ROAD TEST: GMC Canyon owners better be prepared to haul

The 3.6-liter and eight-speed propulsion system offers a strong, confident acceleration and smoother shift performance than the GMC Canyon's previous V-6/six-speed combination. This combination focuses on refining everyday driving performance, including accelerating from a stop, passing on the highway and cruising at a constant speed. The 3.6L leverages technologies such as continuously variable valve timing, direct injection and Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) to balance performance and efficiency.

Anyone who knows me will tell you I shy away from pickup trucks. And yes, I know I'm supposed to be an impartial journalist, capable of suspending my personal tastes and giving every vehicle a fair shake. Still, to say I was looking forward to the 2019 GMC Canyon Crew Cab Denali would be a stretch.

However, I can say I learned a number of things from the experience. It also led me to wonder why people think it's OK to ask you to haul things when you have a truck.
