We were impressed 2023 Chevrolet Colorado and now the spotlight is on GMC as they have released new teaser images of the redesigned Canyon.

Set to debut on August 11, the truck features a rectangular grille with U-shaped openings and X-shaped accents. It is flanked by split lighting units that have subtle LEDs at the top and prominent headlamps at the bottom.

Elsewhere, we can see a rugged front bumper, auxiliary headlight and a safari panel that echoes the one used on Colorado ZR2 Desert Boss. We can also spot red recovery hooks, a skid plate and a bulging hood.

GMC isn’t saying much about the model, but it did note that it’s a variant of the Canyon AT4X with the Edition 1 package. The company went on to say it has a “higher and wider stance that’s raised at the factory for optimal ground clearance.” While it’s pretty vague, the Colorado ZR2 suggests the truck will have a 3-inch (76 mm) wider track, 3-inch (76 mm) lift, and 33-inch tires.

While that remains to be seen, we can be pretty sure that 2023 GMC Canyon will be offered exclusively in a crew cab configuration with a 5’2” bed. The model should also be equipped exclusively with the 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine shared with the larger Sierra.

Three different capacities are expected, and the base unit should develop 237 hp. (177 kW / 240 hp) and 259 lb-ft (351 Nm) of torque. We can also expect a mid-range offering with 310 hp. (231 kW / 314 hp) and 390 lb-ft (528 Nm) of torque. Finally, the AT4X and possibly the Denali could have a high-output engine that produces 310 hp. (231 kW / 314 hp) and 430 lb-ft (582 Nm) of torque.

Full details will be released next week, but GMC has noted that the Canyon AT4X with the Edition 1 package will be available for reservation at launch.
