GMC Canyon Denali review: An unbeatable pickup truck for the price
Added 07-28-18 04:02:02pm EST - “For people looking for a premium truck at a good price, the Canyon is unbeatable. But more than that, if you're considering a premium car and a work pickup, you won't be sacrificing much if you get one vehicle that can handle both…” - Cnbc.com

It's been more than three years since GM re-entered the midsize pickup truck market with two cars, the GMC Canyon and its twin, the Chevy Colorado. To keep things fresh, GM later added a diesel model of the Canyon for the more heavy-duty users out there.
After a week with the most high-end model -- it's called the Canyon Denali -- with a diesel engine, I'm sold on the GMC Canyon. It's comfortable, confident and capable, but it's hard to make a case for why someone might want the diesel version.
When they arrived, the Canyon and Colorado ushered in a new era of refinement and civility in the class.
The Toyota Tacoma instantly felt outdated. Even when Toyota updated it shortly thereafter, the Tacoma was still rougher around the edges than the GM entries. Now, a new Honda Ridgeline truck probably wears the comfort crown, but its unibody construction and car-like demeanor make it tough for truck-buyers to take seriously.
The Canyon is the happy middle. It's a real truck with an actual truck frame, but it's also adorned with leather and high-quality interior trimmings when ordered in its top-of-the-line Denali trim.
