Carrying the refresh and overhaul introduced with the 2023 GMC Canyon into the next model year, the 2024 GMC Canyon is scheduled to have its order books opened, those orders begin to be processed by GM, and production to kick off within the next few months.
Now, GM Authority has exclusively learned when production of the 2024 GMC Canyon pickup will begin from sources familiar with the matter.
Start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 GMC Canyon is currently slated for October 30th, 2023 according to GM Authority‘s information. The updated GMT 31XX-2 platform underpins the truck’s design, while the Canyon will roll off the assembly line at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
GM Authority has further learned that dealerships will be able to start entering orders into the system during the week of August 24th. Following that, The General will begin processing retail orders approximately a month later during the week of September 28th.
The 2024 GMC Canyon also fits into Big Red’s strategy of developing its truck lineup’s off-road capabilities with a series of new sub-brand trim levels. GMC introduced the AT4 trim to its trio of pickup nameplates, including the Canyon, as a variant with boosted off-road features. The AT4X sub-brand brought even more cross-country, trail-conquering punch and styling to the Canyon and other brands.
Adventurous drivers will get a close look at the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition on July 6th when the model is set to be revealed by GM. We got a sneak peak at an AEV Edition mostly under a tarp, and were able to see a high-clearance bumper providing better approach and departure angles, 35-inch mud-terrain tires on black beadlock-capable Salta wheels, and a more than 3-inch suspension lift.
The 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition was developed in partnership with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). Many of the vehicle’s specs will soon be revealed, but for now, we have at least confirmed that it features an upgraded suspension with long-travel Multimatic DSSV dampers, skid plates, and hydraulic bump stops.
Off-road driving benefits from abundant power, and the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition is equipped with a suitably robust powertrain – the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B Turbo High-Output gasoline engine, which is rated at a maximum of 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
