2024 GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition Unique Features & Design

Published on Mar 23, 2024 by Classic ELITE Buick GMC Creative Team

While the automotive industry has made a monumental shift from cars being king to almost being completely replaced by crossovers and other SUVs, pickup trucks have continued to quietly be the most popular vehicles on American roads. Emerging within that space over the past few years has been the midsize truck segment, as customer interest in smaller trucks continues to rise. That’s a big reason why the GMC Canyon has become so popular, and why for 2024 engineers have made a pretty exciting enhancement despite having just entered a new generation in 2023. That’s right, the 2024 GMC Canyon will be receiving an AT4X AEV Edition package with unique features and design cues, which we’ll highlight today.

“GMC is giving customers the ability to forge their own path within the premium off-roading space. GMC Sierra LD and HD AT4X AEV Editions delivered what customers were looking for in the off-roading space and now we’re applying that same formula to the next-generation Canyon. The market continues to see a surge of interest in the midsize space. Customers want something capable and premium, with purposeful technology that enables them to set off the beaten path. This next generation GMC Canyon, and the all-new Canyon AT4X AEV Edition, will be all that and more.”

- Duncan Aldred, Global Vice President, Buick-GMC

What else is new for the 2024 Canyon?

The addition of the AT4X AEV Edition might have been the biggest and most exciting change for the 2024 model year, but it wasn’t the only improvement made this year. In addition, Baja Drive Mode has been enhanced for the 2024 model year. This feature, which is only available on AT4X and AT4X AEV Edition models, now includes a smart launch control feature that’s capable of learning the surface that you’re driving on and dynamically adjusting engine speed and torque accordingly on future launches. The feature enables drivers to apply pressure to both the acceleration and brake pedals simultaneously before releasing the brake pedal for an improved launch sequence.


One more new feature available in the whole 2024 Canyon lineup is that owners will be able to update their vehicle’s software and even add new digital features over the air thanks to the new Utilifi Platform.


The 2024 GMC Canyon has already arrived right here at Classic ELITE Buick GMC, and you can find just about any trim level you’re interested in, including the AT4X trim. However, if you’re interested in getting an AT4X AEV Edition trim level, you’ll have to place that order yourself. Feel free to get in touch with us to inquire about starting this process.
