2020 GMC Canyon review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 GMC Canyon?

The GMC Canyon is a mid-size pickup truck that’s available in extended- or crew-cab form. It comes standard with a 200-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine; a 308-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 and 186-hp, turbo-diesel 2.8-liter four-cylinder are also available. The Canyon is available with rear- or four-wheel drive. Competitors include the Honda Ridgeline, Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma. The Canyon’s Chevrolet sibling is the Colorado.

What’s New on the 2020 GMC Canyon?

A key fob-operated remote-locking tailgate and tire fill alert system are newly available.

What Features in the 2020 GMC Canyon Are Most Important?

Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity make it easy to connect your smartphone and access content. Available 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot help you stay connected on the go (data subscription required after initial trial period). There are premium Denali and off-road-focused All Terrain versions, as well, and available features include remote start, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and wireless device charging.

Should I Buy the 2020 GMC Canyon?

The Canyon’s available V-6 engine is powerful and the truck’s cabin is quiet on the highway, but a number of other aspects of the driving experience disappoint; brake-pedal feel is poor and the ride is stiff. The seats aren’t that comfortable, either. In a recent comparison of four mid-size trucks the Canyon finished last, so it’s definitely worth checking out the competition before making a final purchasing decision.

Nice midsized pickup

This midsized pickup is perfect for someone who wants to use it for commuting and side projects. I'm very disappointed that it does not have built in Navigation. That seems like small money to include that.

4.7

Very pleased.

I have been very satisfied with the Canyon. Gas mileage is very good and the performance is excellent so far. I’d recommend buying a Canyon to others.
