2005 GMC Canyon Extended Cab 2WD User Reviews
Z85 SLE shown
- $5,967 - $7,911
- Great looking truck, excellent ride, good mileage, functional and attractive interior
- Seats could use more support, engine a bit noisy in low range
I had my GMC Canyon extended cab w/6 ft bed for 3 months now, 1200 miles. Average over 20 mpg combined (21mpg last tankful). Excellent ride for a truck-5 cylinder engine a good compromise between power and economy. Truck is not sluggish at all. This is a very functional truck perfect for light to medium duty use (ie., a truck for personal, as opposed to commercial use). Excellent value as I acquired mine with auto 4WD for $22k with Duraliner and Tonneau cover.
Extended version gives great utility for inside storage-but would not recommend extended area for passenger comfort except on short rides. If you need space for more than 2 passengers (I don't) go with the crew cab.
Only complaint is that I wish the seats offered a bit more support. In first 3 months and 1200 miles, not a single defect noted in the truck.
For the money, you can't beat this truck....read morehide

- size,fuel economy,locking differential,ride,quiet interior
- cheap little storage boxes under rear seats,overdrive in & out in cruise toomuch on nearly level roa
I just recently traded for my SLE Z71 and I have mixed feelings about the trade.I like the looks,ride & handling & fuel mileage & have received a lot of compliments on the truck,but the storage boxes in the rear seating area remind me of a really cheap plastic tackle box from a discount store(the latch on one was was laying the floor when the salesman was showing me the truck).In cruise control the trans is constantly downshifting@55mph on a nearly level road,I find this very annoying,even my wife's PT Cruiser is'nt this bad. On the upside I really like the locking differential,this in some ways is as good as many 4wd vehicles.Moving out from a standstill on a rainy wet road is like driving on dry road compared to non-posi trac trucks when you're spinning the tires trying to move. 1st tank full of gas netted 22mpg back & forth to work on town & country roads(3.5L engine). GM -Fix a few little things and you'll have a great truck. If you don't I'll go back to Fords I been driving....read morehide

- Better body style
The 5 speed manual on a 4 cyl engine is useless. 5th gear is only good for interstate driving and their is a lot of vibration in the gear shift during travel and idle. The 5 cyl engine also lacks the power you would expect from a truck that follows the V6 in the S-10. The interior is not an improvement on the previous S-10. The gauges are at odd angles which makes them difficult to read. The bucket seats are useless unless you are 5 years old. The tool storage under the rear bucket seats is CHEAPLY made and the center consolue is very small. The cup holders on the manual transmission are only good for small cans and noting else. The optional body molding was falling off before even leaving the truck dealership. It also seems that the body metal is even thinner and easer to dent. Overall, this is what I would expect Kia to produce as a truck, not GMC. This is not a professional grade!...read morehide

- 3.5L, 5 cyl engine, Allison Transmission, Good Load Capacity, Automatic Stereo
- Traction Control is on by default, Paint is easily chipped.
This is a mid-size truck that thinks it's full-size. This truck it tough ... definitely professional grade like the advertisement says. Every feature on truck is above-average right down to the radio that adjusts it's own volume when you speed up or slow down. That way the radio isn't too loud when you get pulled over for something else (ha,ha). I don't like having to turn off the traction control when it isn't needed and around here it normally isn't needed but buy this truck. You won't regret it....read morehide
