NEW DURAMAX DIESEL

The newly available Duramax 2.8L turbo diesel 4-cylinder engine will be the first-ever diesel in a mid-size pickup. It is estimated to produce 181-hp and 369 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired with an enhanced version of our 6-speed automatic transmission, the Duramax will be B20 Biodiesel capable and will come equipped with an Exhaust Brake System that reduces the amount of conventional braking necessary when towing or travelling downhill.

3.6L V6 (GAS)

The 3.6L V6 engine satisfies the power-hungry while being the epitome of efficiency. The 3.6L V6 manufactures 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque offering 13.0 L /100 km city6 and 9.2 L /100 km highway6 (4x2). When equipped with the Max Trailering Package, it offers a max trailering rating of 3175 kg (7000 lb.).7

2.5L 4-cylinder (GAS)

Rated at 200 horsepower, the Canyon’s 2.5L engine is the most powerful 4-cylinder in the segment. Estimated fuel consumption ratings for models with an automatic transmission are 11.9 L/100 km city2 and 8.9 L/100 km highway2 (4x2) and 12.7 L/100 km city2 and 9.6 L/100 km highway2 (4x4). A 6-speed manual transmission is available on 4x2 extended cab SL or base Canyon trim models.

DURALIFE BRAKE ROTORS

This Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing technology is a GM-exclusive patented process that hardens and strengthens rotors. Duralife protects against corrosion and can help double the life of the rotors compared with conventional rotors.

 
DRIVER CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

  • StabiliTrak® with Traction Control helps you stay on course, even during sudden manoeuvres, by intelligently managing braking and throttle to help keep the vehicle on its intended path

TRAILERING AND HAULING

We pushed our engineering further so you can pull more. Delivering enviable trailering and payload, the available 3.6L V6 defies its size by being strong enough to pull up to 3175 kg (7000 lb.)7 when equipped with the Trailering Package. The powerfully efficient 2.5L I-4 engine reliably trailers up to 1588 kg (3500 lb.)7 with the bumper-mounted ball hitch. The powerhouse 2.8L Diesel is expected to tow up to 3493 kg (7700 lb.).7

TOW TECHNOLOGY

The 2016 Canyon is built for the long haul with technologies to make carrying your gear safe and satisfying right from the driver seat. Tow/Haul mode on V6 models raises automatic-transmission upshift points for more power to accelerate when trailering or hauling heavy loads.
 

Hill Start Assist sensors detect when the Canyon is on a 5 percent grade or more. It holds the brakes momentarily until the accelerator is pressed, preventing rollback.
