GMC announcing that they are working on its new generation of 2019 GMC Canyon which is a half-ton truck. The new car will be displayed somewhere around 2018 but it has no exact date. The new design of the half-ton truck will be slightly improved from its previous model. Although it will not make drastic changes, the new model will still have number of important improvements.
2019 GMC Canyon Denali Engine and Transmission
According to some information that we collected, the new 2019 GMC Canyon will be added with a new turbo four unit that produce 272 Horse Power and 295 pound-feet of twist. Another choice of machine might be will be the same as the previous one. The engine will be using 2.5-liter four-cylinder which can create 200 HP and 191 lb-ft of torque.
Another type of machine, the 3.6-liter V6 seems to be the strongest with 308 Horse Power and 275 pound-feet. However, with the adding of the only diesel mill will definitely add more power and torque. Some rumors even said that the upgraded version of 2.9 liter engine will make 400 pound-feet of twist from 181 HP and 369 lb-ft of torque. If this rumor seems to be true, there will be no doubt that 2019 GMC Canyon diesel will become one of the bestselling options.
Transmission box with 6-speed manual will stays as the base option. However, we are not sure yet there will be massive changes in future with the addition of 10-speed gearbox. For the existing model the eight-speed will be the choice in most of the car.
2019 GMC Canyon Exterior and Interior Redesign
It seems like there won’t be much changes in the car platform, however the exterior will definitely have some adjustment. The biggest change might be the addition of the sunroof, although of course it is just an optional. The changes also include the redesign of the grille, bumper and the headlight. The rear end will have new taillights and maybe new tailgate. Even though GMC seems to also put concern in terms of interior design, we don’t expect too much of a change from the updated infotainment and slightly restyled dashboard.
2019 GMC Canyon Release Date and Price
There is no official release date from the company stating when they will start to sell it. However, we expect the 2019 GMC Canyon to be produced in mid July. The price of 2019 GMC Canyon won’t have much difference with its previous model which range from $22.095 to $44.595.
