    2012 GMC Canyon Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the GMC Canyon

    • GMC's Canyon and its Chevy Colorado companion focus on the light-duty non-commercial user -- assuming heavy haulers will move up to the full-size Sierra and Silverado.

      - Consumer Guide
    • Although the truck is marginally shorter than its predecessor, the Sonoma, its about four inches wider inside.

      - New Car Test Drive

    What reviewers liked least about the GMC Canyon

    • Less impressive is the overall design and quality of the interior, as it still wears the drab gray plastic panels of its predecessors.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Perhaps the cheapest interior around, flimsy front seats, cramped rear seat in extended-cab models, thrashy base engine

    • The GMC Canyon is a handsome light-duty pickup that looks good on paper. But out on the road or trail, where passenger comfort and refinement really count, it doesn't quite measure up.

    GMC Canyon Comparisons

    • With 220 hp, the optional 3.5-liter engine gives the Colorado and Canyon the highest horsepower rating in the class, but like its six-cylinder cousin, the power is situated higher in the power band than on most truck engines.

    • The base Canyon has a no-fault interior right down to its rubber floor mats so you can get in with muddy work boots and not feel guilty. The SLE, however, has more comfort-minded interior with carpeting and more luxurious fabric on its seats.

    Best one-liner about the GMC Canyon

    • The dinosaurs of GM's lineup, the Chevy S-10 small pickup and its twin, the GMC Sonoma, are dying a slow death.
