The 2021 GMC Terrain continues to be offered as a compact five-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV).
The 2021 GMC Terrain offers two gasoline engine choices:
|Engine||Fuel||Aspiration||Transmission||Horsepower @ RPM||Torque @ RPM||Axle|
|1.5L LYX I4||Gasoline||Turbocharged||6-speed automatic MNH||170 @ 5600||203 @ 2000-4000||3.50, 3.87|
|2.0L LTG I4||Gasoline||Turbocharged||9-speed automatic M3D||252 @ 5500||260 @ 2000||3.17|
An engine auto stop-start defeat switch was introduced for the 2021 model year.
Like all second-generation units of the GMC Terrain, the 2021 Terrain rides on the GM D2 platform shared with the following vehicles:
- Chevrolet Cruze (second-generation)
- Chevrolet Equinox (third-generation)
- Buick Envision (first-generation)
- Buick Excelle (second-generation)
- Buick Verano (second-generation)
The 2021 GMC Terrain follows the regular GM model year rollover sequence and launch in or before the third quarter of the 2020 calendar year.
We expect that the current, second-generation GMC Terrain will remain in production for at least the 2021 and 2022 model years, and that an all-new, future GMC Terrain will launch on or after the 2023 model year.
