According to GMC, the 2017 GMC Canyon is the only high-end mid-size truck available on the market. When you take a look at all of the 2017 GMC Canyon’s specs, it’s easy to see why General Motors would say that, and also why the Canyon has been so popular since it was redesigned two years ago. Since then, many competitors have tried to do what the GMC Canyon does, but none have come close quite yet.
