Should I Buy the 2022 GMC Canyon?
The Canyon's available V-6 engine is powerful, while the available turbo-diesel uncorks the truck’s top towing capacity and provides the best EPA-estimated gas mileage. The Canyon’s cabin is quiet on the highway, too. Unfortunately, a number of other aspects of the driving experience disappoint: Brake pedal feel is poor and the ride is too stiff. The seats aren't all that comfortable, either.
