Next-gen Pro-Grade Mid-sizer Starts at $21,880
The first batch of 2015 GMC Canyon pickups recently was loaded up and shipped out from GM's Wentzville (Mo.) Assembly, with the new trucks expected to reach customers later this month.
When it arrives, it will introduce a wide range of modern innovations to the segment, including:
Uncoincidentally, those kinds of advantages are leading to some red-hot demand for the 2015 GMC Canyon even ahead of its official on-sale date. In fact, GM already announced that it would deploy a third shift at Wentzville next year to keep up with the anticipated sales rush, while further creating another 750 new jobs in the process. For those keeping track, GM investments in support of the 2015 GMC Canyon (and Chevy Colorado) now have exceeded $500 million and resulted in some 2,065 new U.S. jobs.
Said Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president of GMC: “We have heard our customers loud and clear—they want a modern midsize truck that’s refined and capable. We’re excited to introduce them to the Canyon. We’re confident the Canyon will redefine the segment, with the latest technologies and premium materials throughout.”
(Note: The Wentzville Assembly complex also builds the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana commercial vans.)
