2005 GMC Canyon Overview

The GMC Canyon focused on bells and whistles in 2005. The midsize pickup now offered a sunroof, leather seats in the Extended Cab trims, and the ability to play mp3's in the audio system. Otherwise, you won't find too many differences from the '04 GMC Canyon. The 2005 Canyon offers 24 trims and enables you to choose between 2 standard engines: a 2.8 L, 175 hp I4 powertrain or a 3.5 L, 220 hp I5 with either 4 speed automatic or 5 speed manual transmission, depending on the trim.

On average, expect to get 19 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway. Standard Cab trims have 2 doors and seat 3 while Extended and Crew Cab trims have 4 doors and seat 5-6. As for towing capacity, you'll have the power to tow anywhere from 1500 to 4000 lbs. on average, depending which trim you choose.

Overall, the 2005 GMC Canyon presents a mixed bag to prospective buyers. While you get good gas mileage and an easy-to-use instrument panel, you also don't have a V6 or V8 engine to boost overall power and towing capacity. In addition, the interior design and materials could use some work. Consumers in the market for a pickup truck who don't need the horsepower or pizzazz of the Canyon's counterparts will still appreciate this overall solid domestic vehicle.

    I Was Wondering What Would Cause The Starter To Burn Up Twice?

    I've had to replace the starter on my 2005 GMC Canyon twice after they burn out and its not cheap. Shouldn't the starter be protected by a fuse or circuit breaker?
