There's very little in the way of changes for 2020. A tailgate lock control is now integrated into the key fob. Carbon Black Metallic is now an exterior color choice. See the 2020 GMC Canyon models for sale near you
Our dream 2020 GMC Canyon is a well-equipped SLE model with the pickup's optional 3.6-liter V6 engine. It provides a wide range of amenities without spending big money, and we'd still have the pickup's beefy 6-cylinder engine for muscle when it's necessary. The efficient turbodiesel would certainly give us pause, though, during engine selection. Find a GMC Canyon for sale
The Canyon comes in six trim levels: SL, Canyon, SLE, All-Terrain, SLT and Denali. There are extended and crew cab styles available, while 5-ft-2-in and 6-ft-2-in beds are available. Not every configuration is available on every trim level. Prices reflect the $1,095 factory delivery charge.
The base-level Canyon SL ($23,295) is only offered in the truck's base-level extended-cab configuration. Pitched as a bare-bones work truck, it includes six airbags, a backup camera, a part-power driver's seat (manual recline), LED daytime running lights, vinyl floor coverings, no rear seats, air conditioning, a USB port and the new GMC Infotainment system with a 7-in touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity and a 6-speaker sound system. It skips out on essentials such as cruise control and remote keyless entry.
If you want a few more features, consider the Canyon ($26,795), which adds rear seats and carpeted floor coverings to the mix. More importantly, it opens the door to a wide range of desirable options, including remote keyless entry, cruise control and many of the items included on the SLE. It is the crew cab's base trim level.
Next up is the Canyon SLE ($30,195), which includes 17-in wheels, power mirrors, an upgraded version of the Infotainment system with an 8-in touchscreen interface, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot capabilities, two additional USB ports in the rear, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel and an auto-dimming mirror. Automatic climate control, remote ignition and a sliding rear window can be added with the SLE Convenience package.
The Canyon All Terrain ($35,195) is an off-road grade of the SLE with 4WD, a special suspension, special 17-in wheels with all-terrain tires, dark windows and exterior trim, a rear locking differential, hill-descent control, a transfer-case shield and a few extra interior niceties. It should be noted that this is not the GMC equivalent of the far more advanced Chevy Colorado ZR2.
The Canyon SLT ($40,495) includes the SLE Convenience package items plus the V6 engine, leather and heated power front seats plus the Driver Alert Package with forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning.
Additional Canyon options include the diesel engine, forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning, running boards, an innovative in-bed cargo-divider system, chrome wheels, a navigation system and a Bose sound system.
And then there's the Denali ($45,095), which gets the majority of options listed above plus 20-in wheels, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless smartphone charging and special styling.

2020 Chevrolet Colorado - The Canyon's Chevrolet-badged stablemate is obviously worth considering, as the trucks are virtually identical. The 2020 Colorado isn't offered in an equivalent Denali trim, but the Canyon can't match the hardcore Colorado ZR2 off-road model.
2020 Toyota Tacoma - Sportier than the Canyon and more off-road oriented, the 2020 Tacoma is also less comfortable, spacious and refined. You might have more fun in the Tacoma, but you may be less happy with your daily drive.
2020 Honda Ridgeline - The 2020 Ridgeline is effectively the Tacoma's polar opposite, and thus the Canyon rests somewhere in between them. While it's effectively a crossover with a truck bed, the Ridgeline's truck capabilities are nevertheless impressive, and it boasts superior space, comfort and versatility as a result of its unique structure.
2020 Ford Ranger - All-new for 2019, the latest Ranger impresses with its up-market cabin, segment-leading towing numbers and high-end tech.
Used GMC Sierra - If you need more capabilities than the Canyon offers, consider a used Sierra. Given that the pricing for a new Canyon and a new Sierra isn't that different, you should be able to get a comparable used version.
