2015 GMC Canyon

As we all know, every Chevrolet’s pickup has its GMC counterpart which, although it is not identical, it is pretty much the same model, with some differences that are most visual nature. That is the case with Sierra and Silverado. That was also the case with S-10 and Sonoma and same thing is with their successors Colorado and Canyon. The Canyon and Colorado were originally launched in 2004 and so far, there are two generations. The 2015 Canyon will come as second generation model, which is present since 2012, and it will come with some refreshments.
