Recently bought an '18 ZR2 Diesel. Love it so far. Only a couple thousand miles but around 26 MPG on the highway and 22 in mixed driving around town. Haven't had it off road yet. Looking forward to it!

Cabin is a good size for a big guy with plenty of room in the back seat (I'm 6'3" and 250).

ONLY complaint so are is the tiny bed but figured I'd pay that price for the ZR2 crew.

This summer I towed my small Airstream 8,000 miles on a trip up into Canada (what a beautiful country, at least in summer). Got about 15 mpg towing at 65. I have towed horses a lot in large trailers (40') with various trucks, up to a Freightliner. The Canyon is well designed, has excellent braking and cooling, and has a very quiet cab. I like to listen to music on long drives and can actually hear it well in the Canyon. This week my DEF pump went out which was replaced under warranty at 18,600 miles. Hopefully, this is not a common occurrence. Overall, this is one very nice truck and I hope to keep it a long time.


How much does your airstream weigh, and how long is it?

I have yet to take a trip long enough for a real test of highway MPG, but in regular bombing around the area, 20+ or_ with a lead foot.
