A midsize pickup truck with full-size appeal

The 2022 GMC Canyon is a midsize truck that customers can configure to suit various applications, which helps it appeal to a vast range of potential owners. Unlike some vehicles that can be almost indistinguishable from siblings from the same group built on the same platform, it’s hard to link the Canyon with its GM cousin in any way other than its exterior proportions. If you want a truck for work, rest, or play in Yellowknife and the surrounding area and a full-size truck is too much for your needs, the Canyon is here and ready to go.

Trim levels and configurations

As well as midsize trucks like the 2022 GMC Canyon being smaller than their full-size alternatives, it’s also common for them to be available in far fewer configurations. That’s not the case with the Canyon, as there are many ways to configure one to get the truck that’s exactly right for you. GMC places a strong emphasis on four-wheel-drive versions of the Canyon, so they are available in more different versions than their rear-drive counterparts. Rear-drive versions of the Canyon are available in Elevation and Elevation Standard grades, and they are available in both Extended Cab and Crew Cab body styles. Those are the first two trim levels in the four-wheel-drive format, but also available are AT4, AT4 Leather, and Denali trim levels.

The Extended Cab with four-wheel drive is only available with the Elevation trim level. All other four-wheel-drive Canyon models are exclusively available as Crew Cabs, but you do have the choice of long (6-foot) and short (5-foot) boxes.

Powertrains and capability

2022 GMC Canyon powertrains and performance

The standard powerplant for the 2022 GMC Canyon is now a 3.6-litre gas V-6 because the four-cylinder that used to be the base engine is no longer available. The 3.6-litre V-6 provides the Canyon with 308 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque, and that substantial amount of power for a midsize truck gets sent to the rear or all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. However, if a lot of towing, especially towards the upper limit of midsize capability, is on your agenda, the optional engine for the Canyon might be the better choice.

That optional engine is a 2.8-litre, four-cylinder Duramax turbodiesel that develops 181 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque. The turbodiesel comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and the Canyon has a maximum towing capacity of 3,493kg (7,700 pounds) when correctly specified with that powerplant. If a diesel engine isn’t to your liking, you’ll be pleased to learn that the standard V-6 still allows the Canyon to tow up to 3,175kg (7,000 pounds).

Features and equipment

Elevation trim levels appeal to the budget-conscious and fleets, but most retail buyers will probably gravitate towards the off-road-focused AT4 or the incredibly stylish and lavishly-equipped Denali. The AT4 Cloth and AT4 Leather trim levels are separated by more than just the material covering the seats. As well as the leather seat upgrade, the AT4 Leather also features a four-way power front passenger seat, a 4.2-inch diagonal colour Driver Information Centre, HD Radio, an HD rear vision camera, a heated steering wheel, and rear park assist.

Denali is a byword for luxury, and the Canyon Denali doesn’t stray from that opulent blueprint. Standard Denali features include 20-inch alloy wheels, plenty of exterior chrome work, the Driver Alert Package, a seven-speaker Bose premium audio system, and an 8.0-inch diagonal GMC Infotainment System with Navigation and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. You can even go further by adding the stylish Denali Black Edition Package, which gets you 20-inch aluminum, low gloss Black wheels with a Black GMC logo; Black 5.0-inch rectangular assist steps; GMC Black chrome exhaust tip; and premium all-weather floor liners.
