2019 GMC Canyon Denali 4WD Crew Cab Review & Test Drive By Malcolm Hogan , 2018

With the growing demand for trucks and SUVs, manufacturers are quickly warming up to the new demands of the masses. With such, GMC’s latest Canyon midsized pickup truck attempts to win over buyers with its Denali trim level that features many welcomed updates to find a better footing against its slim competition in such a unique segment.

The new 2019 GMC Canyon Denali, the highest trim level available for the Canyon, polishes some of its characteristics to better fit what is expected out of the coveted Denali trim line. Following its resurgence and redesign as a 2015 model, the GMC Canyon Denali continues to offer a respectable V6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Apart from the new platforms welcomed traits, the 2019 model year gets an updated infotainment unit interface with new menu sets that improve upon the already user-friendliness that we’ve adorned in recent years from GMC and Chevrolet trucks. The infotainment unit, in addition to its update to use more simplistic views and menus, adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard features. Additionally, the new 2019 Canyon gets a high-resolution camera on the SLE and above trim levels as standard. Driving the 2019 GMC Canyon Denali out on the road with the 4WD system put in its Auto setting provides a comfortable ride quality with an assuring footing. The Canyon behaves well on the road and is more car-like than ever before. Moreover, the V6 engine with its 8-speed automatic transmission tow up to a respectable 7,700 pounds, which leads the pack in its segment. Out in the lined bed you can expect to haul up to 1,620 pounds without issue. Fuel consumption is slightly better than full-sized trucks, which is what you expect from the midsized segment. Though, the GMC Canyon Denali 4WD does justice to be able to tow nearly as much as most mainstream full-sized trucks and still get a decent EPA figure of 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. In an attempt to gain some additional momentum with sales, the new 2019 GMC Canyon Denali was spruced up with improvements in the area of its front leather seats now having ventilation for both seats along with heating. There is plenty of connectivity provided through a wireless phone charger, USB ports, and the traditional Bluetooth connection. For a well-rounded package, the GMC Canyon Denali adds attractive darkened alloy wheels, which goes the distance in the looks department to better fit what is expected out of a GMC Denali trimmed vehicle. The minor differences in the GMC Canyon Denali adding the few additional luxury amenities and looks attempt to set it farther part from its closely matched Chevy Colorado sibling, which are very similar vehicles.

2019 GMC CANYON DENALI - REVIEW AND TEST DRIVE - Oct 10, 2018

Exterior: The chrome grill’s large size and signature design makes a statement, while the same metal extends to the running boards, mirror caps, door handles, exhaust tip, and passenger side-badge. The 20″ wheels punctuate this vehicle’s Denali-specific statement, as do the LED taillights. Step bumpers lead to the truck bed, which contains a Denali exclusive, sprayed-in liner with the quality punctuated by the badging emblazoned below the rear window. The tie-downs are also housed within the walls of the truck bed.

Interior: The new intelli-link system is cloud-based with navigation accessed through the SD card reader above the two USB ports, with the navigation software located in an SD card. Updates are uploaded onto the SD card that’s mailed to the driver, who switches it out in their own vehicle. The dash screen behind the steering wheel is updated with a fixed-lock screen digitally displaying the driving speed, a clock, the road’s speed limit (ideal on roads without signs posted), and fuel life. At the top of the screen is a drop-down menu displaying speed, trip distance, fuel range, oil life, tire and oil pressure, radio, phone, and navigation. The screen’s homepage displays speed limit, driving speed, and fuel range. The steering-wheel buttons allowing the driver to access all menus are standard. To the right of the steering wheel are updated buttons below the navigation screen that include tow-haul mode, traction control, bed light, traffic caution, lane-departure warning, and parking sensors to detect obstacles near the front and rear bumpers. In addition are climate control, driver and passenger seat adjustment and heating buttons, as well as the USB ports, an auxiliary plug, and a 12-volt charger. Wireless charging capabilities include a charging pad in the cup holder within reach of the driver’s right hand. When you place a cellphone in the pad, the screen above the A/C displays the charging process. Performance: The 3.6-liter V6 engine provides 308 horse-power. The tow-package enables towing to 7,000 pounds, or 7,700 pounds with an upgrade to diesel. The wheels and tires provide a smooth, sporty ride. The handling is also responsive, with steering assistance a GM standard. The assist kicks in with lower speeds and decreases as you speed up, making for a comfortable, easy to control steering experience. Tow package includes buttons to the left of steering wheel adjusting the tow. The four-wheel drive includes adjustable settings. Safety: The HD back-up camera is updated to give drivers a clear view of what’s behind them when driving in reverse. As part of this feature, the park-assist feature helps make parallel parking safer with park- assist lines, as well as guides to help back into a tow-trailer. Park-assist sensors add extra protection by alerting you of obstacles in the vehicle’s path with settings and indicators. Forward-collision and lane-departure warning features provide audible notification of which side the vehicle is drifting toward.
