The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 GMC Canyon returns with its powerful V-8, more safety features, and new exterior colors, but a cheap interior remains a letdown. The 2008 Ford Ranger’s best, highest use is as an inexpensive work truck or off-road play toy. Anything else exposes the flaws in its seating, its fuel economy, its available features and in its performance.
