For the 2023 calendar year, the GMC lineup will be introducing either an all-new generation or a mid-cycle refresh of most of its models. So, here’s a breakdown on what to expect from Big Red, and what will be chronologically introduced in the United States and Canada during the 2023 calendar year.
First up is the introduction of the third-generation GMC Canyon. As an all-new generation of the midsize pickup truck, the 2023 Canyon is set to kick off production on January 25th 2023 at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
Next up is the 2023.5 GMC Sierra AT4X and 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X AEV Edition. The order books for the 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X AEV Edition opened in late 2022, with the first units expected to arrive in early 2023. Meanwhile, the “regular” Sierra AT4X will be getting select AT4X AEV Edition equipment as standard affair. Additionally, prospective buyers can now configure a Sierra AT4X AEV Edition on GMC’s website.
Following up the GMC Hummer EV Pickup‘s calendar year 2022 debut, the Hummer EV SUV is set to launch soon, and production will take place at the GM Factory Zero plant, previously known as the GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant. At its introduction the range-topping Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 was announced with a starting MSRP of $105,595.
Currently, the Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 is still in production, either as a 2022 or a 2023 model. Once all Edition 1 orders have been built, production then moves to the EV3X trim, which will also be manufactured at the GM Factory Zero plant. Following in the Hummer EV Pickup’s steps, production of the 2024 Hummer EV SUV EV2X and EV3X variants is also scheduled to begin in the spring, while the base Hummer EV SUV EV2 will arrive in Spring 2024.
Scheduled to begin production in February 2023 is the mid-cycle refresh of the GMC Sierra HD lineup. With assembly set to take place at the GM Flint Assembly plant in Michigan, the refreshed 2024 Sierra HD will feature revised exterior styling, an overhauled cockpit, powertrain enhancements, and more.
Expected to begin production after the 2023 Canyon Elevation, AT4 and Denali trim levels, the Canyon AT4X will launch in the spring of 2023. A Canyon AT4X AEV Edition is also expected to debut sometime during the 2023 calendar year, however, GM has yet to confirm a production date.
Following the reveal of the refreshed 2024 GMC Sierra HD lineup, GM also announced the arrival of a more hardcore off-roader in the Sierra HD AT4X. Taking inspiration from the light-duty Sierra AT4X, the upcoming 2024 Sierra HD AT4X is expected to arrive later in the 2023 model year, likely in the fall.
Finally, the third-generation GMC Acadia is expected to officially debut late 2023, and begin production shortly after in calendar 2024. The all-new 2024 Acadia is expected to continue to ride on the GM C1 platform, while production will be moved to the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.
