The 2022 GMC Canyon on the road.

2022 Changes for the GMC Canyon Pickup

Pickup trucks routinely rank as one of the most popular vehicle platforms in the global automotive industry. The reasons for this hardly needs mentioning. Capability and overall flexibility usually lead any discussions of why someone is buying a pickup. Midsize pickup trucks like the GMC Canyon draw a loyal following because they provide much of the same capability and flexibility as their full-size siblings but in a nimbler and more efficient package. The changes made to the 2022 GMC Canyon are centred around the truck’s more refined upper trim grades. Let’s take a look at what you can expect to find when the 2022 Canyon is available at the Budds’ Chev showroom.
