GMC has officially pulled the wraps off the 2015 Canyon, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit, which will open its gates tomorrow.

Being inspired by the GMC Sierra, the 2015 GMC Canyon has received a simple front fascia, with C-shaped LED daytime running lights, with projector beam headlights and a prominent grille. The rear end of the vehicle has distinctive taillights and the All-Terrain package can be ordered which will add a retuned suspension system, a different grille and 17-inch aluminum rims, wrapped in all-terrain tires.

The cabin of the 2015 GMC Canyon is getting goodies like the 4.2-inch driver information display, heated leather seats, Wi-Fi hotspot, infotainment system, lane departure warning system, forward collision alert and much more. A variety of body styles will be offered for the new Canyon, like the crew cab with a 5-foot bed, the extended cab with 6-foot bed or the crew cab with a 6-foot bed.

The 3,039 kg (6,700 lbs) weighing truck will be offered with a 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine under its hood. The unit is good for 193 HP (146 kW) and 254 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. There is also a 3.6 liter V6, which is developing 302 HP (224 kW) and 366 Nm (270 lb-ft) of torque. Next year the Canyon will receive a 2.8 liter Duramax turbo diesel engine too. The vehicle will go into production this fall. Prices remain unknown for the moment.
