About GMC Canyon Crew Cab

GMC’s 2017 Canyon pickup truck might be midsize on paper, but its looks, abilities and attitude seem pretty full size to us. A revised 3.6-liter V6 engine improves power and economy, while more trim and option packages give buyers even greater flexibility. With Ford’s Ranger still on the drawing board, the Canyon’s only real non-GM-related competition is the Toyota Tacoma or Nissan Frontier, neither of which can match the Canyon in the areas of towing, payload, engine choices and fuel economy (up to 30 mpg with the diesel options). Available with a choice of 5- or 6-foot beds and Extended or Crew Cab configurations, the Canyon comes perilously close to stepping on some full-size pickup toes, and that probably suits GMC just fine.

"Great exterior and interior looks. Fit and finish is first quality. Very smooth and quiet ride. Nice all around compromise between a true off road/working truck and an urban utility vehicle that can double as a hauler."

Is this the best looking pickup truck ever?

"We took delivery of a loaded SLT extended cab on 2-19-15. We had driven a 2015 Colorado Z71 and another SLT, both crew cabs, before factory ordering. Ours is Onyx black with the Cocoa/Dune interior. The Canyon won our vote because you can't get the lighter interior colors in the Chevy and the seats in the Z71 were harder than in the GMC. Also, the GMC has more padded surfaces inside. Both the Chevy and the GMC drive very well and we particularly like the electrically assisted steering, relatively plush interior, brawny good looks, overall build quality and practical size and economy. We added a hard tonneau to permit dry hauling. The truck rides pretty well, though still "trucky" (one of our other vehicles is a full sized Lexus for comparison and we traded in a Corvette). We actually plan to use the truck as a highway cruiser, so it had to be comfortable for long periods of time. The high belt line can create a bit of claustrophobia and the steeply raked "A" pillar can interfere with entry, but once situated, outward visibility is very good compared to most new cars and crossovers. Not sure we will ever exploit all the entertainment tech, but really like the nav system and Bose audio. The rest is intuitive and pretty easy to figure out. Wi-Fi works well. Overall, great looking, fun to drive, adequate power, semi-luxurious and pleasant to be in!"

Cons: "Throttle response poor, seats slightly narrow"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"s comfortable. Biggest negative is the transmission is always searching for the right gear to be in and the throttle response is very sluggish. There is a noticeable bog in lower gears."
