Here Is The 2023 GMC Canyon67
General Motors has unveiled the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon, pulling the sheets on a fresh third generation for the midsize pickup. Highlights include the reveal of the off-road capable 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X trim level, revised exterior styling, an overhauled cabin, a new powertrain, and a range of tech goodies.
Outside, the 2023 GMC Canyon is taller and wider than the previous generation, improving the pickup’s approach, departure, and breakover angles. The front air dam was also removed, while LED exterior lighting complements the fully refreshed exterior design.
Inside, we find an overhauled cabin design as well, with a standard 8-inch digital instrument cluster for Elevation and AT4 trims, and 11-inch instrument cluster for Denali and AT4X trims.
The 2023 GMC Canyon is offered with a wealth of tech features, including available underbody cameras, an available head-up display, and wireless Apple CarPlay / Android Auto compatibility. Google Built-in (Google Automotive Services) is also available. The tech stuff extends to safety features as well, with the standard Pro Safety Package adding in Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking with Bicyclist Detection, IntelliBeam auto high beams, Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision Alert. The Canyon Safety Plus Package is also available for even more safety tech.
Under the hood, the 2023 GMC Canyon is equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine. Although the L3B is available in multiple states of tune in the recently released, redesigned 2023 Chevy Colorado, the 2023 GMC Canyon is only available with the top 2.7L Turbo High Output tune, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
With regard to the drivetrain, the 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation is available with either 2WD or 4WD, while the AT4, AT4X, and Denali trim levels are equipped with 4WD as standard.
For those customers looking for maximum off-road capability, the new-for-2023 GMC Canyon AT4X features an extra one-inch lift over the rest of the line, as well as standard 33-inch MT tires, Multimatic DSSV dampers, front and rear lockers, underbody skid plates, and an exclusive Baja drive mode for high-speed driving on the rough stuff. Inside, the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X includes an Obsidian Rush colorway with Ceramic White accents.
The AT4X trim is also available with the highly limited Edition 1 package, which includes underbody cameras, an off-road bumper with a safari bar, a winch, 17-inch beadlock capable wheels, a reconfigurable bed rail system, a performance front skid plate, and Edition 1 badging.
The 2023 GMC Canyon is scheduled to hit production on January 25th, with the new AT4X trim set to roll off the line in the spring of 2023. Production will take place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri. The Canyon AT4X Edition 1 will start at $63,350 before the destination freight charge, and reservations are now open. The Canyon lineup will start at around $40,000 before DFC.

The interior of the Canyon is nicer than the Colorado.
GMC trucks are always one step ahead of its Chevrolet sister. GMC’s are considered to be slightly more refined and thus, receive nicer options on the lower models vs. their GM counterpart.
Except in the case of the 2022 Silverado and Sierra. I have the High Country and the interior is identical to the Denali in terms of materials etc except for the position of the nav display. Only the Denali Ultimate beats it.
My Dad has a 2021 High Country and I agree, the interior is, more or less, identical to the Denali. It is why my previous comment stated “lower models”. Read it again if need be.
It’s all the same, but you can believe what you want
They all come down the same line to roll out the same door.
Where’s the 2023 Chevy Colorado? It starts manufacturing January 25.
4 Thumbs down for a question, tough uninformed crowd here.
Maybe you should rephrase the question, there have been several articles featuring the new 2023 Colorado on this site, perhaps do some research before you call people uninformed. The Colorado already made it’s debut like 2 weeks ago.
GM 100% nailed it! This is one sharp looking truck. I’m certain that GM will sell tons of the new Colorado and Canyon.
The shot of the AT4X is amazing!
At least they changed the vents.
In the past, I thought the Canyon was much better looking than the Colorado, but in 2023, I think it’s the other way around.
The AT4X looks decent, if overdone. This white AT4 is mediocre, and I don’t like the Denali one bit.
On top of that GM announced a mandatory $1500 On Star Subscription with every GMC… no thank you! If they force that on Chevrolet, too, I’m going to have to start taking the ugly ass Ford Ranger seriously.
Here they go again with all those good safety features for a truck they are building to spend more time off the roads but can’t put those safety features in the Corvette! Tomg
Didn’t release the biggest news, it’s only available in the short box. Here’s an idea, put the standard box on the canyon.
It would have been very strange if the Canyon offered a different cabin or box.
They are the same truck.
Very happy to see that GM differentiated the two Interiors. As I stated yesterday, the Round Air Vents did not fit the GMC Brand in my opinion.
The round vents don’t fit Chevrolet either.
I think the designers were spot on with the Colorado/Canyon and are the perfect fit as the little brother/sister to the Silverado/Sierra. They each have their differences, but I love them both. I have a 2022 GMC Sierra AT4 and it was a tough decision not to get the Silverado ZR2. Not a mistake either way. I think which ever way somebody chooses with the new Colorado or Canyon will be happy.
It’s a great looking truck and very compelling. Interior finishes in the Denali and AT4x appear to be top notch and GMC is definitely going more upmarket.
I’m curious if the trim levels for the New Canyon will carry over to other GMC models. Meaning no more SLT and Pro. I kinda like the idea to help separate more from Chevy.
Pricing surprises me a bit as well. But you’re getting a lot for the money. Additionally you’re getting the high output engine regardless of model.
Oh, and best of all, I’m loving that they reduced the level of chrome on the Denali. Considering that includes the 2” lift, it would be my choice especially when looking at the interior.
Looks good! I like it, looking rugged and squared off. However I have a problem here, there are still not much product differentiation between the Canyon and Colorado. The Canyon gets the same tailgate that the Colorado has instead of a smaller version of the MultiPro tailgate from the Sierra. The Canyon’s interior is just a more upscale version of the Colorado’s interior. Why does the Canyon have to share the same single 2.7L turbo 4 as the Colorado? GM need to relearn their history and distance platform sharing vehicles of different brands from each other like what they used to do!
When did the trucks have more differentiation than they do now??
Looks and sounds like it will be quite expensive.
It just may be, but unlike the Hummer EV, you can negotiate to get that MSRP down a little or maybe even pay zero down.
Car and Driver says AT4X starts at “$64,000 plus”. For that price, there should be more than a 4-banger under the hood. There should also be bed/body choices. It also seems to me gm needs a real Bronco competitor (not a silly $100,000 EV) and in the absence of that, they’ve had to focus these trucks primarily on the off-road market.
Personally I’d prefer a broader range of options, as they had in the past, to include a truck with greater bed capacity, a V-6, and more of a true Denali luxury truck variation.
The AT4X Edition 1 is priced at just under $64k. That includes the special bumper with a winch, headlock capable wheels and numerous other features that won’t be available on the AT4X or will be accessories. If you’re going to complain about price, consider alternatives and their pricing. A fully loaded Gladiator with added beadlock wheels and modified bumper with a winch is going to set you back $75k+ and won’t have the multinational shocks and less horsepower/torque.
Wow a special bumper gm is so innovating what a time to be alive.
I said “For that price, there should be more than a 4-banger under the hood.”. The Gladiator has two six-cylinder engine choices.
So you think it’s ok to spend more if you get more than one choice, even though those choices offer less horsepower and torque. Good thing it’s your money. Oh, and for more money on the Gladiator, you’ll get less refinement and plastic galore on the interior.
I’m sorry but anyone who calls themselves GMC Fan should never talk about plastic being used in any other car manufactures consider gm as a whole hold the title of cheap plastic interiors for decades and continue it today.
I said “For that price, there should be more than a 4-banger under the hood.” The Gladiator has two six-cylinder engine options.
Wow, great job GM, very rugged look on the outside with an Interior that looks awesome and appears to have a very upscale look.
It got Buick head lamps! Guess they are kinda like a hyper brand in the US being sold under same roof by same dealer.
Presenting Buick, like Hummer, as a GMC sub brand would probably juice sales.
Pricing will kill it if it is over $60k.
I love the truck but most buyers in this segment start drifting away at $40k.
I will just keep what I have. It is low miles and not worth paying that much.
The ZR was a great buy and well optioned for the money. For that much you may as well buy a full size.
No, the Full sizers are another 15% more expensive regardless, so it isn’t like you spend 4k more and you get a full size, you have to spend another 10-15k to get the full size. The AT4X Sierra is what, 78k? The Canyon will be probably under 60k, that isn’t “For that much you may as well buy a full size” price difference, that is approximately 25% more…
People always use that argument like it is 2004 when full size trucks were 25% off and the midsize market was barely registering and barely any deals were had, times have changed significantly; you aren’t getting a full size for a few k (or few percent) more. Plus the full size trucks are much larger and many people aren’t liking that, I prefer the midsize, but the short bed won’t allow me to stay to I will check out the other brands. If I had a 10k boat to pull and 3 car seats then I wouldn’t care, but being DINKS with a 5k boat and toy car the midsize would be better fitting especially on the trails except the bed won’t cut it.
No they give deals on the full size you never see on the mid size due to volume of full size trucks gives them room.
I know as when I bought my Canyon the full size was $1500 more and even had the expensive 22” factory wheels and sunroof.
My father inlaw last year bought a Silverado LT crew 4×4 and only paid $50k for it and it only lacks leather.
I want a smaller truck but it is getting to where I will move up if they jack the price this much.
You can BS some here but i am one that actually bought these models and know what I paid.
I expect full size to see rebates in the future again.
I was just quoted 95k for a 2022 3500 Denali Duramax. Won’t be buying that!
Ci2Eye, I also would like for GM to build a Bronco fighter although I don’t know what GM would call it since they waisted the Blazer name on a cuv. Possibly C/K10 C/K20, I believe if GM did build it, it would definitely be a head turner.
That tiny market is now over saturated with the Bronco, it wouldn’t be a long term seller or a profitable vehicle with how much would go in to it. That market has a quick turn around with how rudimentary those vehicles are when people don’t use them and they see how bad they are as a DD, tons are sold used with low mileage.
The Blazer name wasn’t wasted, it wasn’t that storied of a name, it had a 20 year run before being watered down, the name fits the vehicle it is on and is selling well.
I wish my ’20 Canyon had that Bed Rail system. I’ve been looking for a good setup since I bought it.
thats a hefty price tag for the AT4X, and the Denali will likley be a few thousand less, thats big money for a midsized truck
not sure how i feel about GMC pretty much making all the Canyons the same, they didn’t even try to differentiate them, they all have the exposed front wheels for extra ground clearance, fuel economy is likely going to suffer.
and i’m still disappointed there won’t be a long box crew cab, just disappoinging
Has any info been released on the interior dimensions? The current model is a tad too narrow in the interior. The Tacoma has more hip space, as will the redesigned Ranger. I really like the looks of the new canyon, but if it didn’t grow in interior width I’ll be looking elsewhere. Hopefully they will have a regular model decently equipped for 40kish with 4wd.
Love the look 2023 GMC Canyon specially in the At4x trim and Denali trim should sell very well little pricey though but good looking truck !!
Agree that we need a long bed option, maybe even an 8 foot bed.
Glad to see they have a sunroof on one of them. The dealer threatened that the warranty would be cancelled if I added a sunroof to the 2022 I ordered.
I just noticed that everything except the Elevation will be 4X4 standard, not sure if thats such a good move for the Denali, I can understand for the AT4 but there parts of the country where the 2WD is the common truck configuration.
The current Denali is $42K in 4×2 and $48K in 4×4, thats a fairly big chunk of dough for something that you’re not going to use, and thats with the current truck pricing, who knows what 2023 is going to cost.
Points for the exterior look, at this point as it’s limited.
But no MultiPro AND a forced $1,500.00 charge for something that costs GM almost nothing and most buyers don’t need or want – nice adder to your bottom line though GM – genius, pay no attention to customers and forced overcharge! Sounding like “The Old GM”!
