General Motors has a new interactive game out to reach potential buyers. Partnering with Google, who created the Pac Man on Google Maps game that used streets as a maze, the automaker is offering a virtual GMC Canyon similar to the Pac Man game. Titled the “Canyon Experience”, it allows users freedom in customizing and driving (virtually) a 2015 Canyon.
In all, users can try driving the Canyon in four different environments (mountains, city, shore, or rural) to see how it handles. For more customization, users can add different options like hills, downhill grades, and trailer stability to see how the Canyon handles. The program then shows the truck handling the terrain and what tech is active.
Using Google Street View, users can drop the Canyon onto any street in the United States. Users can also place the truck right in front of their homes to see how it would look. Included in showing buyers the looks and features are several Easter eggs as well, like parking inside the White House.
The “Canyon Experience” is the first of its kind for any automaker and so far it looks like a hit. Don’t take our word for it. You can try it for yourself here.
