2024 GMC Canyon AT4X Redesign, Engine, Cost

2024 GMC Canyon AT4X Redesign, Engine, CostThe GMC Canyon and, presumably, the Chevrolet Colorado will receive all-new underpinnings in 2024, marking the first significant redesign of either vehicle in a decade. Compared to its bow-tie sibling, the Canyon has always been indistinguishable. Currently, only the Colorado is available in the dirt-throwing ZR2 off-road trim, even though both vehicles share powertrains, a smooth ride, and an uninspiring interior. This will soon change. The Toyota Tacoma, the Jeep Gladiator, and the Ford Ranger will all have a more challenging time keeping up with the 2024 GMC Canyon as it receives a new AT4X grade level identical to the ZR2. From what we can tell, the Canyon AT4X will include the same Multimatic spool-valve dampers, locking front and rear differentials, improved suspension, and big Goodyear Wrangler Territory all-terrain tires as the ZR2. Later in summer, the big-bodied Canyon is forecast to throw some muck on the tires.

The Sierra’s younger sister, the 2024 GMC Canyon Crew Cab, is a midsize pickup truck. Customers looking for a reasonably priced, compact pickup truck will find this a great option. The Canyon is the more upscale sibling of Colorado because they share a platform manufactured by Chevrolet. GMC provides two different Canyon Crew Cab trims, the base Elevation, and the higher-end Elevation. The price ranges from $28,700 for the base model to $37,300 for the top-of-the-line Elevation version.

2024 GMC Canyon AT4X Redesign

The initial impression you’ll get of the 2024 GMC Canyon Crew Cab is that of a strong and gorgeous man. It goes well with the rugged nature of the truck. While the overall look is the same, the headlamps and grille have become more menacing. The front fascia is all ripped and muscled, showing off its excellent physical condition. All-season Blackwall tires and 18-inch aluminum wheels are included even on the cheapest model.

LED fog lights, cargo area lights, heated exterior mirrors, and an EZ-lift lower tailgate with a black handle are just a few of the standard features of the Elevation. The definitive equipment list includes LED Signature headlights instead of the conventional halogen projector beams. The upgraded parts give the vehicle an aged appearance while improving its performance. Choose between the 17″ Dark Argent Metallic Cast Aluminum wheels or the 18″ Black-Painted Aluminum wheels from the wide selection of aluminum wheels.

Last year, GMC gently updated the Canyon’s appearance with a new grille design that gave the SUV a bit more presence. The appearance can be either very rough (AT4) or more ostentatious (other versions) (Denali). Alloy wheels in the standard 18-inch size, Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires in the 31-inch size on the AT4’s 17-inch wheels, and diamond-cut machined 20-inch wheels come standard on the Denali. The halogen projector beam headlights and the LED trademark illumination are standard on all models. The door knobs and mirror adjusters on the base model are black. The range-topping AT4 features LED cargo box illumination, dark chrome exterior finishes, and red recovery hooks. The tailgate on all but the base trim is equipped with an EZ-Lift feature that makes it easier to open and close. This year, a new Denali Black Edition kit makes the flagship’s wheels and exterior trim all black for a sinister, covert look.

The dealer fitted AT4 insignia, off-road rocker protection, and black performance exhaust on our Crew Cab, along with 17-inch gloss black aluminum wheels, red tow hooks, a mid-skid plate, and a spray-on bed liner. We think it’s much more attractive than the Chevy Colorado, its corporate sibling. Generally speaking, the size of a standard bed was adequate for us. When compared to the length of an extended bed (74 inches in this case), the common bed seen here measures just 61.7 inches.

The GMC Canyon crew cab may be had with one of three different engines. The standard 6-speed automatic transmission is paired with a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine. Regarding drivetrain, the Elevation Standard only provides a two-wheel-drive configuration, while the Elevation comes with a four-wheel-drive configuration as an option. The motor produces two hundred horsepower and nineteen-and-a-half pound-feet of torque. The result is an improvement of 8.5 seconds in the truck’s 0-60 mph time and 16.5 seconds in the quarter-mile. It can pull up to 3,500 pounds and carry up to 1,440 pounds. The optional 3.6-liter V6 engine is paired with a smooth-shifting 8-speed gearbox. The V6 engine consumes more fuel but produces greater thrust. The vehicle’s V6 engine produces 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. The truck can go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds thanks to its V6 engine and complete the quarter mile in 15.2 seconds. When properly outfitted, it has the highest towing capacity of the bunch at 7,600 pounds.

The other trim’s exclusive engine is a 2.8L Duramax Turbocharged Diesel inline-4 that produces 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The diesel engine is more efficient and has more towing capacity because of its higher torque output. The standard engine is quiet, and the gearbox is quick to react. The 3.6-liter V6 engine provides instantaneous acceleration in response to a heavy foot on the gas pedal. The eight-speed gearbox is likewise quite slick. Aside from pulling a lot, the V6 engine and AWD powertrain make for a powerful combination.

The Canyon’s handling is one of its strong points. We suggest upgrading to the more luxurious Elevation version. The fact that a four-wheel-drive (AWD) version is available is a primary factor. With its four-wheel-drive system, your vehicle will have no trouble maintaining a grip on uneven ground. Though distant and lacking input at low speeds, the steering is quick and smooth at motorway speeds. Body roll is more noticeable while traveling uphill or turning. Its handling is delicate in town. The suspension has been adjusted to be more firm for use off-road, although it still smooths out most bumps. In conclusion, the Canyon’s ride comfort is impressive given that it is genetically a pickup truck.

2024 GMC Canyon AT4X Release Date and Price

The base price of a 2024 GMC Canyon is around $26,800, which is rather pricey for a small pickup truck. Prices for the intermediate Elevation and AT4 versions begin at $30,300 and $38,400, respectively. The Denali trim class is the most expensive, starting at $41,200.
