You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Colorado as you will with the GMC Canyon, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

Cost

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a larger turning radius than the GMC Canyon, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
