You shouldn’t have to choose between power and efficiency, so GMC made them both a priority in the 2018 Canyon diesel. This well-mannered beast is equipped with a Duramax 2.8-liter inline four-cylinder turbo diesel engine that delivers a respectable 181 horsepower and a massive 369 lb-ft of torque while maintaining 22 miles per gallon in the city and hefty 30 on the highway. It’s perfectly balanced to give you trailering rating up to 7,700 lbs and with the available technology assistance, you’ll haul with confidence.

The StabiliTrak® with Traction Control gives you extra grip, while the Trailer Sway and Hill Descent Control help you maintain precision control in less than ideal terrains. Not to mention, the Canyon diesel is the first in its class to offer a diesel exhaust brake. This available system works with Tow/Haul mode and Automatic Grade Braking to reduce the amount of braking needed while towing or traveling downhill.
