Review of the 2005 GMC Canyon

  • It has the features and the looks necessary to get the attention of compact pickup buyers, but next to the all-new pickups from Dodge, Nissan and Toyota, the Colorado comes up short in power, interior room and overall fit and finish.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Versatile size, fuel-efficient engine lineup, simple controls, available side curtain airbags and locking differential, standard ABS.

  • Cons

    Not much low-end torque, no six- or eight-cylinder engine option, low tow ratings, subpar build and materials quality, generic interior design.

  • What's New for 2005

    No major changes this year.

Great little truck

Vehicle: 2005 GMC Canyon 4dr Extended Cab Z71 SL 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)

I bought this truck used; but it is a well built truck and has not had any problems. I am ipressed with the overall truck for the money. I would recomend it to anyone looking for a mid sized truck. With 3.5 engine and automatic it gets a consistant 26.5 mpg. No complants!
