Looking at the exterior of the Canyon, it is easy to see that it holds the aggressive and powerful stance that we have come to know and love about the GMC brand. Despite its smaller size, the chrome details and impressive performance make it a vehicle worthy of its popularity. The Tacoma offers a more modern spin on the midsize pickup, but with considerably less power and a lower fuel economy rating, it's difficult to stand next to the Canyon. The GMC Canyon's 2.5-liter I-4 engine puts down an impressive 200 horsepower and achieves an estimated 26 miles per gallon on the highway. The Tacoma's less than 160 horsepower and only 23 miles per gallon on the highway makes it a less versatile pickup in comparison to the 2016 Canyon.
Looking to the interior, the Tacoma does come with additional space for passengers in the rear and standard Bluetooth compatibility. The GMC Canyon offers both of these at higher trim levels, but does not provide them as standard features. However, the GMC Canyon does offer a colorful first-row LCD screen, just like the Tacoma, and tougher and easier to clean vinyl seating. The cloth seats in the Tacoma aren't prepared for tough work, while the more powerful GMC Canyon is made to handle whatever you throw at it. When it comes to choosing between these two pickups, the Canyon is built for the road, while the Tacoma offers a few extra interior features. The more impressive Canyon is a powerhouse even at the base trim, making the Tacoma the lesser value in a new pickup.
