The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
4.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 GMC Canyon is a solid, highly recommended choice among mid-size pickups for its terrific powertrains, comfortable interior, and refined demeanor. The 2018 Nissan Frontier is a good, basic truck, but there are far more modern options for not too much more.
