With efficiency that complements its leading capability, the GMC Canyon diesel is rated at a segment-topping 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway (2WD) – or 25 mpg combined – according the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Canyon diesel 4WD midsize pickup models are rated at 20 city and 28 highway – and 23 mpg combined.

“GMC Canyon is designed for those who want a smart-sized premium pickup that is quiet, capable and efficient and the new Duramax diesel engine gives customers another choice for handling heavier work and recreational needs – while doing it efficiently,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “It’s the very definition of GMC’s professional grade ethos.”

The diesel’s efficiency also means it can go farther between fill-ups. With its 21-gallon fuel tank, it offers an estimated highway-driving range of up to 630 miles.

Canyon’s 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine generates 181 horsepower (135 kW) and 369 lb-ft of torque (500 Nm) to enable trailering ratings of 7,700 pounds (3,492 kg) on 2WD models and 7,600 pounds (3,447 kg) for 4WD models – ratings unmatched by other midsize competitors.

A variable-geometry turbocharger helps optimize power and efficiency across the rpm band and a balance shaft contributes to smoothness. The engine is also paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, which uses a unique Centrifugal Pendulum Vibration Absorber (CPVA) in the torque converter to reduce powertrain noise and vibration.

Canyon diesel models also feature a diesel exhaust brake and an integrated trailer brake controller. The exhaust brake enhances vehicle control and can reduce brake wear. It uses engine compression to slow the truck down, reducing the amount of conventional braking needed while traveling downhill. The integrated trailer brake controller system works with the ABS system to provide immediate and measured brake force, signaling to the electric-controlled trailer brake systems so there is no need for an aftermarket trailer brake controller.
