Comparison Review

Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Canyon than in the Ford Ranger. The GMC Canyon will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Ford Ranger.

The GMC Canyon requires less frequent visits to the gas station than the Ford Ranger, making it more convenient to drive.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Ranger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Canyon. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Ranger and the GMC Canyon have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Ford Ranger is much wider than the GMC Canyon, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Ranger takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the GMC Canyon.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Ranger transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the GMC Canyon.

The Ford Ranger has a similar turning radius to the GMC Canyon, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

If you've got something you need to tow, the Ford Ranger will do just as well as the GMC Canyon, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Ranger has a little less horsepower than the GMC Canyon.

The Ford Ranger has less seating than the GMC Canyon, making the GMC Canyon the better choice if you often have passengers. You'll be able to haul more material in the Ford Ranger than the GMC Canyon, due to its significantly greater cargo capacity.

The Ford Ranger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Canyon.
