The 2019 GMC Canyon is a premium midsize pickup truck that’s known for its three potent and efficient engines. Here’s a quick overview of each one so you can find which 2019 GMC Canyon engine suits best suits your lifestyle.
2.5-liter four-cylinder engine
The standard engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, partnered with a six-speed automatic transmission. It enables the Canyon to tow up to 3,500 pounds and creates quite a bit of power for a base engine — 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for a manual transmission if you want direct control over the engine’s power.
3.6-liter V6 engine
If you’re craving pure power, the 3.6-liter V6 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission delivers. In total, it serves up 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque and tows an impressive weight of 7,000 pounds.
Duramax® 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine
The 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine boasts a number of best-in-class ratings such as an amazing 369 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity reaching up to 7,700 pounds. The last best-in-class quality arrives in efficiency, with a highway fuel economy of 30 mpg.* It doesn’t stop with multiple segment-leading stats, as it also introduces the segment-first exhaust brake that slows the truck using engine compression.
These amazing engine options let you customize the 2019 GMC Canyon to suit your needs from an everyday commute to towing power for tough jobs. If you’d like to learn more about the Canyon’s engines or try them out yourself, visit us at Transwest GMC to schedule a test drive.
