    GMC Adds A Bit of Drama to the Canyon Via the Nightfall Edition

    GMC Infuses the Canyon With Some Blacked-Out Style


    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.

    Sweet Truck, but I for one do not like the classic black. Why not make it mettalic with some depth to the paint job like you could reach into it reaching for stars.

     

    I do love the monochromatic look. So much better than the over kill the trucks are now with Chrome.

     

    Better yet, if they want Chrome, then do black Chrome.

    I reckon giving it a different color will get customers to buy it and like the look as having a vehicle which does not look nice to look at will maybe make the driver not enjoy the experience of driving the car in the first place. Giving it a good look is what will attract the customers and also, selling it at a reasonable price will get the vehicles sold and not sitting in the store and losing the value if it is priced too high.I think it is a good thing the company is doing have a color change is good and will work out if it is well done and the finish looks good and the people are happy when buying it and will enjoy it.

    I hate black cars and said I would never buy another 3 black cars ago.

     

    Yes I love the look but they do take extra work to remain clean.

     

    I have said I will look for a red one or but may end up with cyber grey or I hope the iridium metallic makes its way there from the large truck.

    The real plus for a solid black or red is I can touch them up and you would never know it was chipped. Metallic's are a lot tougher.

     

    I do like the lack of chrome and that is what would really sell me here. I hate cheap plastic chrome on the new trucks.
