The 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition just made its formal introduction, offering up a next-level off-roader complete with tons of trail-ready upgrades. Similar to the 2024 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison, the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition features a wealth of equipment provided by the off-road and overlanding specialists at American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), elevating the new third-generation GMC Canyon with even more of that dirt-duty good stuff. The 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition joins the GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition and GMC Sierra HD AT4X AEV Edition to round out Big Red’s off-roader lineup.
Framed as “the most advanced and capable Canyon ever,” the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition features some nice specs when it comes to tackling the trails, including a 38.2-degree approach angle, a 26-degree departure angle, and a 26.9-degree breakover angle, as well as 12.2 inches of ground clearance.
Equipment highlights include 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires wrapped around exclusive AEV beadlock-capable Salta wheels, as well as a 1.5-inch lift compared to the standard GMC Canyon AT4X. The exterior also includes stamped steel front and rear bumpers, while a set of five ultra-high strength, hot-stamped Boron steel skid plates protect vital bits underneath the truck, including the front approach, the suspension and steering gear, the transfer case, the fuel tank, and the rear differential.
The bumpers are signature units from AEV, and offer a high-clearance design that maximizes approach angle and vehicle protection. There’s also integrated fog lights up front and provisions for a winch, the latter of which will fit a ComeUp unit offered as a dealer-installed GM Accessory.
The rear bumper also features removable plastic caps with a replaceable 10mm thick steel skid plate, as well as two heavy-duty, chassis-mounted recovery points.
As for the mechanical bits, the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition is expected to run the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, specifically the Turbo High-Output variant rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The updated GMT 31XX-2 platform will provide the underpinnings.
