Spy Shots—GMC Canyon Denali Prototype


The shooters at KGP Photography have gotten their first look at a prototype for the GMC Canyon Denali package, running on a secluded industrial drive near GM's Milford Proving Grounds.

The Canyon prototype's camouflaged front end hides a revised all-mesh grille design that is consistent with GMC's other Denali-trimmed models. Although blacked out on this prototype, the grille will surely be finished in unmistakable brightwork, to set it apart from lesser Canyon variants. The Denali's front bumper is also camouflaged, and it appears that it may be more chrome-intensive, with signs of the reflective stuff stretching across the full bumper's width. The interior also shows signs of camouflaging, suggesting that some interior upgrades could also be in store.

There have been some Internet rumblings that the Denali may also get a unique engine option to give the model more substance, but there is no firm confirmation of the extent of any mechanical upgrades that may distinguish the range-topping Denali from its lower-end Canyon siblings.
