2021 GMC Canyon for Sale in Springfield, MA
GMC has refreshed their Canyon pickup truck for the 2021 model year, with results that are sure to please. The upscale Denali trim has been enhanced with 20-inch wheels, an improved grille that’s more prominent than ever, and chrome accents that heighten the look. Also, a brand-new, off-road-oriented trim level called AT4 enters the lineup with beefy 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, an off-road-tuned suspension, distinct interior and exterior styling, an underbody skid plate, and an electronic limited-slip rear differential.
Trims, Powertrains and Towing
The 2021 GMC Canyon is available in two cab styles – extended and crew – with either a short or long cargo bed, and four trim levels: Elevation Standard, Elevation, AT4, and Denali. The standard engine for the rear-wheel drive versions of the Elevation Standard and Elevation is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 200 hp and 191 lb.-ft. of torque; it’s joined to a six-speed automatic transmission. A 3.6-liter V6 that generates 308 hp (best-in-class) and 275 lb.-ft. of torque paired to an eight-speed automatic tranny is standard with the 4WD versions of the Elevation Standard and Elevation, AT4, and both the RWD and 4WD Denali.
Last on the list is the late-availability turbocharged 2.8-liter four-cylinder Duramax Turbo Diesel that brews 181 hp and 369 lb.-ft. of torque and gets mated to the six-speed automatic transmission. All trims, except for the AT4, come with RWD; 4WD is standard with the AT4 and optional for the rest. The maximum towing capacity for the 2021 GMC Canyon is 7,700 pounds. This is attainable with this particular configuration: the RWD Elevation crew cab with the short bed and the Duramax diesel powertrain, plus the optional Trailering Package (which will also be available at a later date).
The Elevation Standard comes with 18-inch wheels, cloth seating, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rearview camera system. The Elevation adds keyless entry, remote start, heated side mirrors, automatic climate control, a manual sliding rear window, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-trimmed tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, LED fog lights, and a remote locking tailgate. The AT4 is provided with the heated front seats and special off-road features, such as 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, hill descent control, a special off-road suspension, and a transfer case shield. The Denali is loaded with a heated steering wheel, 20-inch wheels, an HD rearview camera, chrome exterior accents, cargo box LED lighting, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, a wireless smartphone charger, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a spray-on bedliner. Most of these higher-end features are optional on the lower-level trims.
The Denali is outfitted with forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and rear parking sensors, all three of which are optional for the Elevation and AT4. The Elevation and above also receive OnStar & GMC Connected Services, providing a variety of convenience and safety-related features via smartphone. This is optional for the Elevation Standard.
The Elevation Standard gets an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth audio streaming for two devices, two USB ports, and a six-speaker audio system. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is available. The Elevation and AT4 are upgraded with a standard hotspot and an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen; HD radio is available. The Denali tops off with HD radio, infotainment voice recognition, navigation, satellite radio, and a premium seven-speaker Bose audio system. Each of those features can be opted for on the Elevation and AT4.
