Quick Drive: 2009 GMC Canyon V-8 Page 2

March 7, 2009

2009 GMC Canyon

The $32,710 sticker price on the Crew Cab SLE V-8 model that we tested left us raising our eyebrows, but the minimum price of a Canyon V-8 (with the requisite extended cab) is a more reassuring $24,000. For comparison, the lowest-priced Sierra 1500 with the 5.3-liter V-8 is just $22,320—albeit in stripped-down Work Truck (W/T) form. Most Sierra models appointed like our Canyon land in the upper $30k range. Of course these prices are now open to heavy bartering in most places.

All said, if you happen to be shopping for a compact truck now with all the options open, there are plenty of choices that you’re likely to be happier with than the Canyon or Colorado. But if you really, really want a V-8 and don’t want to stretch yourself into a full-size truck in these times, TheCarConnection.com thinks that these new models will satisfy that craving.
