GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Concept
The recently released GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX concept made its debut at the Overland Expo Mountain West 2021. Sources indicate that it is a precursor to an even more capable Canyon AT4 model, with enhancements that are similar to what the Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison offers when compared to the standard Colorado ZR2.
“The Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX concept truck was designed to balance functionality with aesthetics. When you’re overlanding, capability is an important factor, but doing it with premium style and comfort elevates the experience even further for customers who truly want zero compromises,” said John Owens, lead creative designer for the concept truck.
Based on the GMC Canyon AT4 pickup truck, the new concept was designed to showcase GMC’s vision for its growing lineup of premium and capable trucks and SUVs. The rugged-yet-premium pickup features a unique grille and headlamp finishes, distinct AT4 badges, and an exclusive leather-wrapped interior to create a sense of confident capability that doesn’t compromise style or comfort.
Mechanical highlights include GM’s tried and true 3.6L LFX V6 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The truck is also fitted with Multimatic DSSV dampers, along with the following components:
- Factory-lifted, wide off-road chassis with enhanced underbody coverage
- Off-road rocker panel protectors
- Cast-iron control arms
- Heavy-duty front bumper with winch
- Integrated front recovery points
- Front and rear electronic locking differentials
- Wheel flares with integrated task lamps
- Spare tire swivel mount
- Swivels out of the way of the tailgate when bed access is needed
- Guy lines for protecting the windshield from low-hanging branches
The GMC Canyon AT4 Concept also features the following off-road and overland accessories:
- AEV rear off-road bumper
- Stainless steel truck bed cap
- Roof-mounted tent
- 270-degree awning
- Jerry cans for gasoline and water
- Traction boards
- Off-road jack and mount
- Cooler and kitchenette
- Truck bed storage with drawer system
- Solar panel
“The Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX is the perfect concept vehicle to show how GMC envisions the future of Canyon and how the brand is looking ahead to serve its growing customer base of off-roading and overlanding enthusiasts,” the automaker said in a statement.
As stated, a production GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX model is expected to join the model lineup in the near future.
