2016 GMC Canyon Duramax Diesel Edmonton AB
Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular in sedan segments thanks in part to the benefits they provide in terms of fuel efficiency. In truck segments, something else has risen to prominence over the past couple of years, as diesel engine options have quickly become some of the most important features in trucks. One of the first questions that was asked after the Canyon released in 2015 was if and when it would receive a diesel option, and the answer is now thanks to the 2016 GMC Canyon Duramax Diesel in Edmonton AB.
While the engine itself is available in special trim levels like the Nightfall Edition or next year’s Denali, the Duramax Diesel is essentially its own trim level thanks to a plethora of additional features that come with the engine, like the diesel exhaust brake and integrated trailer brake controller. But the Duramax turbo-diesel engine is only available on certain Canyon models so make sure to pay attention to what you’re getting before making any decisions.
Efficiency of the 2016 GMC Canyon Duramax Diesel
For a while, we were only able to assume that diesel Canyon models would be fuel efficient, but now the fuel economy ratings have been made official, and the 2016 GMC Canyon Duramax Diesel is the most fuel efficient truck on the market. The 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine in question generates 181 horsepower alongside 369 lb-ft. of torque, which makes it one of the most powerful trucks in its segment, but now it can boast incredible efficiency as well.
So what are the ratings? Through city streets the Canyon Diesel will consume 10.8 l/100km while on the highway only 7.7 l/100km, making a combined fuel efficiency of 9.4 l/100km. This is just for 2-wheel drive models, as 4-wheel drive models will take a bit of a hit but still be incredibly efficient at a combined rating of 10.3 l/100km.
