Any 7/8/9 Speed derailleur with enough capacity (essentially cage length) will work. Shifting quality is about the system, not a single component. Replacing just the derailleur, even with the very best, will make little difference.

gshenk's post is excellent general answer, here's the specific answer for the setup on the Digger Comp. The Digger comes with an RX-600 40t crank, RD-RX812 derailleur and CS-M7000 11-42 cassette.

In such cases, I often check ebay or similar marketplaces for a used/best offer/parts only item to scavenge the needed part from. One often needs to be patient and make multiple offers before succeeding. As far as compatible replacement parts, si.shimano.com documents may indicate compatible parts if you haven't checked there yet; alternatively, a local bike ...

I can't speak to GRX specifically, but one of the Old Saws of cycling is "Buy the bike you want" which means to avoid buying a bike with the immediate intention of upgrading/replacing parts. Generally speaking, a new bike will work well together - by swapping things about, that new-bike feel may diminish. Unless your LBS is really nice and credits ...
