The 2021 GMC Canyon has four trim levels. The
GMC Canyon Elevation Standard is the base model. It's equipped with the 4-cylinder engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission and vinyl-upholstered seats. Although entry-level, this midsize GMC pickup is far from spartan. It's equipped with a locking tailgate, 18-in wheels, a 7-in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a power driver's seat with a manual recline feature. The
GMC Canyon Elevation improves on that with onboard Wi-Fi, an 8-in touchscreen, automatic climate control, an overhead console and a soft-touch instrument panel. Next up: the new
Canyon AT4. In addition to its off-road suspension and 31-in Goodyear DuraTrac tires on 17-in alloy wheels, the 4WD AT4 comes with a locking rear differential and a skid plate for the transfer case. The GMC
Canyon Denali -- updated for 2021 with styling that makes it look more like its larger Sierra sibling -- remains at the top of the lineup. This luxurious midsize pickup boasts a leather interior with wood trim, a 7-speaker Bose stereo system, chrome exterior trim and unique 20-in alloy wheels. It also comes standard with a trailering package and spray-on bed liner. Among the multiple available options is a Convenience Package for the Canyon Elevation. For $630, you get a remote-locking tailgate, keyless ignition, cruise control and a rear defogger. On higher models such as the Canyon Elevation and AT4, the $690 Driver Alert Package is a worthwhile consideration. It includes rear park assist, forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning. The Canyon Elevation can be made a bit more luxurious with a $1,400 High Elevation Package that includes black leather front seats and a heated steering wheel. Leather is also optional on the AT4.
