General Motors pulled the sheets on the 2023 GMC Canyon last August, revealing an all-new third generation for the midsize truck. Among the many updates in store was the debut of the off-road-capable Canyon AT4X trim level, highlighted by the limited-run Canyon AT4X Edition 1. Now, according to a GM executive, it’s been revealed that the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X Edition 1 sold out in just a matter of minutes.
The insight was provided by Global Vice President of Buick, GMC, and GMC Hummer EV at General Motors, Duncan Aldred. During a recent media presentation, Aldred stated that the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X Edition 1 sold out in just 10 minutes. Order books for the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X Edition 1 opened with the truck’s debut last August. Unfortunately, GM did not state how many units of the Canyon AT4X Edition 1 will be produced, although it is considered an “exclusive” package.
For those readers who may be unaware, the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X is the next-level off-roader trim level introduced with the latest third-gen pickup. Highlights include a 1-inch lift compared to the rest of the lineup, plus Multimatic DSSV dampers, 33-inch MT tires, front and rear lockers, and underbody skid plates, not to mention an exclusive Baja drive mode. The interior of the new Canyon AT4X is decked out in the Obsidian Rush colorway with Ceramic White accents.
