For the new model year, the 2024 GMC Canyon will receive a select few updates and changes over the all-new next-gen 2023 model. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2024 Canyon will feature a new rear seat belt indicator feature.
The Rear Seat Belt Indicator (RPO code UH5) will be standard across the entire trim lineup, and serves to help remind the driver who is buckled and unbuckled in the rear seats with graphics that appear in the Driver Information Center.
Of course, the most notable aspects of the 2024 model year is the introduction of the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition. Engineered alongside American Expedition Vehicles, the AT4X AEV Edition takes the already extremely capable AT4X and cranks its all-terrain abilities up another notch with a bevy of go-anywhere goodies. These include stamped steel front and rear bumpers, and five ultra-high strength and hot-stamped Boron steel skid plates. For the true off-road junkies out there, it may be worth noting that the AEV Edition features a 38.2-degree approach angle, a 26-degree departure angle, and a 26.9-degree break-over angle, as well as 12.2 inches of ground clearance.
As a reminder, the 2024 GMC Canyon will be offered exclusively with a single powertrain configuration, the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine that develops 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. RWD is standard fare on the starting Elevation trim level, while 4WD is available on the Elevation and standard equipment on AT4, AT4X and Denali trims.
In regard to structure, the all-new Canyon rides on an updated variant of the GMT 31XX platform, which it shares with the Chevy Colorado. Meanwhile, production of the 2024 model year will kick off in late October at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri .
