The 2022 GMC Canyon is the eighth model year of the current second-gen pickup nameplate, with a brand-new third-generation model set to arrive for the 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the turbodiesel Duramax engine option for the 2022 GMC Canyon has been built out for the remainder of the model year.
According to GM Authority sources, production of the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine for the 2022 GMC Canyon ended on July 4th. As a result, the 2022 GMC Canyon is no longer available to order with the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine. That said, it is still possible to purchase a new diesel-powered 2022 GMC Canyon among units that are either in transit or in stock.
The 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine is rated at 181 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 369 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm, connecting to the GM Hydra-Matic 6L50 MYB six-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, 2022 GMC Canyon customers can still get the pickup with one of two gasoline engine options. These include either the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, or the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, rated at 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque.
Looking ahead, production of the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon is expected to ramp up in January of the 2023 calendar year, with the next-gen model introducing revised exterior styling for the front and rear fascias, as well as new wheel designs. The 2023 GMC Canyon will also debut the new Canyon AT4X off-roader, which will slot in above the “standard” GMC Canyon AT4 with regard to the trim level lineup. The 2023 GMC Canyon will feature only one powerplant option, specifically the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine.
