The following-technology GMC Canyon will get an AT4X off-road variant, GMC confirmed Thursday in a press launch.
Scheduled for a summer 2022 unveiling, and very likely to go on sale as a 2023 design, the new Canyon will be the next GMC design to get the AT4X treatment, right after the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 whole-dimensions pickup.
The Canyon AT4X will have 17-inch beadlock-able wheels, but GMC failed to disclose any other facts. Be expecting the AT4X to be a little bit a lot more hardcore than the present-day GMC Canyon AT4, however. Launched for the 2021 product calendar year, the AT4 provides a 1.-inch suspension leveling kit, rocker panel defense, and front and mid skid plates. GMC in 2021 also confirmed a closely accessorized AT4 concept car aimed at overlanding.
The AT4 proved to be rather milder than some hoped. When it was initially teased, hopes have been substantial that it would be a reskinned Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. Perhaps the AT4X will get nearer to that.
The latest generations of each the Canyon and Colorado date again to the 2014 product 12 months, so they are undoubtedly all set for a redesign to maintain tempo with fresher mid-sizing pickups like the Ford Ranger and Nissan Frontier.
New designs are thought to be based on an update model of the latest models’ 31XX system, but spy shots of a Colorado indicate marginally larger proportions. Sticking with the existing system indicates powertrains can be effortlessly carried over, so the 2023 Canyon and Colorado could go on with the current gasoline and diesel inline-4s and gasoline V-6. A hybrid possibility may be added to the lineup as well.
