2005 GMC Canyon

Enlarge Photo
Brand new last year, the mid-size GMCCanyonis updated slightly for 2005 with available leather seating package for extended cab models, cloth door trip panel inserts included with leather packages, and a newly available sunroof. Also, an MP3-compatible audio system becomes available, along with new 15-inch aluminum wheels in the High Stance Off Road package. It shares platforms and components with the Chevrolet Colorado. Unlike the only other mid-size domestic model, the Dodge Dakota, the Canyon neither offers a V-6 or V-8 engine. Rather, power comes from either a standard 175-horsepower 2.8-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 220-horsepower 3.5-liter five-cylinder version; both include electronic throttle control and coil-on-plug ignition to help maximize fuel economy. The truck is available in either rear- or four-wheel drive, in short-wheelbase regular-cab and long-wheelbase extended- and four-door crew-cab versions, with three different suspension packages.
