Cross Canyons With GMC AT4 OvrlandX Concept

Canyon gets serious

  • GMC throws the off-road book at Canyon AT4

  • Pickup ready to go, and stay, anywhere


Overlanding is a mix of off-roading and back-country camping, and it’s the new hotness with pickup truck and SUV concepts. The latest is this one from GMC, a Canyon AT4 pickup that is ready to help you go almost anywhere and make sure you’re comfortable for the long haul when you arrive.

The GMC Canyon AT4 OvrlandX concept truck starts with the stock Canyon AT4 and its 3.6L V6 but then goes all-out on the accessories. It starts with a factory lift and widened fenders, but the suspension changes are pretty serious here. Cast-iron control arms are fitted, there is extra underbody protection, and, our favourite part, GMC has fitted Multimatic DSSV dampers. Those are the trick spool valve shocks that make the Colorado ZR2 an off-road beast.

A heavy-duty bumper is fitted with a winch to help you get out of the worst obstacles while integrated front recovery pockets help if someone else is doing the pulling. There are locking front and rear differentials as well to make sure all four wheels are turning at all times.

The tires are surprisingly modest for this adventurer, with the OvrlandX wearing 33-inch BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tires on 17-inch AEV wheels. It gives the truck 10-inches of ground clearance and a fording depth of 32.1.

A stainless steel truck cap looks extra cool, it also helps hold the roof-mounted tent and the 270-degree awning. The concept Canyon OvrlandX has a solar panel for juice, cans for gas and water, and gets a kitchenette mounted in the back for mealtime.

GMC hasn’t indicated any plans to build it, rather this is meant to “punctuate GMC’s commitment to premium, off-road capable vehicles,” said brand VP Duncan Aldred. That said, Aldred also said that reaction to the concept will direct how GMC serves off-roaders in the future.
