The Canyon delivers good handling and a ruggedly attractive exterior but it can't match the power or interior accommodations of others in its class. If you're in the market for a compact pickup, also consider the Toyota Tacoma.

Pros & Cons

2007 GMC Canyon Overview

Auto reviewers generally find the GMC Canyon to be an adequate but not outstanding performer with rugged good looks. "In the end, the Canyon was fun to drive," reports the Wall Street Journal. "For urban settings, where small trucks are more likely to turn up, it helped that the Canyon was easy to park and maneuver in traffic. It also manages to look rugged -- though not quite ready for the lumberyard parking lot." Many reviewers point out that the Canyon is akin to a miniature version of larger GMC models. Kelley Blue Book writes, "If you like the rugged, bold look of the full-size GMC Sierra pickup, but want it in a smaller package that gets better fuel economy, check out the Canyon." Despite overall praise, many reviewers think the Canyon is underpowered and has poor-quality interior materials not in line with the truck's price.

In fact, at higher trim levels, the Canyon costs about as much as its larger siblings. The Detroit News notes that the GMC Sierra is "the same price. Against that backdrop, the two-wheel-drive Canyon Crew Cab SLE doesn't look like a great value." A reviewer for Car and Driver calls the sticker price "a shocker," saying, "I'd be more forgiving if there were some neat touches," but "I'd need something more than just increased agility to keep me out of a full-size truck." The Arizona Republic concludes, "The price advantage compared with the big trucks is negligible." IntelliChoice gives two-wheel drive versions of the Canyon a rating of "better than average" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership compared to others in its class, while four-wheel driver versions get a rating of "average." The crew cab, however, gets a rating of "worse than average."

The Canyon is available as a regular cab model, an extended cab, or as a crew cab. Regular and extended cab models are available with base, SL, and SLE trim packages, while crew cab models are available only with the SLE package.
