After a number of years spent on the shelf, the 2015 GMC Canyon is back in the lineup at Palmen GM. The new midsize pickup truck hits the ground running with levels of the performance and refinement that simply aren’t available on competing midsize pickup trucks. This particular segment of the automotive industry doesn’t have many entrants, this doesn’t mean the competition will easily give up their positions. By design, this new pickup was built to make no compromises and take no prisoners on its way to the top of the class. A simple rundown of the specifications for the 2015 GMC Canyon vs. 2015 Nissan Frontier will bear this out quickly and clearly.
One of the most attractive elements of owning a midsize pickup like the 2015 Canyon is that it offers plenty of capability without the additional bulk and weight of a full-size model. Like its Nissan competitor, the 2015 Canyon comes with highly-efficient four-cylinder engine for increased fuel-economy. Even with this base powerplant, the 2015 GMC Canyon easily overpowers the Nissan Frontier. The 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine available with the new GMC Canyon can produce up to 200 horsepower, compared to the 152 horsepower from the Frontier.
Among the first things a potential buyer of the 2015 GMC Canyon will notice is the smooth and compliant ride. Rough pavement, potholes or otherwise less than desirable road conditions are little to no problem for the new midsize pickup truck. Another place where the 2015 GMC Canyon vs. 2015 Nissan Frontier competition swings heavily toward the new Canyon is in available technology. At this point, there is hardly a vehicle on the American market that doesn’t come with full Bluetooth connectivity. The next generation of information and technology use in the 2015 Canyon comes with the standard 4G LTE wifi hotspot. The new, strong and secure internet connection produced by the vehicle itself can allow several devices to be connected at once and comes with a variety of data packages for every kind of user.
Beyond sleek looks and cutting edge technology, the 2015 Canyon is still a pickup truck and it must be able to perform as such. A major design feature is the tiered cargo bed system. With the new 2015 GMC Canyon, a platform of sorts can be easily constructed in the bed that will allow for valuable tools to be hidden from view without having to give up much in what can be carried in the back.
