The Denali Black Edition package for the 2023 GMC Canyon is priced at $3,495, and requires the Onix Black paint option (paint code GBA), which by itself is $495. For reference, the 2023 GMC Canyon Denali starts at $52,495, including a $1,495 destination freight charge.
Offered as the “luxury cruiser” of the lineup, the 2023 GMC Canyon Denali is the range-topper of the trim level cadence, slotting in above the base-level Elevation, off-road-ready AT4, and ultra-capable AT4X. Standard features for the Denali include chrome exterior trim, chrome running boards, LED lighting elements for the headlights, taillights, DRLs, and fog lamps, and a wider stance with a two-inch factory suspension lift.
Inside the cabin, the 2023 GMC Canyon Denali also boasts a range of infotainment goodies, including an 11-inch diagonal driver’s display, 11.3-inch infotainment display, and 6.2-inch diagonal head-up display. Standard spec also tosses in laser-etched open-pore wood trim, a heated steering wheel, seven-speaker Bose Audio, and heated / ventilated power seats.
As for the powertrain, all 2023 GMC Canyon trim levels are equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine. Although the GMC Canyon’s corporate cousin, the Chevy Colorado, offers this engine in multiple states of tune depending on the trim level selected, the 2023 GMC Canyon runs the range-topping 2.7L Turbo High-Output tune as standard, with output rated at a maximum of 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
Under the body panels, the 2023 GMC Canyon rides on an updated version of the GMT 31XX platform. Production of the 2023 GMC Canyon will kick off late this coming January at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
