Here’s A Closer Look At The 2023 GMC Canyon Headlights17
General Motors is developing an all-new third generation for the GMC Canyon pickup nameplate, set to debut for the 2023 model year. Now, we’re taking a closer look at what the 2023 GMC Canyon’s headlights will look like thanks to the following prototype model.
Although this 2023 GMC Canyon is draped in heavy camouflage that obscures the front end, there are still a few noteworthy details that we can pick out. The grille, for example, incorporates thin, horizontal slats that run across the width of the nose, with very thin slats up top and slightly thicker slats along the bottom.
Critically, the front end also shows off the 2023 GMC Canyon’s new headlight design. While the current Canyon uses a square headlight housing with horizontal lighting signatures along the top and bottom, the third-gen Canyon looks to utilize a stacked, vertical design that more closely resembles that of the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500.
The new GMC Canyon headlight design incorporates LED lighting signatures along the outer edge of the housings that double as amber turn indicators, as seen with this particular prototype model, which is signaling to turn left.
As for the trim level, this 2023 GMC Canyon prototype looks to mix both Denali and off-roader elements. The grille design has a Denali-esque mesh, while in the sides, we see running boards that appear to be a bit out of place for something ready to hit the trails. At the same time, the front bumper looks like it has a good amount clearance to it, while in the corners, this prototype is running Bridgestone Dueller A/T RH-S rubber, a compound that’s a bit more aggressive than the current Canyon Denali’s Bridgestone Dueller H/L Alenza tires.
Either way, the new look should go a long way to establish the next-gen 2023 GMC Canyon in the pickup segment. Further updates will include an overhauled interior, while under the hood, the pickup will be offered with just a single powerplant option, namely the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine. Under the revised body panels will be an upgraded version of the GMT31XX platform, while production will take place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.

GM….just reveal them already!!!
How much larger of a cab are we expecting to have on this new model compared the the current? I”m interested in it compared to the current if it is larger. On top of that, if they’re able to keep the pricing similar to what it is now, hands down I’d get it over a Sierra. Right now a comparable Denali Diesel Canyon is $21,000 than a Diesel Sierra Denali or AT4. 21grand is a big difference.
The cabs are going to be similar in size.
As for pricing it will be like everything else slightly higher but expect more content.
The Denali Canyon Diesel is not $21 more then the Full size diesel even in just a Sierra Diesel in any form. Also the Diesel appears to gone from the Canyon.
In canada a Denali Diesel Canyon Long Box is 56,000 a Sierra AT4 Diesel Premium is 77,000. So yeah, 21,000 difference. In the States that gap might be closer, but up here we get roasted on price.
I noticed my typo. I missed “less” than a Sierra.
Ok that makes better sense! I agree with that.
I am good with the cab sizes staying similar, if they can squeeze out another inch or so out of the rear seats with some thinner seats and better packaging that would help, but if not it is good enough for our usage. Main thing is keep the Crew Cab Long Bed model.
C8, how much mulch do you think it can carry, I value your opinion?
But what do you think about the headlights, this is what this article is about?
Yes, there’s a $20k price difference but you’re comparing a model that’s more than 5 years old to something that’s brand new.
Now look at all the content that is included/available on the Sierra versus the Canyon. Significant power increase, substantially more safety systems. The latest technology in the infotainment screen and digital dash. HUD sunroof, If many of those features were available for the canyon, your price would jump significantly.
While the next canyon will be similar in size, don’t be surprised if certain models have a significant increase in pricing. The new added options for the canyon will increase the price I’d wager a loaded canyon will be at least $5k more than what the old version came to.
That’s with additional options, base prices will start maybe $500-$1000 more than prior model years trim for trim. They aren’t going to add 5k to the base price, it will steer away many buyers.
I agree the Pro and Elevation models will have a $500-1000 increase. But Denali and AT4 will be at least $2k. The sierra just saw $5k price increases for those two models in base form to provide some perspective.
I hope there is a smaller truck in the works somewhere. With gasoline prices you may as well be driving a full size with this offering. And I hope it’s not made south of the border like Ford’s and Chrysler’s upcoming offering, although so far Chrysler’s is only going to be sold in South America from what i have read.
Come on C8, what’s your opinion of the headlights? You always seem to have something to say no matter how trivial, cat got your tongue?
Nothing says garbage like a premature rusted out frame on a chevy colorado. You couldn’t pay me enough money to buy this thing. Looks like a full size gas guzzling waste of money.
Rusted out frame? Think you have that confused with Toyota. One thing GM isn’t known for is rust frame failures. They may have a little surface rust but the dunking in the oil based protection film is superior and has been proven but the many decades successful use. There is a reason they are resistant to changing away, while it may not be the cleanest to work on or prettiest, it certainly does its job in protection. Surface rust never hurt anyone here. So please, clearly state your source or just troll somewhere else with misinformation…
How dare you call me a troll! I have a 2008 Chevy Colorado that cost alot of hard earned money and here it sits in the back yard with a completely rusted out frame. Runs fine, looks good but absolutely totally useless. There is no recall, no parts available, no good advice. Just your total useless comment!
