GMC has revealed the 2021 Canyon with a slightly tweaked look and the addition of the AT4 off-road trim to the midsize model’s lineup of options.

First introduced on the Sierra 1500 before being brought over to the heavy duty models last year, the AT4 trim brings the following equipment to the Canyon for the first time:

  • 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires wrapped around 17-inch aluminum wheels
  • Off-road tuned suspension with Advanced Hill Descent Control System
  • Four-wheel drive system with Eaton G80 Rear Automatic Locking Differential
  • Transfer case skid plate
  • Red recovery hooks
  • Dark chrome accents

For 2021 the entire Canyon lineup gets a new grille design that GMC says is slightly larger. Overall, GMC says the truck’s new look brings it more in line with the design of the latest Sierra and Sierra HD pickups.

Meanwhile, the 2021 Canyon Denali features a unique grille design, 20-inch wheels and 5-inch chrome assist steps.

The interior of the Canyon Denali features open-pore ash wood trim, aluminum decor and unique stitching, GMC says. Heated and ventilated front seats with a heated steering wheel are standard on the Canyon Denali.

A 308-horsepower, 3.6L V6 engine powers both the 2021 Canyon Denali and AT4 variants. A 2.8L diesel providing 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque is an available option.

Pricing will be announced closer to the 2021 Canyon’s launch later this year.
