I driven the diesel and the V6, both seem to be very adequate for my use.
Just doing a little research.
Love my 16 Canyon Mini Max..... Took delivery in March of '16
Only 21k in the 3 years. Avg mpg 24.5 with 30.4 avg speed over the life of the truck
My best over 450 miles is 27.6.
I do have over size tires which throws off my odometer by a few %
Only issues have been 2 emissions sensors... not an umcommon issue but did not effect any usage
Towing power is good, just what you'd expect from a small diesel and I get about 16 mpg while towing
DEF...not an issue.... uses very little
As noted in the other replies, it's no rocket!
I use it as my toad and a tow vehicle to tow about a 5k boat..
