GMC has just announced the new 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition.
This new trim enhances the Canyon AT4’s abilities and enables customers to confidently venture into rugged off-road environments without sacrificing any of the premium comforts they have come to expect from GMC.
“When customers are looking for a capable off-road truck, we know that they want improved vehicle height as well as additional protection,” said GMC Marketing Director Rich Latek. “Whether it’s tackling die-hard off-road courses or embarking on a weekend adventure, the Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition provides an improved approach angle, enhanced maneuverability and underbody protection to key parts of the truck, while still delivering a premium GMC experience.”
The Canyon AT4 already comes with 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® tires, an off-road tuned suspension package with Advanced Hill Descent Control System and a four-wheel drive system with Eaton G80 Rear Automatic Locking Differential.
The Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition adds to this impressive features list to provide even more capability for drivers whether they’re venturing far off-road or navigating a trail. GMC improved the Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition truck’s approach angle by more than 35 percent to nearly 30 degrees. This was done by adding a factory-installed suspension leveling kit and the removal of the front air dam.
Added rocker panel protectors and performance front and mid skid plates to provide increased off-road capability and maneuverability. The skid plates are made from beefy, 5/32-inch aluminum and help protect the lower radiator, front differential, steering gear and oil pan. In combination with the standard transfer case shield included with the Canyon AT4, the Off-Road Performance Edition offers the protection to the majority of the truck’s powertrain that off-road enthusiasts expect.
The Off-Road Performance Edition elevates the bold styling and premium refinement of the Canyon AT4 with the addition of:
-Unique 17-inch Gloss Black wheels
-Carbon Black AT4 logos
-Gloss Black performance exhaust tip
-After a day of off-road adventure, additional protection for the interior and the truck bed is provided in the form of accessory floor liners and spray-in bedliner.
GMC says that ordering for the 2021 Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition will open later this year.
