About the GMC Canyon

Good things come in smaller packages, or so GMC would like to think with the GMC Canyon.  This compact pickup took its place in the domestic maker's lineup in 2004 and holds a solid, if not leading, position in the American marketplace.  With 2 and 4 door versions, the Canyon has always offered a lot of trims.  However, the Canyon also lacks the V8 or even V6 that could set it apart in the power department.

As of 2007, the Canyon offered 2 different standard powertrains: a 2.9 L, 185 hp I4 and a 3.7 L, 242 hp I5 with a choice between 4 speed automatic and 5 speed manual transmission.  Gas mileage has generally come out to a solid 17 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway.  Overall, the Canyon presents a good option for those looking for a more rugged frame on their vehicle without needing mind-blowing towing power.
