2018 GMC Canyon review: Our expert's take

What it is: The Canyon mid-size pickup truck is a corporate twin of the Chevrolet Colorado. The Canyon comes in two cab styles — extended and crew cab — and in two wheelbase lengths: 128 and 140 inches. Extended-cab models have rear-hinged rear doors and a 6-foot-2-inch cargo bed. The crew cab has four regular doors and a choice of bed lengths: 5-foot-2 or 6-foot-2. Engine choices include a gas four-cylinder or V-6 and a turbocharged four-cylinder diesel.

Competitors include the Honda Ridgeline, Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma.

Black leather front seats with red stitching are newly available for the All Terrain model, and a washer-fluid-level sensor is now standard on all models.

Exelent truck over all

Would give it a 5 star but for the lack of a mettle bumper and the dumb location of the headlight control and 4 wheel drive control (almost half to open the door to see them) along with the fact I half to duck down to see the fuel gauge.


Best truck I have owned

This truck is every thing I wanted on it and more, couldn't be more happier, So this truck on line and to my surprise it was still at the lot for sale , test drove it and bought it on the spot, Dealer ship very friendly to work with.


Great vehicle so far

I've only owned it a few weeks but for a first time truck owner, I'm really liking it. If there was one thing I could change, it would be to get rid of the key start and add a push button start. Other than that, I love it.
