Four months after its official presentation in March, the refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain has been officially announced in Mexico, the only country where the model is currently being manufactured. General Motors just confirmed that the 2022 Terrain will hit the Mexican market later this year with significant design updates and distinctive trim levels that will make it stand out in its segment.
The refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain represents the fifth model year of the second-generation crossover, and includes a substantial makeover, inspired by the latest evolution of GMC’s design language. In addition, the brand’s entry-level vehicle will expand its lineup in Mexico with the addition of two trims while increasing its technological and safety features.
“The GMC Terrain is proudly made in Mexico and its quality is recognized by GMC customers worldwide,” said Marketing Manager for GMC at GM Mexico, Wilberto del Ángel, in a statement. “For the 2022 model year, it will incorporate important improvements and novelties in design, equipment and trim levels, and we are sure that this refreshed model will strengthen the position of the brand’s compact SUV, making it stand out in its highly competitive segment,” he added.
The main new aspect of the refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain, both in Mexico and in other markets, is the introduction of the AT4 trim level for first time in the model’s history. In addition to the now more-imposing range-topping Denali, the new 2022 Terrain AT4 has a unique look that includes chrome accents, black wheel with off-road tires as well as standard all-wheel drive and a steel front skid plate.
Although the definitive lineup hasn’t yet been announced for the crossover in Mexico, GM hinted at a Black Edition in the Latin country, as a local variant of the Elevation Edition, as is the case with the GMC Acadia. All versions will arrive with a generous list of technological and safety features, led by the latest generation of the company’s infotainment system that integrates wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Amazon Alexa.
The refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain will be available in Mexico during the last quarter of the year, aiming to improve its positioning in the country’s growing compact crossover segment. All details on trim levels, configurations and pricing for the 2022 Terrain for the Mexican market will be announced closer to its launch date.
