2021 GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition is ready to hit the trail
It gets a lift kit and skid plates, among other add-ons
GMC introduced a more capable Canyon AT4 named Off-Road Performance Edition that gains modifications like skid plates and a beefier suspension. It can venture further off the beaten path, but it won’t get there faster.
Based on the AT4, which is already better suited to venturing into the woods than the standard Canyon, the Off-Road Performance Edition gains a taller suspension and loses its sizeable front air dam to offer a 30-degree approach angle. GMC knows adventurers will be tempted to put that figure to the test, so it also added skid plates made with 5/32-inch aluminum to protect the radiator, the front differential, the steering gear, and the oil pan.
Full-length rock rails on both sides shield the rocker panels from expensive encounters with boulders and other obstacles. Finally, the Off-Road Performance Edition stands out from the AT4 with specific 17-inch wheels painted in gloss black, black AT4 logos, and black exhaust tips. 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler tires come standard.
Changes in the cabin are limited to floor liners. Out back, the cargo box receives a spray-in liner.

Rivian reveals all the R1T’s colors and trim-level details
Configurator will open for reservation holders first, general public a week later
Rivian just made another little splash by publishing more information about the packaging and timing for its R1T pickup and R1S SUV. Dates for the configurator opening up were also revealed. Those who preordered one will be allowed to configure their R1T or R1S on Nov. 16 through special early access. The general public will be allowed into the configurator Nov. 23.
Rivian didn’t say it, but this will likely ensure the configurator won’t crash and burn from too much traffic right away like we’ve seen happen for other huge releases (most recently the Bronco). Customers who were especially serious should be able to build away without frustrating outages, which is something we’d appreciate if we spent $1,000 to reserve one.
