2019 GMC Canyon vs. Its Competition

2019 GMC Canyon
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If you haven’t fallen head-over-heels for the Canyon, it's worth checking out the Chevrolet Colorado, which can be cheaper and has better-packaged options.

Off-roading fans will long for the ZR2 model, too.

The Toyota Tacoma has long been the leader of the pack, but the GM twins have overtaken the Taco in recent years thanks to superior quality.

The Nissan Frontier has been largely unchanged since 2005 but is a lot cheaper and can be had at a significant discount.

For those who want more comfort, the crossover-based Honda Ridgeline is slightly less capable, but much more livable.

Top-tier Canyon buyers would be smart to cross-shop a larger Sierra too if their parking options allow.
