2004 GMC Canyon

Designated as a larger successor to the Sonoma, the Canyon debuted as GMC's new midsize pickup truck in 2004.  Replete with 24 trims and a choice between a 2.8 L, 175 hp I4 engine or a 3.5 L, 220 hp I5 model, the Canyon gave consumers the opportunity to find the right specs based on their personal preferences.   This pickup also offers a choice between 4 speed automatic and 5 speed manual transmission, depending on the trim.

For gas mileage, expect to get 19 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway.  Standard Cab trims typically have 2 doors and seat 3 while Extended and Crew Cab trims have 4 doors and seat 5-6.  Towing capacity ranges from around 2000 lbs. to 4000 lbs.  As for performance, the 2004 GMC Canyon can go from 0-60 mph in almost 10 seconds.

Reviewers have come to the general consensus that the 2004 GMC Canyon looks a bit like a 'good-field, no-hit' baseball player.  With regard to basic tasks and safety features, the Canyon does its job well.  But with the sexier specs like towing capacity and horsepower, this domestic pickup just doesn't measure up.  Pick up the 2004 GMC Canyon if you want the line's general features at the lowest price.
