GMC has always been in the front line of providing consumers with powerful big trucks and for the 2016 GMC Canyon, things are not all that different. GMC trucks have been competing with Dodge, Chevrolet, and the all famous Ford trucks which are equally big. The 2016 canyon has not yet been unveiled but as usual, there are different sources with images of this all new GMC truck meant to hit the roads in late 2015 and be the main truck in 2016. Lovers of trucks can expect nothing short of high performance and a hint of attractive fuel efficiency.
2016 GMC Canyon Exterior
From the look of things, the prototype spotted in different tests in the wild indicates a softer truck that appears to be a combination of style and functionality. The bed is long enough, about 6 feet to accommodate a number of things and this is in addition to the fact that the truck is a double cab vehicle. The fenders are pronounced, something that has become a tradition in most large pickup trucks. There is a line from the front fender towards the rear wheel that breaks the monotony and completely changes the look of the Canyon. The front is striking especially with the huge lights to match the extensive grille with three prominent lines, the middle one being graced by the usual GMC logo.
Interior of GMC Canyon 2016
Since the GMC Canyon 2016 is still in the prototype stage, there is not much information available about the interior of the truck. But looking at the predecessor, we can only expect that the 2016 version will have an improvement in the buttons and switches in the cabin. The seats will be large enough and comfortable for long and rough terrain drives, because, it is likely that the vehicle is created for off-roading as highway drives. The steering wheel will get a modern touch with buttons to control the basics. With the averagely large size of the truck, the rear bench will be spacious enough for large occupants and comfortable for long drives. A signature display will take a center stage on the dashboard which will also be home to other functional buttons.
New GMC Canyon Engine
The Engine under the hood of the 2016 GMC canyon is what makes the headlines for this truck. In an effort to meet the fuel efficiency standards, the Canyon gets a diesel engine which combined existing technology with the new technology to get the all new 2.8-liter 4 cylinder Duramax diesel engine. The engine is expected to provide enough power to tow up to 7000 lbs with a fuel efficiency of 30 miles per gallon, something that has received a lot of criticism.
