The 2021 GMC Canyon receives a new front-end design, an updated Denali trim, and a new AT4 model. The changes help the midsize pickup truck stay fresh after being introduced for its second generation for the 2015 model year.
GMC’s new AT4 trim for the Canyon is meant to appeal to consumers that want to go off-roading. It features 31-inch all-terrain tires, a unique suspension setup, unique styling, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, and a skid plate. It gives GMC a competitor to the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and its cousin, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2.
Meanwhile, the range-topping Denali trim now comes with 20-inch wheels, a unique grille design, and additional chrome trim pieces. More features have been added, including heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, bespoke stitching, and open-pore ash wood trim.
