A host of new equipment includes revised wheels, more standard equipment on SLT and Work Truck trims and an improved Z71 package. Enhanced safety features include standard StabiliTrak stability control and a new braking system. A 5.3-liter V8 can now be ordered on both Extended and Crew Cab models and the sport-oriented ZQ8 suspension package is revived for 2009.
The Canyon is the mirror image of its sister vehicle, the Chevrolet Colorado. GMC adds a few upscale touches to try and distinguish its truck, but for the most part the two are interchangeable at every level. As with the Colorado, the Canyon offers customers a compact truck that is big on value, with a choice of four or five-cylinder engines, two-wheel or four-wheel drive and three configurations: Regular Cab, Extended Cab and Crew Cab. Though not as powerful or roomy as the imports, the Canyon does have its strong points, namely an affordable base price and relatively good fuel economy. Isuzu, however, markets a version of the Canyon known as the i-Series, which carries a far superior standard warranty yet is similarly priced to its GMC and Chevrolet counterparts.
