Big news for the GMC Canyon for 2016 is indeed big news for the compact/midsize-pickup segment: the availability of a new 2.8-liter Duramax 4-cylinder turbodiesel with 369 lb-ft of torque, towing capacity up to 7,700 pounds and EPA highway fuel economy of 31 mpg.
All-new for 2015, the Canyon is based on a tough frame like that of the frame of the full-size GMC Sierra, has a modern look, efficient engines and a refined interior.
About GMC Canyon Extended Cab
The 2016 GMC Canyon, with great style, robust capabilities and three noteworthy engine choices, immediately jumps to the top of what had become a stale and even lackluster compact/midsize pickup-
truck segment. It offers powertrains and configurations the others cannot match, a whole new level of refinement and technology and is wrapped in the best looks of any of them. Available as an Extended Cab or Crew Cab, with a 5- or 6-foot bed, it beats the longtime class stalwarts, the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, in several ways: three standout engines (including a new turbodiesel), more towing capacity (up to 7,700 pounds), superior fuel economy (up to 31 mpg highway), innovative technology, a new standard of refinement and luxury and far snazzier looks.
