2017 Toyota Tacoma: Rugged and Bold

One of the ways that the new 2017 Toyota Tacoma is superior to the 2017 GMC Canyon is with its bold styling. As we stated earlier, Toyota has completely revamped the styling on the Tacoma recently for its 25th anniversary and it is just a beautiful pickup truck. They have given the truck a new hoodline, hex pattern grille that is similar to the Tundra, a more industrial looking tailgate with the Tacoma logo stamped in it and more. This is truly the best looking version of the Toyota Tacoma that has ever hit the market. On the other hand, the new 2017 GMC Canyon does not look nearly as stylish as the 2017 Toyota Tacoma. It is not a bad looking truck, but it is in need of some serious updating in our opinion.

In addition to that, the 2017 Toyota easily has the 2017 GMC Canyon beat in areas such as overall reliability and capability. That is especially true when you look at the new 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro that has been built to be an off road lovers dream. Everything about this truck has been tuned to handle anything that you can throw at it. GMC does not make a Canyon model that even comes close to comparing to it.
