2020 GMC Canyon Refresh, Redesign, Diesel, and Price. Latest reports suggest that the 2020 GMC Canyon is about to receive a major update. Considering that the full redesign is expected in about three or four years, this seems like a perfect way to keep the truck fresh and competitive on the market. According to our reliable sources, it looks like we are about to see not just styling updates, but also novelties in terms of mechanics, as well as extended lists of standard features for each trim level.
2020 GMC Canyon Engines
One of the most important novelties for the next year will be the introduction of a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Of course, this gearbox will optional, while current 6-/ 8-speed transmissions are about to remain standard features. When it comes to engines, several reliable reports suggest the introduction of a new 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, which is good for about 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Rest of the lineup should remain the same. Base models will feature a familiar 200-horsepower four-cylinder unit, while a large V6 with 308 hp will power higher trims. There is a familiar 2.8-liter diesel engine, which delivers around 180 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
- Quality interior
- Wide engine offer
- Fuel-efficient diesel engine
- Good towing capacity
- Seats could be better
- Base models should have more equipment
2020 GMC Canyon Exterior
Of course, changes to the exterior design will be most significant, just like it is the case with most facelifts. We are about to see some major exterior updates. Of course, most of these novelties will come at the front, where we are about to see revisions of the parts like front fascia, grille, bumper, headlights and probably even hood. Rest of the truck should remain largely the same, though few revisions on the rear end are also possible. This refers to taillights, rear bumper, and similar areas. These visual updates, there is also a chance to see a completely new, off-road version of the truck. The Canyon’s sibling, Colorado already offers an off-road ZR2 version, so 2020 GMC Canyon should go in the same way, which means that Toyota TRD Pro is about to get another competitor.
2020 GMC Canyon Interior
On the inside, we don’t expect such significant changes, like it is the case with the exterior. Expect to see a familiar cabin layout, characterized by a lot of quality materials and premium feel. On the other side, the list of standard features should be longer for each trim level. This probably means that lower trim levels are about to come with features that have been reserved for more expensive models so far. Expect things like automatic climate control and satellite radio available already in base models, while things like navigation, wireless charging, a wi-fi hotspot, and similar things will be available in lower trims.
2020 GMC Canyon Release Date and Price
The 2020 GMC Canyon should come in the second half of next year. Price shouldn’t change drastically. This mid-size truck will probably keep the same range, which goes between $21,000 and $44,000, roughly.
