2018 GMC Sierra Denali

When it comes to trucks for sale in 2018, manufacturers know car buyers are looking for a high tech interior, a futuristic and modern exterior, and the specs and performance that can beat out anything currently on the road.

We’ll take a look at the best new trucks in 2018 who match these criteria and then some. From the 2018 Chevy Silverado to the 2018 GMC Canyon, let’s compare some top-of-the-line trucks for sale that will really get your heart racing. Here are a couple of the new trucks for sale at our Frank Kent Country Dealership that we are excited about!

2018 GMC Canyon

Specs and Performance

The 2018 GMC Canyon is a rugged and sleek new vehicle with the performance capabilities to match. This new truck for sale is available with two engine options: 2.5L 14 DI DOHC engine or the 3.6L V6 DI DOHC VVT engine. With these engine options, the 2018 GMC Canyon can haul up to 7700 lbs, gets 308 horsepower, and a shocking 30 mph on the highway. With the fuel efficiency, power, and performance to handle any terrain and cargo, this is a vehicle that won’t disappoint.

In addition, the 2018 GMC Canyon comes with an available all-terrain package which includes an off-road suspension package, hill descent control, and an automatic locking rear differential. If desert or mountain excursions are on your to-do list, then this is the perfect vehicle to get you there.

Interior and Connectivity

The interior cabin of this truck for sale offers many unique features, including connectivity highlights that will make it hard to ever step out of the driver’s seat. The 2018 GMC Canyon is equipped with a built-in WiFi hotspot, a 7-inch GMC Infotainment system which connects to Bluetooth, navigation, and multiple smart devices. This is a 21st-century machine with USB power outlets, an available MyGMC mobile app to remotely start and lock or unlock your vehicle, as well as a myriad of smart safety features. With comforts and connectivity, this GMC truck is a step above in the 2018 truck market.

The interior aesthetics of the truck cabin offers premium leather seating, classic wood accents, and triple door sealing so your driving experience is quiet, smooth, and comfortable. This is truly the next generation of vehicles.


In order to match the interior and performance capabilities that make up the 2018 GMC Canyon, the exterior on this model is classic, sleek, and aggressive. With smooth lines, prominent grille, and chrome accents, this vehicle is designed with sophistication in mind. This truck for sale is also available with an integrated cornerstep rear bumper, EZ-lift and lower tailgate, as well as available cargo accessories like a bed cargo divider and tiered storage cross rails. We think that the manufacturers thought of everything with this vehicle.

2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD

Specs and Performance

As far as heavy duty trucks for sale go, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is a beast compared to others in its category. This behemoth has two available engines: the Duramax 6.6L Turbo Diesel V8 engine or the Vortec 6.0L V8 engine. With these engine options the maximum horsepower is 445 with a staggering 910 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 23,300 lbs. We don’t think there’s anything that this truck can’t do.

This vehicle also has a number of high tech performance capabilities like a tow/haul mode to reduce shift cycling, StabiliTrak system with trailer sway control which will automatically put on the brakes if swaying is detected, and hill start assist which holds the brake momentarily as you switch to the accelerator to prevent any accidental reversing. This is a truck that has the capability you can rely on.

Interior and Connectivity

Like the 2018 GMC Canyon, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD offers a number of high tech connectivity features. Some of these features include a 7-inch Chevrolet MyLink display, USB ports, a wireless charging pad, and a hands-free calling system. With convenience and technology in mind, this truck for sale can keep up with any of your smart device needs.

The interior of the cabin has a luxurious feel with available leather seating options, wood accents, and a quiet cabin. There’s plenty of legroom in the front and back and can comfortably seat up to five adults. Ideal as a commercial truck, or as a family vehicle that can haul a boat to the lake, this Chevy Truck has us excited for the possibilities.

Safety Features

When it comes to safety, Chevrolet doesn’t mess around. The 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD includes preventative alert measures like forward collision alert, lane departure warning, safety alert driver’s seat, and an electronic stability control system. This truck for sale also includes some active safety measures like front and rear park assist, which will help guide you into your parking space, and an OnStar safety and security plan with an automatic crash response that is standard for the first month you own the vehicle. When it comes to safety, you can trust that you and your family are in good hands.
