With the exit of Ford's Ranger, the Blue Oval has no offering below the F-150 in its pickup range; that leaves the imports and GMC's General Motors brandmate, Chevy, for alternatives.

The Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma both offer reasonable alternatives to the new GMC Canyon, but are showing their age in terms of technology and in-cabin equipment, as well as fuel economy, packaging, and overall pickup payload and towing capability.
