GMC Canyon Oil Capacity

The second-generation GMC Canyon mid-size pickup has been in production since 2014 and is only sold in the US and Canada markets. The car is similar to the Chevrolet Colorado model but differs from it in improved trim and richer equipment.

GMC Canyon is equipped only with automatic transmissions: the version with a “six” – an eight-speed “automatic”, the rest of the options – a six-speed. The drive can be rear or full.


How Much Oil Does a GMC Canyon Take?

The 2021 GMC Canyon with the 3.6L 6-cyl engine (engine code LGZ) takes 6 quarts (with filter) of 0W-30 synthetic oil. The GMC Canyon with a 2.5L 4-cyl engine (engine code LCV) takes 5 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

  1. Just changed the oil in my 2021 Caynon 6 cyl, put in six quarts but the dipsick shows it’s 3/4 of a quart low. I think I should add more, or should I leave it

      It’s ok, you should keep it.
