The 2022 GMC Canyon is the eighth model year of the second-generation vehicle, introducing a few small changes and updates over the previous 2021 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 GMC Canyon is no longer available to be ordered with two specific exterior paint colors.
The two paint colors in question are Hunter Metallic, paint code GED, and Cayenne Red Tintcoat, paint code GSK. Cayenne Red Tintcoat was an extra $645, and was offered on 2022 GMC Canyon Elevation, AT4 and Denali trim levels, but not the Canyon Elevation Standard. Meanwhile, Hunter Metallic cost an extra $495 and was only available on the Denali trim level.
The 2022 GMC Canyon follows a light update introduced for the 2021 model year, with the former ushering in only small changes and updates, such as the addition of all-weather floor liners and the new Denali Black Edition Package exclusively for the Denali trim level. Additionally, wireless phone charging is now an available option for Denali trims, rather than standard equipment, while AT4 trims in the Crew Cab / Short Box body style are now equipped with a standard 17-inch by 8-inch gloss-Black aluminum spare wheel.
As a reminder, the 2022 GMC Canyon offers the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 275 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, and the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 181 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 369 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. The Canyon was also previously offered with the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, rated at 200 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 191 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm, but, as GM Authority covered previously, the 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine is no longer available to order with the 2022 GMC Canyon.
