Landing in the number six spot, the GMC Canyon boasts an approximate six-month premium cost of $741, according to Lee. This is less than the projected six-month premium costs of the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Mazda CX-3, and Subaru Crosstrek. The insurance cost of the Canyon is more expensive than the Jeep Compass, Ford Transit Connect, and Fiat 500X. It has the same projected six-month premium cost as the Subaru Outback and Ford Escape.
“The only pickup truck on our list this year, the GMC Canyon costs $123 per six-month policy to insure — 15 percent cheaper than the average truck. Nationwide ($65/month) and Country Financial ($70) were the least expensive insurance companies for the GMC Canyon,” according to Lee.
