This is the upcoming ’23 GMC Canyon AT4 undergoing high-altitude testing in Colorado. The ’23 model year will see an all-new Canyon, and the AT4 trim looks more potent than on the current truck, ready to take on unpaved surfaces.
Clad in heavy vinyl camo, the model seen here is the four-door Crew Cab with a short-box setup. It features a high-clearance front bumper treatment, a set of black wheels wearing Goodyear Wrangler Territory AT tires, and what appears to be a suspension lift.
According to GM Authority, the ’23 Canyon will be offered with a single engine—GM’s turbo 2.7L four-cylinder, meaning the 2.5L four and 3.6L six gassers and 2.8L diesel offered on the current Canyon will be going away. The 2.7L Turbo is rated at 310 hp and 348 lb.-ft. of torque in the ’19–’21 Silverado. In the ’22 Silverado, GM bumped the torque output to 420 lb.-ft.
