The 2023 GMC Canyon got its big reveal last August, ushering in a brand-new third generation for the midsize pickup nameplate. Updates include new exterior styling, an overhauled interior, a new powertrain, the latest tech features, and the new off-road-capable GMC Canyon AT4X. Now, GM Authority has been given an opportunity to drive the 2023 GMC Canyon for ourselves, which leads us to ask – what do you want to know about it?
Starting outside, the 2023 GMC Canyon presents new exterior dimensions that are taller and wider than the preceding generation. Exterior features include LED lighting with thin signature lights, as well as a bold rectangular grille and crisp body lines. The front air dam was also removed, while the pickup offers improved approach, departure, and breakover angles compared to the previous generation.
The updates continue inside cabin, where we find a design that was completely overhauled for the 2023 model year. Standard spec includes an 8-inch digital instrument cluster for Elevation and AT4 trim levels, while Denali and AT4X trim levels incorporate an 11-inch instrument cluster. Safety tech features include the Pro Safety package as standard, which bundles together Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking with Bicyclist Detection, IntelliBeam headlamps, Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision Alert.
The powertrain spec includes the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine as standard, specifically the top 2.7L Turbo High Output variant. Maximum output is rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The second-generation GM 8-speed automatic transmission is also included as standard, while both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are available to put the power to the ground.
Under the body panels, the 2023 GMC Canyon rides on the updated GMT 31XX platform. Production takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri. Pricing starts at $38,095, including destination freight charge.
