The 2021 GMC Canyon arrives as the seventh model year for the pickup truck’s second generation, bringing with it a light update for the exterior, interior, powertrain, and technology offerings. The latest 2021 Canyon also introduces major changes to the trim level structure, and now, GM Authority has learned how GM expects the new trim lineup to sell in terms of overall percentages.
As a refresher, the 2021 GMC Canyon trim level structure no longer follows the usual SL, SLE, SLT, Denali trim level cadence. Now, the new Elevation Standard and Elevation trims occupy the bottommost rungs of the structure, while the All-Terrain is replaced outright by the AT4. The SLT trim is deleted without replacement, while the Denali maintains its spot at the top of the heap.
Now, according to documents provided to dealers and seen by GM Authority, General Motors expects the following mix with regard to sales for the 2021 GMC Canyon, as based on national averages:
|Trim Level||Percentage Of Sales|
|Elevation Standard and Elevation (combined)||43 percent|
Essentially, General Motors expects the two base trims (Elevation Standard and Elevation) to comprise just 43 percent of new GMC Canyon sales, while the two high-spec trim levels (AT4 and Denali) are expected to make up a whopping 57 percent of sales.
Clearly, the new 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 is seen as the big mover and shaker here, which isn’t all too surprising considering the widespread popularity of the off-roader segment these days. GMC has already announced that every model in its lineup will have an AT4 variant by 2021 (with the exception of the GMC Savana), so applied to something like the 2021 GMC Canyon, the enthusiasm is understandable.
