In the case of the 2022 GMC Canyon, it gets praises for having simple climate and audio controls. As you read along, you will discover which between these trucks are better all in all.

Design & Style

One of the aspects that will easily catch your attention once you get to see the 2022 Maverick is its bold and attractive cabin style. You will find many of its components a little underrated when compared to others, but the way each element is placed is worth everyone's approval. Such rational placement makes the cabin definitely a winner for the compact truck.

Meanwhile, the 2022 GMC Canyon, feels dated especially when compared to its Ford counterpart. Even with making the cabin look more professional than in the past, the age already shows in how it made overall.

Technology & Safety

The Maverick gets praises for its easy-to-use infotainment setup. This one has an eight-inch touch screen and has functionalities that you will appreciate. The ride has a Wi-Fi hot spot, two USB ports, and six speakers. The Santa Cruz offers these features too, but one thing you will not love about the setup in the Hyundai is the fact that the surface collects dust and fingerprints. This can even be distracting to use when a strike of light hits it, most especially direct sunlight. Its list of safety amenities includes the rearview camera, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, automatic high-beam headlights, and forward automatic emergency braking as a standard.

The 2022 GMC Canyon uses a seven-inch touch screen display with its infotainment interface. Add to that, it also has smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six speakers, and two USB ports. You will be quite dismayed that the ride only offers the rearview camera, together with Teen Driver feature as a standard.


The Ford Maverick hits up to 191 horsepower for its engine. It uses a combo of gas and electric motor under the hood. It gets a score of 23/30 mpg for city/highway driving, respectively. That of the GMC may yield up to 200 horsepower, but it is less fuel efficient than the Ford with a score of 19/25 mpg for city/highway driving.

The Bottom Line

You can see that both rides are tough on the outside, but inside, there lies the difference. It all starts with the use of materials for cabin construction, which is further deepened by the list of reliable technologies to offer. The other is more fuel efficient than its rival. All positive things go to no less than the 2022 Ford Maverick.
