2005 GMC Canyon 4dr Crew Cab Z71 SLE Base Rwd SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this truck new in Oct 2004. My review from Jan 06 remains true. This truck has been outstanding. The fit and finish on the interior is fine, the exterior has held up perfectly. It is very well powered, and a pleasure to drive. Does great in Michigan winters. Even better with new Dick Cepek FC-II tires. I've hauled many loads of wood, pulled a small boat, traveled with family of five and never been let down. The only two issues have been the theft deterance went out (minor), and the drivers window regulater died ($300) I have 86k miles and plan to put on many more.


Best Features

Fuel economy, drivers legroom and headroom, handling is good, and performance is above average.


Worst Features

Inline 4.2 six cyl, or a turbo (clean) diesel option. 8 ft bed option on reg cab. Bose stereo like wifes envoy. (I'm jealous)

2005 GMC Canyon 2dr Regular Cab Z85 SLE Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my 2005 used in 2009 after the lease ran out. It is a great tight well handly truck and I have had no problems with it. It gets a consistant 26 mpg with 3.5 and auto transmission. As I said I bought it used, but it still is in great shape and I am very pleased and would recomend it to anyone wanting this size truck.


Best Features

Great gas miledge, and good handling. Nice in between size and very confortable seats and interior.


Worst Features

Right side door lock!!!!!!! This is my only complaint!
