What is being said about Thunder Bay Ontario’s favorite GMC truck these days? Well, the GMC trucks in the Canyon lineup are being described in a multitude of ways this year, but efficient seems to be the word many are screaming from the rooftops when it comes to these new trucks in Canada this year. “The Canyon diesel’s fuel economy is not only segment-best, it tops all full-size truck mileage ratings while offering a higher trailering rating than all 2015 Ram 1500 V-6 models and some 5.7L V-8 models, as well as the 2015 Ford F-150 equipped with the 3.5L naturally aspirated V-6 – and even the 2015 Nissan Titan S model with the 5.6L V-8.” That is some stiff competition indeed and nothing to sneeze at considering that each one of the new trucks listed above offers one hell of a ride.
You don’t have to worry about filling these new GMC trucks up very often either. In fact, due to their excellent efficiency, you really can go much farther between fill ups. The new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay in the GMC Canyon Diesel lineup have 21 gallon tanks and can go steady for up to 651 miles before ever needing a refill.
The diesel engine in these new GMC trucks in Canada is a Duramax and the specs for this engine are outlined as follows: 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine generates 181 horsepower (135 kW) and 369 lb-ft of torque (500 Nm) to enable trailering ratings of 7,700 pounds (3,492 kg) on 2WD models and 7,600 pounds (3,447 kg) for 4WD models. The competition is blown out of the water here and unable to match this new GMC truck for its class and size.
