Just like its corporal sibling, Chevy Colorado, the Canyon will also remain in production for a couple of more years. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the next year is about to bring changes in various aspects. The new model has already been presented and it is expected to hit the market later in the year. One of the most notable changes is a new trim level organization, which includes some brand-new names, including the all-new AT4 versions. On the other side, some things have remained the same, such as the famous flagship trim which will, in this case, come as the 2021 GMC Canyon Denali. However, this version also comes with a couple of notable changes.
2021 GMC Canyon Denali Design
Although we are talking about essentially the same pickup truck, the new version comes with several interesting changes. On one side, the mechanical aspect of the truck remains the same. On the other, there are some pretty interesting novelties. The new 2021 GMC Canyon Denali chrome wheels are some of the most notable details. Moreover, this model is generally known for loads of chrome. This material is present in so many areas, including door handles, grille, bumper, step bars etc.
Speaking of the grille, it continues with the exclusive design. It is notably different compared to the rest of the lineup. Still, the front end has been slightly revised and now resembles the recently redesigned Sierra model and looks bolder and more muscular.
The 2021 GMC Canyon Denali interior comes with even more interesting novelties and all changes come in order to make this cabin look even more upscale. For example, there are new details like open-pore ash wood trim, aluminum decor and unique stitching. Also, you may count on a new Cocoa/Dark Atmosphere color scheme. Besides these novelties, you may count on typical Denali features, such as an exclusive steering wheel design, as well as a pretty long list of standard equipment.
Among standard features, you will find things like heated and ventilated seats, heated steering wheel, spray-in bedliner, upgraded audio system, navigation and many more.
2021 GMC Canyon Denali Configurations
When it comes to 2021 GMC Canyon Denali configurations, this trim level comes exclusively in a crew cab layout. Also, there are two bed sizes in the offer. Standard models come with a 5’2” bed, while the 2021 GMC Canyon Denali long bed version features a 6’2” cargo bed. Also, keep in mind that long bed models are available only with a 4×4 drive.
2021 GMC Canyon Denali Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, things have remained pretty much the same. While the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is reserved for lower-grade trims, both V6 unit and turbodiesel are available in the 2021 Canyon Denali. Standard models come with a well-known 3.6-liter V6 engine. It is good for about 308 horsepower and provides pretty strong acceleration and overall performances. On the other side, a diesel version isn’t that fast but ensures better towing capacity and significantly better fuel economy. Such mode can tow up to 7.600 pounds.
Speaking of fuel economy, the V6 model returns around 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. On the other side, the turbodiesel returns around 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
2021 GMC Canyon Denali Release Date and Price
Despite that the new version already had a premiere, the new Canyon Denali will hit the market later in the year. We are still waiting for a more precise launch date. On the other side, the price shouldn’t be significantly different compared to the current model, which starts at around 40.500 dollars.
