As the seventh and last model year of the nameplate’s second generation the 2024 GMC Terrain will include only a few minor changes and updates from the 2023 GMC Terrain. It is the final model year before the crossover’s third generation debuts in calendar 2024 with a “GMC Professional Grade upgrade” per GM President Mark Reuss.
Now, GM Authority is taking a closer look at the 2024 GMC Terrain, specifically the different paint colors on offer.
GM offers eight different exterior paint color options in total for the 2024 GMC Terrain. Four of the paint hues are available across all four of the crossover’s four trim levels, including the SLE, SLT, AT4, and range-topping Denali trims.
The other four paint colors are restricted from certain trims. Downpour Metallic (paint code GXP) is available on all trims except the AT4. Riptide Metallic (paint code GJV) is unavailable on the Denali trim while White Frost Tricoat (paint code G1W) is unavailable on the base SLE. Deep Bronze Metallic (paint code GXN) is on offer exclusively for the Denali.
Summit White (paint code GAZ) is the only exterior tint offered as a no-charge option for all trim levels. Five of the remaining colors are priced at an extra cost of $495, while Volcanic Red Tintcoat (GMT) is $645 extra and White Frost Tricoat (G1W) is priced at $1,095.
Riptide Metallic and Downpour Metallic are new for the 2024 model year, while GM is dropping two Terrain paint colors for 2024, namely the Marine Metallic and Desert Sand Metallic paint options. The table below gives a full breakdown of the 2024 GMC Terrain paint color availability:

GM Authority has also provided a thorough look at 2024 GMC Terrain prices, including the many options available with the model year. Starting prices are lower than equivalent 2023 model-year vehicles for most configurations. The cheapest configuration, a front-wheel-drive Terrain SLE, starts at $30,095, while the most expensive, the all-wheel-drive Denali, starts at $39,995.
As a reminder, the GMC Terrain is motivated by the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine, which is rated at 175 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Power reaches the wheels via the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. As for structure, the GMC Terrain rides on the GM D2 platform.
