The 2018 GMC Canyon is part of the General Motors mid-size truck tandem that also includes the Chevrolet Colorado. If sales indicate popularity, then the Colorado is the more popular of the two, but functionally they are nearly identical. And, since most consumers place GMC upscale of Chevrolet, you could say the Canyon is the more prestigious of the two.
All that said, the Canyon is an excellent mid-size pickup. It offers comfortable ride quality, significant payload capacity, and pleasant amenities. On top of that, it looks good, making the most of its bold GMC grille. While most Canyons will probably never leave hard pavement, a properly equipped version can hold its head up as a serious off-roader. Among the handful of mid-size pickups that are still offered for sale here in the United States, the Canyon is among the freshest and the best.
