Canyon vs. Colorado: Which Small GM Pickup Is Best for You?

While the GMC Canyon and the Chevrolet Colorado are both exceptional compact pickup trucks that share many similarities, they are designed to appeal to a different audience. Traditionally, General Motors considers Chevrolet a mass-market brand, while GMC’s target audience is professionals or executives.

Both compact pickup trucks returned to the market as 2015 models, following a three-year hiatus. The 2017 Colorado offers unparalleled value, and it earned our Best Compact Truck for the Money award for the third consecutive year. The Canyon costs a bit more and offers all the same qualities and configurations, some additional standard and available features, and a more upscale design.

For 2017, both models come standard with a Teen Driver safety feature, an optional 7-inch touch screen, and an upgraded V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. The Canyon adds a Denali trim and an All Terrain X off-road package for the 2017 model year.

The choice between General Motors’ twin compact pickup trucks comes down to minor details and your personal preferences. Let’s dive into the specifics on the following slides, so that you can make a research-based decision.
