  • Performance

    Can't Have a Powerful Truck Without a Powerful Engine

    The 2021 GMC Canyon is notable for its outstanding driving performance, which is surprisingly agile and quick despite this pickup truck’s rough and hardy exterior. The Canyon has multiple available engines, including an impressive V-6 and supreme diesel offering. The 3.6-liter V-6 engine outputs 308 horsepower, while the 2.8-liter turbodiesel edition is more notable for its outstanding torque rating of up to 369 lb-ft. Choose more horsepower for faster acceleration and a sportier on-road feel, or select the torque-heavy turbo diesel for ferocious engine-to-wheel power that can fight back against the roughest roads or heaviest trailer weight.

    A Smoother Drive

    Overall, the new Canyon is comfortable to drive thanks to its precise, accurate steering and responsive drivetrain. For even more control on the road, add the diesel exhaust brake to your Canyon, which reduces the amount of braking you need when you’re towing or carrying heavyweight in the truck bed. The available automatic locking rear differential, meanwhile, improves your Canyon’s traction on unstable surfaces, so you always feel like you’re in total control over your pickup.

    Take it Off-Road

    Upgrade to the AT4 edition, the off-roader trim, for even more amazing features designed for adventurous driving. One of the top benefits are the 31” Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires, high-end tires that have unbeatable traction and superior off-road suspension. Technology like advanced hill descent control maintains a stable drive, while panel protectors and skid plates enhance your truck for superior durability. Overall, those who want to adventure off the beaten path or tow weight through unpredictable ranch roads and construction sites need the rugged power of a 2021 GMC Canyon.

    This Truck Is Made for Towing

    The true power behind every pickup truck lies in its potential to pull hundreds or even thousands of pounds of weight. Test its limits as you hitch on an RV for family travel or load up the bed with work supplies. When it comes to the 2021 GMC Canyon, this pickup welcomes a challenge. When properly equipped, the new Canyon has a max towing capacity of up to 7,700 pounds.

    Add the trailering package to any 2021 Canyon, or get it standard in some of the upper trim packages like the popular Denali edition. Features include a 2” receiver hitch, 4-pin and 7-pin connectors, and all the equipment you need to set up lights and brakes for your trailers. You also get the aforementioned automatic locking rear differential for more power and stability when you put your new Canyon to the test.

    The Canyon is Functional and Comfortable

    For all its power and capability, the 2021 GMC Canyon also offers a surprisingly comfortable cabin. The front seats are extremely spacious on all fronts, so you’re never hurting for legroom, headroom, or even arm space if you like to drive in a wide stance. While the new Canyon has the amplest cargo bed in its class, it also has interior cabin space for stowing goods away from the elements. Look to its deep center console bin, door pockets, and other smart storage tools to keep everything from fragile supplies to your personal travel belongings within reach. There’s even a huge storage bin under the rear seat of the crew cab model for even more safe and private storage - a tool that may become a favorite of those who work on the go.

    The cabin is surprisingly quiet thanks to features like an inlaid door design, triple seals, and even a liquid-applied sound deadener that absorbs vibrations. Even when you’re working on the go and testing the Canyon’s towing strength, the cabin still feels like a comfortable break from the outside world. Travel with the whole family in the 5-seater crew cab, and take advantage of the rear-folding split bench that combines storage and a stable surface for rear-seat passengers, all of which help keep everyone comfortable on long drives.

    Infotainment Is a Given

    The upright instrument panel has a logical layout that arranges controls intuitively and within comfortable reach. Check out the 7 or 8-inch touchscreen infotainment device that sits directly in the center, which is your gateway to smartphone connectivity, user settings, other handy tools. There are several options for navigating the widescreen display’s interface, including touch controls, buttons, and knobs, so you can scroll through your music library and make other selections in the method that feels most comfortable to you. Upgrade to the SLE trim and above to get other standard features built right into the infotainment device, including a 4G LTE mobile hotspot.

    The Denali Is the Peak of Luxury

    Upgrade to the Denali edition, an enduringly popular trim for GMC’s lineup of pickup trucks, to get a luxurious and refined interior, unlike anything you might expect in the truck world. Open-pore wood trimmings, chrome accents, refined leather upholstery, and more interior color options. Meanwhile, you get advanced technology like a Bose premium audio system that sounds crisp and dynamic, as well as a smartphone wireless charging pad and enhanced safety technology. Heated and ventilated seats stay comfortable in all seasons, and premium materials are durable enough for hardworking folks.

  • Safety

    You may be shocked to learn that the 2021 GMC Canyon is also an excellent choice for safety-minded drivers. Look closely at its combination of safe engineering and active safety technology, and it’s easy to understand why the new Canyon earned a 4-star crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. With a mix of new and classic safety tech, you will feel confident whenever you drive down the road in the Canyon.

    The Canyon Is Here to Help You Drive

    There's plenty of available driver assistance technology in the 2021 GMC Canyon, including the Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. Both of these features combine to help prevent accidents and keep you safe while on the road. Meanwhile, rear parking sensors help address one of the few complaints drivers have had about driving pickup trucks: their size. Parking sensors help detect cars, bumpers, poles, and other obstacles to ensure you can navigate even the most crowded parking lots and driveways with ease. The available rear vision camera is a high-definition display of what’s right behind your vehicle. Just glimpse over to your infotainment device to get a clear image of nearby obstacles--even when you’re in motion.

    There’s even more safety to love in the new Canyon, including teen driver safety technology that helps encourage safe habits. Seat belt reminders, driving performance info for parents to review, and other features help keep new drivers as safe as possible, even when you aren’t in the truck with them. Meanwhile, the vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system goes beyond what other vehicles currently offer: audible alerts outside the vehicle to guide you when refilling the tires, automatic reprogramming when you perform tire services like rotations and new tire installation, and much more. These tire monitoring features are essential when you take advantage of the GMC Canyon’s off-road potential.
