2015-GMC-Canyon-AT-SLT-1-14-13
GMC revealed the 2015 Canyon recently, an all-new midsize truck the company says will redefine the segment and raises the bar for everything from horsepower and efficiency to quietness and refinement. It will be offered with an available 302-horsepower V6 and a Duramax 2.8L turbodiesel in 2016.

When it goes on sale this year, the all-new Canyon will give GMC one of the only three-truck lineups in the industry. It is expected to deliver class-leading capabilities with the brand’s signature refinement – all in an efficiently sized, maneuverable package for customers who want the cargo-hauling and trailering versatility of a truck without the size of a full-size pickup.

FMVSS - LogoSkyjacker has tested the new 2014 GM equipped with the 6-7” lift to prove compliance with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS 126). Through SEMA and the advanced testing by Link Engineering that involves robotic steering and outrigger equipment they have demonstrated compliance with this safety standard and are proud to announce Skyjacker has successfully passed the rigorous FMVSS 126 physical testing.

A series of tests were done to measure the vehicles stability during the FMVSS 126 test. The sensors and monitors kept track of all the vehicles movements and dynamics as it passed down the track. These tests measure with great accuracy how the vehicle reacts after modification and was done to ensure Skyjacker products work in harmony with the Electronic Stability Control (ESC). The ESC is an active control system that affects both vehicle performance and safety to reduce rollovers.
