GM unveiled the all-new third-generation 2023 GMC Canyon earlier this month, showing off the pickup’s new exterior styling and overhauled cabin space, as well as debuting a new powertrain, new tech goodies, and the AT4X off-roader. Now, GM Authority has exclusive photos of the new 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation.
The photos you see here are in fact the very-first shots of the 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation anywhere, as GM has yet to even release press photos of this particular trim level. For those readers who may be unaware, the 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation is the entry-level trim of the lineup, slotting in below the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4. The GMC Canyon Elevation Standard was deleted for the 2023 model year, making the Canyon Elevation the new entry-level trim.
Up front, we see the revised fascia design introduced with the latest third generation, including a large rectangular grille section and thin upper lighting signatures that lead into vertical lighting elements stretched down along the perimeter. As we see here, the 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation incorporates a simple black grille insert design and bright red GMC badging mounted high and center.
Moving over to the profile, we see the 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation riding on standard 18-inch wheels with a black finish for the six-spoke design. Also notable are the Gloss Black mirror caps and body-colored door hands, while an Elevation badge is located low on the front doors.
Finally, the rear view shows C-shaped taillight housings, as well as a single exhaust pipe that terminates just behind the passenger-side rear tire.
As a reminder, the entirety of the 2023 GMC Canyon lineup is equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine. Although the 2.7L I4 L3B is available in multiple states of tune under the hood of the 2023 GMC Canyon’s corporate cousin, the 2023 Chevy Colorado, the all-new Canyon is available exclusively in the top 2.7L Turbo High Output tune, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
