The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 GMC Canyon won't replace a full-size pickup in our garage, but reminds us why mid-sizers are a good alternative for drivers that covet utility over ultimate payload and towing numbers. The 2014 Nissan Frontier is your best bet when looking to downsize from a full-size pickup, balancing maneuverability and size with utility and comfort.
