Official 2015 GMC Canyon Release Date
UPDATE: The 2015 GMC Canyon release date has finally been announced. General Motors said that the Canyon will go on sale this Fall. Head to our blog post on the 2015 GMC Canyon specs and features to view pictures and find out about all that the new mid-size pickup will offer.
There is some good news for all of the GMC Canyon lovers out there. Production of the mid-size truck ended in 2012, but it will be making a return next year. The official 2015 GMC Canyon release date is still up in the air, but the manufacturer announced that we will be provided with a look at the redesigned truck when it’s unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month.
It was rumored that the truck would first be revealed at the auto show, but that rumor has since been confirmed. The latest issue of NAIAS Connect, the Detroit Auto Show’s newsletter, revealed that the 2015 GMC Canyon would be one of the 50 production models to receive a global debut at the show — which will run from Jan. 13 until Jan. 26.
So far, the leak from the NAIAS newsletter is about the only information that has been released about the all-new Canyon. GMC has been tight-lipped about the specifics of the Canyon, and has only provided one picture of the redesigned mid-size which we have provided above. As you can see from the picture, it’s being compared to the popular Chevy Colorado, but General Motors promises that there will be “more differentiations” between the two models.
“[The] GMC will be more about conquest,” GM President Mark Reuss said. “The Chevy will be about value.”
It’s expected that the Canyon will at least be stylistically different than the Colorado, but it would be surprising if they were equipped with similar powertrains. We expect the new 2015 GMC Canyon to borrow the majority of its design cues from the 2014 GMC Sierra, better known as the Canyon’s “bigger brother,” but as we said, nothing has been confirmed yet.
The best news that we can hope for is that GM releases some bits of information prior to the Canyon’s debut next month, but if not we will have to wait until later next month. We do hope, however, that the unveiling provides an estimated timeline for the official 2015 GMC Canyon release date. We will have more information about the all-new mid-size truck on the Briggs Buick GMC blog as it becomes available.
