There are many benefits to owning a pickup truck: four-wheel drive for all weather traction, a high seating position with better sightlines, the ability to tow heavy trailers, and being able to transport materials without damaging your trunk. But with trucks growing larger with every generation, and hauling numbers approaching heavy-duty territory, you may have realized that you don’t need to buy a full-size truck to get full-size capability. Enter the new 2018 GMC Canyon. It’s 15 inches shorter and 6 inches narrower than a comparable GMC Sierra, making it much easier to navigate through shopping mall parking lots and tucking into your garage. Do you give up much in the towing department? Not much. The mid-size Canyon can tow a maximum 7,000 pounds while the 5.3L V8 Sierra can do 9,200. Unless you’re towing large horse trailers and 5th wheels, the 2018 GMC Canyon might be all the truck you need.

Which engine should you select for your 2018 GMC Canyon? That depends on how much you value fuel efficiency, acceleration, and towing strength. For the most inexpensive sticker price and best gas mileage in a light-duty work truck, we recommend you get a Canyon fitted with the 2.5L DOHC inline-four. It produces 200 horsepower, 191 lb-ft of torque, and up to 8.8L/100km on the highway. But if you want the power to go from 0-100km/h on 7.5 seconds and haul heavier loads, opt for the 3.6L direct injection V6 with over 300 horsepower as amazing gas mileage on the highway testing cycle.
2018 GMC Canyon Interior Features
Does your current truck sound like you’re driving through a tropical storm when cruising at highway speeds? Have a seat in the new 2018 GMC Canyon and you’ll notice right away its bank vault-like solidity. That’s because the Canyon was engineered with inlaid doors, shear-style body mounts, liquid applied sound deadener, and a thick windshield and side glass to ensure you have a serene, quiet ride. And like a bank, the GMC Canyon has plenty of options for storing all your valuable work and recreational gear, including a standard 7-inch touchscreen, deep centre console with up to 4 USB ports, and a 12V outlet nearby to charge all your electronic devices.
2018 GMC Canyon Safety Technology
Do you ever find yourself tasked with hooking up a trailer with no one to spot you when you back up? Not a problem. Every 2018 GMC Canyon comes standard with the Rear Vision Camera with trailering assist guidelines that engages as soon as you set the transmission in Reverse. It also features dynamic grid lines that show your travel path and warns you of any approaching obstacles. We guarantee that once you’ve had this incredibly convenient safety feature, you won’t want to drive another truck without it. And once you’re on the road, standard Trailer Sway Control makes sure that your cargo stays secure using advanced computer sensors that monitor your speed and other driver inputs.
