The revised 2021 GMC Canyon, which debuted earlier this year, introduced a number of changes to the popular truck. The most obvious change is the larger new grille and restyled front fascia, with smaller changes including the addition of the new off-road-oriented AT4 trim level to replace the All Terrain model, new exterior colors and a revised trim-level structure.
The online configurator gives us a better idea of all the new changes applied to the pickup for the 2021 model year. Many potential Canyon buyers will be interested in the new AT4 trim level, which is available with Crew Cab Short Box and Crew Cab Long Box body configurations. The AT4 trim is also offered with either a cloth or leather interior, with leather upholstery carrying a $1,800 premium. AT4 models feature aggressive Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires, an automatic locking rear differential with a two-speed AutoTrac transfer case and a trim-specific off-road suspension package with Advanced Hill Descent Control.
Our example 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 configuration is wearing the new Desert Sand exterior color, while the Extended Cab, base-level Elevation model is sporting the new Dynamic Blue Metallic hue. Cayenne Red Tintcoat, a darker metallic red color, also joins the Canyon’s color pallette for 2021.
The 2021 GMC Canyon will also be offered in Denali trim for the 2021 model year, of course. Denali models receive a chrome grille, additional chrome exterior trim, 20-inch diamond-cut machined aluminum wheels, LED lights, a standard Driver Alert Package, heated and ventilated seats and other upscale add-ons. Our truck also has the available 20-inch low-gloss black aluminum wheels – a rather pricy $2,395 option.
A number of new packages are also offered on the Canyon for 2021, including a Power Package, which adds a performance air intake and cat-back exhaust, and a Performance Skid Plate package that adds front and mid-section underbody skid plates.
