infotainment section. A handful of features got added to assist the driver for better safety and convenience, like a 6-way power-adjustable driver seat, parking sensors. On the exterior front you get to see a new design for the 17-inch SLE wheel along with four new paint colors added to the existing palette, namely, the Dark Sky Metallic, Smokey Quartz Metallic, Blue Emerald Metallic, and Sedona Metallic.
Capability and Utility Options
The 2019 GMC Canyon offers you many sizes to choose from. The list includes an extended- or crew-cab bodies that come with either a short 5-foot-2 bed or a long 6-foot-2 bed. Among them, the long bed stays as the only option applied on the extended cab version.
The powertrain options include a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine, a 3.6-liter V-6 engine, or a turbodiesel 2.8-liter inline-4. While a 6-speed manual transmission is offered as a standard configuration on some inline-4 models, a 6-speed automatic transmission is also offered as an option for the gas and diesel 4-cylinder models. On the other hand, the V-6 models can be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. All the 2019 GMC Canyon models come either as rear- or four-wheel drive which is a common phenomenon on the recent pickup models.
The entry-level engine of the 2019 GMC Canyon moves on a 2.5-liter inline-4 cylinder engine that is enough to make a 200 of horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. If you go for the uprated engine of 3.6-liter V-6 the horsepower and torque scale up to 308 hp and 275 pound-feet, that bridges the gap between a superior power drive and a decent fuel economy. With the mighty diesel engine the 2019 GMC Canyon can score a 30 mpg rating from the EPA on the highway and can tow up to 7,700 pounds that meets the usual requirements for any pickup buyers.
