Although there is a lot to get excited about when it comes to the 2021 GMC Canyon in general, the all-new AT4 trim level is, perhaps, the single most impressive aspect of the new model. Off-road trims have been available in the past, of course, but the AT4 is a different kind of off-road trim with more impressive features and options than have ever been available before. GMC fans are going to be no stranger to the AT4 name, and seeing it on the updated Canyon will certainly be something to get excited about.
Rugged Styling and Performance
The exterior of the 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 will feature signature badging for this trim, along with a black chrome grille and grille surround, and red recovery hooks that make an immediate impression and illustrates from the very get-go that this is an off-road beast. Unique, 17-inch wheels are provided on the AT4, which are wrapped in 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires that offer incredible grip and control in even the toughest conditions. The standard engine on the AT4 is a 3.6L V6 that offers up to 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque; you can also choose an available 2.8L I-4 Duramax Turbo-Diesel that delivers up to 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque for incredible performance.
These great off-road features are enhanced by an automatic locking rear differential for improved traction and advanced hill descent control for dealing with rough downhill conditions. An off-road suspension, four-wheel drive, and a transfer case shield also improve off-road performance and help protect your vehicle in rocky conditions. Inside, an available wireless charging pad and available leather-appointed seating make for a surprisingly luxurious ride no matter where you take the 2021 GMC Canyon AT4. All of these features come together in a fantastic way to demonstrate why the Canyon AT4 is the future of GMC’s off-road lineup.
