Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the RAM 3500 than in the GMC Canyon. The GMC Canyon will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the RAM 3500.

Cost
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). Clearly, the GMC Canyon is a better financial choice over the RAM 3500, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Canyon is much slimmer than the RAM 3500, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the GMC Canyon, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the RAM 3500.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the RAM 3500 is clearly the choice over the GMC Canyon for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the GMC Canyon is clearly outclassed by the RAM 3500.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the engines of the GMC Canyon and the RAM 3500 are able to equally transmit their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the GMC Canyon as you will the RAM 3500. The RAM 3500 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the GMC Canyon.
