A couple of months ago, a Jeep Wrangler was spotted going through testing at GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. That naturally resulted in speculation that the company was thinking about a competitor for the Wrangler and the upcoming Ford Bronco.
2022 GMC Canyon Rumors
While that still stays unofficial, a report from Automotive News suggests it’s possible. According to the publication, the company might introduce a rugged SUV based on the next generation of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.
If the report is proper, it might be a while before we see the vehicle as the mid-sized pickups aren’t expected to be upgraded up until 2022 or later. This recommends the SUV is still a number of years away– presuming it’s green-lighted in the very first location.
However, that promises as GM is reportedly eyeing a $1 billion (₤ 818/ EUR897) investment in its Wentzville plant which currently builds the Colorado and Canyon. When reports about the financial investment very first appeared in May, there was speculation that a few of the funds could be utilized to build a new mid-sized SUV at the plant. Like the Colorado and Canyon, the SUV would be a body-on-frame vehicle, and this would make it much more rugged and capable than crossovers such as the Acadia and Terrain.
Essentially absolutely nothing is understood about the SUV. However, it might potentially follow in the footsteps of the Bronco and Wrangler by including a detachable roof. That remains unconfirmed, but older full-size Jimmys had a removable hardtop, and so did the 2008 Hummer HX concept.
The SUV does not appear to be the only new model GMC is considering either. The report also mentions a possible sub-compact crossover which could adopt the Granite name that was utilized on a concept in 2010. The model might get here in 2022 or 2023. However, there’s speculation it might get pressed back if GMC chooses to focus the reported SUV rather.
That might be a potentially misstep as crossovers are a hit with customers and GMC’s smallest entry is presently the Terrain which begins at $25,000.
