2016 GMC Canyon Edmonton AB
If you’ve happened to read anything else on our website about the GMC Canyon, you would know that it was hands down one of the most talked about vehicles of last year after the small truck made its return to the GMC lineup after a several year hiatus. This year the 2016 GMC Canyon in Edmonton AB won’t be going through any big overhaul or anything considering it just debuted last year, it will however receive a few noteworthy upgrades, one in particular that is making the new Canyon just as talked about as last year.
What’s new in the 2016 GMC Canyon?
Some of the smaller upgrades for the 2016 model year midsize truck include things like the rear window’s ability to slide now being standard on SLT trim levels and included in the SLE Convenience Package, as well as there being a greatly enhanced GMC IntelliLink within the display audio system that features Apple CarPlay capability and may eventually come to include Android Auto as well. But these small updates pale in comparison to the biggest bit of news: the 2.8L Duramax Diesel turbocharged engine that will be available later in the model year!
The 2.8L Duramax Diesel engine will be accompanied by various other technologies and features like a standard Hydra-Matic 6L50 6-speed automatic transmission system, which works hand in hand with a Centrifugal Pendulum Vibration Absorber inside of the torque converter in order to both reduce the noise and vibration of the powertrain, a smart diesel exhaust brake system designed to give drivers better control over the vehicle, an integrated trailer brake controller and an electronically controlled 2-speed transfer case for the 4-wheel drive Canyons. If you’re interested in a new 2016 GMC Canyon of your own, be sure to start scheduling your test drive now to be one of the first to get in the driver’s seat.
