I have a 2017 Canyon and was messing around with the driver information settings and found the engine hours. The truck gets driven almost exclusively on long vacation trips as I have a company car I drive unless I am on vacation leave.

The Canyon has about 37,000 miles and 765 engine hours. I’m curious to see what others are at on those numbers. Mind posting them?

Can’t say how many hours, pushing 48k though. I have an 18 zr2 it’s been a great truck. I’ve done everything with this truck.... 4 wheeled, rock crawled, towed our trailer at least 20k and even jumped by accident once. It hasn’t been problem free though. Even with its issues it’s still 10 times the truck than any Toyota.... trust me on this, I’ve owned one of those rough riding gutless turds!

2019 Bison with 31000 miles - approx 1000 hours on the Engine. Purchased new in March 2019 and have had no issues. I have recently added 33" Nitto Ridge Grappler tires with no lift or leveling kit - slight rub on front lower corners on some bumps while turning. I recently ordered kit from AEV to mod fenders - its sort of cheesy but will attempt the install over the holidays. Youtube has a clip on this mod. I tested, drove and almost purchased Tacoma but could not handle the up/down shifting. The ZR2 package suspension is state of the art and nothing compares in this class of truck. Very satisfied with this Chevrolet - honestly its much better than my expectations. Fuel eco is around 20-21 with the 33" tires combined city/hwy. Changed fuel filters at 25k - simple

2016 Z71 crew cab with 138K miles. I will have to see if I can find the hour meter. Purchased certified used in 2017 with 26K miles. I drive 68 miles daily one way to work. I have a level kit on the front and upsized the 17" tires one size with Nitto Grappler II. I have run Duramax Tuner since I bought the truck, My only issues with the truck is it has always used oil ( about a quart in 3-4000 miles) and dealer would do nothing about it. otherwise just did the emission recall and now have P2495 code for soot regen frequency. Ordered a new Soot filter sensor to replace. Otherwise love the truck. average 25-27 MPG and has been a solid truck.

Like it a lot. part of reason I looked for 2016. have the 4 selection switch and can change tune on the fly. Also have the transmission tune. Can tell a difference the couple times I put factory tune back for dealer service. I saw a little improvement in milage but the torque is very noticeable. I mainly run economy mode for my daily drive 68 miles one way to work mostly highway. I also tow a Boy Scout trailer a couple times a year and run the tow tune. Use that hauling mulch and dirt in my truck. Over all happy with the truck and Duramax Tuner.

Hit 68k miles today and engine hours are at 2430. 2017 Canyon I purchased new at the end of 2017 for a small discount. Love the truck but hate the dealership. i've never seen the check engine light on or had any major issues (knock on wood). I just use good fuel, good def, and oil change every 5k or sooner. The truck has spent it's entire life outside in the Sierra Nevada mountain range and it's stood up to the elements great so far.

I'm at 26000 miles on my 2019 z71 and the only problem so far is it wouldn't start when it was like -10 out one day, plugged it into a starter at the hotel I was at and eventually it did crank but that was the only problem I've ever had normally it doesn't get that cold where I live and the hotel didn't offer to allow me to use the heat core on the truck bastards
