The 2023 GMC Canyon is set to launch this quarter, introducing an all-new third-generation for the midsize pickup truck. Previously, we brought you photos of a 2023 Canyon AT4 painted in the Sterling Grey Metallic. Now, GM Authority photographers have captured another 2023 Canyon AT4 in Sterling Grey Metallic, this time sporting a different set of wheels.
First, a refresher about this particular truck: the AT4 model is positioned as an accessible off-roading pickup truck, slotting between the base Elevation and luxurious Denali, or the even more capable AT4X. Standard on the Canyon AT4 is an off-road suspension package that includes a two-inch suspension lift and extra-wide track, with a total of 9.6 inches of ground clearance.
Now, let’s get to the exterior bits of this particular Canyon AT4. Up front, we can spot the trim-specific faux skid plate, red-painted tow hooks and an AT4 hard badge nestled into the lower end of the driver’s side front grille. A red GMC logo is prominently displayed front-and-center.
Moving around to the side, we see body-colored door handles and black painted mirror caps, as well as the star of this show – the optional 20-inch Full Gloss Dark Grey Machined Finish Aluminum wheels (RPO code RD5). An $800 option, these rollers replace the 18-inch Dark Grey Machined Finish Aluminum wheels (RQL), which are standard on the AT4 and that we saw on the other Sterling Metallic Canyon AT4 we mentioned above.
Out back, we spot a color-matched CornerStep bumper, another AT4 hard badge on the lower right of the tailgate and a single exhaust pipe behind the passenger’s side rear tire.
This 2023 Canyon AT4 is draped in Sterling Grey Metallic paint (color code GXD), a $495 color option that’s available with all Canyon interior colorways:
- Jet Black
- Obsidian Rush
- Jet Black / Teak
- Jet Black / Timber
It’s worth noting that the AT4 trim level is only available with the Jet Black / Timber colorway, in either Cloth seats and CoreTec seat trim or perforated leather appointed seats. Additionally, Sterling Grey Metallic is available across all 2023 Canyon trims.
The 2023 Canyon is available in a total of eight exterior hues (relevant paint code listed in parentheses):
- Deep Bronze Metallic (GXN)
- Desert Sand Metallic (GTL)
- Dynamic Blue Metallic (GLT)
- Onyx Black (GBA)
- Solar Flare Metallic (GCP)
- Sterling Metallic (GXD)
- Summit White (GAZ)
- Volcanic Red Tintcoat (GNT)
Of these, only Summit White is available at no extra charge, while the rest of the colors carry an upcharge.
Under the hood, all 2023 Canyon models are equipped with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine in the top High-Output tune, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the only transmission offered is the revised GM eight-speed automatic transmission.
As for structure, the all-new Canyon rides on the updated version of the GM GMT 31XX platform, known internally as the 31XX-2. Production will kick-off on January 25th, 2023 at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
