Redesigned 2020 GMC Canyon Ready for 2019 Release?

Unlike its sibling Colorado, this mid-size truck isn’t available outside North America. Therefore, we can hear various kinds of opposite reports about its future. You can read things about 2020 GMC Canyon redesign on many places but the fact is that this won’t be a complete overhaul, technically speaking. The company is about to offer a lot of novelties, but the upcoming model will continue to represent the current generation of this pickup, which is on the market since 2014. We are about to see a nice number of interesting changes in all aspects. Of course, most of the changes will be madeon the exterior, though we count on several modifications on the inside, as well as on a new engine and a few more things under the hood. In any case, the 2020GMC Canyon will come next year.

2020 GMC Canyon Design and Changes

The current generation of this light pickup truck has been around since 2014. However, it is actually a six-year-old design and that is the reason why many experts suggest a 2020 GMC Canyon redesign. The new model will definitely receive lots of novelty, but it will be more like a mid-cycle refresh. The base design of the truck will definitely remain the same, sharing most of its design characteristics with the Chevy Colorado.

Therefore, you can count on a familiar overall shape and configurations. Just like before, you will a choice of single and two-row versions, with eighter extended or crew cab design. Also, count on same bed sizes and overall dimensions, including wheelbase. On the other side, the 2020 GMC Canyon changes will bring lots of aesthetical improvements. Of course, this mainly refers to the front end, where we expect to see a complete face. For this occasion, we expect to see a lot of influence from the new Sierra, which would in practice mean more massive grill and bumper, and maybe even a new shape of headlights. Rest of the vehicle probably won’t suffer much, though few milder tweaks sound possible. Of course, count on some new color options, as well as on new wheels design, as well as lots of new exclusive details on the top-range Denali trim level.


The interior has always been a strong point of this truck. You will hardly find such upscale cabin in other models in the class. HI-quality materials are the first thing that comes to our minds when someone mentions Canyon. Still, that doesn’t mean the company should leave us without novelties in this aspect. We count on some slight reshaping of the dashboard, which could bring few more details on the center stack, new air vents and similar sorts of things. Also, expect to see new color schemes and probably more tech features in the offer.

Trim Levels

Novelties in terms of standard features will definitely come but we don’t expect bigger changes in terms of trim level organization. This would mean five familiar versions in the offer – SL, base, SLE, SLT and Denali.

The SL is a typical work machine. It comes inextended cab version only, with a quite modest list of standard features. Some of the highlights are four-way power driver seat, 7-inch touchscreen, voice controls, USB ports, six-speaker audio etc.

The base Canyon won’t bring you more standard equipment, but you can choose a crew cab body style, as well as a bigger engine.

A list of standard equipment starts to expand with the SLE model. This one adds things like bigger wheels, bigger touchscreen, smartphone integration and much more.

The SLT makes things even better. Leather upholstery, automatic climate control, remote start, sliding rear window, power-adjustable and heated front seats are some of the highlights.

Finally, expect to see 2020 GMC Canyon Denali once again with lots of distinctive visual details, as well as with some pretty exclusive standard features, such as navigation, premium audio system, wireless charging, heated steering wheel and much more.

Is there a chance to see 2020 GMC Canyon AT4 model?

Many reports suggest the arrival of the 2020GMC Canyon AT4 as well. This would be a special version with more focus on towing and off-road performances. Therefore, count on numerous mechanical upgrades.

2020 GMC Canyon Engines

Big novelty is expected under the hood as well. The 2020 GMC Canyon should get a new 2.7-liter turbo inline-four engine with around 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque. We also expect to see a new 10-speed automatic transmission in the offer for higher trim levels. The rest of the engine lineup should remain the same, which means two gasoline(2.5- and 3.6-liter V) and one diesel engine (2.8-liter Duramax).

2020 GMC Canyon Release Date and Price

The 2020 GMC Canyon release date is scheduled for the next year. We will probably see the new model sometime in the third quarter of next year. Base models should go around 21/22.000 dollars.
