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.

  • 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.

Great first car

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Canyon

It is a very good truck. Very dependable and good on gas for a truck. The only complaint is the driver side door speaker has blown out. other than that it is a very enjoyable truck that surprisingly hasn't gotten stuck in any areas.

It's ok

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Canyon

Vehicle used mainly for city delivery. Fuel economy 23 mpg on route. Has manual shift which is ok, but no 'vette. Handles 3000 lb trailer ok when called on. I'd give it "considerly above average" over all.

Better than the rest

This has been an incredible truck! The engine is smooth and powerful, the suspension soaks up bumps better than my roommate's 2001 Accord, there are no rattles anywhere, and everything feels solid and of great quality. I especially love the crisp shifting of my 5-speed Aisin manual. Compared to my father's 2002 Ranger, this truck is way ahead in all areas. I highly recommend one!

Lives up to gmc quality

I opted for the the 3.5l engine and it is awesome. Lots of power. This vehicle has a smooth ride not like some trucks. Researched and test drove all the competitors in this class and liked this one best. Great quality for the price tag. Very satisfied with my choice.

Great value

I love this truck. It doesn't ride as well as a full size but is still much better than the Tacoma or Frontier.
