2008 GMC Canyon Review
At GMC we've been engineering and building professional grade trucks for over a century and everything we've learned in that time has gone into the 2008 Canyon. Canyon delivers all the capability and technology you'd expect in a genuine GMC truck. Canyon offers 2 great engines to choose from for 2008. With 185 hp and 190 Foot pounds of torque the Vortec 2.9L I-4 engine gives you more power than any other normally aspirated 4-cylinder engine in its class. Want even more? With Canyon's available 242 hp Vortec 3.7L I-5 engine you'll enjoy the performance of a V6 and the fuel efficiency of a 4-cylinder. Canyon is engineered to grip the road regardless of the season. Standard features like all-season tires and 4-wheel anti-lock brakes help to maximize the available traction. For even more grip there's a choice of available Off-Road or Sport Suspensions. And of course the surefootedness of 4-wheel drive is available on every Canyon model. Is there nothing Canyon Crew Cab can't do? With a huge payload rating a large double-wall steel cargo box with a handy 2-position tailgate it's ideal for hauling gear. And it's just as good at transporting people with a spacious 5-passenger interior and 4 large front-hinged doors. The bottom line? If you're looking for a mid-size pickup that meets the standard of professional grade the 2008 Canyon is your truck.
