Trying to determine exactly which midsize truck best fits your needs and meets your expectations can be much more difficult than it may seem. There are plenty to choose from, and each one offers a variety of models and tons of trim levels to choose from. Our team here at Serra Toyota is working to provide readers with comparisons among equally priced models and trucks of popular midsize trucks to show what each one has to offer.
We’re going to take a closer look into the 2016 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Double Cab SR, which is the base model, and compare it to the 2016 GMC Canyon Extended CAB 4WD Base. Drivers will notice off the bat that these two trucks are quite similarly priced and offer comparable fuel economies. The GMC Canyon is slightly more efficient,whereas the Toyota Tacoma offers a more powerful performance.

Looking at the height, length and width of these trucks, drivers will notice the Tacoma SR and the Canyon Base have almost the exact same exterior measurements. The Canyon offers front seat passengers a few more inches of legroom than those in the Tacoma. However, the Tacoma gives rear seat passengers 32.6 inches of space, whereas the Canyon has just 28.6 inches of legroom. Both midsize trucks have a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
When it comes to safety, there are a few features that are standard on both models. Anti-theft protection, automatic headlights, electronic traction control, hill start assist control and a low tire pressure indicator are all standard on the Tacoma and the Canyon. However, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma SR starts to come out on top with a few additional safety features not available on the GMC Canyon Base. These include front knee airbags, a brake assist system and active head restraints. The Tacoma SR is also set with a standard CD and MP3 player, outside temperature gauge, power mirrors, rear split folding bench seat and Bluetooth, which are features not available on the base of the GMC Canyon. Both trucks are set with cruise control, backup cameras and optional keyless entry.
