2022 GMC Terrain Side Blind Zone Alert Under Constraint3
The 2022 GMC Terrain is the fifth model year of the latest second-generation crossover, introducing a wealth of changes and updates per the nameplate’s second-gen mid-cycle enhancement. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 GMC Terrain’s Side Blind Zone Alert is currently under constraint, as is one other safety feature.
According to GM Authority sources, some units of the 2022 GMC Terrain that would normally be equipped with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert will be built without these features, as of July 4th production. Rear Cross Traffic Alert is tagged with RPO code UFG, while Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert is tagged with RPO code UKC.
Affected units will be eligible for a dealer retrofit of these features at a later date. Affected units include 2022 GMC Terrain SLE, SLT, and AT4 trim levels. Units of the 2022 GMC Terrain Denali are not affected by this constraint.
For 2022 GMC Terrain SLE, SLT, and AT4 trims, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert are normally included and only available with the GMC Pro Safety Plus package, tagged with RPO code PED. Meanwhile 2022 GMC Terrain Denali trim levels are equipped as standard with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.
Notably, these two features are also under constraint for the 2022 Chevy Equinox, as GM Authority exclusively reported previously.
The 2022 GMC Terrain introduces a refresh for the crossover nameplate. Although the Terrain was originally slated to receive a refresh for the 2021 model year, complications arising as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the refresh back to the 2022 model year.
Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Terrain features a single powerplant option, namely 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. Under the skin is the GM D2 platform, while production takes place at the GM San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico.

These are important safety features that shouldn’t be absent. It’s one thing for a heated steering wheel or heated/cooled seat to be on constraint but these safety features should be on every vehicle. $50 discount and a promise to retro when we get xtra chips in a few yrs isn’t going to help if u get into an accident that these features could of helped prevent. Let’s prioritize gm
I know, this is an extreme safety feature that saves so many lives, how can they pick and choose what to remove; no way its because of a certain type of chip specific to that option. Anyways, I wish there was another way to safely operate the vehicle as this had only come to light in recent years and wasn’t a problem in the past. What are drivers going to do to safely change lanes now? Only thing I can think of is turn their heads, but that is too much to ask and a huge inconvenience that doesn’t guarantee a safe lane change. Screw GM and all manufacturers not having enough chips and putting our lives at risk with blatant missing safety features they can’t control!
Mirrors should have indicators due to the terrain having a large frame and the blind spot causes several problems. I tried to get them included with my new car I purchased and it was not available. I want to bring the car back
