GMC has gone the “Don’t fix if it isn’t broken” route with their midsize truck, the 2018 Canyon Crew Cab for this year. So most of what you have seen in the previous few years, that came with the second generation update stays the same for the 2018 model year as well. That said, GMC has bought out minor equipment upgrades including heated exterior mirrors, optional leather-appointed seats, a couple of new exterior paint jobs, and an active assists tech, the latter of which is only available on trims equipped with the turbo-diesel and V6 gasoline engine. This year also sees the Nightfall package that includes some exclusive paint jobs, blacked-out exterior bits, special badging, bigger 18-inch wheels, and a spray-on bed liner.
