General Motors introduced the all-new 2023 GMC Canyon last year, debuting a long list of updates and changes that includes new exterior styling, an overhauled interior space, a new powertrain, and new tech features. The latest third-gen pickup also introduces the GMC Canyon AT4X, a new off-road-ready, go-anywhere trim level packed with trail-ready goodies. Now, GM Authority has learned that the GMC Canyon AT4X will soon be available with removable off-road assist steps.
Assigned RPO Code RVP, the removable off-road assist steps for the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X can be bolted directly to the pickup’s off-road rocker protectors (RPO code BZT). The steps are priced at $495 for a set of two.
Given that the Canyon AT4X has a three-inch lift from the factory as part of its “Ultra High and Wide” stance / configuration, it’s likely that it’s not all that easy to get in and out of it. That is compounded further by the fact the truck’s rocker protectors don’t really offer a stepping surface. Hence, the removable steps should make it much easier to get in and out of the AT4X.
Looking ahead, The General is poised to launch the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition, which will offer even more off-road-centric equipment over the “standard” GMC Canyon AT4X. GM Authority recently posted an exclusive video detailing a teaser for the upcoming 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition.
As a reminder, the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X is equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, specifically the High-Output variant rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The turbo ‘four mates to the second-generation GM eight-speed automatic transmission, which feeds the standard four-wheel drive system.
