Default GMC Canyon Review - What the Auto Press Says

The 2012 GMC Canyon ranks 4 out of 6 Compact Pickup Trucks. This ranking is based on our analysis of 45 published reviews and test drives of the GMC Canyon, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

Reviewers say that while the 2012 GMC Canyon is a decent compact pickup truck, itís outdone by rivals in nearly every way.

Though the GMC Canyon is practical and useful for shoppers who want a basic, utilitarian pickup, its engines and interior are subpar. Its smaller engines lack power, and its powerful V8 comes with the trade-off of especially poor fuel economy. Plus, its interior quality and materials are seriously lacking when compared with rivals like the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma.

But if youíre in the market for a sharp-looking truck thatís a good value, test drivers say the GMC Canyon might be the truck for you. It hasnít seen many significant updates since its last redesign in 2007, but it still manages to look up-to-date and brawny, much like its full-size GMC Sierra sibling. "The 2012 GMC Canyon looks sharp and offers good light-duty pickup truck value," writes Edmunds. ďBut in just about every other area, it doesn't measure up to its competition."
