Whether you want a truck for work or play, you need it to have enough power to transport your trailer, tools, or other gear. U.S. News & World Report has recognized the 2021 GMC Canyon and 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 on its 13 Most Powerful Light-Duty Pickup Trucks in 2021 for their strong engine options.
2021 GMC Canyon
The Canyon offers three engine options, including a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. Its 2.8-liter turbo-diesel not only produces 369 lb-ft of torque but also allows the truck to tow up to 7,700 pounds with the proper equipment. U.S. News notes that the Canyon is easy to handle and makes for smooth rides too.
2021 GMC Sierra 1500
Choose between several powertrains for the Sierra 1500. The strongest is a 6.2-liter V8 that reaches 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, giving the truck the strength to 11,800 pounds when properly equipped. It also has a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel, which puts out a best-in-class 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. According to U.S. News, the Sierra 1500 also stands out with its reliable safety tech and unique style.
GMC recently debuted the 2021 Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition. This new edition is better equipped to handle rough paths, trail obstacles, and the other challenges of going on off-roading adventures.
The AT4 Off-Road Performance Package includes performance front and mid skid plates to protect the truck’s lower radiator, steering gear, oil pan, and front differential when driving on rocky trails. The off-road rocker panel protector and spray-in bedliner further keep the truck safe and in good condition.
The special edition takes away the truck’s front air dam and adds a 1-inch suspension leveling kit. This allows the pickup to reach an impressive approach angle of roughly 30 degrees, which is more than a 35-percent improvement.
All-weather floor liners keep the cabin cleaner when traveling, while 17-inch gloss-Black aluminum wheels give the Canyon a more aggressive look. Carbon Black AT4 badges and a gloss Black performance exhaust tip make the truck stand out more on drives.
With or without the AT4 Off-Road Performance Package, the Canyon AT4 comes with 31-inch GoodYear® Wrangler DuraTrac® tires and the 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. Its off-road-tuned suspension package and Advanced Hill Descent Control System also create comfortable and smooth rides.
