2022 GMC Canyon
The 2022 GMC Canyon represents the eighth model year of the second-generation mid-sized pickup truck. Notably, the GMC Canyon received a light update for the 2021 model year (see 2021 GMC Canyon details), consisting of updates to exterior, interior, technology and powertrain. As such, the Canyon receives a few minor changes for the 2022 model year.

The 2022 GMC Canyon is offered with the following three engine and transmission choices:
|Engine||Transmission||Horsepower @ RPM||Torque @ RPM||Rear Axle|
|2.5L I-4 LCV (Gasoline)||6-Speed Automatic (MYB)||200 @ 6300||191 @ 4400||4.10|

A modified variant of the same architecture is used by the following vehicles:
- 2013 and newer Chevrolet and Holden Colorado for international markets (also known as Isuzu D-MAX or Chevrolet D-MAX)
- 2014 and newer Chevrolet Trailblazer, also known as the Holden Colorado 7 and Holden Trailblazer
The 2022 GMC Canyon followed the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and launched during the third quarter of the 2021 calendar year. Notably, complications caused by COVID-19 caused a bit of a delay.
We expect the current, second-generation GMC Canyon to remain in production for the 2022 model year, and that an all-new, future GMC Canyon will launch on or after the 2023 model year.
