(2005 model shown)


The mid-size Canyon pickup continues as a boldly styled alternative to smaller compact models and unwieldy full-size trucks. It shares platforms and components with both the Chevrolet Colorado pickup and the HUMMER H3 SUV. Power comes from either a lackluster standard 175-horsepower 2.8-liter four-cylinder engine or a more capable available 220-horsepower 3.5-liter five-cylinder version. While both include electronic throttle control and coil-on-plug ignition to help maximize fuel economy, neither a V-6 nor V-8 is offered for heavier-duty tasks. 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. Three different suspension packages are offered, along with a long list of options that allows for maximum customization. For 2006, a sensing system is added that will automatically turn the front passenger's airbag off when no occupant or a small rider is detected. Also, a new, ZQ8 sport suspension package is available that includes 17-inch aluminum wheels and body-colored wheel flares. A new SLT trim package becomes newly available for 2006 on Extended Cab and Crew Cab models.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
