An integrated trailer brake controller offers enhanced control of your trailer brakes while the Diesel Exhaust Brake System can help reduce the amount of braking needed while towing or traveling downhill. (Available on Elevation, AT4, and Denali)

Available Automatic Locking Rear Differential

When the going gets rough, the automatic locking rear differential offers improved traction on loose gravel or slippery surfaces by locking both rear wheels to deliver power where you need it.

A rugged ride needs rugged brakes and your 2022 Canyon’s Duralife brake rotors offer powerful stopping performance with corrosion-resistant rotors when you need it most.

StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control

This standard system detects the difference between the path being steered and the direction the vehicle is actually traveling. It then uses the brakes and, if necessary, adjusts engine torque to help you keep your vehicle on track.

So you get no compromises with the Canyon diesel because the chassis, suspension and other elements of its architecture were engineered to include the Duramax 2.8L. This engine offers exceptional capability delivered with a confident feeling of control, advancing the Duramax brand’s legendary legacy of durability and reliability.

Efficient And Refined

Two-wheel drive Canyon models equipped with the 2.8L Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine are EPA-estimated at an impressive 30 MPG highway. Canyon is also equipped with a Centrifugal Pendulum Vibration Absorber (CPVA) in the torque converter that’s designed to control vibration and noise.
