2011 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 Canyon. Canyon delivers all the capability and technology you'd expect in a genuine GMC truck. The 2011 Canyon offers3 great engines to choose from. With 185 hp and 190 Foot pounds of torque the Vortec 2.9L I-4 engine. 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. Or go with the power of the 5.3 Liter V8 with 300 Horsepower. 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 an even sportier ride go for the ZQ8 Sport Suspension Package. It rides 2 inches lower and comes equipped with 18 inch wheels. 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 interior that can seat 3 5 or 6 passengers depending on the Cab you choose. The bottom line? If you're looking for a mid-size pickup that meets the standard of professional grade the 2011 Canyon is your truck.
