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:

  • Top safety features like forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning and a standard rearview camera system
  • Cutting-edge technologies such as the latest Chevy MyLink infotainment and connectivity system, as well as OnStar's 4G LTE service and mobile wi-fi capabilities
  • Professional Grade standard amenities ranging from signature LED lighting to a four-way power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Plenty of capability, highlighted by an available 305-hp V6 that can haul up to 7,000 lbs. and a rugged four-wheel-drive system
  • Two years/24,000 miles of complimentary Pro Grade Protection for standard scheduled maintenance
  • Eye-opening fuel-economy marks, with a standard 200-hp four-cylinder engine, a 2.8-liter turbodiesel powerplant that will launch in 2016, and a best-in-segment 26 mpg mark for the V6-powered 2015 GMC Canyon

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.)
