The GMC Canyon and its near-twin Chevrolet Colorado replaced the junior-sized GMC Sonoma and Chevy S10 pickups. Both came in regular-and extended-cab versions (the latter with swing-out rear doors) as well as in four-door crew-cab livery. A 175-horsepower 2.8-liter four-cylinder engine was standard, while a 220-horsepower 3.5-liter five-cylinder was optional. For 2006, a nearly identical Isuzu-branded pickup appeared, one year before the four-cylinder powerplant was enlarged to 2.9 liters and output increased to 185 horsepower.
