2023 GMC Canyon: What We Know And Expect21
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.
Production of the 2023 GMC Canyon will once again take place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri. Production is set to begin January 25th, 2023, as GM Authority exclusively covered previously.

I wonder if the GMC will have a chrome grill or be like the Chevy, no chrome no deal. Trucks and motorcycles can’t have to much chrome. Lol
Anyone under 50 would disagrre with the never enough chrome statement.
TRUE, I COME FROM A GM FAMILLY AND ARE DISAPPOINTED IN THE LACK OF CHROME
The off road trucks are black the Denali is chrome. Elevation sone chrome
Yet the Denali has painted bumpers. Slt and LTZ are th chromies.
I’m just wondering how much legroom will be in the back seats?
Currently it’s showing that the rear legroom shrunk by an inch and a little bit in the Colorado. Super disapointed with that, I was really hoping that they’d add a bit more room in the back. The full size trucks are too expensive and if they could make these guys about the same interior space as the GMT900 trucks, that would be a huge win. Doesn’t look to be the case though.
Is it going to get home link this time?
No, but as it is a GMC, you get compulsory OnStar.
Are the engines identical for the 3 tunes? If they are, something tells me 3rd parties are going to offer upgrades to get to the higher outputs.
Don’t know yet. GM has not released the details. There could be some differences as they have done on other turbo models. The biggest in compression.
Yes the aftermarket will be active on this as I also expect GM to offer an upgrade kit via GM performance parts like they did on the LNF.
I expect HUD in the Denali and AT4X
I buy my trucks to hunt, fish, and offroad. Lots of uses for trucks these days.
So glad they didn’t go with those oversized gaudy grills like in the new Sierra. The proportions look a lot better so far in the Canyon/Colorado.
Is the interior the same? Kinda hoping for a different center console setup, but I have been preferring Chevy exterior styling anyways.
This sounds trivial, but the new GM steering wheels are awesome. They haven’t been this good in trucks since the GMT800 days then they were terrible. K2xx were decent, but these new ones are great.
It’s the thing the driver sees and touches the most. Glad they’re starting to get it.
Is the interior the same – I don’t think so sense between the two now there is some difference so most likely the console setup will be different. What were you hoping for a center console setup – a larger or smaller one – one with no door – one with a door I am just curious because you didn’t elaborate? Many people post a comment but for some reason explain what they meant???? My 2021 has a decent center console setup but it could have come with an organizer to help customers organize things. If they had I most likely wouldn’t have felt the need to purchase an aftermarket one. But some people might not care if it had or didn’t have one. Not everyone always likes the same thing but here you get a choice between the Chevy or the GMC so what’s your beef? I prefer the GMC exterior styling anyways I just like it’s looks better over the Chevy but maybe some don’t care what I like? Have a great day and Thanks
Yeah i hope for some better cubby setup, the door setup on the current model is really not useful at all, my centre arm rest cubby is essentially a monthly work receipt holder. At least the receipts are in a “file”.
