2023 GMC Canyon ATX4 Teased21
General Motors has released the first official teaser image for the upcoming 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X.
With this teaser, GM has confirmed that the next-generation GMC Canyon will become the second vehicle in the GMC brand’s lineup to adopt the AT4X trim after it was rolled out on the 2022 GMC Sierra earlier this year. It offered minimal details on the truck in the press release, only mentioning the off-road equipment that’s already visible in the sole provided teaser image.
“The next-generation Canyon AT4X signals the next chapter for GMC’s mid-size truck with the teaser previewing the Canyon AT4X’s badging, rocker protectors and 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels,” the automaker said.
We expect the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X to offer similar equipment to the current Chevy Silverado ZR2. That could mean the presence of the innovative MultiMatic DSSV dampers, which also appear on the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4X and 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2, along with front and underbody skid plates and rock rails. A 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X prototype that GM Authority spied last July appeared to be equipped with these MultiMatic-developed dampers and also featured a set of rather large 33-inch 285/70R17 tires.
As GM Authority was first to report, the 2023 GMC Canyon will ride on an updated version of GM’s current GMT-31XX midsize body-on-frame architecture, which is expected to be referred to as 31XX-2. The vehicle will get an all-new exterior and interior, along with an all-new powerplant in the form of the turbocharged 2.7L I-4 L3B gasoline motor currently offered in the Sierra 1500. In that application, the boosted four is rated at a healthy 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque. GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission will handle shifting duties.
The next generation of GMC’s midsize pickup truck will also adopt GM’s new Global B electrical architecture – otherwise known as Vehicle Intelligence Platform, or VIP. Besides allowing for over-the-air (OTA) updates, Global B will also enable GM to utilize the latest in infotainment and active safety technologies in the pickup.
The 2023 GMC Canyon, including the Canyon AT4 and AT4X model variants, will continue to be built at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri alongside the closely-related 2023 Chevy Colorado. GM invested $1 billion into the facility back in 2019 specifically to prepare it to build the next-gen midsize pickups.
The 2023 GMC Canyon, including the new AT4X variant, will debut this summer.

I hope they don’t put that reflector/light that’s on the fender flare on the Colorado. Otherwise, from what I can see it looks like it’ll be an awesome truck.
It looks incredible! Can’t wait to see the whole thing.
Looks like a marker light in the flair. It is like the HD light.
looks badass. very rugged. I’m just glad gmc is finally building a good offroader. – with the exception of the hummer.
This should be made in china, maybe it would have decent build quality then.
Why is the most important image in this article the lowest quality?
LOL these down votes… Just go to GMC’s instagram page and you instantly get a higher quality picture than here on GMA. GMA really needs to link or provide the higher quality pictures.
I think this thing will look awesome but I’ll still never buy something smaller than a 3/4 ton!
Maybe you should set your sights on buying your first car versus limiting yourself to such a large truck.
I have cars and trucks.
Sounds like powerwheels…
Your title should say AT4X not ATX4
Looks great for what we can see. Very anxious for the reveal and when we can place an order !!!
Down-vote bots and trolls are out in full force 🥴
Pinecones down-vote below ⬇
It’s so weird how only a very select few people on here complain about downvotes. You guesst, nebula and 2 more nobody else complains. Look at C8.R that man gets downvoted all the time but he doesn’t care.
Teased? Come on GM when are you going to compete with the Wrangler and Bronco? Now Ford has the Maverick (mini Ranchero), what a great idea where’s the mini ElCamino?
Teased? What are you waiting for? When is GM going to compete with the Wrangler and Bronco? Now there’s the Maverick (mini Ranchero), where’s the mini El Camino?? C’mon GM wake up!!!!
They don’t need to compete with the wrangler and bronco, that would be a short term and costly hype vehicle in a changing market to a smaller demographic. The maverick competitor would do well though and fill a needed market that is underserved.
GM needs more older voices internally instead of all kids making the decisions for what is cool and what gets built.
Ironic, since it wasn’t that long ago that all the decisions at GM were being made by out-of-touch Boomers.
