The updates and changes described here are specific to the U.S. market and may be different for other markets.
The 2022 GMC Terrain continues to be offered as a compact five-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV).
The 2022 GMC Terrain offers a single gasoline engine choice:
|Engine||Fuel||Aspiration||Transmission||Horsepower @ RPM||Torque @ RPM||Axle|
|1.5L LYX I4||Gasoline||Turbocharged||9-Speed Automatic MNH||170 @ 5600||203 @ 2000-4000||3.50, 3.87|
An engine auto stop-start defeat switch was introduced for the 2022 model year.
Incidentally, the up-level 2.0 turbo engine will not be returning.
Like all second-generation units of the GMC Terrain, the 2022 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 2022 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 2022 and 2022 model years, and that an all-new, future GMC Terrain will launch on or after the 2023 model year.
