The 2023 GMC Canyon is a capable pickup truck renowned for its impressive towing and hauling capacity. This is one model long known for its ability to perform as a durable workhorse. Learn about the numbers regarding towing limits and payload here.

Towing Capacity

The tow capacity varies depending on multiple factors, such as engine type, cab configuration, and trim. The maximum tow limit is 7,700 pounds.

To acquire this towing prowess, you’ll need to upgrade from the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine to the 2.8-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel engine. In addition, you’ll also need to upgrade your ride with the optional ProGrade Trailering System. This add-on features a system of 15 cameras to give you a comprehensive view of your surroundings.

The 7,700-pound tow capacity applies to all trims except for the AT4X trim. This variant has a slightly lower tow limit at 6,000 pounds. This is still more than enough for most trailering needs, including towing a small RV, construction machinery, or a pair of ATVs.

Payload Limit

As with towing capacity, the payload limit varies based on the same variables. The figures, though, do differ more based on trim.

For the max 1,640-pound payload, aim for the Elevation trim with two-wheel-drive. Other trims like the Denali have a more modest payload limit at 1,360 pounds. This is more than sufficient for most contract and carpentry needs, such as disposing debris or transporting commercial equipment.
