2020 GMC Canyon Diesel
The 2020 GMC Canyon diesel model receives several small updates and changes, consisting of minor updates to the exterior, interior, and technology. The mid-cycle refresh, otherwise referred to as a facelift or a mid-cycle enhancement (MCE), will not take place for the second-generation Canyon. Instead, the midsize pickup truck will gain a small number of slightly more significant changes for the 2021 model year and then be overhauled for the 2023 model year.
