The 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 comes equipped with off-road-oriented features including a skid plate, a locking limited-slip differential, and special suspension tuning.
The off-road mid-size pickup segment is a hot one. GMC is now adding a rugged AT4 trim level to the 2021 Canyon pickup. Besides, GMC already offers the AT4 level on the Acadia and full-size and medium-duty Sierra. This car appeared to replace the Canyon All Terrain last year.
The exterior of the 2021 Canyon AT4 has slightly changed. Canyon AT4 also has a bigger front grille. There is also a red pull hook and internal bits including an AT4 badge embroidered on the headrest. 2021 Canyon AT4 is equipped with 17-inch wheels and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires supporting the body. It is set up specific off-road suspension, skid plate and anti-slip differential electronic locking limit behind.
In addition to the AT4, GMC is also making changes to the Denali trim level of the Canyon. Although it hasn’t yet released photos of the 2021 Canyon Denali, GMC claims the updated look will make the Canyon appear more like the Sierra. 20 inch aluminum wheels will be added. Also the grille is changed and has chrome accents.
Inside the cabin is decorated with beautiful materials. The materials used are wood opening, contrast stitching and aluminum trim. The new standard of Denali is heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel.
Both Denali and AT4 trim levels are equipped with the Canyon’s 308-hp 308 V-6 engine. In one test, this engine helped the mid-sized pickup truck achieve impressive acceleration. The car reaches 6.3 seconds going from 0 to 60 mph. A 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine with 369 lb-ft of torque is optional, and we assume that the 2.5-liter inline-four will remain the base engine on the Canyon’s lower trim levels.
The 2021 Canyon will continue to be built alongside the Chevrolet Colorado in Missouri. Pricing will be released closer to the start of production. It will reach dealers later this year.
