The 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 gets an Off-Road Performance Edition
GMC ups its off-road game with suspension leveling, rocker protection, skidplating, and more for Canyon AT4.
GMC announced today that its 2021 Canyon AT4 will be available with a new Off-Road Performance Edition, which adds a bunch of off-road upgrades to the already capable AT4 package. The GMC Canyon AT4 melds the worlds of luxury and capability by combining luxury elements such as GMC's premium interior appointments inside with 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, an off-road-tuned suspension, an Eaton G80 locker rear differential, and advanced hill descent control, but the new Off-Road Performance addition takes the Canyon AT4's off-road game even farther.
What's In the 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition Package?
For starters, the Off-Road Performance Edition adds some real upgrades, such as a suspension leveling system to raise the front of the vehicle level with the rear. The higher front stance, coupled with eliminating the front air dam, improves approach angle more than 35 percent, giving the 2021 Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition a 30-degree approach angle. Sliding down the body (pun intended) is a set of rocker protection to help stave off trail damage, and special lightweight yet strong 5/32-inch-thick aluminum front and mid undercarriage skidplates keep the lower radiator, steering gear, front differential, and oil pan protected during serious trail work. The T-case skidplating that comes standard on the regular AT4 package is, of course, included.
But the Off-Road Performance Edition doesn't stop at just improving the 2021 Canyon AT4's performance and survivability. A GMC spray-in bedliner both protects the bed and looks great in the process. The interior is equipped with accessory floor liners, the exhaust features a glass black performance tip, the 17-inch gloss black wheels are unique to the package, and to help designate the Off-Road Performance package further, the exterior AT4 logos are carbon black.
The 2021 GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition will be available to order later in 2021, so be sure to keep an eye on gmc.com if you're planning on purchasing one of these unique multifunction luxury performers.
