The 2022 GMC Canyon debuts the eighth model year for the latest second-gen midsize pickup, introducing a handful of updates and changes compared to the lightly updated 2021 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that 2022 GMC Canyon’s park assist feature constraint has been resolved.
According to GM Authority sources, the Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist feature (RPO code UD7) for the 2022 GMC Canyon is no longer under constraint, as of August 1st production. Availability of the park assist feature was limited since December 20th, 2021, as GM Authority covered previously.
The Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist feature is normally included as an optional upgrade for 2022 GMC Sierra Elevation Standard, Elevation, and AT4 trim levels. The feature is also normally included as standard for 2022 GMC Sierra Denali trim levels.
The 2022 GMC Canyon follows a light refresh introduced for the 2021 model year. Additionally, the 2022 Canyon is the final model year for the second-generation nameplate, with the all-new third-generation GMC Canyon slated to debut for the 2023 model year. A full reveal for the 2023 GMC Canyon is expected by August 11th, with GM recently teasing the next-gen pickup with a new close-cropped image.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 GMC Canyon received a price increase this year, which was applied to the pickup’s destination freight charge, now up $300 from $1,195 to $1,495. As such, all trim levels of the 2022 GMC Canyon are effectively $300 more expensive, regardless of configuration. With this price increase in place, the least-expensive 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 model, specifically the Extended Cab Elevation Standard trim with rear-wheel drive and 3.6L V6 LGZ engine, starts at $29,780, including DFC.
Per previous GM Authority coverage, production of the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine for the 2022 GMC Canyon ended July 4th. As a result, the 2022 Canyon is only available with either the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine, or the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine.
