This is a great mid size truck!

Truck tows well, rides well is very stylish, very comfortable and has great features. Gets great gas mileage for a truck. Wish the dealer would've had a diesel in stock but the gas model is great. Only issue is a shudder when driving at a steady speed.

- Will C

This is the first GMC I have owned and am absolutely pleased with it.

My 2018 GMC Canyon is a 6 speed manual 4 cylinder. It gets roughly 24-26 mpg. It rides smoothly for a truck and is easy to shift. My favorite feature is the hill assist.

- Regina K

When you are driving, it is quiet and comfortable inside.

Smooth ride, quiet, sleek, can haul things if I need to, comfortable ride in front and back. Has the latest technology. This is my second canyon.
