“A diesel engine was part of the Canyon’s portfolio plan from the beginning, meaning the chassis, suspension and other elements of its architecture were engineered to support it,” said Mr. Scott Yackley, assistant chief engineer.
He further added: “That means there are no compromises with the Canyon diesel. It offers exceptional capability delivered with a confident feeling of control. The new 2.8L Duramax was designed specifically for trucks and has undergone many of the same validation tests as the 6.6L Duramax offered in the GMC Sierra HD models, advancing the Duramax brand’s legacy of durability and reliability.”
