If you were hoping to order yourself a brand new GMC truck soon, then Christmas has come early for you. Today, the 2023 GMC Canyon configurator has launched, complete with pricing, options, and accessories. Let’s take a closer look…
Like the new 2023 Chevrolet Colorado, the 2023 GMC Canyon pickup truck comes in a single cab configuration (crew cab), with a single bed configuration (short box). The new Canyon also comes with one engine: a 2.7L turbocharged four-cylinder. Where the new Canyon significantly differentiates itself from the new Colorado (besides exterior design) is the following: the Canyon is available exclusively in a wide-body style where the Colorado is not, and the Canyon exclusively offers the high-output calibration of the L3B engine producing 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque where the Colorado offers more of a tiered approach based on trim level.
This makes the base 2023 GMC Canyon Elevation a very interesting proposition: a rear-wheel-drive midsize truck with 430 lb-ft of torque, 3.42 axle ratio, 2-inch lift, wide-body stance, and standard tires with a 265 mm cross-section. For a base MSRP of $38,095 USD, there’s not much else on the market with this kind of performance content. Opting for 4×4 pushes pricing to $41,395 USD before options. Additionally, all other 2023 Canyon variants are 4×4 only.
Moving up the trim level ladder is the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4, starting at $45,995 USD. This adds an off-road suspension, 2-speed transfer case, automatic locking rear differential, and more. More off-road kit such as a skid-plate package, as well as an AT4 Premium Package which adds things like heated/vented front seats and a wireless charging mat.
Next up is the 2023 GMC Canyon Denali. A trim level that needs no introduction at this point, this is the fancy one, and is priced as such from $52,495 USD. This adds Bose audio, heads up display, 20-inch wheels, chromed assist steps, and standard heat/vented seats and heated steering wheel.
At the top of the 2023 GMC Canyon lineup is the go-anywhere AT4X. This adds all of the off-road hardware available, including 3-inch lift (compared to the last-gen Canyon), available underbody camera system (like the Hummer EV), front and rear locking differentials, 285/70R17C Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires wrapping 17-inch wheels, 11-inch digital instrument cluster, outboard-mounted Multimatic DSSV dampers, and so on and so forth. The starting price for the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X is $56,995 USD. For those that want to go real hard in the paint, there’s the AT4X Edition 1. This adds the AEV brush guard, COMEUP winch, beadlock capable wheels, accessory power box, front skid plate, 30-inch light bar, unique badging, standard underbody cameras, and a reconfigurable bed rail system. This package, which as limited and late availability, tallies $9,295 USD. If that’s too steep, the $2,995 Sports Bar Package may suffice, which adds the light bar, brush guard, and accessory power distribution box.
Add things like a premium paint option, power sunroof, steel driveshaft, finished exhaust tip, off-road assist steps, cargo tie-downs, and and an off-road recovery kit, and you’ve got yourself a $70,000+ midsize truck. Don’t believe it? Have a look at the 2023 GMC Canyon configurator here.
