General Motors unveiled the refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain just last week, and with it, the new off-road-focused AT4 trim level. Although GM did not officially confirm as much in last week’s debut, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with the matter that the new 2022 GMC Terrain AT4 will be offered exclusively with AWD.
Interestingly, the AT4 will be the first Terrain trim level offered exclusively with AWD.
Other notable upgrades for the Terrain AT4 include a unique front fascia, gloss black-painted wheels wrapped in off-road tires, a steel protective front skid plate, and AT4 exterior badging.
Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Terrain will be powered exclusively by the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine. General Motors originally planned to offer the 2022 GMC Terrain with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine as well, but as GM Authority covered previously, The General ended up changing those plans, and will no longer offer the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine with the 2022 GMC Terrain.
Back in July of 2020, GM Authority reported that GM dropped the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine from the 2021 GMC Terrain and 2021 Chevy Equinox lineup, leaving the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX as the exclusive powerplant option. The turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX will continue to be the lone engine option for the new 2022 GMC Terrain AT4 as well, despite earlier reports to the contrary.
In addition to introducing the new AT4 off-roader trim level, the 2022 GMC Terrain also debuts a restyled front fascia with new C-shaped LED headlamps, revised fog lights and daytime running lights, new LED tail lamps, and further enhancements for the range-topping Terrain Denali. The Elevation Edition is set to return for SLE and SLT trims, while the interior comes standard with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and a new color head-up display for select trims.
