Production of the 2022 GMC Terrain was offline between June and November of the 2021 calendar year, with very few units of the crossover SUV currently available on dealer lots.
The GM San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico is the only facility that builds the GMC Terrain crossover. At present, dealer inventory for the 2022 GMC Terrain is extremely low, with the only models available being SLE and SLT trim levels as a tiered rollout was planned, with AT4 and Denali production having started on the week of January 10th, 2022.
Production of the 2022 GMC Terrain has been disrupted multiple times over the past year due to the ongoing global microchip shortage, with the production restart date pushed back on several occasions before getting back on track on the week of November 1st. As a result, available vehicle inventory and sales have both been deeply impacted.
With regard to sales, General Motors sold just 47,488 units of the GMC Terrain through the 2021 calendar year, a decrease of 44.79 percent as compared to the 86,020 units sold the year prior.

As a reminder, the 2022 GMC Terrain introduces a model refresh for the nameplate, arriving as the fifth model year of the second-generation vehicle. The Terrain was originally slated to receive a model refresh for the 2021 model year, but due to complications arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the refresh was delayed by a year.
Motivation is derived exclusively from the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, which is rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. A GM nine-speed automatic transmission is on hand to harness output, with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive on board to put it to the ground.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that no units of the 2022 GMC Terrain were produced since June 2021.
