A new version of the Buick Enclave, one nine new models coming from the luxury brand and sibling GMC.

Buick and GMC will introduce nine new or significantly updated models over the next 12 months, starting this autumn with completely redone versions of the Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia crossovers.

At GMC, the new additions to the product line will include the rebirth of the Canyon midsized pickup truck, which will be built in Wentzville, Missouri. Last month, General Motors closed an assembly plant in Shreveport, Louisiana that had been producing its smaller trucks. The timing for the all-new GMC Canyon’s launch will be announced later.

The return of the Canyon runs counter to recent industry trends.  Ford, for example, abandoned its long-in-the-tooth Ranger, Chrysler also got out of the midsize truck market.  But, “We believe that introducing a new, agile and efficient mid-size Canyon will meet the needs of many pickup buyers,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick and GMC Marketing.
