GM recently released a fresh teaser image for the next-generation 2023 GMC Canyon, priming the midsize pickup’s debut scheduled for August 11th. Now, we’re rounding up all the latest info on what we know and expect with regard to the upcoming 2023 GMC Canyon.
The big headline with regard to the 2023 GMC Canyon trim level lineup is the debut of the new 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X, an even more-capable off-roader set to slot in above the “standard” GMC Canyon AT4, serving as GMC’s equivalent to the Chevy Colorado ZR2. The AT4X will also offer the exclusive First Edition Package, which will likely include a range of standard equipment and unique cosmetic changes.
With the new AT4X, the 2023 GMC Canyon model lineup will list out as Elevation Standard, Elevation, AT4, AT4X, and Denali.
The third-gen GMC Canyon will debut extensive styling revisions for the the exterior, including a large grille and horizontal LED headlights for the front fascia. The next-gen GMC Canyon may also feature the MultiPro tailgate and CornerStep rear bumper, although high-end variants could replace the CornerStep with trailering cameras instead, similar to the 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2. Additionally, the 2023 GMC Canyon may add in the same tailgate storage bin as the 2023 Colorado, rebranded as StowPro for GMC.
Inside, the 2023 GMC Canyon will boast a fully overhauled cabin, taking a design nod from the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500. Additionally, the new Canyon will offer a wealth of safety tech features, and it may be the first midsize pickup to offer the GM Super Cruise system.
Similar to the 2023 Chevy Colorado, the 2023 GMC Canyon will feature just one powertrain option, namely the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which will be offered in multiple states of tune. These include the base 2.7L Turbo tune with 237 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque, which will have its own RPO code, as well as the 2.7L Turbo Plus tune, rated at 310 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, and finally, the 2.7L Turbo High-Output tune, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The updated GM 8-speed automatic transmission will be the only transmission available.
Under the skin, the 2023 GMC Canyon will ride on an updated version of the GM GMT 31XX platform, just like the 2023 Chevy Colorado.
The 2023 GMC Canyon will debut on August 11th. GM will begin taking customer reservations for the new Canyon AT4X equipped with the First Edition package immediately following the truck’s reveal.
Expect a similar pricing structure as the current GMC Canyon model lineup, starting around $27,000 for lower trims and ranging up to $44,000 or more for the top trims.
