Drive elevation edition and the canyon got a slight refresh for 2021, which you could tell mostly by the front end. It’S got that 3.6 liter v6 made it to an eight speed automatic transmission, and that allows it to get 308 horsepower, and this one comes in summit white on gray cloth and with the elevation edition you have the blacked out grille, then the matte black bottom bumper. There and then, Natuurlijk, with your elevation edition, you also get your blacked out, 18 inch aluminum wheels and then your elevation badging there. So you’ve got a power driver seat to move the seat back forth up and down, and then you’ve got this right here to adjust the back power door, locks power, windows, there’s a rear seat i’m gon na get in here i’ve got the seat, pushed back a Little far back, but not the best room, i mean, if you’re wanting that kind of room you’re going to want to go up to a sierra, but for two people that are probably about six feet, maybe um a little under that you could fit two of those Size, people behind each other, Geen probleem, there’s your passenger seat, which is all manual there now we’re going to check under the hood and take a look at that v6 and there’s that 3.6 liter direct injection v6, zoals ik al zei, get your 308 horsepower so you’ve got. Am fm xm and bluetooth audio along with apple carplay and android, auto there’s, your backup camera, and then you could just have your lines based on whether you’re backing up with or without a trailer you’ve got your climate controls.
We’Ve also got a little tow haul mode. Hier, there’s your shifter and your center storage decent and then you’ve got your glove box area here with your owner’s manuals. Cruise controls you’ve got your headlight controls down there and there is your gauge cluster, which you can toggle with this here scroll up and down. Then you hit the menu button and you can go over from trip views, vehicle views or economy views and that kind of shows your fuel mileage and we’ll. Keep that on for the test, drive and that’s exactly what we’re about to do. Volgende, with the 2021 gmc canyon elevation edition – and here we go on our test – drive the 21 canyon elevation edition, decent pickup and smooth shifts so far. Breaking is good, though i like throttle response coming out of the corners. The gas pedal isn’t too heavy and it’s kind of got a a sweet spot right where i like it in terms of, if you give it a certain amount of throttle, it shifts if you don’t, it’ll kind of stay where it is, and the ride isn’t smooth, Like butter, but it isn’t bad at all, especially for a truck like this it’s just a bit bouncy, but not choppy i’m gon na cruise at 70 and gas mileage again right at 22 miles a gallon and the ride is very controlled. Even though i’ve got an empty bed and i’m in this truck, it’s still very, very i’m, not having to do too much stays in the lines, Geen probleem, it’s not being blown all over the highway and actually, at this 70 mijl per uur, mark it’s.
Really quite a smooth ride coming down this interstate and cabin noise is very, Heel goed. I don’t hear i hear a little bit of wind noise, but not hearing much from the power train, wat goed is, het is, very smooth Music, En, with this being a 21 canyon, i’m surprised it doesn’t have auto stop. That is something that i would like to see in the midsize pickup market, especially on the colorado’s and the canyons, but i haven’t seen that rod’s still pretty smooth right now, i’m gon na open it up just a little bit with the ac on, and for this Being an eight speed automatic, vrij goed, shifting it’s, nothing like the 10 speed like if you give the 10 speed automatics in the gms you give it throttle, it immediately finds your sweet spot and the shifts are just crisp and lightning quick and the 8 speed isn’t Bad but it’s, nothing like that 10 speed automatic, but this is going to be pretty good for most people, like i said the more you want like. If you want that 10 speed automatic transmission, you want the extra leg room. You want. The extra features you might as well just step up to a sierra so cruising on this back road, doing 46 we’re getting 35 miles to the gallon, but a very, very tame ride. The more i drive it, the more i realize that it’s pretty smooth, zoals ik al zei, especially for a pickup truck, and this, i guess plastic or vinyl, whatever this steering wheel, is made out of that, actually feels pretty good compared to most other vehicles, i’ve driven to And it has a lot to do with the shape.
