The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.8
4.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 GMC Canyon looks good and performs well, but falters on safety. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator, for better or worse, is a Wrangler with a bed. Nothing else will satisfy those who seek exactly that, but competitors are more comfortable and more affordable.
