• 2017 GMC Canyon Denali All Terrain X.


New Canyon Denali, All Terrain X models expand choices, while an updated V6 engine is paired with a new eight-speed transmissions to blend performance and efficiency.

GMC is building on an already expansive mid-size truck portfolio in 2017, as the GMC Canyon lineup now includes the new, range-topping Canyon Denali and new, off-road-inspired All Terrain X, giving customers more choice in configuring a small truck to their exact tastes.

Like all GMC Denali models, the new Canyon Denali is distinguished by chrome exterior details and unique wheels, along with exclusive interior trim and content. It also features a new 3.6L V6 engine that’s paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

This new propulsion system is offered across the 2017 Canyon lineup, including the new All Terrain X package, which takes the popular All Terrain model farther down the trail, with Goodyear® DuraTrac® all-terrain tires, all-weather floor liners and more.

“Canyon continues to carve out its own niche as the only premium truck in the midsize segment,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “With a broader 2017 Canyon lineup and the redesigned Acadia, GMC is offering more choices for finding the premium truck or SUV that matches customers’ design preferences and capability needs.”

  • New 7-in. diagonal colour touch-screen with GMC IntelliLink®1
  • Standard Teen Driver Technology
  • Available heated steering wheel
  • Exterior colours2: Dark Slate Metallic, Mineral Metallic and Red Quartz Metallic
