GM unveiled the 2023 GMC Canyon in August of 2022, ushering in an all-new third generation replete with several upgrades and changes. Among these are new exterior styling, an overhauled cabin, and a new powertrain. Big Red’s all-new midsize truck recently began shipping to dealers, but GM Authority has just learned that the 2023 GMC Canyon is currently facing a constraint for the spray-on bedliner feature.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2023 GMC Canyon’s spray-on bedliner is now under constraint due to a supplier restriction, and it’s currently unclear when the feature will be available in full capacity again. As a result of the constraint, customers will likely be unable to order the feature.
The 2023 GMC Canyon’s spray-on bedliner is tagged with RPO code CGN, and it is normally offered as optional for the 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation and AT4 trims, with pricing set at $475. The spray-on bedliner is also equipped as standard for 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X and Denali trim levels, making this new constraint particularly problematic for those two models.
The GMC Canyon AT4X off-roader is a new addition for the pickup’s 2023 model year. Production of the GMC Canyon AT4X was set to start later than the rest of the lineup, but was later delayed beyond the initial late production start date. The 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X is now expected to begin rolling off the line this month, if it isn’t already. Production takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, which recently experienced a significant hail storm, damaging thousands of vehicles in the process, per a recent GM Authority exclusive.
As a reminder, the 2023 GMC Canyon cradles the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, specifically the top 2.7L Turbo High Output variant, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Under the body, the 2023 GMC Canyon rides on an updated variant of the GM 31XX platform.
