As GM Authority covered previously, production of the 2022 GMC Terrain has been disrupted multiple times due to the ongoing global microchip shortage. In fact, production of the 2022 Terrain at the GM San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico was halted between June and November of the 2021 calendar year, resulting in very low inventory.
The Terrain was originally set for a model refresh with the 2021 model year, but as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the refresh was delayed until the 2022 model year.
Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Terrain is powered by the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. A GM nine-speed automatic transmission provides the cog swaps, with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive to put it to the ground. Under the body panels, the 2022 GMC Terrain rides on the GM D2 platform.
