Our previous post discussed the GMC trucks in the Canyon family and how they are considered small, but not really small at all, depending on what you compare them to. The truth is, the compact truck has been phased out really. We are now dealing in large and midsized pickup trucks from virtually every manufacturer in the United States and Canada. So, let us look closer at all that the new GMC trucks at Dominion Motors of Thunder Bay has to offer in the way of engines, etc.
Presently, there are two GMC Canyon engines from which to choose. The standard is a 2.5-liter four with 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque, while the engine that is next in line is a 3.6-liter V-6 making 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. If you choose a rear wheel drive 2.5 model in these GMC trucks from Thunder Bay Ontario, you can also choose a manual 6 speed transmission, otherwise you will see a six speed automatic across the board in these new and used trucks…even in the V-6.
What about efficiency? It’s definitely true that this is rarely a strong point for trucks, period. “As you’d expect, the four gets better EPA ratings—19 mpg city and 25 highway with 4WD, while a 4WD V-6 like our example is rated at 17/24.” Here’s the deal though…if you want to push these trucks to the max in and around Thunder Bay ON, then you will likely need to go for the six cylinder. The acceleration is there for these GMC trucks, more than any of the others. You can also unleash the power with the ability to tow 7000 pounds!
