2019 GMC Canyon Interior Review


Interior: 7.0

The 2019 GMC Canyon looks good inside, and it feels upscale thanks to the prevalence of mostly top-notch materials. The front seats could be more supportive, but they're comfortable. Only Crew Cab models have adult-friendly rear seats, however. A user-friendly infotainment system headlines the features list.

  • "The 2017 GMC Canyon's interior is a lot nicer than market expectations might have required, and it's a fine blend of modern style with truck practicality." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)
  • There's no mistaking the GMC Canyon as anything but a pickup from the outside, but in terms of comfort, it delivers the kind of pleasant accommodations that are normally reserved for SUVs. … Though there are some plastics that aren't exactly class-leading, the Canyon has a likable and well-organized cabin overall." -- Edmunds (2017)
  • "It's also a big step above the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma in terms of gadgets, interior quality and – in our opinion, anyway – style, given its brand-new design compared to rivals' aging looks." -- Autotrader (2016)


The base GMC Canyon doesn't include a rear seat so it only seats two. All other Extended Cab models seat four, while Crew Cab models can seat five. Vinyl upholstery and a power-adjustable driver's seat come standard. Cloth or leather upholstery, a power-adjustable passenger seat, heated and ventilated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a heated steering wheel are available. 

The front seats provide plenty of space for most adults, and they're reasonably comfortable, though they could use a little more support. The Crew Cab's rear seats have enough room for adults, but the Extended Cab's rear seats are cramped.

Two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors are in the Canyon's second row. The lower anchors are mostly easy to use, but the top tether anchors are hard to find.

  • The Denali's seats are comfortable on long drives despite firm backrests and a slight lack of lateral support. The back seat has a flat, upright backrest with little thigh support but manages to fit adults with decent comfort on short trips." -- Edmunds
  • "There's ample center console storage, and the Crew Cab should handle four adults with decent comfort and five in a pinch." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)
  • "More importantly, we discovered the front seats could be a little more supportive after a long stint behind the wheel." -- Autotrader (2016)

Interior Features

Standard features in the Canyon include Teen Driver (which lets you set speed and audio volume limits for secondary drivers), a rearview camera, and the GMC Infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, a six-speaker audio system, two USB ports, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth.

Available features include automatic climate control, wireless phone charging, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, a seven-speaker Bose audio system, HD Radio, satellite radio, additional USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

The Canyon gets an updated infotainment system for 2019. The new setup is intuitive and easy to control. The touch screen responds quickly to inputs, and there are physical controls for some features.

  • "Smartphone integration is well-executed and looks great on the large, high-resolution screen. It has a simple look, but it works well, which is what counts. The newest GMC infotainment system, called Infotainment 3, has quick responses to touch inputs and good native controls." -- Edmunds
  • "Most of the functions are in a big center stack, with large knobs that should be easily operated by gloved hands." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)


A 6-foot-2-inch bed is offered with both Crew Cab and Extended Cab Canyons. Crew Cab models are also available with a 5-foot-2-inch bed. A step is cut into each corner of the rear bumper to make it easier to climb into the bed, and the optional EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate makes it easier to open and close the tailgate. There's plenty of small-item storage space in the cabin, though other trucks have more convenient folding rear seats.

  • "In-cab cargo space isn't nearly as useful as in the Tacoma or Ridgeline because the rear seatbacks simply fold down atop the seat bottoms and create a high, uneven space. You can fold the seat bottoms up instead, but there's not much under there because of the bulky seat-base design." -- Edmunds
  • "An available EZ Lift-and-Lower function uses built-in struts to allow the tailgate to be opened and closed with just one hand. For more practicality, the bed can be split into upper and lower sections thanks to a standard two-tier loading system." -- Left Lane News (2016)
  • "At the business end, both GM trucks offer a decidedly user-friendly cargo box. Not only are there four 'solid' tie-down hooks, there are also 13 ports that can hold additional hooks, and there are optional racks for such things as bikes and kayaks that can be purchased through the dealer. Also nice is a damped, easy-open (and lift) tailgate, along with a step built into the rear bumper." -- Consumer Guide (2015)
