2018 GMC Canyon is a mid-size pickup truck that looks almost same as Chevy Colorado but it is slightly bigger in size. Canyon will pose a stiff challenge to Tacoma and Frontier after it launches. It has been incorporated into a pattern of innovative styling and operating efficiencies.
The previous version of Canyon was a huge hit because of its overall look and performance, so 2018 is likely to come up with new powertrain but a little tweak in exterior and interior styling. Keeping in mind about its previous sale the company is hoping that the 2018 version would live up to the expectation.
The exterior won’t undergo any radical change, but there will little makeover in various parts of the body. This mid-size pickup truck is always known for its overwhelming towing capacity, muscular outlook and strength. Canyon would come up with its same traditional outlook because GMC doesn’t want to lose its patent outlook. This new model will have a low body weight because it will be built using aluminum and other lightweight body parts which will in-turn increase mileage, aerodynamics, and performance.
The front end of the car will have a large black grille with chrome stripes embedded in it. In the front, there will be rectangular headlamp with crystal rectifier technology, new fog lamp, and broad, sturdy bonnet. At the side, it will have chrome touch in door locks. The body colored chrome side mirror with power folding feature, large footstep and 18 inches aluminum wheel. At the end, it will have a long bed liner, soft folding tonneau cover, and chrome beltline, large rear bumper with chrome linings, EZ lift, and high capacity tow.
