For many years, the GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado were basically two minor variations on the same theme. Same platform, same looks, same engines and same interiors, the biggest difference between them seemed to be marketing-based. But now, there’s an all-new Canyon for the 2023 model year, and while it’s still based on the same gear and bits as the Colorado, this might be the most distinctly different it’s ever been from its Chevy brother. Off-road pickups seem to be all the rage right now: Chevy is introducing no fewer than three off-road variants of the new Colorado, and GMC is going a step further with the Canyon now only being offered with off-road equipment. While the Colorado is going to be offered in less expensive on-road variants, the Canyon is going to be a pricier, better-equipped model with a simplified powertrain lineup and more standard off-road equipment. Looks like GMC is going to make it a little easier for you to take your Canyon … to the canyons.
