The 2020 GMC Canyon is available with a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine, good for 181 horsepower and a whopping 369 lb-ft of torque. The truck can tow up to 7,700 pounds when properly equipped — a class-leading number. A Trailering Package and a Tow/Haul mode for the automatic transmission comes with the available diesel engine, according to U.S. News & World Report writer, Nick Kurczewski.
“This raises or lowers shift points, depending on how much you’re hauling, and uses engine compression to assist with braking,” he adds.
The 2020 GMC Canyon facilitates towing heavy loads and provides modern connectivity through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

“The Sierra is a full-size pickup that delivers when it comes to long-distance comfort, spacious seating, and clever features like GMC’s MultiPro tailgate,” according to Kurczewski.
The available GMC MultiPro Tailgate features six functions and the cabin offers comfort features such as available heated front seats outfitted with leather accents. The available ProGrade Trailering System features a camera to make connecting easier and an in-vehicle Trailering App so you can access the tire pressure monitoring system, review your pre-departure to-do list, and review maintenance requirements.
