It’s a four-wheel-drive midsize pickup that can get you to remote destinations or hold up year after year in rough territory.

What Is AEV?

AEV is an aftermarket manufacturer of vehicle parts and converts specific models from various automakers. The company focuses primarily on designing and manufacturing replacement parts that perform to a higher standard than the original factory equipment. These aftermarket parts enable vehicles to operate in rough conditions, protect the body and the engine, and enhance performance.

The truck has a maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds. The AT4X package features a standard off-road chassis package and gets a 2-inch lift and 3.5-inch widened track from the factory for a height of 10.7 inches and a width of 66.3 inches.

The AT4X AEV Edition features a higher ground clearance of 12.2 inches, steel bumpers in the front and back, and 17-inch Salta beadlock-capable cast aluminum wheels.

The AEV Edition gets three standard auxiliary control switches to help integrate additional overlanding and off-roading accessories. These aren’t available on the AT4X. The front of the AEV Edition has a 38.2-degree front approach angle and a 26.0-degree departure angle that helps the vehicle clear ridges and rocks that would stop other vehicles in their tracks. Last but not least, the rear recovery points are of heavy-duty cast iron, and the front bumper has a mount for a winch.

At first glance, the 2024 Canyon AT4X AEV Edition’s exterior looks much the same as other Canyon variations. When you take a closer look at the vehicle, you see the differences in the form of beefy bumpers, large tires with aggressive tread, and a taller stance.
