The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The new available V-8 engine is a long time coming and helps position the Colorado as a worthy rival to the most capable compacts and an alternative to full-size trucks. With the addition of the new V-8 option, the 2009 GMC Canyon goes from unappealing to quite competitive.
