General Motors is giving its new GMC Canyon one important update for the 2016 model year.
That single important update is the addition of the 2.8L Four-Cylinder Turbo-Diesel Duramax engine. The motor will become available late in the 2016 model year, and ordering it will also add an exhaust brake and an integrated trailer brake controller.
In addition, the SLE Convenience Package and the SLT trim level will now have the rear-sliding rear window as standard equipment.
Here are the official RPO-level changes:
- (LWN) 2.8L Duramax Turbo-Diesel, DI, 4-cylinder engine (Late availability); includes (K40) exhaust brake and (JL1) integrated trailer brake controller
- (A28) rear-sliding window is now standard on SLT and included in (PCN) SLE Convenience Package
The scant amount makes sense given that the Canyon, along with platform mate Chevy Colorado, were brand new for the 2015 model year
