All-new mid-sized pickup designed for comfort
written by John Matras (print this article)

GMC's all-new Canyon pickup expands, literally, the concept of the General Motors mid-size pickup. Although the truck is marginally shorter than its predecessor, the Sonoma, it's about four inches wider inside. That bit of data is significant because it represents GMC's increased attention to comfort in the Click for a larger 2004 GMC Canyon pictureCanyon while not sacrificing the utility for the things that mid-size pickup drivers do most.
With the Canyon's distinctive new styling, it won't be confused with its GMC predecessor, the Sonoma. As the first all-new GMC truck in its class for more than a decade, the Canyon is significantly improved over the Sonoma, with a stronger frame and a suspension that's friendlier to the fanny. The Canyon has two new engines, both more powerful than those available in the Sonoma. Both have an inline configuration, one with four cylinders and the other with five. This a true pickup, with a unique frame not shared with any other truck or SUV.

The Canyon is roomy and comfortable inside and has a nice, quiet ride quality. Even the full-on off-road model feels remarkably civilized. On the highway, the Canyon feels solid and stable. The optional five-cylinder engine gives it good power, better than competing V6 engines.

The GMC Canyon is available in two trim levels: the SL, essentially work truck trim, and the SLE, outfitted in civvies rather than dungarees.

Adding the Z71 High Stance off-road package raises the Canyon 3.6 inches, and adds about $4,000 to the price. The Z71 package, available with two-wheel orClick for a larger 2004 GMC Canyon picture four-wheel drive, includes larger color-keyed flares, fog lamps, tow hooks, leather-wrapped wheel, skid plates (on 4x4 only), locking differential and, on two-wheel-drive models, traction control.
