Canyon vs. Sierra: Performance

  • Base Engine: A 200-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder comes standard on the GMC Canyon. The Sierra has a more powerful starting engine – the standard 285-hp 4.3L V6 engine.
  • Highest Power: At most, the Canyon delivers 308-hp from its 3.6L V6. The Sierra maxes out at 420 hp from its 6.2L V8. 
  • Diesel Option: A diesel option is available no matter which model you select. The Canyon can be equipped with a 2.8L Duramax Diesel with 369 lb-ft. The Sierra gives you a choice of a 3.0L Turbo Diesel that generates 460 lb-ft. 

When it comes to fuel economy figures, the two are also quite similar. If you need to tow heavy items to the Holly Springs jobsite, both trucks are ready for the challenge.
