The 2015 GMC Canyon will make its official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Similar to the previous-generation Canyon, the 2015 model will be related to the Chevrolet Colorado, which made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. To set it apart however, expect the GMC Canyon to feature different styling and interior trim than the Colorado.

Under the hood, expect the same powerplants for the Canyon as the Colorado: a 2.5-liter four cylinder with 193 hp and a 3.6-liter V6 with 302 hp. Shortly after the vehicles’ launch, the American automaker will add a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine to the lineup. The entry-level four-cylinder model will have the option of a six-speed manual transmission while the other models will come with a six-speed automatic.

    It’s good to see G.M. re-entering the mid-size segment, but they better make sure build quality is high, and there are no defective parts.if they want to seriously cut into Tacoma sales.

    I’m very excited to see what the 2.8 liter diesel is all about. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why truck manufacturers haven’t gotten a clue about diesels until now. Small turbo diesels are perfect for light duty mid-sized trucks. The big thing GM is getting wrong here is not offering the 6-speed manual with the diesel. Autos are rarely tuned correctly for the power band of a diesel and therefore wind up being less efficient and less fun to drive. One thing is for sure, this thing better be excellent when it comes out. There isn’t much competition in this segment, but Frontier and Tacoma are both excellent trucks that won’t easily be beat. Please GM, get it right this time!

    Why can’t GM make a loaded truck with a manual transmission anymore? After driving my 1995 S-10 for 15 years (4.3 5 speed, ext cab)I bought a new 2012 Colorado extended cab V8 which GM flat out LIED about the fuel economy. Put a manual transmission in the V6 Colorado and I’ll buy it. If i wanted a stripped down work truck with a 5 speed I’d buy one. Listen up GM, LIFELONG customers are speaking to you, are you listening???
