We are not known for covering trucks but once in a great moon, we are struck with awe and wonder. This new GMC’s first-ever Canyon AT4X complete with the Edition 1 Package (shown on this page) had us rethinking everything we know about trucks. This GMC Canyon is perfect for a great escape. Be that an adventurous weekend camping or off-roading to your remote office on the hiking trails. We should warn you, this exceptional truck has extremely limited availability, so read with caution.
The new GMC Canyon features an all-new look, emphasized by its bold stance, aggressive exterior styling, and elevated interior. Sitting higher and wider than its previous generation, the GMC Canyon’s height provides improved approach, departure, and break-over angles. For this new generation of Canyon, the front air dam was removed for an elevated approach angle while the front axle was moved forward for improved proportions and a more planted, level stance. A simplified short bed, crew cab configuration comes standard across the 2023 Canyon lineup.
The 2023 Canyon’s exterior is pronounced by its high clearance, trimmed corners, and the all-new integration of sheet metal for a unique look. The front fascia features full LED exterior lighting, relocated fog lights, and daytime running lights. The 2023 model year also introduces an available sunroof, a first for the midsize truck.
To turn up the appeal, this Canyon AT4X Editon 1 boasts a factory-lifted, ultra-wide track to elevate the off-road performance and capability, and all AT4Xs come standard with 33-inch MT tires, Multimatic DSSV dampers, front and rear e-lockers, underbody skid plates and the AT4X-exclusive Baja drive mode. The Canyon AT4X’s factory lift enables 10.7 inches of ground clearance standard and a 36.9-degree approach angle.
Inside this Edition 1, features such as an exclusive Obsidian Rush interior with Ceramic White accents, a customizable 11.3-inch diagonal touchscreen infotainment system, and an 11-inch diagonal fully digital instrument cluster are distinctive. In addition, the AT4X includes a GMC-exclusive Head-Up Display and Bose® seven-speaker audio entertainment system.
Just because you have city blood running through your veins doesn’t mean you can’t flex that off-road life once in a while. Canyon AT4X is purposefully engineered to be a premium, no-compromises, off-road midsize truck. With a higher factory lift than every other Canyon trim, Canyon AT4X offers serious off-road equipment and advanced technology for enhanced capability and convenience no matter the destination.
