The 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X has officially been revealed. We’ll just get down to what matters. 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires. A 3-inch lift. A high-output turbo engine punching out 310 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. Underbody plating, underbody cameras, high clearance bumpers, next-generation Multimatic DSSV dampers, front and rear locking differentials, off-road performance digital displays, a stowable tailgate. Tons, and tons, and tons of innovations packed into the footprint of what can be considered a midsize truck. And the interior is quite nice, too. And if all of that doesn’t sound good enough, please divert your attention to the GMC Canyon AT4X Edition 1 you see before you.

For the Edition 1 trim, which will be built in “extremely limited” quantities, here’s what you get:

  • Front- and rear-facing underbody cameras with a wash function
  • Off-road front bumper with safari bar
  • Front 30-inch Lumens off-road grille light bar
  • ComeUp Winch
  • 17-inch beadlock capable wheels
  • Reconfigurable bed rail system
  • Performance front skid plate
  • Unique Edition 1 tailgate badge

Many of these add-ons, such as the winch-integrated bumper, will eventually be sold in the GMC Accessories portfolio. Below is a graphic showing the crucial off-road specs that every 2023 Canyon AT4X (and Edition 1) will possess:

The Edition 1 notwithstanding, the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X will sit atop the hierarchy of trim levels, surpassing even that of the luxurious 2023 GMC Canyon Denali. Of course, this also means that all of this impressive kit will come at a premium. The price for the AT4X Edition 1 will come in at $63,350 USD. Which is, yes, pushing things to new pricing brackets from before, but when you consider that the larger Sierra AT4X is nearly $20,000 more, it kind of puts things into a value perspective. The new Canyon AT4X is scheduled to begin production in Spring 2023 in Wentzville, Missouri, while the rest of the lineup will start production just beforehand, in “early” 2023. And if you want the range-topping Edition 1, reservations are open now.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
