The GMC Terrain crossover is generating strong sales in The Great White North.
Speaking to GM Authority during a recent media event, a brand spokesperson confirmed the GMC Terrain is currently running at a 15-day turning rate in Canada. This means that an average of fifteen days passes between when the vehicle arrives at a Canadian dealership lot and when it’s sold to a customer. A turning rate is a good indicator of the overall level of demand for a given vehicle, and with most Terrain models spending very little time on a dealer lot before finding a buyer, it seems as though this nameplate is popular among Canadian consumers.
GMC also recently divulged to GM Authority that its aspirational sub-brands, such as Denali, AT4 and Elevation, account for a large percentage of their overall sales in the country. Of every GMC vehicle sold in Canada, 26 percent are a Denali, 25 percent are an AT4 and 22 percent are an Elevation.
The 2022 GMC Terrain introduced a mid-cycle enhancement (MCE) to the second-generation crossover, bringing with it revised exterior styling, new exterior and interior color options, a rejigged trim level lineup and new technology like wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A new Black Diamond Edition package was also recently introduced to the model’s order books, which is available to order with the Denali trim level only. This package includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Denali Premium Package content (PCV)
- SkyScape power sunroof (C3U)
- 19-inch aluminum painted wheels with After Midnight finish (PJO)
The 2022 GMC Terrain comes standard with the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine. Output is rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. It rides on the GM D2 platform and is produced at the GM San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico.
