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.
