For 2006, Canyon delivers a new ZQ8 sport suspension package, SLT trim on
Extended and Crew Cab models, the GM Passenger Sensing (air bag) System for
front seat passengers and a host of new interior and exterior colors.
New ZQ8 Sport Suspension
Canyon also delivers enhanced ride and handling for 2006 via the new, available
ZQ8 sport suspension. The ZQ8 sport suspension features a 22-mm rear stabilizer
bar, high-pressure monotube shocks, quick-ratio power steering and
rubber/urethane jounce bumpers. For an even sportier look, ZQ8-equipped Canyon
models have a two-inch lower ride height than those equipped with the base Z85
suspension, ride on 17-inch aluminum wheels shod with 235/50
R17 tires and feature body-colored wheel flares.
Canyon’s Professional Grade persona begins with its proven ladder-type frame for
a rugged, rigid chassis. Rear-drive models have a standard independent coil
spring front suspension and a live, semi-elliptic two-stage multileaf rear
suspension, while four-wheel drive and High-Stance Off-Road models feature a
standard independent torsion bar suspension. On all models, 28-mm front
stabilizer bars are standard.
New SLT Package available on Extended and Crew Cab
For 2006, Canyon Extended Cab and Crew Cab customers who opt for the SLT package
will be able to equip their vehicle with a host of performance, comfort and
convenience features. In both models, the SLT package includes: the Vortec 3500
3.5L inline five-cylinder engine; leather bucket seating surfaces – including
heated seats for the driver and front passenger; four-wheel drive; 8-way power
adjustment for the driver’s seat and 6-way power adjustment for the front
passenger seat; temperature and compass displays on the interior rearview
mirror; rear sliding window; recovery hooks; fog lamps and a 6-disc CD changer.
Canyon Crew Cab models also add molded carpeted floor mats and brushed aluminum
side steps – the latter is exclusive to Z71-equipped models.
Canyon offers two new interior colors for 2006: Medium Pewter vinyl and Light
Cashmere leather seating surfaces. ...GMC Canyon Crew Cab 4WD: Page 2
