Good Things Come in Small Packages

The growing popularity of smaller vehicles applies to pickups as well, and customers say maneuverability is a top reason for choosing a midsize pickup. The 2015 GMC Canyon delivers the right size vehicle for consumers who are looking for a more agile pickup.

“Not all customers require the full-size capabilities offered by larger models, but they value the strength and true-truck confidence delivered by the Canyon,” said Mike Speranzini, brand director of Buick and GMC in Canada. “These customers appreciate the unique combination of real-world maneuverability and convenience coupled with truck functionality.”

The 2015 GMC Canyon is the smaller sibling of the 1500 Sierra full-size pickup, and the 2500 and 3500 Sierra Heavy Duty pickups. The GMC Canyon short-bed crew cab is 540 cm making it an easier fit in many parking spots and garages, yet the smaller size does not sacrifice functionality or capability.

“We engineered the 2015 GMC Canyon to be very capable and functional for mid-size pick up owners,” said Anita Burke, vehicle chief engineer for Canyon. “We know customers have varied needs for a pickup in this segment, using their vehicle to commute to work during the week, transport children to school and other activities. But on the weekend, they have a very different set of needs that match their active lifestyles. The 2015 Canyon delivers on all these needs.”

The 2015 Canyon has a tight turning radius of approximately 12.6 m, making it easier to maneuver when parking or backing into tight spots. And features like electric power steering provide easier maneuverability in tight situations.
