It will be expensive and go by the name 2023 GMC Canyon AT4X, but it will be prepared for off-roading.

The 2023 GMC Canyon is the ultimate off-road vehicle, but it costs more than $60,000. 

This mid-size truck's corporate cousin, the Chevy Colorado ZR2, will undoubtedly cost less than that sticker price. 

 Therefore, the AT4X could be able to explain that price increase.

If the 2023 Canyon AT4X is priced at roughly $65k, it will be comparable in price to the Ford Bronco Raptor.

There is always the AT4 trim for a Canyon vehicle that still has off-road prowess but is reasonably priced.
