GM's small pickups, the Colorado and its GMC Canyon twin, are more maneuverable than full-sized trucks and are better equipped than their Nissan and Toyota competitors.
We tested both the V6 engine, which returned 18 mpg overall, and the four-cylinder diesel, which got 24 mpg overall.
The ride is rather choppy, as expected of a pickup, but handling is responsive.
Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are available, as are extended-cab and crew-cab body styles.
Inside are the latest electronics, including the easy-to-use infotainment system.
These small trucks offer forward collision and lane departure warnings.
Recent updates include a new Infotainment system and an available locking tail gate.
