What Is AT4X Trim on the 2023 GMC Canyon?

The AT4X trim of the 2023 GMC Canyon is a brand new edition for this year’s lineup. GMC already has the AT4 trim, which was previously the Canyon’s most trail-ready trim. But this year, GMC decided it was time to kick it up a notch, so they released the AT4X edition of this commanding and powerful truck. The AT4X trim is even more rugged, designed for top-notch off-road capabilities. Other competitors may have threatened to out-power the Canyon on the trail in the past, but not anymore.

The AT4X trim has more ground clearance than other versions of the GMC Canyon, allowing it to cruise over rocks, boulders, and other obstacles. It also has unique drive modes, specially engineered spool valves, added underbody protection, and powerful shock absorbers for expert suspension. The ATX4 trim of the GMC Canyon also comes with massive mud-friendly tires for optimal adventuring in any terrain or weather.

The GMC Canyon AT4X is also available with the Edition 1 package, a special collection of optional features and details that make it even more stylish and capable. The package includes extra cameras for additional visibility while off-roading, configurable bed rails, a special badge, a performance skid plate, a 30-inch light bar for night excursions, and bumpers to help protect your vehicle from minor collisions while pushing through the rocks.

AT4X Engine and Power

The AT4X comes equipped with a 2.7-liter turbocharged high-output engine. This workhorse engine pushes the truck forward with 310 horsepower and an awe-inspiring 430 pound-feet of torque, which is the best in its class. The engine comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that comes with overdrive and tow and haul modes for heavy-duty trips. Upshift capabilities help you gain speed and power, especially when pulling substantial loads. Downshift capabilities help the vehicle slow before complete stops to protect the brakes and mitigate collision risks when driving downhill. Powertrain and cruise train braking are also standard.

If you’re looking at a vehicle like the GMC Canyon, you’re probably interested in towing and trailering capabilities. This powerhouse truck exceeds expectations with a towing capacity of 5,500 pounds. For reference, 5,500 pounds is enough to pull a trailer, multiple motorcycles, or a boat. To fully equip your 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X, opt for the Trailering Package. This package adds a 2-inch receiver hitch with seven-pin and four-pin connectors. A seven-wire electrical harness and a special connector for trailers without brakes come with it, too.

AT4X Styling

The AT4X also makes its mark with distinctive styling that reflects its rugged, adventure-ready capabilities. Exterior details include a commanding new grille paired with specially designed LED projector headlamps and black wheel arch moldings that draw attention to the truck’s heavy-duty tires. A spray-on bedliner comes standard to make the bed secure, featuring a subtle logo.

ATX4 Interior

The exterior might grab your attention, but the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X’s comfortable cabin solidifies its place as a class leader. With stylish leather-trimmed Obsidian Rush seating, complete with bright red sporty stitching and crisp white accents, the AT4X’s interior sets it apart from the other trims available. It also borrows the same interior features as the Denali, meaning it offers luxury-grade comforts and details. Interior features include heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, memory presets on the driver’s seat, and all-weather floor liners to protect your cabin from the elements.

The GMC Canyon has a two-row interior cabin, but the rear has a 60/40-split folding bench, so you can lower them to give you extra room for cargo. That makes it easier than ever to load up the backseat with luggage, furniture, or work supplies in addition to the bed.

2023 GMC Canyon AT4X Tech, Connectivity, and Infotainment

There are also plenty of futuristic tech features inside the cabin, which empower you to customize your ride experience. When it comes to infotainment, the AT4X comes equipped with an 11.3-inch touch-screen display with built-in Google capabilities. You can also sync your phone with the system thanks to standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integrations, along with Bluetooth capabilities. The audio system is a seven-speaker Bose setup, along with AM, FM, and SiriusXM satellite radio availability, so you never have to go without a road trip soundtrack.

GMC also designed ways to keep you informed while behind the wheel by offering regular updates about the vehicle’s health, as well as current road conditions. There’s an 11-inch cluster information center, which includes the data you expect, like the speedometer, fuel level, mileage, and trip information. You’ll also see notifications here when the car needs maintenance soon or when the system has an important safety alert to show you. A diagonal color 6.3-inch Head Up display also shares vital information without pulling your eyes from the road.

AT4X Safety

A truck this powerful needs dependable safety features to keep the driver in control and aware. The following smart safety tech features come standard on all GMC Canyon AT4X models:

  • Automatic emergency braking.
  • Rear cross traffic braking.
  • Rear parking assist.
  • HD surround vision.
  • Blind zone steering assist.
  • Lane-keeping assist.
  • Lane departure warning.
  • Forward collision alert.
  • Rear pedestrian alert.
  • Hitch guidance for trailering.
