General Motors plans on debuting its next-generation midsize trucks for the 2024 model year, and today we get our first look at what’s to come. The 2024 GMC Canyon will officially add the AT4X trim level, which stands to be a mechanical equivalent to the next-generation 2024 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. Look for the next-generation, 31XX-2 Canyon to debut sometime this summer.

2024 GMC Canyon AT4X Teaser Photo Clues And Hints

This 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X teaser photo gives us more than a few confirmations. In it we see rock sliders, 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels wrapped around 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, a fender reflector like we see on the much larger Sierra HD, pronounced ‘AT4X‘ badging, and familiar placements of the fuel door, as well as what looks to be carryover door handles. The 31XX-2 platform isn’t a clean-slate design, after all. Rather, it’s an evolved form of what we see with today’s 31XX platform that underpins today’s GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado. Over at Ford, the next-generation Mustang is undergoing a similar revision, with the S650 platform being an evolution of today’s S550 platform. MC&T first disclosed details of the 2024 GMC Canyon back in 2019.

What the teaser photo doesn’t show us are a few details that we’ve previously reported on. The first is that the 2024 GMC Canyon AT4X will feature Multimatic DSSV dampers, which were teased on the Canyon AT4X overlanding concept last year. The engine of choice for the new Canyon as well as the Colorado will be a variation of the 2.7L L3B turbocharged four-cylinder engine we see in the larger Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. The interior the new GM midsize trucks, meanwhile, are expected to share similarities with what we see with the updated Silverado and Sierra, as well, with a larger, horizontally oriented touch screen and a familiar button/knob layout. Stay tuned for more.

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.
