2016 GMC Canyon Review

A small truck with no small amount of ability. The 2016 GMC Canyon. Rated at 305 horsepower Canyon’s 3.6L V6 engine is the most powerful in its segment. Available with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission and a host of other performance features you’ll find no shortage of capability here.

The Canyon provides exceptional storage intelligently placed controls and driver-centric features including: Intellilink with available 8-inch touch screen and a rear vision camera. Offering state-of-the-art safety and Driver Alert technologies and the full range of other GMC standard and available safety features the Canyon provides peace of mind for the unexpected. The 2016 GMC Canyon. The only premium midsize pickup.
Canyon’s interior is precisely crafted and exceptionally quiet. And it’s easy to get in your comfort zone with available features like heated leather seats. Available OnStar with 4G LTE and wireless hotspot turns your truck into your mobile office. And the available Apply Car Play allows you to easily link your smart phone to the stunning 8-inch touchscreen. And let the available 4 USB ports and 2 12-volt power outlets keep you powered up.
