2015 GMC Canyon Compact Truck Super Gallery (15 Photos)

2014 GMC Canyon

The American compact truck market has been largely dead for years, but all that changed with the recent introduction of the new, 2015 GMC Canyon (show here) and Chevy Colorado twins. The new trucks promised a roomier interior than the outgoing models, as well more modern chassis, improved pulling power, and- for the first time since 1983- an American compact pickup truck with diesel power.

The thing is, that diesel’s not just a marketing gimmick. The new 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorados are serious, big-boy trucks in person, and seem closer in size to the 1992-1996 Ford F-150s than, say, a Ranger.

The GMC Canyon debuted in extended-cab and crew cab iterations at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, and the good people at GM gave us a ton of great photos of the new 2015 GMC Canyon to share with you, below. Take a look at what the new GMC has to offer, ask yourself if you’d buy a GMC Syclone version, then let us know if the GMC is truck enough to take the money you’d saved up for that UK Ford Ranger comments section at the bottom of this page. Enjoy!

      Ditto.

      Agreed … but it’s better than the full-size Silverado alternative.

    I think this thing looks great. I really like the gmc but I assume the GMC will cost more. Anyone have a guess as to how much more the GMC will cost? Def interested in the diesel. I am hearing about 35 mpg any thoughts? I hope it has an exhaust treatment system like the VW that does not require maintenance like a Mercedes Benz. If so I could see the cost benefits of a diesel being diluted by having to maintain the exhaust treatment system.
