The more off-road trucks the better.
If you follow popular media, then you'll know that owning a performance car or truck is basically an immoral act, and if you can't afford an electric vehicle, then you're expected to stay home or take a bike ride to work. General Motors is currently spearheading a massive push for renewables, but in the same breath it is also bringing out a range of high-performance off-road trucks. GM is basing its off-road conquest on the Chevrolet Colorado, with the mighty ZR2, but now promises another contender from the GMC stable in the form of the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X.
For GM, adding more hardcore off-road trucks is an easy choice, as even the second-hand market struggles to keep up with the demand for these types of vehicles. GM started the Colorado off-road range with the ZR2 back in 2016, and by 2023, the company plans to offer a Chevrolet Silverado ZR2, and the highly anticipated GMC Hummer EV. The fact that GM is expanding into the GMC means that we'll be seeing double in the near future, but that simply means more sales for the motoring giant. Details surrounding the 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X aren't completely fleshed out, but we know a few things for certain.
The new truck will be based on the 31XX-2 platform and will share its hardware with the upcoming 2023 Chevy Colorado ZR2. This will include tough as nails off-road gear such as chunky 33-inch Goodyear tires, bumper cutouts, 17-inch wheels, and the latest Multimatic DSSV dampers. Under the hood, we expect to see a high-output version of the 2.7L L3B turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine producing somewhere around the 300 horsepower mark to match the next-generation Ford Ranger. The US is a nation of truck lovers, and this move by GM makes everyone a winner.
