The 2021 model year will bring some significant changes to the trim levels of the GMC Canyon, a small pickup truck. Just like its cousin, the Chevy Colorado, the Canyon will go on without its base trim, along with a few other key changes.
The 2020 GMC Canyon used to come in six trim levels: SL, Base Canyon, SLE, SLT, All Terrain, and Denali. The 2021 model will cut that down to four: The Elevation Standard, Elevation, AT4, and Denali. While the model is losing some potential combinations of cab size and bed lengths, there will still be 14 different combinations so you can build your ideal truck.
The first-ever Canyon AT4 is an off-road specialist that will come standard with a V6 engine capable of generating 308 horsepower. 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, Advanced Hill Descent Control, four-wheel drive with Rear Automatic Locking Differential, and a two-speed AutoTrac transfer case will make it a peerless beast both on and off the road.
If you want more torque, opt for the 2.8L Duramax® Turbo Diesel Engine and take advantage of its 369 pound-feet of twist. Luxury doesn’t take a backseat to the rugged capabilities of the 2021 Canyon AT4; heated front seats and a heated steering wheel will keep you comfortable on any road, in any temperature.
While we don’t know many more specific details about the upcoming 2021 Canyon, we hope to see you here at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase when it hits lots later this year.
