A 170-hp turbo four is now your only option.
GMC's off-road-focused AT4 trim is available for the Acadia crossover, Sierra pickup, and Yukon SUV, but it's never been available for the GMC Terrain compact crossover - until now. As part of a 2022 model year refresh, the Terrain is now available in that tougher trim, which adds a rugged front steel skid plate, larger off-road tires, and black exterior chrome trim. This marks the first time GMC's entire lineup has been given the AT4 treatment.
Also as part of the refresh, the entire Terrain model lineup has been updated with a more rugged front fascia and a bolder grille. Redesigned LED front headlights and rear taillights also freshen up the styling.
Four new color options are available for the 2022 Terrain, along with new wheel designs available in 18- and 19-inches. The interior is updated with new trim and fabric materials. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now offered as standard, and an 8-inch driver display is offered as standard in the range-topping Denali trim. For the first time, a head-up display is available for the SLT (and new AT4 trim) and comes as standard in the Denali.
The entire GMC Terrain lineup is equipped with the GMC Pro Safety suite from the factory, which includes automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, following distance indicator, and automatic high-beam assists.
Under the hood, the new GMC Terrain is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The 2021 Terrain was also offered with a more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 generating 252 hp and 260 lb-ft, but this unit is no longer available for the 2022 model. Sales for the Terrain SLE, SLT and AT4 will start in summer 2021, while the 2022 GMC Terrain Denali will arrive in dealerships this fall.
