Canyon Nightfall Edition Debuts

A resurging pickup truck market is seeing record transaction prices as buyers spend on accessories.

GMC today introduced the 2015 Canyon Nightfall, a blacked-out version of the new 2015 midsize truck. Canyon Nightfall is offered on SLE crew cab models, either 2WD or 4WD, in Onyx Black and will be available in the first quarter of 2015.
