The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.8
3.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 GMC Canyon has its virtues, but its design is beginning to feel old and it hasn’t done well in crash tests. A new V-6 gives buyers a reason to shop the 2020 Nissan Frontier this year, but waiting for next year’s redesign is a better idea.
