While all the absorption has been absorbed on the GMC Sierra Elevation and its accepted turbocharged 2.7-liter L3B I4 engine, GMC additionally offers the Elevation nameplate on the Canyon midsize truck. Somehow, the actuality that a GMC Canyon Elevation exists has gone all but unnoticed, apparently as a aftereffect of GMC never officially announcing the vehicle.
The GMC Canyon Elevation amalgamation includes a set of blacked-out 18-inch aluminum auto captivated in P265/60R18 all-season tires, forth with a dark grille and a body-color grille surround.
Unlike the Sierra Elevation, which is a trim akin aural the lineup, the Canyon Elevation is an aesthetics package that can be grafted assimilate the Canyon on SLE Crew Cab, Short Box body style. Two engine choices are available: either the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ agent (308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque) or the 2.8L LWN I4 turbo-diesel Duramax (181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque).

The acceptable account is that GM isn’t charging an arm and a leg for the GMC Canyon Elevation. The package only costs about $650 on top of the $34,840 starting MSRP of the Canyon SLE.

Since both Chevrolet and GMC accept absitively to skip the ahead accepted 2020 mid-cycle brace for their midsize trucks, we can accept why not abundant accomplishment has been put into revamping the Canyon. We’ll accept to delay for the future Canyon redesign, appointed in a few years, for above changes to happen. In the meantime, we accept this rather adorable and affordable Canyon Elevation.
