General Motors has released a new video showing the GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Concept taking on some backcountry trails, giving us our first glimpse of this new mid-size pickup concept in action.
The GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Concept debuted during the Overland Expo Mountain West 2021 event in Loveland, Colorado last month. This concept is designed to explore the limits of the capable Canyon AT4 platform with a variety of off-road-focused upgrades, including sturdy cast-iron control arms, MultiMatic DSSV Dampers, front and rear electronic locking differentials, additional underbody protection, a heavy-duty front bumper with a winch, wheel flares with integrated task lamps and off-road rocker panel protectors. A set of 17-inch AEV Crestone wheels shod in 33-inch BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tires complete the list of off-road upgrades and contribute to the concept’s impressive 27.7-degree approach angle and 10-inch ground clearance.
This new video shows the GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Concept driving on a muddy trail before the driver stops to set up camp near a river. This allows GMC to highlight the vehicle’s various camping-related upgrades, which include a pop-up rooftop tent, a 270-degree retractable awning, jerry cans for gasoline and water, a solar panel, a cooler and kitchenette, a stainless steel truck bed cap and a truck bed storage unit with a drawer system. As a reminder, power in the GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX comes from a stock 3.6L LGZ V6 engine and GM eight-speed automatic transmission, which send power to all four wheels.
As GM Authority reported previously, GM is currently developing a new Canyon AT4-X model, which will integrate many of the components from the off-road-focused Chevy Colorado ZR2, including MultiMatic DSSV dampers. The GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Concept likely serves as a precursor to this future Canyon variant, which we expect to make its debut sometime next year. For now, check out the video embedded below to see the OVRLANDX Concept in action.
