2009 GMC Canyon Crew Cab - 4 Cyl. Engine
djc4410 Aug 07, 2009
We bought it at the end of July, 2009, with a "cash for clunkers" trade. The engine performs quite well for a four cylinder powerplant. It would easily zip up to 85mph on freeway if not paying attention to speed. Fit and finish are outstanding -- especially for a GM product. With rebates and clunkers cash, we paid less than a used 2006 model sells for today. (We had wanted a Ford Ranger Crew Cab but unfortunately, they are presently made only in overseas markets. A flashy model is now selling in Australia.) Too bad, but buying the Canyon was a great alternative.
2009 Canyon 4 door Crew Cab 5.3L V8

We just purchased the 2009 Canyon Crew Cab with the V8. We got a great deal and the truck is awesome. The body fit and interior trim is precise and the 5.3L V8 (Gen IV LH8) must have under-rated horsepower figures because this truck is powerful, quick and nimble. I have been driving a 2000 S-10 extreme since I bought it new and thought it was the greatest, but this Canyon feels lighter and more responsive. The on demand torque and power pushes it effortlessly down the road. The new ZQ8 Sport suspension provides a smooth, no body roll ride. I couldn't be happier.
