  • TACOMA vs CANYON

    Looking at the
    2016 Tacoma (loaded)
    2015/16 Canyon (loaded)

    more of a dual purpose Work/Play truck

    I've owned a few Toyotas, all great.
    Resale on the Toys are great..no brainer
    But the GMC looks nice , a bit more room, even tow 1k more i think

    I have a Tow vehicle for the Boat on long hauls..so let skip the full size option...

    Canyon is a much better looking truck, IMO. I have no experience with the new models of this truck, but I know I'd lean towards the new Canyon, looks like they've got a winner there.

      Although I like the new look on the Canyon, I am on my second Tacoma and absolutely love the truck. Rides more like an suv then a truck and used to tow my boat at 65+ like a champ...

      My buddy switched from Ranger and is very impressed with the Tacoma... :-)

        I have a 2012 Tacoma. It has been solid, no problems. It is still the best looking truck in my opinion. But the MPG is TERRIBLE. I know the new Taco is supposed to be better power/mpg, but the price seems pretty high. I would go full size on my next truck.

          those small trucks are really useless IMO. I get 21.5 average MPGs in my 2015 silverado, and those little toy trucks almost cost as much as a half ton.

            Yes, the Toyota is a no-brainer on the resale and reliability for me. This would be my fourth one

            I'm really liking the looks of the canyon, and it seems that pretty good reviews so far.

            GMC/Chevy had a dud with the last Canyon series. So I hate to be the guinea pig on a new model. I tend to drive my vehicles very far and put a lot of miles on them so they go out of warranty quick

              Totally agree with you on the pricing Aric. I can get a 1/2 ton tundra for the exact same dollars.
              But I need something a little bit smaller, at work, and I don't need to capacities of a one half ton.
              I drive so many miles, getting over 20 miles per gallon on city highway combo here in San Diego adds up a lot.

              For me, it's serving the purpose of a car and a truck at the same time
              Our Sequoia platinum is an animal. I have no problem with the towing capability., for our vacation needs.

                Inquiring minds want to know if you are talking Canyon Diesel or Gas?

                  at 65 or so i can get like 25 or more MPGs with the 5.3 and 3.42s! id check out the canyon diesel if you must go the mini truck route, especially after the whole frame thing on the Tacos

                      For sure, I had the previous first-generation Tacoma. I drove that 300,000 miles with a little more than oil changes and front shocks. I'm glad I skipped over the second-generation. It looked OK, but I didn't hear very good things

                      Canyon has the diesel coming out, I think they'll be available in March?

                      I suppose I could get whatever I want, but I really want to stay away from a larger full-size pick up truck, for the given application

                          A touch over 1.2 million tacomas have been recalled due to frame rust or leaf springs rotting and falling off. I'll pass.

                            I'm a GM guy. And my biggest issue with the Colarado is the engine. That would have been a great truck if the used the 4.3 that's in the Silverado. Not a fan of the 3.6 that's in there now, even though it fits what's the competition offers. Would like to drive the diesel version before I decide on a new truck.

                              I favor the tacoma since that's what I drive. On my 2nd one now. Tows our 197 great and I perfect size truck for my needs and easier to get around the city on my long commute.
