When it comes time to buy a truck, there are choices you have to make between a truck with more capability, and one with better fuel efficiency. Luckily, both the 2016 GMC Canyon and Sierra 1500 offer capability and fuel efficiency for an affordable price. Today, we'll cover the differences in horsepower and interior features to give you the best idea of which truck is the right fit for you. If you are interested in taking a closer look at either of these trucks, schedule your test drive appointment online.
The difference in size between the Sierra and the Canyon correlates with the change in engine size. The smaller engine on the Canyon offers 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque, while the 4.3-liter V-6 under the hood of the Sierra puts down 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. With more towing capacity, the Sierra is better made for tough jobs and heavier cargo, but the fuel efficient Canyon will save money on longer trips. Both trucks offer incredibly affordable capability, and look great on the road.

An eye-catching design for the exterior makes both the Sierra and the Canyon a great option for an everyday pickup truck. The fuel efficiency ratings for the 2016 Canyon are 19 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway. Compared to the 18 miles per gallon in the city and the 24 miles per gallon on the highway that the Sierra has to offer, the Canyon might be the better choice for drivers with a longer daily commute or those who simply wish to save time and money at the gas station.
Although both trucks offer versatility in hauling and driving, they also offer comfortable interiors with the latest high-tech options. Standard features include a first-row LCD screen and a standard auxiliary input jack. These features make the center console more modern, while also adding convenience through easy connectivity for media devices. Standard vinyl seating in the Canyon and cloth seating in the Sierra makes the ride more comfortable for you and any passengers.
Choose between different size trucks for a ride to fit your needs. Longer truck beds are available for those that deal with more cargo, and crew-cab is optional for those who need room for passengers.
