2022 GMC Terrain Gets New Head-Up Display26
General Motors has pulled the sheets on the refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain, introducing a wealth of changes and upgrades for the compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV). Among these is the addition of a new Head-Up Display feature.
The new Head-Up Display for the 2022 GMC Terrain includes a color readout that provides critical information, like the selected drive mode, engine rpm, and vehicle speed, all of which is located just below the driver’s field of vision and above the steering wheel. The feature helps to keep the driver’s eyes on the road, while also adding an extra dash of technological flair to the Terrain’s cabin space.
The 2022 GMC Terrain offers the new color Head-Up Display on SLT and AT4 trim levels, while equipping the feature as standard on the range-topping Denali trim level.
The GMC Terrain was originally set to introduce a mid-cycle refresh for the 2021 model year. However, due to complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the refresh was pushed back to the 2022 model year.
In addition to offering a new Head-Up Display, the 2022 GMC Terrain debuts a restyled front fascia with a new grille, new C-shaped LED headlamps, new fog lights, and new daytime running lamps, as well as new LED tail lamps. The cabin space features new materials, plus wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, while Amazon Alexa is available via the new Technology Package.
The 2022 GMC Terrain also introduces the new AT4 off-roader trim level, which includes a unique front fascia, a steel skid plate, black-painted wheels with off-road tires, and unique badging.
The refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain was originally set to introduce a new turbocharged 2.0L I4 gasoline engine, namely 2.0L I4 LSY, which was set to join the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX in the lineup following the discontinuation of the 2.0L I4 LTG during the 2021 model year. However, those plans changed, and the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX remains the lone engine option with the the 2022 model year. A nine-speed automatic is the only transmission option.
The 2022 GMC Terrain is expected to arrive this Summer in SLE, SLT, and AT4 trims, with the Denali set to arrive in the Fall.

Big deal did they not have that in the 90s. A tach useless have not had a use for one of those for a long time,whatever gear you select it will upshift before the redline.
Wow gm give people eye candy and yet with the other hand give u less power specially on there top of the line trim Terrain Denali. Gm you really know how to distance your customers from your product!!! Thank god for imports!!!
Most all imports are in the same 170-190 hp range, so they are right inline. With a low take rate on that engine this move keeps the cost down when in a market such as compact CUV’s HP is one of the very last considerations if at all. No big thing should be made of this.
It is painfully obvious that GM is sunsetting the Equinox and Terrain. Three years from now they will be discontinued and replaced with something else.
They will be around for the remainder of their cycle and then a new redesigned will be brought out for the next gen, they are too important and too high of a seller to sunset them and replace them. They are just reducing some costs by eliminating an option with a low take rate and that is nary a consideration at all in this class of vehicle…
Yes I agree very much sad but true I always thought gm would always keep the Denali trim exciting but I guess I was wrong !!
Understand it’s inline with import engine size and horsepower but I personally think the 2.0 l was perfect engine for the terrain . But for the Denali it was a must just because it’s professional grade it only would make sense well I least think so
How many did you buy while it have the 2.0 engine? Or when it had the V6?
What new colors are coming? Please,no more grays..
And.. please put paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The current Feminine Shifter buttons are very disappointing..
My wife drives a 2018 SLT Terrain (which I think looks better than this update by the way). The manual shift buttons in these is not meant to be driven like they are used in a sports coupe…such as a Camaro SS (which we also own). In the Terrain you select a gear and the car will only shift as high as the gear…but it will shift up from first to that gear on it’s own. There is no reason to put the shift buttons on the wheel. The hate for how the buttons operate and where they are located are way overblown. We felt the same way initially, until we actually drive the car. The gear select buttons work great, and placing them where they are frees up a ton of center console room.
when i go up my long hill everyday i want the tranny in gear #4 OK? hard to do with the current
girly shifter buttons. give me the paddles!
Yes paddle shifters would be great specially on Denali trim !!! Might as well look like it has power even though 1.5 sure doesn’t !!!
Paddle shifters are even more disappointing in a CUV.
Folks low end Denali models have much smaller margins so you are not going to get all that comes in a $88,000 full size Denali.
Pricing and options are to scale you pay more you get more. $35,000 is not as much vehicle as it used to be.
Totally agree it was a nice thought whiled it lasted !! It a pipe dream I guess!
The 1.5 is barely ok in a Malibu, its got to genuinely suck in one of these…..
We own a 2018 SLT with the 1.5 and the 9 speed (wife’s daily driver). I had the same fears and I was certain we’d want the 2.0. But once I drove it those fears subsided. Is it fast? No. You can be cruising along, plant your right foot all the way to the floor and it just kind of goes without any such dramatics at all. Not super great for passing someone on a single lane road. It takes off from a stop at an OK pace, but still on the slow side. But that’s not where it shines. It shines because of how GM has tuned this thing for most torque and that fantastic 9 speed…and that torque is nicely on the low end of the rpm range. I’d say around 2,000 to 2,500 is where the torque is most applied. The thing will climb up hills at highway speed without needing to shift down. it does a better job at this than my Colorado with the 3.6 V6 which makes 130 more horsepower. If the Terrain was always whiney at highway speeds, begging for downshifts just to keep moving along, I’d feel differently, but it doesn’t do that all. Also I have a 2016 Camaro SS, so I’m familiar with what decent power feels like.
I have a 17 Malibu with the 1.5 and 12 V6 Camaro so I know what I am talking about too and the Malibu is a bit of a slug, its ok for a basic sedan but I would have rather have a 2.0 version. It’s not my primary driver so it doesn’t bother me as much, but I feel its lack of torque when I drive it, I have an 05 G6 GT with the 200hp 3500 V6 that feels like muscle car compared to the 1.5 Malibu…….
Gm is down sizing along all there modes from what I can see . I was hoping that they would of stick to its original plan for 2022 would of been happy with the 2.0 LSY engine since I can’t have 2,0 l LTG but 1.5 hmmm not sure what about towing capacity it’s that gone away also !!!
Not sure if your 17 Malibu has the 6 speed or 9 speed (I’m guessing 6 speed?) but I have read that the 1.5 Equinox with the 6 speed felt slower than the 1.5 Terrain with the 9 speed. I don’t doubt that at all.
So you’re complaining about the 1.5 that you bought but didn’t upgrade to the more powerful 2.0 that you’re begging for now. You had the chance to show GM how important the 2.0 was and yet you didn’t. Obviously it’s not as bad as you portray.
If your reading comprehension was above a 2nd grade level you would have read the part where it wrote that it wasn’t my primary driver, so since the price was right and I wasn’t going to be driving it, we bought it.
The 1.5’s barely adequate performance in a $25K sedan that I bought with $4000 in discounts for $100 over invoice is different that offering that same motor in a heavier near $40K Terrain.
My Malibu is the 6 speed.
The only person begging here is you, for attention and an argument with your crappy comment, the adults are talking, go away…..
Wow so it has 1990’s tech. Big deal it’s still going to be considered a rental car with it’s wimpy 170 base and only engine and sub par interior.
2.0T/9A should be standard in the GMC. Dropping the only good engine reeks of old GM bad bean-counting decisions. *ALL* of the competitors have better engines than the GM 1.5T.
I will never understand the Terrain. How anybody in any design department let this go out the door. I know styling is subjective but this thing is just…. That said, the concept of a plexi plate that is used as a HUD is so simple and cost effective, that’s brilliant. I’ve know people that have had HUD windshields replaced and have had to have it done over because the shop ignored the HUD. With that in regard, hopefully the data provided is done so in an intelligent manner. As a person with an XT4, I think it is a proper vehicle and it fits my needs and wants. With one exception and it is infuriating. I am somewhat tall but I also prefer to run the steering down as low as possible. When that is done, the wheel blocks the upper tier of data in the display. It is as if the designers paid absolutely no attention that anybody would do that or would solve the flaw the designer disregarded. IOW, the cluster looks great out of the vehicle but when the pieces are put together somebody goofed. And that seems to be how the Terrain is handled as a total.
Totally agree all gm competitors have bigger engine f A C 2.0 ford has 2.0 engine in there new broncos Nissan Rogue bigger engine and etc etc and gm going less and less gm decision makers need to come to the party !!!
