2009 GMC Canyon V-8 ZQ8


The 2009 GMC Canyon is a very fast and functional compact truck available with 2 and 4 wheel drive. You can choose from three primary trim levels - 1) Work Truck 2) SLE 3)SLT — all of them differences only various equipment allocations based on body style. Engines in two previous Trucks are still on top: the standard 2.9-liter 4-row-cylinder with 185 hp and 190 lb./ft. of torque, and an optional 3.7-liter inline five-cylinder producing 242 hp and 242 lb./ft. of torque. There’s also a new stunning heart trembling V8 that pumps out 300 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. I want to write about a special version of the GMC Canyon with a low sport suspension ZQ8 and I’ll review this version. This V-8 monster powered by a 300-horsepower engine can be mounted with every cab form extended cab or crew cab. GMC Canyon is the evil Twin of 2009 Chevrolet Colorado. I like the rear wheel drive version whitch reminds me the famous Chevrolet El Camino.

5.3-liter V-8 is a fantastic muscle engine with 300 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. Even fully loaded It can launch very fast from red traffic lights. The V-8 is connected with a four-speed automatic transmission. It both smooth and quick to downshift when you need a fast burst whan you need “power-to-pass”. The Canyon has got installed standard traction controll system and stability system. It has got a fantastic drivetrain with a beautiful V-8 rumble. What a pity that this truck ain’t got the six-speed automatic transmission that are mounted with the 5.3-liter in the full-size trucks. These the extra gears would be helpfdul to controll the boost performance and effectiveness.

ZQ8 Sport Suspension

The ZQ8 sport suspension is a custom design suspension system thet characterizes Canyon V-8 trucks. With the firm ZQ8 suspension, the 2009 Canyon is a quite stiff feeling small truck. ZQ8 versions come standard with 18-inch aluminum wheels shod with low-profile all-season tires and fantastic suspension elements.Fast, responsive steering and a taut suspension create a driving feeling like in non-truck car,it makes Canyon a really performance-edge car.

The Canyon is a truck finished with weak-quality interior materials that are seriously not in a line with its price. In fact, at higher versions, the little Canyon costs closely as much $ as the larger trucks made by GMC.The whole cab seems like it’s has been produced in another era, and it looks like made in past century. The first Canyon was produced in 2004 year, and since then GMC didn’t change almost anyhing in car’s interior.

Trunk Box

GMC Canyon V-8 2009 is procuced in three body styles: regular cab, extended cab and crew cab. Crew cabs are equipped with a 5-foot cargo box, while other Canyons feature a 6-foot bed.While it may be easier to load cargo in this version than in a full-size truck, the size of the crew cab Canyon’s cargo box limits the kind of work it can be used for. At 61.1 inches long, 57.2 inches wide (42.6 inches between the wheel wells) and 18.6 inches deep, the Canyon isn’t the best choice for hauling a load of drywall — even if you decide to get a regular or extended cab model with the 72.8-inch bed. Still, my test truck’s 1,250-pound payload rating means there are plenty of other, less-bulky loads it can carry.
