The 2021 GMC Terrain is the fourth model year of the latest second-generation vehicle, arriving with only a few changes over the preceding 2020 model year. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the 2021 GMC Terrain is no longer available to order in Red Quartz Tintcoat paint.
The Red Quartz Tintcoat paint option was previously available on all 2021 GMC Terrain trim levels, with the exception of the base-level SL. The optional paint hue was available for an extra $645, and is tagged with RPO code GPJ.
The color is no longer available to order as 2021 GMC Terrain models in that specific paint option have been built out as of December of last year, which means General Motors has completed production for the model year in that particular configuration. Although the paint option is no longer available to order, customers may still find examples available on dealer lots.
Remaining available exterior colors include Blue Emerald Metallic, Graphite Gray Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, Quicksilver Metallic, Ebony Twilight Metallic, and White Frost Tricoat. Summit White is equipped as standard.
The 2021 GMC Terrain was original expected to usher in a refresh for the crossover, but due to complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the model refresh was pushed back to the 2022 model year.
That said, the 2021 model year still introduces a few notable changes, including deletion of the Smokey Quartz Metallic exterior paint option, and deletion of the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine. The 2021 GMC Terrain is only available with the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, which produces 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, and connects to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both FWD and AWD are offered.
