2023 GMC Terrain ‘Modes’ Advert Highlights Go-Anywhere Attitude: Video6
The 2023 GMC Terrain is the sixth model year for the second-gen crossover, ushering in several important changes and updates over the fully refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain. Now, a new video advertisement highlights the 2023 GMC Terrain as a go-anywhere, do-anything sort of vehicle.
Clocking at just 30 seconds, the video shows the GMC Terrain as it explores a range of different conditions and locales.
“Of course, the GMC Terrain offers All-Wheel Drive mode,” the video narrator states. “But what about supernova mode?” the narrator asks as two passengers gaze at the night sky through the sunroof.
Next, we see a rugby player opening the tailgate of the GMC Terrain using the hands-free system as he loads up his gear. “Or weekend warrior mode?” the narrator asks, followed by “You don’t see that every day mode” as a pair of GMC Terrain passengers come across a herd of bison crossing a highway.
“How about out of the office mode?” the narrator asks as a remote worker sits down with her laptop on top of a hill overlooking the ocean. “Or even ‘are you out of your mind?’ mode,” the narrator continues as the GMC Terrain is piloted down a steep, rocky trail.

Per a GM Authority exclusive published last June, one of the biggest updates introduced with the 2023 GMC Terrain is a new engine. The turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine that was offered previously has been replaced by the new turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine, rated at 175 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm, as compared to ratings of 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm for the 1.5L I4 LYX.
Under the body panels, the GMC Terrain rides on the GM D2 platform. Production takes place at the GM San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico.

How about cracked oil pan mode and broken air dam mode.
They are taking a risk show that kind of driving as while it can do limited off roading you always have the watch this Mode kind of guy doing something stupid.
Just don’t ask about performance mode because Mary has eliminated it by killing off the 2.0T engine upgrade and thus downgrading towing. You will not have any kind of fun unless it’s with a GM approved EV!
Performance mode, haha. No one tows with these, the 2.0 barely sold and drove down margins. Not a big loss for the demographic that buys these.
For an engine that supposedly never sold there sure seems to be a ton of dual exhaust 2.0T badged Nox and Terrains driving around and on dealer lots from 2018 to 2021. The Denali Terrains seem to exclusively have this engine up until it was deleted in 2022 and most SLT’s have the 2.0T. There are also a lot of LT and Premier Nox’s driving around and on the used lots. As usual GM spins it the way they want you to see it by purposely holding back 2.0T production in its last year so that it looked like nobody was buying them. I believe my own eyes over GM spin!
I’ve already experienced ‘are you out of your mind?’ mode when I saw the local dealership’s GMC Terrain prices.
I can see a lot of enthusiasm with this terrain and many people liking the 2.0 l engine in this vehicle and I must say I agree with them this 1.5 engine might be the engine for this vehicle in this segment but I won’t run to the dealership to purchase one many better options out there it’s to bad because I really the Denali trim is sharp looking but the 1.5 is definitely under powered in my opinion for gm professional grade which I think they forget about !!!!!
