GM To Introduce The 2023 GMC Canyon For The First Time In Mexico9
General Motors has just announced that it will introduce the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon in Mexico, marking the first time GMC’s midsize pickup has been officially launched and marketed in the Latin American country.
GM’s Mexican subsidiary took advantage of the world debut of the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon on August 11th to announce that it plans to introduce the redesigned model during the next year in the local market, where the nameplate has never been available until now. As such, the 2023 Canyon will follow in the footsteps of the all-new 2023 Chevy Colorado, also just confirmed for Mexico.
Notably, Mexico becomes the second new export market for the 2023 GMC Canyon that the automaker has confirmed to expand the international reach of the midsize pickup that was exclusive to the United States and Canada. In April, GM also announced that it will introduce the GMC Canyon for the first time in the Middle East – where GMC has a significant presence and brand recognition.
The all-new third-generation 2023 GMC Canyon will arrive in Mexico with an overhauled exterior and interior design, set to position itself at the top of the midsize truck segment as the most advanced and premium model in its class, offering off-road capabilities as standard in all its versions. In particular, it highlights the launch of the first Canyon AT4X as the pinnacle of premium off-roader in the category.
Mechanically, all versions of the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon will be equipped with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B engine, which in high-output tune develops 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, making it the most potent gasoline engine in its class. It’s mated exclusively to GM’s new-generation 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission.
The all-new 2023 GMC Canyon is expected to be first introduced in Mexico sometime next year, several months after the new-generation model officially arrives in the U.S. market in early 2023. Exact arrival date, packages, trim levels and pricing of the 2023 Canyon for the Mexican market will be revealed closer to its local launch.

The estimated MSRP of the 1st edition 2023 Canyon is $63,350. That is insane. Sold my GM stock because they are going to put themselves out of business with these high prices.
Will be a low seller there.
The Canyon was sold in Mexico from 2007-2012 . They just skipped the 2nd Gen.
Well I was appalled at the price of the GMC when I saw the AT4X till I got more information.
#1 The Major high price is only on the AT4X and it comes loaded with many things with few if any options.
#2 The rest of the GMC line will start at $40K where the AT4 is now and the Denali at $46K just $1,000 over the present truck. They will all come with the most powerful engine as standard, All will be at least 2″ higher than the Chevy and most will have more standard options than the Chevy and features you can’t get in a Chevy.
Most GMC models will be between $40K to about $55K max.
The Chevy line will start much cheaper and offer more options that can be added or deleted. Also value packages. You may not get a HUD option but you will get a sun roof option and a better interior. You can move up models to get bigger engines and taller suspensions.
This is about choices and you can chose if you want a loaded up truck and or optioned up one.
The AT4X is just the odd one out and I expect GM does not expect it to be a high volume model. The ZR will be cheaper and more volume or the AT4 or TrailBoss.
Also to note the Ranger has been much more expensive already. I saw a Tremor sticker for more than I paid for my Denali. It did not even have leather seats.
It only the First Edition ATX4 that is so high prices. It has a ton of options that probably add 5-10k on the top of base AT4x. AT4x will probably be in line with the Denali in base pricing. Maybe a little more because of the shocks.
Bingo. You’re probably looking at a base Denali at around $50k. That’s more than $20k less than a base Sierra Denali. It’s high but you’re getting a well optioned, very nicely finished truck at that price. If you don’t want to spend that much money, go for a lower model or get the Chevy.
It will do well over there as the ones that can afford it often buy a higher trim model. They already have the Ford Ranger Raptor (yes) and both Tacoma and Helix are sold in the region.
gm just liquidated production here in the US to sell in Mexico so I’m sure 120 days and empty dealer lots will continue for 2023 gm…. Advertise the new generation and continue with old generation mindset thinking with 3-6 trucks at the dealers…
Who cares about the gm price, limited dealer quantity will drive up prices. Swindlers.
Why doesn’t GM keep their vehicles on US soil until they have enough chips and other parts to build complete trucks for us? Apparently, GM wants this 6-12 month vehicle delivery delay to go on as long as possible- maybe to keep driving the price up to the point that they price themselves out of business!? I’ve been waiting 1 1/2 years to get an AT4, and now I’m starting to look at other options- can you say RAM, Fjord, Toiletota 🤮 I may need to look for a different code-name in the future.
