Driving Impression

“”

Though it’s no automotive athlete, the Canyon is quiet and agreeable on the road. Handling qualities are typical of pickup trucks: easy enough to drive, but seldom likely to shine in terms of gratifying maneuverability.

As for passenger comfort, too, Canyons ride like – well, trucks. No surprise there.

As expected with such a wide array of powertrain choices, performance varies according to engine. As in most pickups, the smallest engine, a 200-horsepower four-cylinder, delivers satisfactory response to the gas pedal. For a brisker feel, upgrading to the 3.6-liter V6 and its more energetic 308 horsepower may be well worth the additional cost.

Diesel engines have been falling out of favor lately, but they continue to provide two specific benefits when installed in trucks. Most notably, high torque output yields a particular flavor of exuberant performance that entices plenty of pickup drivers. Secondly, diesels are considerably more fuel-efficient that comparable gasoline engines.

When properly equipped, with the turbodiesel engine, a Canyon can tow up to 7,700 pound. The V6 version can haul as much as 7,000 pounds, but it tends to feel overtaxed when near that limit.

Fuel economy ranks around average. With rear-wheel drive and either manual or automatic transmission, the four-cylinder is EPA-rated at 20/26 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. Four-wheel drive drops the estimate slightly, to 19/24/21 mpg

The less-thrifty V6 is EPA-rated at 18/25 mpg City/Highway or 20 mpg Combined with rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel-drive models earn 17/24/19 mpg.

With rear-drive, the 2.8-liter turbodiesel is EPA-rated at an impressive 20/30 mpg City/Highway, or/23 mpg Combined, dipping to 19/28/22 mpg with four-wheel drive

Walk Around

Suave design work blends with a squared-off profile to make the Canyon ruggedly handsome. Overall styling is comparable to GMC’s full-size Sierra.

Rectangular headlights and wheel arches, complemented by a tall grille, emphasize this midsize pickup’s boxy shape. Less curvy than Chevrolet’s Colorado, the Canyon seems more down-to-business. A high, rising beltline gives it a slightly sportier look.

Canyons come in Extended Cab or Crew Cab form with a short (5-foot-2) or long (6-foot-2) cargo bed. All extended-cab pickups get the long bed. Both cab types have two doors on each side: rear half-doors on the Extended Cab and conventional full-size doors on the Crew Cab.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Demonstrating solid build quality throughout, GMC’s midsize pickup truck has a welcoming, largely carlike interior rather than a strictly workaday setup. Most controls sit high on the curvy dashboard, well within the driver’s reach. Canyon drivers also benefit from an excellent infotainment systems

Front occupants get ample space, but those in back are likely to feel somewhat squeezed. Especially in extended-cab models, the back seat works best as an auxiliary storage area. Crew Cabs offer greater interior space

Lower-level Canyons, aiming at utility, aren’t likely to impress anyone for their features or flashy trim. Stepping up toward Denali level, the poshness factor slips into the picture. At the very top, the Denali edition adds simulated wood along with leather upholstery, which can also be found in the SLT version.

Despite the Denali’s ritzier look and enviable reputation, it’s actually more of an appearance package than an amalgamation of high-end features.

Summary

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Midsize dimensions, satisfying powertrains, and suave design make the Canyon tempting, but lack of safety technology is a stumbling block. Only a couple of active-safety features are available – either optional, or standard with Denali trim. Otherwise, even the base model is well-equipped, while Denali trim could almost rank as a luxury truck. Chevrolet’s closely-related Colorado is typically cheaper.
