The redesigned GMC Canyon will begin to diverge from its Chevrolet Colorado counterpart next year to more closely resemble other nameplates under the GMC brand.
Redesigned versions of both midsize pickups are expected to go on sale next year.
The windshields appear more raked and the overall dimensions appear bigger, with an emphasis on improved aerodynamics.
The Canyon appears to be geared for off-roading with more of a high-clearance bumper, based on spy photos obtained by Automotive News. The front fascia diverts from that of the Colorado and more closely matches the rest of GMC's lineup. It has an LED signature lamp at the top of the front end and primary lighting below. The lighting configuration would resemble the lighting on the Sierra full-size pickup.
GMC is adding an AT4X trim with rocker protectors and 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels to the next-generation Canyon lineup for optimized off-road performance, with plans to show the model this summer.
