2018 GMC Canyon Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team


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.

New for 2018


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.

Nice looking vehicle.

Go with the duramax

by Moto from Hilo on January 7, 2020

Great fuel mileage for a 4X4. 25 city, 30 highway. My buddy's uses a quart every 2500 miles but my truck is fine. Might be cause of the break in procedure I did. I wanted a Ranger but got the Canyon ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
