looks a lot like the sierra but supposedly the AT4 canyon. a ton of pics posted look like same old 2019s and earlier. maybe only the AT4 gets a redesign like the bison did and the on road models come later......or fake news i suppose

So this isn't direct news on the 2020, but it is relevant. This is the factory they make the mid size trucks. I imagine if they did not get the tax cut then GM might have moved their factory and that could have delayed the 2020. I'm glad to hear that Missouri isn't playing around. I like how the governor is like "we ain't playin. We want jobs".

Ain't no way they were moving the 2020 model at this point. The earliest move would have been 2021 model, and even that would be a push.

Being a former manufacturing engineer, why can't they add more color options to the ordering process? Why can't I pay $1000 extra and them spray green on the car instead of white, black, or gray. They used to sell Emerald Green Metallic and that's all I want. We have so few options when it comes to color.

Because you would slow them down and force a special buy on that color.

If you want to order 500 trucks in one color, they would be interested.

Back in the 1980s, someone approached AT&T and wanted to order the telephone connection modules for their new New York corporate offices in Dusty Rose. At that time, all of the plastic parts were molded from ABS, made by Borg Warner. None of us wanted to do this limited run of about 500 units in this special color. Required Borg Warner to run special run of plastic, just needed maybe 1000 pounds. (We were using something like 250,000 pounds a month in Ivory, to explain the scope of this run.) Then, we had to set up and run 3-4 plastic parts in Dusty Rose, keep track of them through the manufacturing & assembly process, and then ship them out.

I quoted all kinds of setup charges, bumped all of the costs up to the point that an item we sold for $2.00 in Ivory was going to cost them $5.00 plus something like a $10,000.00 setup fee. I knew this would convince them not to buy it. WRONG. They spent the money and we ran the special order. I kept a couple of the parts in my personal museum at my desk, guess I left them there when I moved on in my career.

Take a look at the Canyons. You can get them in White, Black, or Red. Anything else from the color palette has a $495 upcharge.

I'm excited to see them, but I'm gonna hold on to mine for at least 100k first. Not even at 30k yet on my 2016, so I've got a bit.

There is still nothing on the 2020s online. It's all speculative information.

Sure you can google "2020 Colorado" or whatever and get tons of images and article links, but nothing is official.

If there was anything major coming down the pike, it would have been leaked out.

My crystal ball says they are going to offer these trucks in White, Black, Red, and probably some version of silver/gray.

Engine & transmission, same.

CCSB, CCLB and ECLB still offered. Rear bumper still included, a tailgate is still included. There will be a radio or two included. Four tires and some form of a spare. Rear backup camera. Headlights, tail lights, horn, all standard.

I don't foresee a major redesign for some time to come. I agree with others that it will be bits and pieces added or subtracted.

EV is where GM is putting a major focus right now. Including how to do it in their trucks. Hence the parlay for a slice of Rivian that didn't come to pass. (Rivian didn't want to play as a GM exclusive and is trying partner with Ford and Honda)
So GM is back to its own dime for EV truck R&D.

I place a small bet that the next big redo of the Twins will include an EV variant.

All vehicles have modern headlights, I am not sure if there is a passenger vehicle out there still with sealed beam headlights (the full size vans do but they are commercial only I believe).

I know what you are hinting at though as they don't have LED headlights. The headlights on the trucks aren't bad by any means, they just aren't the flashy, super expensive LED option that is all the rage these days. Those cost 5 times the price and provide maybe 25% more lighting, I will keep my halogens thank you with a lower vehicle price and replacement cost...

My H9 PIAA halogens are pretty damn bright. I'm ok with it. Pretty close to OEM HIDs that I've had.

Colorado info also up.

Looks like the big change on GMC and Chevy is a remote locking tailgate.

Also now available is the 'Safety package', which has collision warning and lane departure alerts, but no mention of radar-guided cruise control..

I can't configure a new order for the 2020 Colorado yet, but I expect to be able to order them in June according to consensus and allocation. I'll update then.

For what it's worth, after a quick scan I don't see any different options for the 2020 vs the 2019. Safety package mentioned before came in 2019. Generally they won't add adaptive cruise control during refreshes, only during redesigns.

On one hand I'm a little disappointed. On the other hand it could save me $1k+ picking one up off the lot where I would've probably ordered otherwise. Let the games begin...

I think the safety package can be had on theZ71 and All terrain for 20. That isn't an option for 19
