There will be more paint jobs in the likes of the current rimbrake SL frameset. I'm not allowed to talk about specific frame features in general, but it will be more aero.
Targeted msrp range?

Cool "news" Image

EDIT
Curious if there will be both disc and rim brake versions available of the new TCR frameset.

Local dealer said he'd seen the colourways for next year... and there was a red/black fade like GVA's.. any more news on anyone else who's seen/heard anything?

No changes from 2019 that I can see. I assume the rim brake model will follow suit

The name though,
"TCR ADVANCED 2 DISC PRO COMPACT"
and
"TCR ADVANCED 1 DISC PRO COMPACT"
...

That suggest there will be other type other than compact type?

Damn, actually really like the plain black and white colourway. Clean and simple!

Compact seems to be referencing their 'Compact Road geometry' which isn't new.. in fact there's nothing new here.. bah humbug!

Been waiting patiently to see if a new TCR would come out this year as I am eyeing a new bike and am a sucker for the newest frame available. Spoke to LBS this week and per shop owner he told me that all we will get this year is new color schemes and no new design. Must admit pretty bummed to hear this but hoping he is wrong and maybe Giant is just good at keeping secrets.

The official dealer product release, in Australia, for Giant's 2020 bike range is early August. Going by past years, the higher end stuff won't be available until later in the year.

BTW, I work in a Giant dealership.

Interesting. On the one hand I love the blue one. On the other hand I'm slightly disappointed that there really might not be a new generation frame for the 2020 model year.

They will stagger TCR releases so a new Advanced SL is released around the TdF, and then a new Advanced Pro will be released in early Spring as a 2021 model. The fact there aren’t any eTap AXS MY2020 Advanced SL models out right now is a good omen.

It was suggested today that the new tcr would be more like the liv Langma, however I had a look today at the langma and the only difference I can see is the shape of the down tube, which, on the leading edge is round (kamm tail ish shape)... anyone else know any differences between the tcr and the langma?
