The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 GMC Canyon is right-sized for today’s gas prices -- if only its engines were quieter and its rear seats more comfortable. For those of us who don't live on a ranch, the 2008 Nissan Frontier is large enough to haul real people and cargo, but sized for the urban-congestion reality.
