The 2022 GMC Canyon is the eighth model year for the latest second-generation pickup nameplate, introducing only a few small updates and changes prior to the debut of the all-new third generation for the 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that 2022 GMC Canyon production will be extended by an additional two months.
Production of the 2022 GMC Canyon was originally slated to end in October of this year, with orders for the 2022 model year halted in July. Now, however, sources familiar with the matter indicate that production of the 2022 GMC Canyon will be extended by two months. As such, the final production date will be December 23rd, with the last order window set for the week of October 20th.
Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Canyon is currently only available with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine, which is rated at 308 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 275 pound-feet of torque. Although the 2022 GMC Canyon was previously available with two other engine options, including the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine and 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine, both these engines are no longer available for the pickup.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 GMC Canyon has been unavailable to order with the 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine since mid-November of last year, while the last 2022 GMC Canyon built with the 2.8L I4 LWN diesel engine rolled off the assembly line on July 4th.
Going forward, the 2023 GMC Canyon will introduce a completely overhauled third generation. The only powertrain offered will be the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which can also be found under the hood of the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 and refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, where it’s rated at 310 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 430 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm.
