The most recent figures are in and they show worrying figures for the luxury GMC Canyon. The model was recently updated and is performing a bit better. But, it’s not selling out of the store like hotcakes. Let’s look at the 2023 GMC Canyon.
Why is 2023’s GMC Canyon the least popular truck?

According to most recent sales figures according to the latest sales figures, the 2023 GMC Canyon isn’t doing so well. It sold 7,501 units in the second quarter of 2022 which was lowered to 6,708 in the second quarter of 2023.
This is a decrease of 793 in sales. Also, year-to date sales as of 2022 were around 13,661, but have dropped to 11,724 for this year. This is a decrease of 1,937 year-over-year.
To put things into perspective For a better understanding, 2023 is the year that Toyota Tacoma has moved 116,845 models in 2023. The GMC Canyon has fallen behind the competition. Even the out of date 2023 Ford Ranger beats it with 24,118 sales in the year.
The comparable, yet less expensive 2023 Chevy Colorado is estimated at 33,165 units sold in the first and second quarters of the year.
What’s stopping the GMC Canyon back? It was updated in 2023 to feature an energised exterior style and a modern interior, as well as advanced technology, and more. All of these features are great!
How much will the 2023 Canyon cost?
The 2023 GMC Canyon has an MSRP of $36,900. This price does not include the destination charge of $1,495. 2023’s Chevy Colorado is priced at $29,200, while the Toyota Tacoma rings in at $28,600, while the Ford Ranger begins at $27,400.
It could be that the 2023 Canyon isn’t worth the price in comparison to its rivals. The only other midsize trucks that have similar price tags are the Honda Ridgeline and Jeep Gladiator. The Ridgeline is priced at $38,800, whereas the Gladiator starts at $38,990.
The price increase could be a hindrance, but the Jeep Gladiator is more expensive and still sells better than the Canyon. However, the Gladiator has a lengthy list of standard features like 4×4.
However, the Canyon is also very affordable. It comes with a turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-four engine, which produces 300 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a 4×4 option that has low-range gearing and is mounted on 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires.
A standard 4×4 is great, as it has an off-road tuned suspension. Other features include LED headlights as well as a remote locking tailgate keyless entry system with push button start as well as an 8.0-inch digital gauge cluster as well as an 11.3-inch infotainment system and wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
What is the reliability of the 2023 Canyon?

The 2023 GMC Canyon has an overall reliability score of 80/100 from J.D.Power. This puts it in the middle category. Scores that range from 70 to 80 are considered average, while anything between 81 and 91 is considered to be above the average.
It’s a bit behind competitors. For instance the Toyota Tacoma earned an 83 while the Ford Ranger has an 86 while the Jeep Gladiator got a score of 85.
However the Canyon is a sturdy truck. The typical model is expected to exceed 200,000 miles, however, it’s not unusual for some models to exceed 300,000 miles. In contrast, the Tacoma could go anywhere from 300,000 and 400 miles.
It’s possible that delays in shipping and production issues cause the Canyon behind but it’s still available. Maybe it’s expensive in comparison to the Colorado or damaged because it isn’t known for reliability.
The year isn’t over yet and things could alter as more models arrive at the dealership. Keep an eye out for more updates regarding the GMC Canyon and its performance.
