GM pulled the sheets on the all-new third-generation 2023 GMC Canyon in August, showing off a new exterior design, an overhauled cabin space, a new powertrain, and a wealth of modern tech features. In addition, the third-gen 2023 GMC Canyon also introduces the new Canyon AT4X trim level, and now, we’re getting a look at the new 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X Edition 1 in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
For those readers who may be unaware, the new-for-2023 Canyon AT4X adds a number of off-roading features to the already capable Canyon AT4, with the AT4X Edition 1 package taking it a step further with even more standard equipment.
This particular model is finished in Volcanic Red Tintcoat (paint code GNT), and is running all the usual 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X gear. Highlights include a 1-inch suspension lift with Multimatic DSSV dampers, plus knobby 33-inch tires. A set of underbody skid plates protects the greasy bits, while front and rear e-lockers help the drivetrain find the grip. Further standard features include a Baja drive mode and the Obsidian Rush colorway with Ceramic White accents in the cabin.
The Edition 1 package adds to this with goodies like an underbody camera system and off-road bumper with a safari bar, plus a reconfigurable bed rail system, performance front skid plate, and a grille-mounted 30-inch off-road light bar. And of course, we can’t forget the requisite Edition 1 badging.
This particular example is also notable for leaving out a few important items normally equipped as standard on Edition 1 models, namely the front-mounted winch and 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. Instead, this particular model is equipped with the “regular” AT4X 17-inch alloy wheels.
All 2023 GMC Canyon models are equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque in the top-rated High Output tune. Four-wheel drive is standard for the AT4X trim.
The new 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X is set to hit production in the spring of 2023, following the start of regular production on January 25th. Production will take place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri. Pricing for the Canyon AT4X Edition 1 starts at $63,350.
