Affordable, feature-packed pickups that don’t sacrifice performance are tough to come by, but the 2018 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado are two that fit the bill. They’re also similar in almost every way possible, except for their interiors, which is where drivers will notice the most significant differences. The Canyon has a higher price tag than the Colorado, but it also has a refined interior that’s unexpected for pickups in this class. Relaxed cabin noise, detailed craftsmanship, and a sleek, techie instrumentation panel are just some of the features you’ll find in the Canyon, while the Colorado’s interior is a bit more downplayed with basic seats and a modest dash. It’s not until you opt for a higher trim level for the Colorado, like the Z71, that you’d get perks like more power adjustments for seating and more elegant packaging. In other areas, the trucks are mostly identical. They each offer plenty of technology with wireless integration, navigation systems, and USB connections, and their standard and optional powertrains are powerful enough for hauling, towing, and powering through hills without eating up too much fuel mileage. Depending on the chosen configuration and engine, both trucks can see up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway.
