2022 GMC Canyon vs. Its Competition

2022 GMC Canyon
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The related 2022 Chevy Colorado sticks to the basics and lacks the premium pretense of the Canyon, but has the same safety shortcomings.

The bestselling Taco rocks its age like its renowned durability, and the rough but supremely capable TRD Pro model is hard to top.

The Gladiator brings all the cachet of the Wrangler but with a bed, while the redesigned Frontier embraces all the hallmarks of classic pickup trucks but with modern tech.

The Ridgeline handles more like the Pilot SUV it's based on and serves suburban weekend duty well.
