Introduction

The GMC Canyon midsize pickup, like the Chevy Colorado, offers a smooth ride and a comfortable cabin with the utility of a pickup bed, making it a good alternative to a car.

New for 2017 is the GMC Canyon Denali, intended to offer upmarket comfort and convenience.

Also new for the 2017 GMC Canyon line is a new 3.6-liter V6, slightly more powerful than the one of identical displacement that it replaces, mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission.

Base engine is a 2.5-liter four cylinder making 200 horsepower that’s remarkably adequate for most needs, and which works well with its quick-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission.

Best fuel mileage and towing (7700 pounds) comes from a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel that makes an enormous amount of torque and is quite expensive.

The Canyon comes as an extended cab, with rear-hinged rear doors and a small bench seat in the back that can fit groceries or two child seats; or a crew cab, with four full-sized doors and seating for two adults in the rear. The bed lengths are 6-foot, 2-inch and 5-foot, 2-inch.

Four-wheel drive is available, with an automatic mode that works like all-wheel drive in cars. Rear-wheel drive is standard.

Standard safety features include six airbags and a rearview camera, oversized sideview mirrors, and trailer sway control. Forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems are available, rare features for a midsize pickup.

The two-wheel-drive turbodiesel gets an EPA-estimated 22/31 miles per gallon City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. The base four-cylinder is rated 20/27/22 mpg with the 6-speed automatic, a touch less with a manual transmission.

The 2017 GMC Canyon 4WD with the new V6 is rated 17/24/19 mpg. It features a cylinder deactivation system that cuts two cylinders when less power is needed and is designed to run on Regular gasoline.

The NHTSA gives the Canyon four stars overall in safety, while the IIHS has only tested it for frontal impact, giving it the top score.

Lineup

The 2017 GMC Canyon comes in SL, base, SLE, SLT, and Denali, along with many cabin and powertrain configurations. The SL is priced at a bargain-basement $20,940, and the 4WD Denali tops the line at more than twice that, $42,820. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charges.)

The Canyon SL and base are largely the same, except the SL is more intended for rough work, with its vinyl flooring instead of carpeting; and it has fewer features. Standard equipment on the base includes air conditioning, power windows, power driver’s seat, and USB port.

Canyon SLE adds an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, and other features. Also more options are available, including an All Terrain X package for offroad that includes skid plates, hill descent control, and more rugged all-terrain tires.

Canyon SLT, with heated leather seating surfaces and automatic climate control, has been bumped out of the top luxury spot by the new Denali, with cooled seats and a heated steering wheel.

Walkaround

The GMC Canyon midsize pickup has a deliberate and strong family resemblance to the full-size GMC Sierra, a bit less to the midsize Chevrolet Colorado and full-size Silverado. The front fascia is familiar, the tail is similarly tidy, and the squarely flared wheel arches mimic big brother. The shoulder line sweeps up at the rear pillar, a nod to the global market, in particular Southeast Asia where it’s popular.

The Denali has its own grille, wheels, and bolt-on bits that we think detract from the cohesion of the design. We prefer the simpler SLE and SLT. It is a truck, after all.

Interior

Canyon’s cabin is rugged and stylish. It fits the image of business truck, but wouldn’t be out of place in a crossover or wagon. The seats, armrests, cupholders, and console shift lever feel almost sedan-like, even more so on the top models with their tasteful aluminum trim and contrasting stitched soft-touch materials. The quality of the trim will embarrass the pedestrian Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, although the Honda Ridgeline is up there with the Canyon.

And it’s convenient. On the instrument panel, a central pod contains the main controls and a display unit, with the gauges behind a beefy steering wheel with controls. There’s ample storage in bins both open and covered, and there’s a storage space under the rear seat of the crew cab. The step-in height is reasonably low, and running boards are available.

Any Canyon is far more comfortable than the Tacoma or Frontier. The front seats are shaped well for passengers of all sizes, they have good bolstering, and a higher seating position still with more headroom than the Frontier or Tacoma. There’s great room to stretch in front, although the second row isn’t particularly good. It’s bolt upright, which wears on passengers especially during a long trip.

But it’s only the Denali that feels notably upscale, even though the fit and finish is a bit short of high end. It’s acceptable on the other models, but given the Denali’s status, the standard is higher.

The extended-cab comes only with the longer 6-foot-2 bed that can accept an optional extender to haul items eight feet long, such as plywood or two-by-fours. The crew cab has front-hinged rear doors, and comes with either the longer bed or the 5-foot-2 bed. There’s a step in the rear bumper to make it easy to climb up into either bed, and a tailgate that’s easy to raise and lower. Also available are 17 tie-down points, a choice of spray-in bedliner or drop-in one, cargo dividers, a system of racks and carriers called GearOn, cargo nets and tonneau covers, a drop-in toolbox, and trailer hitches and harnesses.

Driving Impressions

The base four-cylinder is adequate, making the Canyon an acceptable second car for the family, with its fuel mileage of 22 miles per gallon; its open bed for cargo gives it an advantage over a compact crossover. Its payload ranges from 1450 to 1620 pounds, enough for a bed full of rocks or sand, not much less than a full-size truck.

With 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, the 2.5-liter engine works hard, but it’s smooth and fairly quiet. It feels better driving around town, where it’s perky. And it’s better with just rear-wheel drive, and the 6-speed automatic that shifts well. The manual is only available in the base model with rear-wheel drive, and we’re not sure why you would want one, almost irrelevant because you can’t hardly get one anyhow.

The most common Canyon will be 4WD with the new 3.6-liter V6, making 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. It comes with 8-speed automatic that we like in other GM vehicles. We’re not sure what’s new about this new V6, besides a bit more horsepower, and we haven’t driven it yet; all we know is that GM promises it will be smoother than the previous V6 that could feel a little gruff.

The four-cylinder turbodiesel is a 2.8 liter making 181 horsepower but more importantly 369 pound-feet of torque. It’s a charmer that only sometimes feels rough, and it works well with the 6-speed automatic. It can easily tow 7700 pounds, only 700 more than the rating for the V6, but the turbodiesel shows less stress because it has 94 more foot-pounds of torque to support acceleration.

Applause for GM for the ride that’s almost level to a sedan, on a conventional suspension that’s comfortably tuned. It rounds off bumps nicely, although like any body-on-frame design, the Canyon transmits a fair share of secondary ride motions to the cabin.

The handling is nimble and cornering confident. It’s not all that much smaller than a full-size Sierra but drives like it is. The electric power steering is weighted well and tracks mostly true.

The four-wheel-drive system is GMC’s AutoTrac, which allows manual selection of 4WD or an Auto mode that frees the electronics to vary the torque between axles depending on traction needs. An automatic locking differential is available on some models.

Summary

The GMC Canyon offers the smooth ride and comfortable cabin of a car with the hauling utility of a pickup truck. Three distinct powertrains are available. The Canyon is a much better substitute for a car than are the Toyota Tacoma or Nissan Frontier.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
