Intended for utilitarian use, the 2008 GMC Canyon Work Truck is minimally outfitted. A 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 engine and 5-speed manual transmission deliver 190 ft-lbs of torque in this rear-wheel drive mid-size pickup. A 4-speed automatic is optional, along with the 242-hp, 3.7-liter I5 engine. The 2008 Canyon Work Truck sits on 15-inch wheels with all-season tires and rides on an independent front and live axle rear suspension. It features a 6-foot pickup bed with tie-downs and a light. The tailgate opens out 90 degrees or at a 55 degree angle so you can rest long objects on top of the wheelwells. There is one row of seats for two passengers, which is available as either a bench or reclining bucket seats.
4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front airbags with a passenger sensor, side impact door beams, automatic headlights, and a tire monitor earn four and five stars in crash tests. Side curtain airbags, foglights, OnStar, traction control, and a locking rear differential can be added. Though just a work truck, the 2008 Canyon WT does come with cruise control, tilt steering, air conditioning, a radio, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, and front power outlets. Vinyl upholstery is standard. A CD/MP3 player and cloth seats are available. The 2008 Canyon WT rides smoothly and gets decent 17/24 mpg, but its I4 engine can only tow 4000 pounds.

The Regular Cab version of the rear-wheel drive 2008 GMC Canyon SL comes with one row of 60/40 split-folding seats, to fit two to three passengers. The 6-foot pickup bed is deeper than those of other mid-size pickup competitors, and comes with tie-downs and a tailgate that folds out to both 55 and 90 degrees. A sliding rear window provides access from the cab. A 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 and 5-speed manual is the standard powertrain, though a 4-speed automatic can be substituted. So can a 3.7-liter, 242-hp DOHC I5. Towing power maxes at 4000 pounds, and gas mileage is a pretty good 17/24 mpg. The 2008 Canyon SL uses 15-inch wheels with all-season tires.
Moving up to the SL adds new standard foglights to the safety features, which include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front airbags, side impact door beams, a tire monitor, automatic headlights, and OnStar. The pickup gets four and five stars in front crash tests. Side curtain airbags, a locking rear differential, and traction control can be added. The interior comfort is limited, but the 2008 Canyon SL does come with cloth seats, a leather steering wheel, and a trip computer. Air conditioning, a radio, tilt steering, cruise control, intermittent wipers, and a tachometer are also standard. On the outside, chrome bumpers dress the truck up. The limited options include a CD/MP3 player, satellite radio, alloy wheels, and privacy glass.

The 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-1 is a rear-wheel drive, mid-sized pickup in the Regular Cab configuration. This means two doors and only a front seat, accompanied by a 6-foot bed. The bed comes with tie-downs, two-tier storage, and a tailgate that folds flat or at a 55-degree angle. A sliding rear window separates it from the cabin.
There is not much difference stepping up from the SL, but the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 does feature a CD/MP3 player with radio data, alloy wheels, and upgraded cloth upholstery. Also standard are intermittent wipers, a trip computer, leather steering wheel, tilt steering, a tachometer, and air conditioning. More options are available for the SLE-1, including a power package (windows, locks, and mirrors in the SLE-2 package), remote entry, and a 6-CD changer. Satellite radio is another extra.
The pickup rides on a Z85 heavy-duty front independent and solid live axle rear suspension, utilizing 15-inch wheels with all-season tires and chrome bumpers. Dual front airbags with passenger deactivation are standard, and side curtain bags for both rows are optional. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes feature electronic brakeforce distribution, and a tire monitor, halogen lamps, automatic headlights, and foglights are all standard. The 2008 Canyon SLE-1 earns four and five stars in crash tests. An auto-dimming rearview mirror is an added option with the SLE-1, along with traction control and a rear locking differential. Under the hood is a 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4, but a 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5 is available. A 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic are the transmission options. The powertrain can tow 4000 pounds and gets around 17/24 mpg.

Adding 15 more inches in length and wheelbase, the 2008 GMC Canyon Work Truck Extended can offer a second row of jump seats, though these are more suited for children or pets than adults. Access to the second row is through rear three-quarter, reverse-hinged doors. Though it has the added row, the extra inches means the mid-size pickup truck's bed remains 6 feet long. This rear-wheel drive model comes standard with a 185-hp, 2.9-liter I4 or optional 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5. A 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic are the available transmissions. It rides on 15-inch wheels with all-season tires and a front independent and solid live axle rear suspension.
Standard safety features include side impact door beams, dual front airbags with passenger sensors, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, automatic headlights, and a tire monitor. Side curtain airbags for both rows, OnStar, foglights, a locking rear differential, and traction control can be added. Cruise control, tilt steering, power steering, intermittent wipers, a radio, air conditioning, and a tachometer represent the standard features. Cupholders and power outlets are only up front. The bed comes with tie-downs and a tailgate that folds out to either 55 or 90 degrees, offering loading versatility. Interior options on the 2008 Canyon Work Truck Extended are limited to cloth seats and a CD/MP3 player.

Though it comes standard with the same 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 and choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic as the Regular Cab, the 2008 GMC Canyon SL Extended Cab adds 15 inches to the wheelbase, to add two jump seats in the back. With the optional 3.7-liter, 242-hp DOHC I5, this rear-wheel drive mid-sized pickup can tow 5500 pounds. The front row bench splits 60/40, while access to the rear seats is through three-quarter, reverse-hinged rear doors.
The 2008 Canyon SL Extended earns top safety ratings due to standard 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, side impact door beams, and dual front airbags with passenger deactivation. Also included are new foglights, OnStar, a tire monitor, 15-inch wheels with all-season tires, and automatic headlights. A locking rear differential and side curtain airbags for both rows are optional. Still more of a consumer utility truck than a family vehicle, the 2008 Canyon SL Extended's upgrades include a leather steering wheel, a trip computer, and cloth seats. Already standard are cruise control, power steering, a tilt steering wheel, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, a radio, and air conditioning. Cupholders and power outlets reside only up front.
The pickup bed is 6-feet long, with deep sides, tie-downs, and a fold-down tailgate that stays locked in either a 90 degree or 55 degree position (to rest objects on the wheelwell). Options to the 2008 Canyon SL Extended include a CD/MP3 player, satellite radio, a sunroof, and alloy wheels.

Extended stands for 15 extra inches in the wheelbase of the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-2 Extended Cab. This accommodates a second row of seats, albeit undersized, while maintaining the 6-foot bed in this rear-wheel drive pickup. Though it's a four-door, the rear doors are three-quarter size and reverse-hinged. The bigger size means the 2008 Canyon SLE-2 Extended can tow up to 5500 pounds with the optional trailer wiring. Tow hooks are standard, along with tie-downs and a folding tailgate.
Under the hood is a standard 3.7-liter DOHC I5 matched to a 4-speed automatic, delivering 242-hp and 242 ft-lbs of torque. Fuel economy is around 17/24 mpg. Safety features include 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, side impact beams, and dual front airbags. With the Extended trims, 18-inch wheels are optional. One year of OnStar is newly standard, along with a tire monitor, automatic headlights, foglights, and halogen lamps. Side curtain airbags for both rows cost extra. An auto-dimming rearview mirror, traction control, and a locking rear differential are also available.
The bed is separated from the cabin by a sliding rear window. There are only two cupholders up front, along with two power outlets. Remote entry, power windows, locks, and mirrors, and cruise control are standard conveniences in the 2008 Canyon SLE-2 Extended. Also included are intermittent wipers, a CD/MP3 player with radio data, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, tilt steering, a trip computer, tachometer, and tinted glass. With the Extended version, there are now cupholders for both rows of seats. The Extended Cab offers more options than the Regular, such as a sunroof. Also offered are satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, and an off-road suspension.

How much luxury does a pickup truck need? The 2008 GMC Canyon SLT Extended Cab answers that question with leather upholstery, heated front seats, and an 8-way power driver's and 6-way power passenger's seat. The SLT also adds a temperature display and compass. These standard features are in addition to a full power setup, power-folding mirrors, remote entry, cruise control, intermittent wipers, front and rear cupholders, a leather steering wheel, chrome accents, and a trip computer.
The rear-wheel drive mid-sized pickup has a 126-inch wheelbase (thus, the Extended), though the second row barely fits normal-sized adults and is only accessed through small reverse-hinged rear doors. The 6-foot pickup bed is separated by a sliding window and comes with tie-downs and tow hooks. The folding tailgate can be positioned flat or at a 55-degree angle. Trailer wiring is optional, for a 5500-pound towing capacity.
A 3.7-liter, 242-hp DOHC I5 and 4-speed automatic is the only powertrain available in the 2008 Canyon SLT Extended Cab, which rides on either 15-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels. Dual front airbags, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, and side impact door beams earn top marks in crash tests. The SLT adds a standard auto-dimming rearview mirror. Also included are automatic headlights, foglights, halogen lamps, a tire monitor, and OnStar. Traction control can be added, along with side curtain airbags and a locking rear differential. Other creature comfort options include a sunroof, 6-CD changer, satellite radio, and an off-road suspension.

Equipped with low-range gearing, the 2008 GMC Canyon Work Truck 4WD can be taken off-road, but should not be engaged on dry pavement. The part-time system, controlled by the driver works even better with the optional Z71 off-road package that features a stiffer suspension. A 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 engine rates 190 ft-lbs of torque and is paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. A 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5 is optional. The Regular cab Work Truck is a two-door trim with one row of 60/40 split bench seats, which can be replaced with bucket seats. The 6-foot bed comes with tie-downs and a tailgate that can fold out into two positions, offering two-tier loading for longer objects.
Front cupholders, cruise control, tilt steering, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, air conditioning, and a radio are all standard on the 2008 Canyon Work Truck 4WD. Safety features earn top ratings and include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front airbags, automatic headlights, a tire monitor, and side impact door beams. Paying a little extra gets you side curtain airbags, foglights, traction control, a locking rear differential, and OnStar service. Creature comfort options include a CD/MP3 player and cloth seats. Lacking a V6, the 2008 Canyon Work Truck 4WD can only tow 4000 pounds, but it does get 17/24 mpg.

With a wheelbase lengthened from 111 to 126 inches, the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-1 Extended Cab can offer a second row of small jump seats, accessed through smaller reverse-hinged rear doors. Though not necessarily family-friendly, it does offer more versatility. Engine choices in this rear-wheel drive pickup range from a standard 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 to a 3.7-liter 242-hp I5, paired with a 5-speed manual (I4 only) or 4-speed automatic. Both 15 or 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires are available.
In Extended Cab form, the SLE-1 doesn't have the power features of the Crew Cab, but does come with cruise control, a CD/MP3 player with radio data, OnStar, a trip computer, and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Intermittent wipers, a tachometer, tilt steering, and front power outlets and cupholders are also standard. Paying for options will get you power features, including a 6-way power front seat. Heated leather upholstery, a sunroof, satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, upgraded cloth seats, and privacy glass are also available. The exterior chrome bumpers can be complemented by wheel flares and body-side molding. The 6-foot pickup bed features tie-downs and tow hooks, and two-tier storage, with a tailgate that folds and locks to either 55 or 90 degrees.
In terms of safety, the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 Extended Cab offers dual front airbags, side impact doors beams, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, drive-by-wire throttle control, automatic headlights, foglights, a tire monitor, and halogen lamps. An auto-dimming rearview mirror is available, along with traction control, a locking rear differential, and side curtain airbags for both rows.

Part-time 4WD features low-range gearing in the 2008 GMC Canyon SL 4WD, which means it can be taken off-road, but not engaged on dry pavement. An off-road suspension can also be added for more confidence. Power comes from a 185-hp, 2.9-liter DOHC I4 that delivers 190 ft-lbs of torque, matched to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. For more heft, you can add a 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5. The front independent and solid live axle rear suspension rides on 15-inch wheels with all-season tires. Electronic throttle control and rack and pinion steering smooth out the ride.
4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front airbags with passenger deactivation, automatic headlights, side impact door beams, a tire monitor, and daytime running lights are joined by newly standard foglights and OnStar in the 2008 Canyon SL 4WD. Side curtain bags and a locking rear differential are optional.
The mid-sized pickup is sparsely outfitted, but does do the Work Truck one better by adding cloth seats, leather steering wheel trim, and a trip computer. Power steering, a tilt steering wheel with cruise control, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, a radio, and air conditioning are all standard. There is only one row of seats, a 60/40 folding bench (bucket seats can be substituted), with two cupholders and two power outlets. The 6-foot bed comes with tie-downs. The tailgate folds out nearly flat or at a 55 degree angle, which is the height of the wheelwells. A CD/MP3 player and satellite radio top the options list, which also includes privacy glass, alloy wheels, and tow wiring.

What does the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-2 have that the SLE-1 doesn't? Power locks, windows, and mirrors, and remote entry all come standard in this rear-wheel drive pickup. The Regular Cab version of the SLE-2 seats two in the front split-folding bench seat, which can be replaced by buckets. A front independent and rear solid live axle suspension support the 2008 Canyon SLE-2, which rides on 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires. The SLE-2 also comes standard with more horsepower, in the form of a 242-hp, 3.7-liter DOHC I5, matched only with a 4-speed automatic.
Along with the added standard features comes cruise control, intermittent wipers, a CD/MP3 player with radio data, OnStar, a trip computer, tinted glass, a tachometer, and front power outlets. A sliding rear window looks out onto the 6-foot pickup bed. The tailgate folds and locks in two positions for two-tier storage. Tie-downs and tow hooks are standard, and trailer wiring can be added. Towing capacity hits 4000 pounds in the 2008 Canyon SLE-2.
Safety features are first-rate and include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, side impact door beams, and dual front airbags. Side curtain bags are optional. Automatic headlights, foglights, halogen lamps, a tire monitor, and daytime running lights help clear the road ahead. Other safety add-ons are traction control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a locking rear differential.

In the Regular Cab formation, the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-1 4WD offers only one row of seats, a 60/40 split bench (buckets are available) and two doors. A 6-foot pickup bed is separated from the cabin by a sliding rear window. Tie-downs are standard, and with optional trailer wiring the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 4WD can tow 4000 pounds. A fold-down tailgate and two-tier storage are handy features. The SLE-1 4WD boosts off-road performance by adding the part-time 4WD system with low-range gearing and automatic locking hubs. Skid plates, 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, and an optional locking rear differential add extra confidence. A Z71 off-road suspension is also available, replacing the heavy-duty Z85.
A 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 delivers 190 ft-lbs of torque, paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Electronic throttle control is standard. A more powerful 242-hp, 3.7-liter I5 is optional, matched only to the automatic. Creature comfort upgrades in the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 4WD include high-grade cloth upholstery, a CD/MP3 player with radio data, and alloy wheels. These join standard leather trim, a trip computer, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, and air conditioning. The front seat features cupholders and two power outlets. Options add power features, remote entry, satellite radio, and a 6-CD changer.
Chrome bumpers and trim stylize the exterior of this mid-sized pickup. Safety features include dual front airbags, side impact door beams, and 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes. Foglights, halogen lamps, automatic headlights, OnStar, and a tire monitor also help earn top marks in safety tests. Traction control is not offered in the 4WD SLE-1, but you can add side curtain airbags and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

For those needing a little more surefootedness in tricky driving situations or off-road capability, the 2008 GMC Canyon Work Truck Extended 4WD features low-range gearing and automatic locking hubs with its part-time 4WD system. An available off-road package makes adjustments to the suspension.
A 2.9-liter, 185-hp I4 delivers 190 ft-lbs of torque and is matched to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. With the optional tow package, the 2008 Canyon Work Truck Extended 4WD can tow up to 5500 pounds. A 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5 that gets 242 ft-lbs of torque is available. The pickup features a 6-foot bed with high sides for greater depth, and a tailgate that folds out and locks into two positions to create a two-tier storage system. Tie-downs are standard.
Riding on 15-inch wheels with all-season tires, the 2008 Canyon Work Truck Extended 4WD earns its four and five-star safety ratings with standard 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front airbags, a tire monitor, automatic headlights, and daytime running lights. Side curtain airbags for both rows are optional, along with foglights, OnStar, and traction control. The longer 126-inch wheelbase means a second row of jump seats with reverse-hinged rear doors. Standard features include intermittent wipers, air conditioning, a radio, cruise control, tilt steering, front power outlets and cupholders, and a tachometer. You can add a CD player with MP3 compatibility and cloth upholstery.

Adding the part-time 4WD system to the 3008 GMC Canyon SL Extended Cab 4WD lets you take this mid-sized pickup off-road, thanks to low-range gearing. An optional Z71 Off-Road package makes suspension adjustments for even better handling. Power comes from a 2.9-liter DOHC I4 that gets 185-hp and 190 ft-lbs of torque. A 3.7-liter I5 ups both those numbers to 242. A 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic are the only transmission choices. The 2008 Canyon SL Extended 4WD rides on 15-inch wheels with all-season tires. Alloy wheels are optional.
The pickup seats four in two rows, though the second row is more like jump seats, with access through small reverse-hinged rear side doors. A sliding rear window opens onto the 6-foot pickup bed that comes with tie-downs. The tailgate folds and locks into two positions for two-tier storage. Cruise control, tilt steering, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, power steering, a radio, and air conditioning are carryovers from the work truck, and the 2008 Canyon SL Extended 4WD adds chrome bumpers, cloth upholstery, a leather steering wheel, OnStar, and a trip computer. The front bench split-folds 60/40. A CD/MP3 player can be added, along with satellite radio, privacy glass, wheel flares, and tow wiring, to haul up to 5500 pounds. As part of the Sun and Sound Package, a sunroof is also available.
Safety features include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front airbags, side impact door beams, automatic headlights, a tire monitor, foglights, and daytime running lights. Side curtain airbags, a locking rear differential, and traction control cost extra. Fuel economy ranks around 17/24 mpg.

Moving up to the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-2 Crew Cab version of this rear-wheel drive mid-sized pickup gets you extra room for two adults in the backseat, four regular-sized doors, but a shorter 5-foot bed. The second row bench also split-folds for more versatility. Combining family-friendly and utilitarian features, the 2008 Canyon SLE-2 Crew Cab can tow up to 5500 pounds with the optional trailer wiring. Tow hooks are included, along with tie-downs, and the folding tailgate can also be removed in the Crew Cab. Two-tier storage in the bed is a nice feature, thanks to a tailgate that folds flat or at wheelwell level.
A 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5 is standard, paired only with a 4-speed automatic. Fuel economy rates around 17/24 mpg. Using a heavy-duty suspension and 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, the 2008 Canyon SLE-2 Crew Cab can be outfitted with an off-road suspension and larger 18-inch alloy wheels. Earning four and five stars in crash tests, the pickup features 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front airbags, side impact door beams, OnStar, foglights, automatic headlights with halogen lamps, and a tire monitor. Safety options include side curtain airbags for both rows, traction control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a locking rear differential.
Chrome decorates the bumpers and is carried over into the interior trim, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Larger wheel flares and body-side molding can be added to the exterior. Power locks, windows, and mirrors, and remote entry are standard, along with cruise control, a CD/MP3 player, intermittent wipers, and a trip computer. Also included are a tachometer, tilt steering, tinted glass, front and rear cupholders, and front power outlets. A power sunroof is a nice, if not practical, option, and both a 6-CD changer and satellite radio will keep riders entertained whether you're on a road trip or a work detail.

Moving up to the 2008 GMC Canyon SLT Crew Cab, the top of the line for this mid-sized pickup, gets you four full-size doors and two rows of seats. The extra legroom in the rear and the split-folding bench seat are possible because the bed length has been shortened to five feet. The rear-wheel drive 2008 Canyon SLT Crew Cab is the most luxurious of the bunch, with leather upholstery, heated front seats, and power front seats (8-way driver, 6-way passenger). Another Crew Cab upgrade is the removable tailgate, which also folds flat and at an angle level with the wheelwells, for two-tier storage. Tow hooks and tie-downs are standard, but trailer wiring costs extra.
A 3.7-liter, 242-hp DOCH I5 gets 242 ft-lbs of torque and is paired with a 4-speed automatic with overdrive.The 17/24 mpg is adequate for a pickup of this size. A heavy-dutry suspension can be replaced with an off-road suspension package. 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, dual front airbags, side impact beams, and 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes earn the highest ratings in crash tests. Other nice features include OnStar, automatic headlights, a tire monitor, auto-dimming rearview mirror, foglights, and halogen lamps. Traction control is optional in the rear-wheel drive Canyons. Also available are side curtain airbags and a locking rear differential. Body-side molding and wheel flares can be added to the exterior, which is dressed up in chrome on the grille and bumpers.
Front and rear cupholders are only the beginning of the interior bells and whistles. Cruise control, a CD/MP3 player, full power features, intermittent wipers, trip computer, temperature display and compass, and leather steering wheel are all standard. The chrome theme is carried over to the instrument panel. Tilt steering, a tachometer, and front power outlets are also included. A sunroof is optional, along with one year of satellite radio and a 6-CD changer.

Crew Cabs in the 2008 GMC Canyon lineup only come in SLE trims, and the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 Crew Cab offers more standard features, such as power locks, windows, and mirrors, remote entry, and cruise control. More family than work-oriented, the rear-wheel drive mid-sized pickup extends the wheelbase to 126 inches, but comes with a smaller 5-foot pickup bed in order to provide more interior room. The 2008 Canyon SLE-1 Crew Cab has four regular-sized doors and two rows of seats (front bucket and rear split-folding bench). As such, it increases the number of cupholders to four in both front and back.
A 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 is standard, with the option to substitute a 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5. A 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic are the transmission choices. The pickup rides on a Z85 heavy-duty front independent and rear live axle suspension, but an off-road suspension package can be added. Dual front airbags are standard, and side curtain airbags for both rows are optional. Other safety features include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, side impact door beams, halogen lamps, foglights, automatic headlights, a tire monitor, 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, and OnStar. Traction control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a rear locking differential are optional. The tailgate in the pickup bed folds and can also be removed in the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 Crew Cab. Tie-downs are standard.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel, tilt steering, a CD/MP3 player with radio data, a trip computer, tachometer, intermittent wipers, front power outlets, and chrome bumpers are also standard. Upgrading to the Crew Cab version of the SLE-1 adds a sunroof option as part of the Sun and Sound package. Other options include SLT features, such a heated leather seats and a 6-way power driver's seat, satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, a compass and temperature display, privacy glass, and body-side molding and wheel flares.

The part-time 4WD system in the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-2 Extended Cab 4WD offers high and low-range gearing and automatic locking hubs, giving drivers the ability to go off-road in this mid-sized pickup. A Z85 heavy-duty suspension sis standard and adequate for such a ride, but a Z71 off-road suspension package can be added for more stability in such situations. The SLE-2 Extended 4WD features a longer wheelbase to allow a second row of jump seats, accessed through small reverse-hinged rear doors. The 6-foot pickup bed remains, separated by a sliding rear window. Tie-downs are standard, along with a tailgate that folds out and locks in two positions. Tow hooks are also standard, and trailer wiring can be added, to tow up to 5500 pounds.
Moving up to the SLE-2 means a more powerful engine, a 3.7-liter DOHC I5 that boasts 242-hp. A 4-speed automatic is the only transmission. The 208 Canyon SLE-2 Extended Cab 4WD rides on 15-inch alloy wheels, though 18-inch can be substituted. 4-wheel ABS and disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front airbags, and side impact door beams earn high marks in side impact tests. Automatic headlights, foglights, halogen lamps, a tire monitor, and OnStar are also part of the package. Paying a little extra gets you side curtain airbags for both rows, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a locking rear differential. Traction control is not an option for the 4WD trims.
A full power setup includes remote entry in the 2008 Canyon SLE-2 Extended Cab 4WD. Other nice standard features for a pickup are cruise control and a CD/MP3 player with radio data. Intermittent wipers, tilt steering, a trip computer, a tachometer, tinted windows, chrome interior trim, a leather steering wheel, front and rear cupholders, and front power outlets are also included. A satellite radio option is offered as a standalone or bundled with a power sunroof in the Sun and Sound package. Other options include a 6-CD changer, wider wheel flares, and body side molding.

The 2008 GMC Canyon SLT Extended Cab 4WD adds a part-time 4WD system with a standard locking rear differential. With high and low-range gearing, the mid-sized pickup can be taken off-road for maximum versatility. A heavy-duty Z85 front independent and solid live axle rear suspension provides a sturdy feel, but can be replaced with a specific Z71 off-road suspension. The 4WD comes only with 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires. A 3.7-liter, 242-hp DOHC I5 and 4-speed automatic provide the power, 242 ft-lbs of torque, and a 5500-pound towing capacity.
Added safety and security comes in the form of 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front airbags, side impact door beams, OnStar, and a tire monitor. Side curtain airbags for both rows are optional. The 2008 Canyon SLT Extended 4WD upgrades to an auto-dimming rearview mirror, along with automatic headlights, foglights, and halogen lamps. The Extended models add a second row of small seats and rear doors, albeit ones smaller than regular size. The 6-foot pickup bed features two-tier storage, high side walls, tie-downs, and tow hooks. The tailgate folds and locks in two positions.
An 8-way power driver's seat and 6-way power passenger seat add extra comfort for pickup passengers in the 2008 Canyon SLT Extended 4WD. Added luxury in the SLT is provided by heated leather seats. Other standard features include cruise control, remote entry, a full power setup (locks, windows, mirrors), a trip computer, intermittent wipers, front and rear cupholders, front power outlets, a leather steering wheel, chrome accents, and a temperature display and compass. A CD/MP3 player with radio data can be replaced with a 6-CD changer or supplemented with optional satellite radio. Other options include a sunroof. On the outside, chrome bumpers add some flashy style, and body-side moldings and larger wheel flares can be added.

A cross between a mid-sized work truck and family hauler, the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-1 Extended Cab 4WD offers more versatility with its part-time 4WD system. Its low-range gearing can be taken off-road, and if you substitute the Z71 off-road suspension for the regular Z85 heavy-duty one, you'll get an even more surefooted ride off-pavement. A choice of 15 or 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires is available, along with two different engines -- a 2.9-liter I4 that delivers 185-hp and 190 ft-lbs of torque, or a 3.7-liter I5 with 242-hp and 242 ft-lbs. Transmissions include a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Fuel mileage sits around 17/24 mpg.
With 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, and dual front airbags, the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 Extended Cab 4WD earns top safety marks. Automatic headlights, halogen lamps, foglights, side impact door beams, a tire monitor, and OnStar are also standard. Side curtain airbags, a locking rear differential, skid plates, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are optional, but traction control is not offered. The pickup features two rows, with reverse-hinged small rear doors. The 6-foot pickup bed features tow hooks, tie-downs, a fold-down tailgate, and two-tier storage. Chrome bumpers add to the stylish, yet muscular look, and wheel flares can be added.
Interior amenities include cruise control, a CD/MP3 player, leather steering wheel, tilt steering, intermittent wipers, a trip computer, and a tachometer. Though it has two rows, power outlets and cupholders remain up front only. There are plenty of enhanced options, such as full power features, remote entry, a power driver's seat, and heated leather seats. A sunroof is bundled with satellite radio and a 6-CD changer in the Sun and Sound Package.

The 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-2 4WD rides on a Z85 heavy-duty front independent and solid live axle rear suspension, along with 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires. This mid-size pickup gets its power from a 3.7-liter I5 that delivers 242-hp and 242 ft-lbs of torque. A 4-speed automatic is the only transmission. The part-time 4WD system features high and low-range gearing for off-road confidence, and an optional off-road suspension package can be added, along with a locking rear differential. There is no traction control option in the 4WD Canyons.
As a Regular Cab model, the 2008 Canyon SLE-2 4WD has two doors and seats two people on a split-folding front bench. Cupholder and power outlets reside up front, and the SLE-2 adds luxuries such as full power features and remote entry. This is in addition to cruise control, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, a CD/MP3 player, and a trip computer. A 6-CD changer and satellite radio are optional. The pickup bed is 6 feet long and features two-tier storage and a tailgate that folds both flat and at an angle level with the wheelwells. Tow hooks are standard, but trailer wiring costs extra (for a towing capacity around 4000 pounds).
The 2008 Canyon SLE-2 4WD ranks high in safety, due to standard 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, side impact door beams, and dual front airbags. OnStar, automatic headlights with halogen lamps, a tire monitor, foglights, and daytime running lights are also standard. Add-ons include side curtain airbags and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Not recommended for use on dry pavement, the part-time 4WD system in the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-2 Crew Cab 4WD works best off-road with its combination of high and low-range gearing. You can boost its capability with an optional off-road Z71 suspension, which replaces the heavy-duty Z85 front independent and rear solid live axle suspension.
The Crew Cab features a shorter 5-foot bed to make room for four full-size doors and a second row split-folding bench. A rear sliding window is standard, and the bed offers tie-downs, tow-hooks, and a removable tailgate that folds and locks in two positions. The 2008 Canyon SLE-2 Crew Cab 4WD can tow nearly 5500 pounds with the optional trailer wiring. Side impact door beams, dual front airbags with passenger deactivation, and 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes are all standard. So are 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires and a tire monitor. OnStar, automatic headlights, foglights, and halogen lamps contribute to this mid-sized pickup's high four and five-star safety ratings. Side curtain airbags for both rows, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a rear locking differential are available.
Power comes from a 3.7-liter, 242-hp DOHC I5 and 4-speed automatic, with 242 ft-lbs of torque. A full power setup, CD/MP3 player, cruise control, intermittent wipers, a leather steering wheel, chrome interior accents, remote entry, trip computer, tachometer, and front and rear cupholders are all standard in this family-oriented pickup. Satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, and a sunroof are standalone options that can be bundled in the Sun and Sound Package.

For a good combination of luxury, interior space for the family, and sturdy work truck, the 2008 GMC Canyon SLT Crew Cab 4WD might fit the bill for the average consumer. The 4WD system comes with high and low-range gearing, allowing off-road performance. Automatic locking hubs and a locking rear differential are also standard, while a Z71 off-road suspension can be added. A 242-hp, 3.7-liter DOHC I5 gets 242 ft-lbs of torque, but is only offered with a 4-speed automatic (with overdrive).
Being a Crew Cab means two rows of regular-sized seats, but only a 5-foot pickup bed. Tie-downs, tow hooks, two-tier storage capability, and a folding and removable tailgate are all standard. An optional trailer hitch allows you to tow up to 5500 pounds. A sliding rear window accesses the cab. The rear bench split-folds. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front airbags, side impact beams, and 15-inch wheels with all-season tires help keep passengers safe. (The 2008 Canyon SLT Crew Cab 4WD earns four and five stars in safety tests). Other features include OnStar, automatic headlights, halogen lamps, a tire monitor, and foglights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Side curtain airbags for both rows are optional.
The top-end SLT might stand for Super Luxurious Trimmings, as the 2008 Canyon SLT Crew Cab 4WD comes with heated front seats, leather upholstery, and an 8-way power driver's seat and 6-way passenger seat. A full power setup includes windows, locks, mirrors, and remote entry. Also standard is cruise control, intermittent wipers, a trip computer, leather steering wheel trim, chrome accents, a temperature display and compass, and a CD/MP3 player with radio data. Front and rear cupholders accommodate passengers, and there are also two power outlets up front. Options add a sunroof, satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, larger wheel flares, and body-side moldings.

The part-time 4WD system in the 2008 GMC Canyon SLE-1 Crew Cab 4WD features high and low-range gearing, which can't be used on dry roads, but works effectively off-road. Though the heavy-duty Z85 front independent and solid live axle rear suspension is standard, an off-road Z71 suspension can be added for a firmer ride. 15-inch alloy-wheels with all-season tires keep this mid-sized pickup on the road, and in the Crew Cab form it seats four in two rows with four full-size doors. The rear bench split-folds, and a sliding rear window opens onto the 5-foot pickup bed that comes with tie-downs and a removable tailgate.
With the standard 2.9-liter, 185-hp DOHC I4 engine, the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 Crew Cab 4WD can tow up to 5500 pounds. It gets 190 ft-lbs of torque and is paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. A 3.7-liter, 242-hp I5 is optional. Four and five-star safety features include side impact door beams, dual front airbags with passenger deactivation, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, automatic headlights, foglights, halogen lamps, and a tire monitor. One free year of OnStar is included. Side curtain airbags for both rows, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a locking rear differential cost extra. Traction control does not come with the 4WD Canyons.
Upgrading from the SL, the 2008 Canyon SLE-1 Crew Cab 4WD adds full power features, remote entry, and cruise control. It also adds rear cupholders. Intermittent wipers, a CD/MP3 player, tilt steering, leather wheel trim, a trip computer, a tachometer, and chrome bumpers are all standard. Wheel flares are optional. A Sun and Sound package adds a 6-CD changer, satellite radio, and a sunroof. Luxury features such as heated leather seats and a power driver's seat are another nice add-on. Other options include a compass, a temperature display, and privacy glass.
