2007 GMC Canyon Crew Cab 4WD User Reviews
- $13,490 - $13,944
- Looks and Style.
- Only comes with a 5-cylnider. Most uncomfortsble seats I have ever sat on.
I have always been a loyal General Motors fan and was looking for a smaller than full size pick-up with a Crew Cab. I really liked the style of the Canyon and could not wait to try it. The crew-cab is what I needed and I really liked the size of this truck. I was really dissapointed that it only came with a 5-cylinder motor. I could not believe it did not come with a V-6. I was also very dissapointed with the seats. They were the most uncomfortable seats that I have ever sat on. After I drove this pick-up. I went and bought another brand. (For the first time in years, I bought something other than a General Motors product.) If this pick-up would have had a V-6 and more comfortable seats, I would have bought it in a minute because I have been a loyal Gereral Motors owner for years....read morehide

- Very fun to drive. Rides well with the Z71 susp.
- Gas mileage nose dives when hauling anything. See more below.
I've had my 2007 Crew Cab 4x4 for about three months now. I was getting well below the estimated gas mileage of 16/22 until I increased the air pressure in the tires. I bumped them up to 35 psi and it made a world of difference. Of course the ride is a little bumpier, but most people wouldn't even notice. I haul a small utility trailer with an ATV on it and the gas mileage on the road drops to around 17...but haven't hauled the trailer since the tire pressure increase. I only have slightly better than 2000 miles on it, so I might be expecting to much too soon.
Very quiet on the road for a "smaller" truck. This is my first mid-size truck. Everything I've ever owned has been full-sized and 8 cyl's under foot. So far, I am impressed with the power of 5 cyl's, especially off road. Love the locking rear axle! Excellent in the snow!
Starting to notice a slight rattle in one of the stereo speakers already and I DON'T play the radio very loud. At least not loud enough to blow out a speaker already.
I feel a little cramped inside, but I'm sure that is just me being used to having full sized trucks for the last 20 years. It took a little while to find a comfortable driving position.
Don't like the fact that only one tailgate strap holds all the weight of the tailgate and anything sitting on it! One strap is longer than the other to offer built in "slack" if you want to use the second position of the tailgate. A useless feature if you ask my opinion. I'm afraid that the strap will break with me sitting on the tailgate and I only weigh 165 pounds. Does anyone know what the weight limit is???
At the moment, I would buy another one....read morehide

- How not to design a work truck
- Powerless when laden, junky interior, flimsy overall construction
We have both Canyons and Dakotas in our work fleet that we use for servicing oil drilling sites in Wyoming and Alberta, Canada. There is no comparing these two trucks, the Dakota is a work truck, the Canyon is something I might buy for my son or daughter to drive to school. Im not trying to be a smart alec but when you use vehicles on poor roads, in ice, snow and mud and most importantly loaded with fuel tanks, gear, the differences are apparant.
The Canyons are not able to be loaded AND driven long distances due to their smaller fuel tanks and terrible mileage. The Dakota doesnt get great mileage either but it outranges the Canyon by at least 40%. The Canyon also does not have sifficiently sturdy suspension to handle heavy loads on bad roads.
The most noteable criticism I get from our crews is the lack of power from the silly little 5 cyl. engine, clearly a powerplant for cruising around town and not much more.
I have also had our Canyons in and out of the shop fixing interior issues like dash pieces rattling loose, windows that come off their tracks, HAVC controls that stop shifting airflow where directed and heater cores that have failed at an alarming rate.
Something that anyone should be concerned about is the tendency of the Canyon to become very dusty INSIDE when operating in dusty conditions outside, especially coming in through the poorly sealed rear doors. Maybe this truck has no cabin air filter but the heat vents on the dash fill with fine dirt in a matter of days when these trucks are out in the field....read morehide

- Good handling and vision. Roomy bed for a vehicle of this size. Tailgate shuts tight and locks.
- Terrible gas mileage.
The gas mileage on this vehicle is very disappointing. I get about the same as on my 2003 4WD Suburban. While it has been too soon to test it with my full size bass boat, at this point I doubt if it will have signifant power to tow it well, and will have a huge drop in MPG.
On the better side, it is fun to drive, and looks great. It is also has good viewing space for when you are in traffic, or backing a trailer. For a vehicle of its size the bed has good room, along with a lockable tailgate that shuts solid....read morehide

I have to say whoever says this truck desnt have much power is pure 100% crazy, or you have a defective engine!. I think theres almost too much power. This truck will give a new Silverado v-8 a run for the money

Truck looks great, gets great gas mileage on and off road.

Only con: is it's a little weak in proformance (engine V5). Overall I'm very happy and can life with the engine....read morehide
