Not huge, but they are great for tow equipment, jerk straps, jumpers, basic tool kit etc. I keep one "dirty" the other "clean"

I didn't even do 200 miles in a week, and saw 3 of them. NW L.A. and Simi Valley

I'm within 600 miles of you and ordered August 14th so others were ordered before your November time frame. Just some dealers had a easier time getting an allocation.

8/14/2015 Ordered 2016 Canyon diesel CCSB, SLT, Copper/Red, black interior, Bose, spray in liner, transfer case shield, bars package and block heater.
Built 1/20/2016
Dealer received 2/3/2016
I received 2/5/2016

Ive only seen me and CanyonRob's. And I wouldn't have even seen his if we didn't meet up.


Meanwhile, I have brothers that work as car haulers (between local socal driving and vegas) so they are always on the road and always around new vehicles...and they've never seen a Diesel Canyon or Colorado other than mine. Crazy.

I saw two of the things in Lihue, on the island of Kauai, of all places. I can't even find one in Alaska, and there's two in Hawaii on a single island.

I haven't seen any other diesels in the NYC vicinity. I am seeing more and more gassers. I work on a bridge and 6 months ago I might see 1 or 2 twins drive across it in a day now I see a dozen or more.

I don't think I've seen any canyons but quite a few colorado bare bones work Trucks. No diesels. Seen plenty of Tacomas though. But I'm in the DC area and liberals usually don't drive American cars.. Hehe. I'm about to
change that. Just found one in VA about three hours away.

Ok, think I got the pic thing figured out... Here's a pic of my Red Rock Metalic Collie beside a Cyber Grey (I think) First time I've seen a diesel twin while actually driving mine and it was sitting at my destination! Couldn't pass up the photo opportunity. Only the second one other than mine I've seen.

Tonneau on, michelins on, running boards on. I'll get up there to pick it up Friday afternoon. In this pic the deep lug tires and wheels and the tool boxes are in the truck. Deceptively large short bed.

Looks great! What brand of tonneau cover did you go for and how does flip up? Looking for one myself and would appreciate the info.

Fold a cover. I was there for the install. I was impressed with its quality. It's a 4 section fold even on the short bed. It will all fold up to the first section right behind the cab. It will also come right off and on in under 5 minutes.

I saw a gorgeous black dmax Canyon crew in ft Collins CO today. Based on the wheels I think it was an slt and it looked real good. The guy had a set of wrangler duratracs on it too. After owning my black f150 and it always being dirty, I said I wouldn't get another black truck but this thing was spot on.

I have also seen a white Colorado dmax in Park City, UT about 2 or 3 weeks ago.

The dealer I got mine from actually had 3 of them delivered at once, but I think they were all sold before they arrived.
