Welcome back to our 2015 GMC Canyon long-term test. To read the whole series, click here.

Horsepower and torque aren’t everything when it comes to working with pickup trucks. Much of a truck’s life will be spent sitting still while being loaded and unloaded. So before we even mention the powertrain, let’s look at how the GMC Canyon works while it’s in park.

Starting with the business end of the pickup truck, the Canyon offers four permanent tie-down spots in the corners of the bed. They are nicely sized rings that are fully coated with the spray-in bedliner, making them durable and easy to access. Unfortunately, they are a little low in the bed and that can occasionally lead to them being tough to reach depending on what you’re packing back there.

There is a solution. GM offers optional tie-down rings that can be installed higher up to solve the problem, though unfortunately our tester doesn’t have them.

Diesel on the way with this truck?
"With an EPA fuel-economy rating of 17 mpg city and 24 highway for a truck equipped with the V-6 and four-wheel drive, the Canyon—and the Colorado, for that matter—may not have hit the efficiency home run some were hoping for, but it still handily beats the Tacoma, and a diesel model is scheduled to arrive next year." -caranddriver.com

I better wait till next year then. :neener
Just getting more practical now, id rather wait for diesel variant. How about you guys?

I don't agree wth the mini truck having them like that and the 3/4 ton + trucks not having it like that.... the large majority of the people that buy tht truck will be the ones that fill the the tank with the wrong fluid.... smh...
