Unless you’re totally sold on the blocky GMC Canyon grille, you owe it to yourself to cross-shop the Chevrolet Colorado.
The Chevy can be a little cheaper and its features are packaged a little differently, which might be appealing.
The Toyota Tacoma has long been this segment’s favorite, but the current model doesn’t quite match these GM twins.
Nissan’s Frontier is ancient—it debuted for 2005—but is significantly cheaper and can usually be had at discounts.
At the opposite end of the spectrum sits the crossover-derived Honda Ridgeline, which doesn’t have a separate frame but is remarkably capable and livable.
And by the time you’ve loaded up a Canyon, you may want to look at the GMC Sierra (or vice versa).
