Is the GMC Canyon available in manual transmission?

I’ve been shopping for a new GMC Canyon but every one I’ve looked at has an automatic transmission. Can you still get a GMC Canyon with a manual transmission?

Unfortunately, not anymore. GMC stopped offering a manual transmission option for the Canyon in 2019 because of extremely low demand. Prior to that, a manual transmission was offered in the two lowest trim levels—the base model and the SL trim.
The Canyon and its Chevrolet sibling, the Colorado, were among the longest manual transmission holdouts. In fact, that same year, Ram stopped offering manual transmission for the Ram 2500.
There are only two trucks on the market today that continue to offer a manual transmission option—the Toyota Tacoma and the Jeep Gladiator.
The move away from manual transmissions has been steady in the truck market. Here’s a look at when some of the most iconic pick-up trucks stopped offering a stick-shift option:
While the popularity of manual transmission is waning, its fans remain loyal. Manual transmission vehicles also happen to be cheaper to repair and insure.
