(The Car Connection) — More 2023 models roll into dealer lots, and automakers this week disclosed the pricing on new and carryover models. Without exception and as news to no one, prices are up year over year, ranging from only $500 on the 2023 Ford Ranger to more than $7,000 on the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning.
GM followed up the launch of the redesigned 2023 Chevrolet Colorado last week with the launch of the related 2023 GMC Canyon this week, positioning it as GM’s off-road mid-size pickup truck. Here’s what else we covered.
The redesigned mid-size pickup separates itself from the Chevy Colorado with a 310-hp turbo-4, one crew cab and short bed configuration, and an off-road attitude.
The three-row SUV with seats for seven is best with the V-6, which helps it earn a TCC Rating of 6.5 out of 10.
Cadillac’s smallest crossover has good acceleration and a comfortable ride that overshadows a dull interior design to earn a TCC Rating of 6.2 out of 10.
The quirky Cooper rolls on in two-door, four-door, hard top, convertible, and electric versions, but trimmed availability limit its TCC Rating upside to 6.0 out of 10.
GMC’s take on the heavy duty pickup truck adds up to nicer finishes in the cabin, and other available features. It earns a TCC Rating of 7.0 out of 10.
Chevy’s heavy duty pickup trucks can be had in multiple cab and bed configurations, and tow enough in diesel form to qualify as a commercial work horse. It earns a TCC Rating of 6.3 out of 10.
