In general, the GMC Canyon is an excellent choice if you’re especially looking for a midsize pickup truck with powerful engines and a smooth demeanor. While its new V6 engine made available since the 2017 Canyon that offers a slightly better power output, the diesel engine will easily impress you with its torque. For the 2018 GMC Canyon Crew Cab, we expect that the pickup truck will be basically unchanged, meaning that there is less likely any major upgrades that may change the vehicle significantly.
2018 GMC Canyon Crew Cab Interior
The new GMC Canyon Crew Cab will still offer the same high-quality materials inside its cabin—soft-touch plastics, genuine aluminum surround framing the 8-inch touchscreen for the IntelliLink infotainment system, and padded panels for doors. This is one among other reasons why the Canyon is a more preferred choice than its cousin, the popular Chevrolet Colorado. Although the gauges are designed to seem as generic as possible, the controls are basically intuitive and perfectly placed. The infotainment system has an easy-to-use interface featuring extra capabilities added only recently—Apple CarPlay compatibility built into it and new voice command system.
When it comes to comfort, the front seats can offer it nicely. On long drives, passenger and driver may not find it too firm. The taller adults will be grateful for the more plentiful legroom and headroom, and for the new GMC Canyon Crew Cab model, its rear seat also provides extra legroom. Plus, it can manage to keep two adults comfortable sitting on the rear seat, although this still lacks the space compared to the full-size crew cab models. And do not forget about the storage space under rear seats that surely boosts practicality.
2018 GMC Canyon Crew Cab Engine
The 2018 version of GMC Canyon Crew Cab is offered in three engine options, depending on which trim you choose. The standard 2.5L 4-cyinder engine generates a total output of 200 horsepower and 191 lb.-ft., paired to a 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic. Its tow rating is 3,500 pounds. The more powerful 3.6L V6 engine is good for 308 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque, paired to an 8-speed automatic with advanced control system for smoother shifts and better acceleration. Its maximum towing capacity is 7,000 pounds. Opt for the SLE and SLT crew cab models for the turbocharged 2.8L 4-cylinder diesel engine, producing 181 horsepower but outstanding 369 lb.-ft. of torque and matched to a 6-speed automatic. Its towing capacity is 7,700 pounds at maximum.
2018 GMC Canyon Crew Cab Price
The standard MSRP for the GMC Canyon Crew Cab 2018 is still unannounced for now. However, you can take a look at the MSRP for the previous models as your reference. Remember that the price will increase as you choose the higher trim level and more optional packages or features.
After all, although the other rivals also have interesting offers, the 2018 GMC Canyon Crew Cab will remain a truly impressive choice, thanks to its comfortable ride quality, torque-rich diesel engine, availability of hi-tech features, and a size that makes it easier for you to maneuver compared to the full size crew cabs.
