Decent Value in a Midsize truck.

2007 GMC Canyon Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is a review of regular cab "work truck" 3.7L I5 with 4-spd automatic. This truck has come in very handy with home renovations and trips to the dump. The 5cyl. engine has plenty of power and rivals competitors' V6s. The 4-spd auto is very smooth. The interior is spacious and relatively comfortable, but horribly cheap in quality. Everything is hard plastic. There are ugly gaps in dash pieces. It looks poor quality. Reliability has not been all that great. The truck was purchased for a very low price, so the myriad problems are easier to swallow. I don't recommend considering this truck unless you can get a fantastic deal on one. Otherwise there are much better trucks for the money.

Tough Truck

2007 GMC Canyon SLE 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have used this basically for business use the past 2 years. Towing a trailer and snowplowing with a BOSS plow. 4 wheeling is great because of the locking rear dif. It is quiet on the highway. I upgraded the wheels to 18" purchased from GM Parts.

Review

So far this has been a wonderful truck. The ride is smooth, acceleration is smooth, shifts are firm, lights at night on the outside are excellent. Gas mileage isn't horrible either, first tank, I averaged 20.13 mpg with rural/city driving [45 mph-55 mph] and the occasional passing gear stomp.

Towable 4WD/Automatic

Review

Edmunds and several other experts rate the GMC Canyon lower than its competitors. They overlook one important aspect. It is towable flat. You cannot tow a Toyota, Honda, Dodge or Mazda automatic flat. This is important when you want to tow a 4wd/auto truck behind a motor home. Only the GMC or its companion, the Chevy Colorado in a midsized pickup has the advantage of a neutral switch. Drop the tranny into neutral and away you go.

2007 GMC Canyon SL 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Although its been reliable, this is the most uselessly designed truck I've ever had. The bed is ok for firewood, mulch, etc (but the bed is too thin and girly). The mandatory 6 foot bed is annoying. You can't even lay down a six foot ladder flat. It's a real loser to load with construction materials. The tailgate lowers to accommodate 8 foot materials. However 4' wide drywall, plywood doesn't fit between or on top of the wheel wells. Very annoying. Poor design. There's also a large blind spot when turning left or going around sharp left curves.

SO DISAPPOINTED!

2007 GMC Canyon SL 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought this truck brand new. They "shipped" it from PA, and when I got it there was 600 miles on it. Within the first two weeks, the driver's window and passenger windows got stuck and wouldn't go up. Then after one and a half years, I already needed rear brakes. Got those replaced and then I needed front brakes. Got those replaced and it's been squeaking ever since. Also, the tires (that came with the truck) began "warping" from the inside after about a year. On top of all these problems, the gas mileage is HORRIBLE! I travel approximately 53 miles a day and I have to fill up every four days. I'm so not happy! I'm looking elsewhere, but not looking forward to losing money.

DONT EXPECT DECENT MILEAGE!!
By Norman on 05/14/09 17:22 PM (PDT)

2007 GMC Canyon SL 4dr Extended Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Long story short, 4cyl short bed 2wd automatic. 6500 miles and regardless of ethanol blend or 100% fuel AND smooth acceleration AND following speed limits, 15mpg. Yes, 15 mpg and 17 highway. that is completely pathetic. My 110,000mi 4x4 4.0 liter cherokee did better. Why compromise with a 4cyl and get worse mileage than my friends 4x4 3/4 ton 6.0 liter with 4.10 axle ratio. Upon taking in for service, service advisor reports that everything is as it should be and that is just what mileage they get. Needless to say, that is completely pathetic. I and my family have ALWAYS owned GM vehicles. I guarantee this will be my last. I have never been this let down with a vehicle out of the 60+ ive had

Pretty good truck overall

2007 GMC Canyon SL 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Truck lacks in the power department, especially after putting any larger wheel/tires on. I added exhaust, high performance plugs, throttle body spacer, and knn air filter which all helped quite a bit. Exterior design is fabulous great looking truck. The auto locker in the rear is a great thing to have has saved me a lot especially being 2w. Interior with the vinyl floor is nice and easy to keep clean no carpet to worry about staining. Seats are uncomfortable @ best. Handles very well around corners. Manual version has low towing capacity.

Very, very basic

2007 GMC Canyon SLE 4dr Crew Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Good truck but very basic. Drive daily commute to work of 60 miles round-trip. Comfort is minimal compared to Ford Sport-Trac. Wide stance gives stable ride but very noisy inside. Needs better sound- proofing and door gaskets. Hard to see ignition key due to big steering wheel center. Hard to find and connect to the power outlets beneath the dash. Needs interior storage behind seats and read seat headrests block vision out back window.

2007 GMC Canyon SL 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Always owned Toyota's bought this because it was cheap, and had a lot of power out of the 4 cylinder. Motor is weak, unless heavily gouged. A lot of cheap features inside, check engine light comes on all the time, cheap plastic bumper cracked and fell off. Seat in uncomfortable at best. Lot of cab room but the cheap interior kinds of kills that
