2007 GMC

2007 GMC Canyon

The Canyon pickup continues as a boldly styled alternative to smaller compact models and unwieldy full-size trucks. It shares platforms and components with both the Chevrolet Colorado pickup and the Hummer H3 SUV. For 2007, the Canyon line is updated with a more powerful 2.9 liter, 185 horsepower standard engine -- with a new 242 horsepower, 3.7 liter V-8 available optionally. These engines replace last year's 2.8 liter four-cylinder and 3.5 liter V-6 engines. A 125 amp alternator becomes standard on base models, there's a new tire pressure monitoring system and three new exterior colors -- Sport Blue, Midnight Blue Metallic and Sonoma Red Metallic. This truck is available in either rear- or four-wheel drive, in short-wheelbase regular-cab and long-wheelbase extended- and four-door crew-cab versions. Three different suspension packages are offered, along with a long list of options that allows for maximum customization. The optional ZQ8 sport suspension package includes 18-inch aluminum wheels and body-colored wheel flares.

2007 GMC Savana

GMC's full-size, rear-drive van continues for 2007 as the workhorse of the fleet, able to serve as either a commercial hauler, 15-passenger mini-bus, or a powerful tow vehicle. Changes for 2007 include a standard Vortec 5.3 liter, 295 horsepower V-8 engine on 1500 passenger van models -- with E85/flex-fuel capability available. The 4.3 liter, 195 horsepower V-6 continues as the base engine, with a 6 liter, 300 horsepower V-8 topping the range. A 250-horsepower 6.6-liter turbodiesel V-8 is also available on G2500 and G3500 cargo versions. All Savanas come standard with four-speed automatic transmissions and are available in either short- or long-wheelbase lengths and offers a variety of load capacities and engines.

2007 GMC Sierra

GM's full-size 1500 series pick-ups are all new for 2007. The GMC version is called Sierra (Chevy's is the Silverado) and is differentiated from its corporate cousin by exterior and interior styling differences and higher trim content in most models. The '07 Sierra is available in base work truck, SLE (SLE1 and SLE2 models), SLT and top-of-the-line Denali trims, with either two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive. Three cab styles are offered -- regular, extended and crew cab. Three bed lengths are also available -- five foot eight inches, six foot six inches and eight foot. A Z71 off-road package is also offered. Some of the features found on the new Sierra include an available stadium-style rear seat with a 60/40-split design. It can be easily folded up to provide an uninterrupted load floor. Either section of the split seat can also be stowed independently, allowing room for both cargo and a rear-seat passenger. Entry to the rear seat/storage area of extended cab models is eased with new rear access doors that open 170 degrees. The standard engine in the '07 Sierra is a 4.3 liter V-6 rated at 195 horsepower; 4.8 liter (295 horsepower), 5.3 liter (315 horsepower), 6.0 liter (367 horsepower) and 6.2 liter (400 horsepower) V-8s are available. The 6.2 liter V-8 is standard in Denali models and unique to the GMC truck and not offered in its Chevy cousin. The 6.2 liter engine is also teamed exclusively with a new six-speed automatic transmission; the other engines come with four-speed automatics. GM's StabiliTrak stability and traction control system is standard across the line; head/curtain air bags are available on Sierra SLE and SLT models. Rear-seat DVD entertainment system, GPS and heated steering wheel are available on Denali models.

2007 GMC Yukon/XL; Denali/Denali XL

Like the Chevy Tahoe it shares a platform with, GMC's full-size SUVs were completely revised last year; they continue into 2007 with minor changes. The standard Yukon rides on a new 116-inch wheelbase, with an overall length of 202 inches. It has a wider track than the previous-generation Yukon, too. Both design changes were incorporated to improve the stability as well as ride and handling of this large SUV. Extended wheelbase Yukon XL (and Denali XL) models have exterior dimensions similar to the regular models, but are about 14 inches longer in wheelbase and 20 inches longer in overall length. Both Yukon and Yukon XL are available in SLE (cloth trim) and SLT trim (leather appointments), in either two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive configurations. A third-row seat is standard on Yukon XL models and available on Yukon. Denali models share basic specifications but come standard with more luxury features, as well as a standard and unique to this model 6.2 liter, 380 horsepower V-8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. Regular Yukons offer standard 4.8 liter (295 horsepower), 5.3 liter (310 or 320 horsepower) and 6.0 liter (366 horsepower) V-8s with four-speed automatic transmissions. E85/flex-fuel capability is offered with the 5.3 liter V-8 engine. Stabiltrak traction and stability control is standard on all Yukon models; the max tow rating is 7,900-lbs. (Denali models).
