GMC Introduces 2015 Canyon Nightfall Edition
Special edition model offers sleek, shadowy appearance




DETROIT – GMC today introduced the 2015 Canyon Nightfall Edition – a stylized, blacked-out edition of the brand’s all-new premium midsize truck that blends a dramatic appearance with popular features and accessories.

The Canyon Nightfall Edition is offered on SLE crew cab models, either 2WD or 4WD, in Onyx Black and will be available in the first quarter of 2015. In addition to standard equipment on the SLE, the Canyon Nightfall Edition includes:

  • Unique black grille
  • Black assist steps
  • Factory spray-in bedliner
  • 18-inch multi-spoke aluminum wheels with Dark Argent painted inserts
  • Polished exhaust tip
  • Automatic climate control
  • Remote start

“The new Canyon Nightfall Edition expands the Canyon lineup and gives style-conscious customers another choice,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “Importantly, customers get the great looks of the Canyon Nightfall Edition and its unique content at a greater value than ordering the features separately.”

The distinctive appearance of the Canyon Nightfall Edition reflects customer preferences for personalization and features that support different lifestyle interests. More than 40 percent of the initial orders for Canyon include at least one selection from the comprehensive collection of accessories GMC developed for the truck. The Canyon accessories portfolio includes the available GearOn™ system for optimal cargo management, as well as bed protection, styling enhancements and trailering components.

“The Canyon is a lifestyle enabler and its accessories lineup matches lifestyles of all types,” said Aldred. “The accessories take their inspiration from how customers use their vehicle, and they are crafted cohesively with the team of designers and engineers.”

Additional standard content on the Canyon Nightfall Edition includes:

  • Rear-vision camera
  • Eight-inch-diagonal Color Touch radio with GMC IntelliLink
  • OnStar with 4G LTE and its standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot (includes three-month/3GB data trial, whichever comes first)
  • Two USB ports for charging located on the rear of the center console in addition another USB port inside the console
  • [Multi-color driver information center display
  • Soft-touch instrument panel with aluminum trim
  • Auto-dimming inside rearview mirror
  • Remote keyless entry
  • Tilting and telescoping steering column
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls
  • SiriusXM satellite radio (includes three-month trial)
  • Automatic locking rear differential (4WD models)
  • 17-inch aluminum wheels






Canyon was named Autoweek’s Best of the Best truck for 2015. It offers the segment’s best horsepower and EPA-estimated fuel economy: 200 horsepower (149 kW) and 27 mpg highway (2WD) from a standard 2.5L I-4; and 305 horsepower (227 kW) and 26 mpg (2WD) from an available 3.6L V-6. The V-6 engine enables a segment-leading 7,000-pound trailering rating.

Meh.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good looking truck, but there's hardly enough there to warrant making it a "special" edition. I know, I know, because marketing. But this is the equivalent of taking the ATS-V with carbon fiber trim and calling the car "ATS-V Carbon Fiber Edition", which would just be plain silly.

Looks nice, but it looks like something I could have bought at the dealership already.

I really hope that each year see's actual improvements. They have a good start, but if they don't keep upping their game it won't get off the ground. 8 speed auto, if GM has/needs a lighter duty than the current 8l90 would be a great addition or option on 2016's. From what I've seen, a little more gear under them would help a lot.

So it's a black grill on top of a set of options that are already on the build & price page?

Throw me a bone here. How about at least tinting the headlight covers and giving me a custom logo embroidered in the seats. "Here's the new Camaro. If you check the 'Black paint' box it becomes the Midnight edition..."

I like it, for those that say it isn't worth the time I'd say for you just move on. I'm sure it will pull in a few extra sales for a low cost to GM. But I do hope GM is working on something a little more substantial, like a Cyclone for the people who want more.

This. It's like the Rally Packages for Silverado, everyone complained that they were just sticker packages but seems like real world consumers enjoy them. GM doesn't have to invest too much in creating these and it gives buyers some choices.

If you don't like it then just move on to the next Canyon in the lot. It's not like dealers are going order all Nightfall editions or hold a gun to your head to buy one.
