General Motors has introduced the next-generation GMC Canyon including a new AT4X off-road capable trim level.
The 2023 GMC Canyon has thrown off its covers. The official unveiling happened yesterday: the public could see the first-ever GMC Canyon AT4X Edition 1 Package that features serious off-road hardware, powerful capability, and an advanced high-tech cockpit.
Unlike the predecessor, the 2023 Canyon is wider, taller, comprehensively redesigned, comes without a front air dam, and with LED lighting. The manufacturer has improved the vehicle’s approach, departure, and breakover angles.
The cabin highlights an 8-inch digital instrument cluster as standard or an optional 11-inch one.
Other useful features include a head-up display, wireless Apple CarPlay / Android Auto, and the Google Built-in service. A standard Pro Safety Package and a more well-rounded Safety Plus Package are available as well.
A 2.7-liter four-cylinder I4 L3B gasoline engine is a base one offering one tune variant on the Canyon, unlike the Colorado sibling: Turbo High Output rated at 310 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque and mated either to a two- or all-wheel-drive system, depending on trim level.
This rugged version features an extra 1.0-inch lift over the rest of the range, Obsidian Rush colorway with Ceramic White accents, 33-inch MT tires, front and rear lockers, Multimatic DSSV dampers, a Baja drive mode, and underbody skid plates.
When the Edition 1 Package is added, the truck becomes even more off-road capable. This package includes specific badging, 17-inch Beadlock capable wheels, a performance front skid plate, a winch, a safari bar on an off-road bumper, a reconfigurable bed rail system, and underbody cameras.
The regular 2023 GMC Canyon will be built at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, preliminary beginning from January 25, 2023, while the Canyon AT4X’s production should commence next spring.
MSRP excluding a destination and handling charge, tax, other fees, and options will start around $40K. The 2023 Canyon AT4X Edition 1 costs $63,350, it is already available to pre-order.
