The 2022 GMC Canyon is the eighth model year for the second-generation pickup, offered as the final model year before the arrival of an all-new third generation for the 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned when the last units of the 2022 GMC Canyon diesel will roll off the line.
According to GM Authority source, the last production week for the 2022 GMC Canyon diesel is scheduled for July 4th. Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Canyon diesel is equipped with the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 181 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 369 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm, connecting to the GM 6-speed manual transmission.
Looking ahead, the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine will be dropped from the GMC Canyon lineup after the 2022 model year, with the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon slated to offer only one powertrain option, namely the 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine. In GM’s current pickup truck lineup, including the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 and refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, the four-cylinder L3B is rated at 310 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 430 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm.
To note, the 2022 GMC Canyon is also available with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 275 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, connecting to the GM 8-speed automatic transmission. The Canyon is no longer available with the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, as GM Authority covered previously.
Looking ahead, the 2023 GMC Canyon will debut a complete model overhaul for the pickup nameplate, introducing a new exterior design, overhauled interior, heavily revised platform, and new safety technology features.
