The 2023 GMC Canyon introduces the model’s third generation. Its debut is announced to happen on August 11 at 11 a.m. Eastern Time.
The premiere of the 2023 GMC Canyon predictably follows shortly after the unveiling of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado. These two are twin models, apart from the fact the Canyon is positioned upmarket.
So, its next iteration should be more styling-wise and get a more upscale interior than Chevy’s pickup, with all their obvious similarities on the technical part.
We won’t be surprised to see the new Canyon receives the same (or similar) upgrades as the Colorado truck, including Multimatic shocks and Hill Descent Control.
We also expect the Canyon to tow up to 7,700 pounds due to a 2.7-liter turbo-four engine that delivers up to 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
This unit, by the way, powers the Chevrolet Silverado, and a number of drivers criticize it for being unrefined. Nevertheless, General Motors has decided to equip the 2023 Colorado and Canyon with this exact engine.
Ahead of the debut, GMC has teased the next-gen Canyon in an AT4X off-road trim that is analogous to the Colorado’s ZR2 trim by its content.
The new AT4X Edition 1 version (pictured) will be available to reserve upon the truck’s launch. It features a factory-lifted wider and higher stance, a bull bar, tow hooks, and off-road tires.
More detailed information will come on August 11, 2022, when the new GMC Canyon shows off.
