    Spying: GMC Canyon Denali


    • Caught! GMC's Next Denali Model

    From the not surprising file, a spy photographer has gotten the first indication of a Canyon Denali. Back in September, we reported that GMC's chief wants a Canyon Denali, but didn't give a possible timeline for when it will come out.

    Pictures show a prototype Canyon wearing the Denali's chrome mesh grille and chrome bumper behind some camouflage. Now the prototype doesn't feature a chrome rear bumper like other Denali models. But it doesn't mean that the production model will not feature one.

    No pictures of the prototype's interior, but we expect the usual Denali upgrades.

    And a Cyclone please.

    Agreed, this is the perfect place to use that Twin Turbo V6 in a new Syclone Pickup Truck. But  then also take the Terrain and build a New Typhoon! :metal:

    I think you will see a ZR2 like package for the GMC and Chevy first. It is much easier to do and much more profitable. Now add a Raptor killing turbo to that it may be interesting.

     

    I would just be happy with the V6 in a ZQ8 suspension in standard and Crew cab. That too was an easy and profitable platform.

    This truck looks absolutely amazing! Honestly, I am not really much of a truck fan but this truck is very nice. Plus it's only a V6! Most trucks this size are a V8 when it comes to what's under the hood. I wouldn't mind driving this to work everyday.

    This may be my next vehicle but at this point it would be a SLT2 with all options unless there is something more than just some added trim. I really am not a chrome fan anyways. If Chevy does a Gear like nose I may look to it.

    I hope there is more to it than just chrome trim... but with how they do the Acadia Denali and Terrain Denali, I doubt there are any powertrain changes in the works.  I'm sure you'll be able to buy a 4-cylinder Canyon Denali if you wanted one.

    No I do not expect much in drivetrains at this point. Yes I expect the 4 to be offered as the base engine.

     

    I Got our SLT2 just a month before they announced the Terrain Denali. Looking at the price difference and the few added trim items it was not worth the cost to me and I would have kept to the SLT2.

     

    Now at some point I would love to see them add more and different hardware like a Haldex AWD system to a Terrain and Acadia also some other items that are functional and non trim items I think that would really set them apart.

    But the reality of pricing comes in. Like the Truck here A Denali loaded will be at least $40K or over in crew cab. It could be close to $45 even. Then if you start to add some expensive toys the cost would even grown more. Just how much would someone pay for one of these trucks becomes the issue.

     

    You could easily price one out of the segment and then the sales taper off. The fact is the addition of chrome and some stitching works and they make a heck of a lot of money with it. While not for me more power to em for  making easy money here.

    With every model that offers Denali trim selling at minimum 25% of them as Denalis... there isn't much motivation for GMC to do much more than chrome and different interior plastic.  If you could get 25%+ of Terrain customers to take a $3000 up charge just for that, wouldn't you?

    That is part of it but also how much will the marker bear price wise for a GMC Terrain?  You are not going to get many buyers over $50K as it is now.

     

    On the other hand the Sierra is offered in a AWD  [Not 4WD] package with the 6.2 and then the other features but they can get away with the higher price on this model as there are so few other choices like it at this level. The King Ranch is trim and the High Country also is mostly just trim.

     

    It does come down to if you can make money with some chrome trim and stitching why try a harder but also this is not a top end line as to where you can charge just any price for every model in the line up. Maybe some day they may get there but right now it would be difficult. GMC only has so much cap room with the present models and it works.

    For the new K2xxx models, the Sierra Denali models lost AWD that the previous models used and now feature the regular 4WD system as on all other 4WD Sierras.

      The seemingly never-ending diesel heavy-duty truck war is back in force with Ford announcing the power figures for the F-Series Super Duty back in the summer. We were wondering when either FCA or GM would strike back. Well GM did this over the weekend by accidently and then subsequently deleting the figures for the next-generation Duramax V8 diesel.
      Truck Trend got screenshots of GM Powertrain's website where the details of the L5P 6.6L Duramax turbodiesel are there to see: 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. Compared the 6.7L PowerStoke V8 found in the 2017 F-Series Super Duty, the updated Duramax produces 5 more horsepower but is slight behind in torque (15 down from the PowerStroke's 925 pound-feet).
      We know for sure that the new Duramax will debut a new air intake system (you can see the new hood scoop in the picture above). More air is a good thing as it means better cooling and more power.
      The Texas State Fair is this week and it has become a showplace for the various truck manufacturers to make big announcements. We wouldn't be shocked if General Motors debuts the new Duramax there.

      We know that Jeep is planning to replace the Compass and Patriot with one new model later this year, and we now have our first look at it undisguised. Brazilan outlet AUTOO got their hands of the new model before a photo shoot. 
      We can't tell if the name is Compass or something else on the front door due to the poor quality of the pictures. Everyone seems to believe it is Compass so we're going with that. The design looks to be a mashup of Grand Cherokee in the front and Cherokee for the remainder. There is the iconic seven-slot grille up front, albeit somewhat narrow. 
      AUTOO says the Brazilian-spec Compass will be offered with a 2.0L Tigershark four-cylinder or 2.0L Turbodiesel. Both engines will come paired with a nine-speed automatic and the choice of front or all-wheel drive. It would be safe to assume that the U.S. version will come with the 2.4L Tigershark.
      Jeep will debut the next Compass at the at the São Paulo Auto Show in Brazil this November. Expect a debut for the U.S. sometime thereafter.

      While Ford is introducing an updated 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and ten-speed automatic for the 2017 F-150, the 2018 F-150 is more interesting to us. This is because Ford will be giving their full-size truck a facelift and a diesel engine. Thanks to Car and Driver, we're able to get a closer look via a set of spy shots.
      We'll begin with the facelift. Ford has done a decent job with the camouflage, but we can pick out a new grille design that seems to mimic the F-Series super duty. Expect new headlights, along with new taillights and wheel choices.
      We have reported previously on the venturi exhaust and a video with the noises of a diesel engine . Now we have more proof of the diesel engine. Thanks to a Ford engineer leaving the hood open, we have gotten our first clear look at the diesel engine. We can't tell much about the engine aside from there being a mess of hoses and wires. You might be asking how we know this is a diesel. Two key items give it away; a diesel fuel inlet behind the fuel filler door and a sign taped inside saying"Diesel Fuel Only!"
      Everyone believes the diesel engine in question is a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 that is used in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport TD6 models. This engine produces 254 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
