GMC is also adding new off-roading inspired All Terrain X Trim to the 2017 lineup due out later this fall.
GM’s new Hydra-Matic 8L45 eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the old six-speed. It widens the gear ratio from last years 6.0 to 7.0. It weighs roughly the same, too. GM calls the transmission class-exclusive.
Other new and revised features for the 2017 Canyon lineup include a new IntelliLink radio with 7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen, an available heated steering wheel and three new color choices: Dark Slate Metallic, Mineral Metallic and Red Quartz Metallic.
General Motors will also offer its standard Teen Driver feature first introduced on the Chevrolet Malibu.
GMC All Terrain X Edition
GM dubs the All Terrain X as the “most off-road capable” Canyon with its new off-road suspension, transfer case shield, all-weather floor liners, and Hill Descent Control. Because looks do matter, new touches include a body-color grille, special red stitched upholstery, and unique 17-inch aluminum wheels.
