Both the 2021 GMC Canyon and Sierra 1500 deliver powerful, responsive rides, ample cargo and cabin space, and impressive towing capacities. But which one is better suited for your needs?
If you want to spend less money but still have a truck to handle your routine towing needs and support your outdoor activities, check out the 2021 GMC Canyon. If you can stretch your budget because you need more power, towing capability, and high-end features, then the 2021 GMC Sierra is a better match.
The full-size 2021 Sierra 1500 has a larger footprint than the 2021 Canyon. It is longer, wider, and taller and offers a choice of three cargo boxes, which outpace the size of the two cargo boxes available in the Canyon. The larger exterior dimensions of the Sierra 1500 also translate to more head- and legroom for your second-row passengers. But, the Canyon is easier to manage on narrow streets, in parking spaces, and over challenging terrains thanks to its smaller silhouette.
A bigger truck needs a bigger engine, and the 2021 Sierra delivers with several options, with horsepower ratings of 285, 310, 355, and 420. The Canyon offers you three engines that net horsepower ratings of 200, 181, and 308.
When properly equipped, the 2021 Sierra 1500 can tow a maximum weight of 11,800 pounds. The 2021 GMC Canyon tows a maximum 7,700 pounds when properly equipped.
