2021 GMC Canyon at Budds’ Chev in Oakville, ON
It may be classified as a midsize truck, but the 2021 GMC Canyon offers nothing short of full-size capability. Smart, luxurious, and packed with utility, the Canyon is a premium pickup that can compete with the heavyweights, and you can find yours at Budds’ Chev: the premier destination for all things Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC in Oakville, Ontario.
The 2021 GMC Canyon is a powerful looking truck, with a muscular body and rugged details. From the exclusive black painted 18” wheels and body colour grille of the Canyon Elevation, to the redesigned grille and chrome exterior accents of the Canyon Denali, this is a take-no-prisoners type of truck. The Canyon AT4, in particular, wears its off-road abilities on its sleeve thanks to red recovery hooks and Goodyear® Wrangler 31” Duratrac® tires. An array of available features helps elevate the 2021 Canyon, with an EZ-Lift and Lower Tailgate with Remote Locking, upper tie-downs, spray-on bedliner, and 5” Chrome Assist Steps representing just a few of the options available on this GMC pickup. There’s no shortage of luxury or utility found inside the incredibly quiet cabin of the 2021 GMC Canyon; from the rear-folding split bench with under-seat storage found in the all Canyon Crew Cab models, to the perforated leather-appointed front seats and Ash-Wood trim of the premium Denali trim, the Canyon is one sleek, utility-packed pickup.
