The GMCCanyon is already a shining example of what is possible inside the very competitive midsize pickup truck segment. GMC has been on the cutting edge of the class by introducing the Denali and AT4 versions of the Canyon over the last several years. As we tick closer to the beginning of the 2023 model year, one of our manufacturing partners has begun to pull the curtain back on one of our most anticipated model releases, the GMC Canyon AT4X. Like its Sierra sibling, the 2023 Canyon AT4X will further blur the lines between pickup truck-based comfort and world-class off-road capability. Let’s take a closer look at what we can expect to see when it goes on sale early next year.

2023 GMC Canyon AT4X Segment-First Features

It will become very clear that the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X is a truly innovative platform. In fact, the manufacturer has introduced several features that will only be found on the midsize Canyon AT4X, outpacing the available capability of its top competitors. Some of these features include:

  • Available front- and rear-facing underbody cameras

How is the 2023 Canyon AT4X Different?

Make no mistake, the new 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X is not a repackaged version of the previously existing ATX trim grade. Not only does it make several segment-first features available, but it is also built a little different from the rest of the GMC Canyon lineup. The new Canyon AT4X will arrive at the Ernie Dean GM showroom with 10.7 inches of ground clearance, thanks to a factory-installed 3-inch lift kit and the new off-road platform rides on 33-inch mud-terrain tires. Other off-road-ready features include:

  • Multimatic DSSV shocks
  • Front and rear lockers
  • Underbody skid plates
  • 36.9° approach angle

Drivers of the 2023 Canyon AT4X can choose from:

  • Tow/haul Mode
  • Normal Mode
  • Off-road Mode
