GMC is following the same lines of Chevrolet by reducing the amount of brightwork on one of their trucks. The automaker announced a new Nightfall Edition for the Canyon today.
Available on the Canyon SLE Crew Cab model, the Nightfall Edition comes with a Onyx Black paint color, along with a number of blacked-out trim pieces such as a front grille, cab steps, and eighteen-inch alloy wheels with black inserts. Nightfall also includes automatic climate control and remote start.
“The new Canyon Nightfall Edition expands the Canyon lineup and gives style-conscious customers another choice. Importantly, customers get the great looks of the Canyon Nightfall Edition and its unique content at a greater value than ordering the features separately,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing.
GMC hasn't announced pricing for the Canyon Nightfall Edition, but does say it will be available to buy in the second quarter.
