In August 2022, GM unveiled the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon as the new, third generation of the midsize pickup. Highlights include new exterior styling, an overhauled cabin, a new powertrain, revised suspension, a range of new technologies, plus the first-ever 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X. The new model is available in four trim levels: Elevation, Denali, AT4, and the aforementioned AT4X, offering an exclusive Edition 1 package, which sold out in just 10 minutes. All trims except the AT4X feature a factory two-inch suspension lift, enabling ground clearance of up to 9.6 inches, while a dedicated off-road performance display page in the infotainment system is standard on all models.
The 2023 GMC Canyon also gets a new tailgate-mounted storage compartment, plus new wheel designs up to 22 inches is size and new CoreTec seat material. The new model also continues to offer the Denali Black Edition package.
The 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X features an extra one-inch lift over the rest of the line for a total of three inches, as well as standard 33-inch MT tires, Multimatic DSSV dampers, front and rear lockers, underbody skid plates, and an exclusive Baja drive mode for high-speed driving on the rough stuff. Inside, the Canyon AT4X includes an Obsidian Rush colorway with Ceramic White accents. The Edition 1 package mentioned earlier aims to make the new off-road-ready AT4X trim level even more appealing with a variety of exclusive off-road parts and components.
It’s worth noting that the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4 gets an optional Off-Road Lift Package to match the three-inch lift included on the Canyon AT4X.
A GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition is still coming and will include a number of important upgrades over the standard, 2023 Canyon AT4X.
Under the hood, all 2023 GMC Canyon models are equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine in the High Output tune rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The boosted four is mated to an updated version of the GM eight-speed automatic that addresses many of the transmission’s shortcomings. The midsize pickup truck rides on an updated version of the same GMT 31XX platform, internally known by GM as 31XX-2.
Production of the 2023 GMC Canyon started on January 24th at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, while the AT4X will go into production in the spring of 2023.
