When it comes to pickup trucks, you can rarely find one that checks off all the boxes. Style and luxury take a backseat to power and capability, while midsize trucks often struggle to even provide the latter—but not the 2022 GMC Canyon. Thanks to its smart and stylish design, along with an array of hard-working engine options, this midsize pickup brings it all to the table. Learn more about the 2022 GMC Canyon with your source for all things Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC in Alberta: Jack Carter Chevrolet GMC.



The strong, muscular design of the 2022 GMC Canyon amounts to a sneak peek at the power found under its sculpted hood, while no shortage of details back up this promise—like the body coloured-grille and black painted 18” wheels found on the Canyon Elevation. The 2022 Canyon AT4 is a seriously off-road ready pickup, with 31” Goodyear® Wrangler Duratrac® tires and red recovery hooks adding both form and function, while the most luxurious trim level—the Canyon Denali—sports a redesigned grille along with no shortage of chrome accents.


Of course, there’s a lot of substance as well as style, with available features like an EZ-Lift and Lower Tailgate with Remote Locking, spray-in bedliner, and 5” Chrome Assist Steps ensuring the Canyon gets the job done (and looks good doing it). Inside the 2022 GMC Canyon, luxurious touches abound; an amazingly quiet cabin features incredibly comfortable seats with a ton of cargo space, like the under-seat storage found under the rear-folding split bench seat in all Crew Cab models. Elevating the interior of the Canyon Denali are perforated leather-appointed front seats, with Ash-Wood trim and accents providing the proverbial cherry on top.

While many midsize pickups fail to live up to the performance standards set by the full-size segment, the 2022 GMC Canyon finds itself performing like a much heavier-duty truck. This is thanks to the three available engines, starting with a 2.5L 4-cylinder offering 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. Next up, a 3.6L V6 with Variable Valve Technology gives the 2022 Canyon even more power, to the tune of 308 horses and 275 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the late availability 2.8L Duramax® Turbo-Diesel provides this midsize pickup with 181 horsepower and a whopping 369 lb-ft of torque—good for a towing capacity of 7,700 lbs. An available 8-speed automatic transmission aids in the excellent fuel economy of the Canyon, while available features like StabiliTrak® with Trailer Sway Control and Automatic Locking Rear Differential ensure smooth sailing on even the most challenging terrain.

Safety & Technology

Not only does the 2022 GMC Canyon offer a ton of performance power wrapped in a stylish package, it also houses some of the best available infotainment and advanced driver assistance features on the market. The available 8” Diagonal GMC Infotainment System with Navigation and a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot is compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa, ensuring you can stay connected at all times. In terms of safety, options like Lane Departure Warning, Rear Park Assist, and Forward Collision Alert provide an added dose of confidence behind the wheel, while GM’s Teen Driver feature allows you to monitor your vehicle, engage certain safety systems, and even provide data so you can provide feedback to your new driver.

GMC Canyon Model Changes

A major exterior refresh on the 2021 GMC Canyon, in addition to its already stellar performance, left the 2022 version of this midsize pickup needing little in the way of changes. A few changes to trims and packages are about the extent of the updates to the 2022 Canyon, starting with last year’s High Elevation package being repurposed as the Elevation Premium package. For an even more luxurious spin, the Canyon Denali Black Edition adds 20-inch low-gloss black rims, black assist steps, gloss black exhaust tips, along with a number of dark exterior accents for a mood and dramatic look.
