Here’s When 2023 GMC Terrain Production Will Start3
The 2023 GMC Terrain will be the sixth model year for the second-generation nameplate, introducing a few changes and updates over the fully refreshed 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned when production of the 2023 GMC Terrain will officially get underway.
According to GM Authority sources, the start of regular production for the 2023 GMC Terrain is scheduled to kick off on August 22nd, 2022. As GM Authority covered previously, production of the 2023 Chevy Equinox will also kick off on August 22nd.
Per a previous GM Authority report, GM is set to increase production of the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain at the GM San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico. The production increase for these two models follows the end of production the Chevy Onix at the San Luis Potosí plant, as announced in February. Although Chevy Onix production at the facility ended in May, the Onix will continue to be sold in Mexico with units imported from China, the first shipment of which was sent on May 22nd.
The GMC Terrain was originally set to receive a refresh for the 2021 model year. However, due to complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the refresh was delayed until the 2022 model year. Updates over the 2021 model year include new exterior styling and new exterior paint options, with four exterior colors deleted, including Blue Emerald Metallic, Graphite Gray Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, and Red Quartz Tintcoat.
Additionally, the 2022 GMC Terrain introduces small revisions to the interior styling and materials, as well as all-new interior trims and the addition of the new Head-up Display feature for SLT and AT4 trim levels.
As for the goodies under the hood, the 2022 GMC Terrain is offered with just one powertrain option, namely 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. Going forward, however, the 2023 GMC Terrain will be equipped with a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Under the skin is the GM D2 platform.

A new turbo charge engine with only 5 more hp I ! That’s not a new engine that a joke !! Put a real engine back in the terrain offer the 2.0 l back with 252 hp and 258 lbs of torque gm is becoming so pathetic u think with all the other manufacturers giving the consumer things they want and fighting for market share no wonder gm sales numbers are never number 1 or 2 or 3 for that matter just can’t compete with Toyota Honda and Hyundai!!! Way to go gm will give 5 hp more and maybe you might change your mind and by a gm !!!
2022 was equipped with 1.5 I4 LYX engine, You stated 2023 would come with an all-new four-cylinder turbocharged engine, you give absolutely zero information on the 2023 model engine. We know the spec on the 2022 model, give us something on the new engine for 2023.
Dwight the new engine for the 2023 terrain is basically 1.5 engine with 5 hp now and the the torque spec hasn’t changed I was hoping they would at least put the 2.0 l LSY engine in the terrain but no sticking with the 1.5 engine with 5 h p more what really is the point of that !!! I can’t figure it out !!!
