If you’re deciding between stopping by a GMC dealer to explore a GMC Canyon or visiting your local Chevy dealer to explore a Chevy Colorado, you’re getting ready to make one of the most challenging decisions of your life. Both of these light-duty trucks ultimately fall under the General Motors umbrella, which means they share quite a few similarities. At the same time, they are different enough that you’ll notice some distinction.
From that latter part of the 1970s through the early 1990s small pickup trucks were offered in much higher numbers than they are these days.
While we still have the large and powerful models on the road today and some of the full-size pickups we drive have become more efficient, the mid-sized trucks of today are closer in size to the full-sized trucks that were offered in the previous decades. What we used to have, that no longer remains, are the compact pickup trucks that were offered by nearly every automaker that was present in the market of the past.
