Production of the 2023 GMC Canyon will begin in January of next year.
The 2023 GMC Canyon got a complete facelift in August of this year with a new engine and transmission, as well as an extreme AT4X trim level. It’s shaping up to be a very solid midsize pickup that’s significantly better than its predecessor, but that also means it’s more expensive. We have early pricing information for the 2023 Canyon and it shows that the new model costs significantly more than the previous generation truck.
The details you will see below are unofficial and come from the GM Authority. We’ve reached out to GMC for official information and will update this article when we hear back. Meanwhile, the online publication reports that the 2023 Canyon starts at an MSRP of $38,095 with a $1,495 destination fee included. This figure is for the base Elevation 2WD trim and a quick comparison to the 2022 model shows the latter to be $7,605 more affordable than the newer model at the entry level.
If we take a look at the flagship variants, the 2023 Canyon costs at least $66,290 for the AT4X edition, while the 2022 Canyon starts at $54,140 for the Denali with a 2.8-liter diesel. As a side note, GMC still lists the 2022 model on its official website.

As you can see in the table above, the 2023 pickup only has one engine option. This is a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine with 310 horsepower (231 kilowatts) and 430 pound-feet (583 Newton-meters) of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and sends power to the rear or all four wheels, depending on configuration. As a reminder, the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado uses the same engine available in three power stages. However, all three versions mainly use the same hardware.
