The Chevy Colorado specs are fairly similar to the GMC Canyon in a number of areas. However, the key difference lies in the handling. Motor Trend found that the Colorado stopped from 60 mph in just 122 feet, while the Canyon took 125 feet to do the same. Additionally, the Colorado Z71 handled .76 G's of cornering force in the Motor Trend skidpad test, compared to just .74 G's on the Canyon Long box SLT Crew Cab 4x4. Outdoor enthusiasts can even choose the Colorado ZR2 for a 8.9 inch ground clearance to minimize damage over rough terrain, while the Canyon maxes out at 8.3 inches.
