2021 GMC Canyon Redesign

The mid-size pickup truck will continue to ride on its GMT 31XX platform. The new-gen model comes in 2022 and that is when we expect for GMC to introduce new VSS-T architecture. However, the upcoming model will get small exterior modifications. The 2021 GMC Canyon still offers a popular Black Out exterior trim. Moreover, Nightfall Package is available again.

The new model will introduce new exterior colors, two of them. The front fascia comes with larger headlights and a wider grille. In the back, things will stay intact. Canyon will continue to offer two-bed choices and the removable tailgate is optional. Higher trim levels will get additional chrome trims. The rest of the exterior will largely remain.

Interior Design

The cabin will remain practical and modern. The 2021 GMC Canyon will introduce numerous updates in terms of technology. That includes infotainment system, displays, and phone integrations. We could see new safety equipment but that is not confirmed yet. Besides those changes, the interior will continue in the same manner.

Canyon pickup looks stylish from the inside and interior room is very generous. Wider seats are very supportive and comfort is truly great. Legroom is ample in both rows and fine leather upholstery is optional on the base model. The mid-size pickup truck also offers great safety rating and upper trim levels are very premium for the mid-size segment.
