Default Working Review of the 2016 GMC Canyon Diesel: Tons of Power, Amazing MPGs

I recently had a chance to spend a week driving the 2016 GMC Canyon with the 2.8L Duramax diesel engine and during that time, I found that the diesel Canyon is by far the most fuel efficient truck sold in America while also being the hardest working small truck I have tested thus far.

When General Motors introduced their new 2.8L Duramax diesel engine for the Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon, it was touted as a super-efficient engine with solid working abilities. These two trucks – particularly with this new diesel engine – have won all sorts of awards, but I was curious to see how this small truck with a tiny turbo diesel engine would stand up to my real world tests. After all, with “just” 181 horsepower and 369lb-ft of torque, this is one of the least powerful trucks I have tested, but in the end, I was surprised by how well the diesel Canyon works – and how it got crazy high fuel economy numbers when I wasn’t towing or hauling.
