GMC Canyon Towing Capacity & Engine Specs

All Canyon trucks are equipped with a 2.7L Turbomax engine. This 310-horsepower engine is paired with an eight speed-automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive. For drivers that take the road less traveled, we’d recommend a Canyon trim with four-wheel-drive, like the AT4, Denali, and Canyon AT4X models (Available as an add-on for Canyon Elevation). Here’s a complete breakdown of the GMC Canyon towing capability:

2.7L Turbomax Engine

  • 310 horsepower
  • 430 lb-ft of torque
  • Towing Capacity – 7,700 lbs (Capable of towing RVs, trailers, boats, and more)
