The 2023 GMC Canyon introduces all-new generation for the mid-size pickup truck. Boasting a bevy of changes and upgrades over the preceding generation, today we’re taking a closer look at all of the available 2023 GMC Canyon wheel designs.
It’s worth noting that three of the wheels are LPO or dealer-installed options, and when ordered, the Canyon is fitted with temporary transit wheels at the factory, which the dealer must ship back to the plant after fitting the LPO wheels on-site.
- 18-inch Dark Grey painted Aluminum wheel – standard on Elevation (RQ8)
- 18-inch Dark Grey Machined Finish Aluminum wheel – standard on AT4 (RQL)
- 17-inch Black High Gloss Machined Finish Aluminum wheel – standard on AT4X (R34)
- 20-inch Diamond Cut Dark Grey Aluminum wheel – standard on Denali (RD4)
- 20-inch Full Gloss Dark Grey Machined Finish Aluminum wheel – optional on AT4 for an extra $800 (RD5)
- 17-inch Beadlock Capable Aluminum wheel, LPO – included and only available with the $9,295 AT4X Edition 1 package (SMU)
- 20-inch Black aluminum wheel, LPO – included and only available with $3,495 Denali Black Edition package (SNX)
- 22-inch Low Gloss Black wheel with machined outer spokes, LPO – optional on Denali (SRL)
It’s worth noting that pricing for the SRL wheels has yet to be announced, and they aren’t available to order yet. However, on the 2023 GMC Yukon, these wheels currently cost $3,295.
For the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon, upgrades and changes be found throughout. On the exterior, this means revised styling, larger dimensions and shorter overhangs, combining to give the 2023 Canyon a more aggressive appearance.
Moving into the interior, the cabin is completely redesigned, with a standard eight-inch digital instrument cluster for Elevation and AT4 trim levels, and an 11-inch cluster for the Denali and AT4X trims. Onboard tech features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, while Pro Safety Package is equipped as standard. This package includes a long list of safety features, including 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.
Under the hood, the 2023 Canyon features the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B as its sole engine option. Unlike the 2023 Chevy Colorado, which receives three different tunes of the 2.7L engine, the 2023 Canyon is only offered with the top 2.7L Turbo High Output tune, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The Canyon is also equipped with a revised eight-speed automatic as the sole transmission choice, the same one found in the 2023 Chevy Colorado.
As for structure, the all-new Canyon rides on an updated variant of the GMT 31XX platform used by the previous generation, while production is set to commence on January 25th, 2023 at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
