About GM Canyon
The GMC Canyon is the Chevrolet Colorado’s sibling. The GMC models are slightly more expensive than the Chevys, but customers get more modern design and a more sophisticated interior. Mechanically, and in terms of feature availability, the two trucks are identical. It all comes down to looks and perception. The Canyon will be available in three cab designs and three trim levels: WT, SLE, and SLT.
The Canyon can be ordered in a chassis cab configuration that can be upfitted by the dealer with panel van-style or “midbox” storage solutions for businesses and contractors looking for a customized small work truck.
The 2010 GMC Canyon has only minimal revisions. Variable valve timing has been added to the 5.3-liter V-8 for improved emissions and somewhat better performance across the power band. Side curtain airbags are now standard equipment. Three new exterior colors refresh the Canyon’s aged appearance.
The Canyon has an angular headlamp brow taken from the Colorado, which demands a more trapezoidal grille execution than typical GMC truck front ends. The more known rectangular-oval grille can be found on other GMC vehicles, including the redesigned Sierra.
The Canyon maintains its sporty silhouette. In recent years, several trim levels have received extra body-colored moldings, bezels, and surrounds to give them a more athletic appearance.
The Canyon has cosmopolitan touches on the inside, but the entire atmosphere suffers from a plastic hangover. All of the gauges and controls are in their proper locations, and the truck excels in terms of usability and functionality. The roomy cab accommodates wide, comfy front seats, but the rear jump seats in the extended cab are only for children.
