2021 GMC Canyon in Port Perry, ON

GMC has a well-earned reputation for building some of the best trucks in a very competitive segment of the global automotive industry. The 2021 GMC Canyon in Port Perry, ON is a highly capable, high-tech midsize pickup truck that offers a world-class interior that could easily fall into the luxury category. For the 2021 model year, GMC has revised the truck’s trim grades, Elevation Standard, Elevation, AT4, and Denali. Each model offers a specific experience that will quickly align with what a Gus Brown GM Port Perry customer wants to take home.


Tires and Wheels

Most people don’t think about their vehicles’ tires until they go flat. When a person is considering the 2021 Canyon, they will have a wide range of wheel and tire options to examine. The 2021 GMC Canyon is available with 17-, 18-, and 20-inch wheels that can be wrapped in all-season tires or Goodyear® Wrangler DuraTac® all-terrain tires.

Refined Accents

Pickup truck owners are notoriously averse to wanting to blend into the crowd. The 2021 GMC Canyon features several standard and widely available stylistic elements that will get the notice of true truck enthusiasts. Most 2021 Canyon trims will come with body-colour matching door handles and mirror housings for a very clean aesthetic. The Denali trim will feature several chrome accents, which will help that version be instantly recognizable.

Convenience Features

There is no doubt that a 2021 GMC Canyon will look great in someone’s driveway. However, it still needs to be able to do the things pickup trucks are meant to do. Most trim grades are equipped with EZ-Lift and Lower Tailgate and the CornerStep rear bumper. Both of these features will make the items in the cargo bed much more accessible. The remote locking tailgate feature has also been popular with Gus Brown GM customers.


Comfortable Seating Options

The midsize pickup truck class gets more competitive with each passing model year. Independent online reviews have praised the 2021 Canyon for offering one of the most comfortable front seats for the segment’s driver and passenger. People sitting in the back seat will have their overall comfort dictated by whether the truck is equipped with an extended cab or a crew cab. The latter of the two options will offer more passenger space.

Small-item Storage

Owners of the 2021 Canyon can certainly place many things in the pickup truck’s cargo bed. However, that wouldn’t be appropriate for everything that might be hauled in the current Canyon model. The rear seats in both cabin styles can be flipped up to allow owners to keep what they need inside the truck. GMC designers have also provided plenty of small-item storage cubbies in the passenger cabin.

Convenience Features

There are a lot of ways to stay comfortable while riding in the 2021 GMC Canyon. Gus Brown GM Port Perry customers can add the following features – depending on which trim grade and accessory package they choose:

  • Heated Steering Wheel
  • Heated Front Seats
  • Remote Entry/Ignition
  • Power Adjustable Seats


Available Engine Options

There is not a single piece of hyperbole in the idea that there is a 2021 GMC Canyon to meet anyone’s needs for a midsize pickup truck. Gus Brown GM Port Perry customers can choose among three available engine options when outfitting their 2021 Canyon. A naturally aspirated 2.5-litre, four-cylinder engine is standard on rear-wheel-drive versions of the Elevation Standard and Elevation models. The rest of the 2021 Canyon lineup will have one of two engines under the hood, a naturally aspirated 3.6-litre, V-6 power plant or a turbocharged 2.8-litre, four-cylinder Duramax diesel engine.

Towing Capacity

All 2021 GMC Canyon models are capable of producing impressive towing scores. An entry-level Elevation Standard or Elevation model can pull up to 1,588 kg (3,500 lbs.). Buyers choosing a rear-wheel-drive model with the crew cab will have a 2,286 kg (5,000 lbs.) towing capacity. A 2021 GMC Canyon that is appropriately equipped will have a maximum towing capacity of 3,493 kg (7,700 lbs).

Fuel Economy Scores

Pickup trucks are largely no longer the fuel-hungry beasts of model years past. The 2021 GMC Canyon can record up to 12.2 L/100 km in the city, and 9.4 L/100 km on the highway in the Elevation and Elevation Standard trims. The AT4 and Denali can post as much as 14.9 L/100 km in the city and 10.9 L/100 km on the highway. All figures are dependent on which engine, and cabin styles are chosen at the time of sale.


High-Speed Mobile Internet

It would be hard to explain how important accessing the internet would be to vehicle buyers just a generation ago. Modern jobs require modern vehicles, and the 2021 GMC Canyon is more than ready to respond with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot equipped as a standard feature on most of the truck’s trim grades. Additionally, several devices can use the mobile connection simultaneously and from several metres away from the passenger cabin.

Standard Smartphone Integration

The majority of people with smartphones would likely not know what to do without them. Every 2021 GMC Canyon will offer easy access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications. Drivers and passengers in the 2021 Canyon will be able to easily access most of their favourite applications while out on the road. Compatibility with Amazon Alexa is also built-in to the infotainment system used by the 2021 GMC Canyon.

Premium Entertainment

There isn’t anything much better than listening to a favourite song on the way to or home from work. Most 2021 GMC Canyon trim grades can be equipped with a premium Bose® sound system, depending on which accessory package is chosen during the ordering process at Gus Brown GM Port Perry.


Active Safety Technology

The 2021 GMC Canyon is already one of the most technologically advanced pickup trucks in its class. Naturally, this also applies to the active safety technology equipped in the current Canyon. Systems like Rear Park Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and Tire Fill Alert will act as another set of eyes that are constantly looking out for dangers on the road. However, it is important to note that these systems do not replace safe driving practices.

Available Rear Camera

Maneuvering a pickup truck in tight areas can be challenging. The Rear Vision Camera available on most 2021 GMC Canyon trim grades will make that task much easier. Not only will this feature come in handy parking the truck, but it will also be a game-changer when it comes to hitching up a trailer. The Rear Vision Camera is standard on the Elevation Standard, Elevation and AT4 models.

Teen Driver Mode

Getting one’s driver’s license is a major milestone in life. While teenagers obtain their first taste of independence, parents are left with at least some worries. The Teen Driver mode is standard equipment on all 2021 GMC Canyon models. It is designed to encourage safe driving behaviours like fastening seat belts before leaving. Parents can monitor driving behaviour through an in-vehicle report card.
