The biggest price drop is for the 2022 GMC Terrain Denali AWD, which is now $900 less costly than an equivalent 2021 model-year vehicle, a 2.33-percent price reduction overall. Additionally, 2022 GMC Terrain SLT models are about 2 percent less expensive, with a $700 price cut for both all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive models. Finally, 2022 GMC Terrain SLE models are $600 less expensive, which is also roughly a 2-percent price cut compared to the 2021 model year.

Although the 2022 model year introduces a mid-cycle enhancement for the Terrain nameplate, there are no significant changes in the Terrain’s features and options list to justify the price drop. The refreshed 2022 model is simply more affordable than the preceding 2021 model year.
That said, some of the changes include the deletion of the SL trim level, making the SLE trim the new entry-level model in the GMC Terrain lineup. The 2022 model year also introduces the new off-road-flavored AT4 trim level. LED signature Daytime Running Lamps are now standard across all equipment groups.
Outside, the 2022 GMC Terrain debuts new styling for the front and rear ends. The paint options list now includes Desert Sand Metallic (exclusive to AT4 trims), Marine Metallic, and Cayenne Red Metallic, while Blue Emerald Metallic, Graphite Gray Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, and Red Quartz Tintcoat have all been deleted from the paint options.
Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Terrain is offered exclusively with the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, which is rated at 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Under the skin is the GM D2 platform. The new Terrain is produced at the GM San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico.
