About the GMC Terrain

Designed to cater to the needs of those who refuse to blend in with the crowd, the GMC Terrain combines precision engineering with impeccable style to create a truly remarkable crossover SUV. Beneath the hood of the Terrain lies a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that delivers an inspiring combination of responsive performance and impressive fuel economy. Paired with the confidence of available all-wheel drive, the Terrain has the confidence to help you tackle even the most challenging situations. Step inside the cabin and you’ll find an interior that’s designed to adapt to your active lifestyle. Available perforated leather-trimmed upholstery helps ease stress and tension on your daily commute while an available hands-free power liftgate provides simplified access to the rear cargo area. A full suite of GMC Pro Safety driver-assistance technologies provides a helping hand when you need it the most behind the wheel of your GMC Terrain.

What the Critics Say

“It’s sinister up front, but quickly flows into a chic rear end with a blacked-out rear pillar that makes the roof appear to float. The business-class body wraps around a truck-like cabin with ruggedly outsized controls and blocky shapes. It’s a handsome look, framed in low-gloss materials and stitched with fine leather in the Denali edition.” — The Car Connection

“Inside, the Terrain offers seating for up to five people, though four will be much more comfortable, especially on longer drives. The front seats offer generous head, leg and hip room, and higher trims bring plush leathers that truly feel premium and expensive. The Terrain also features excellent sound deadening materials, which gives it a luxurious, isolated feel.” — Forbes

What’s New for 2022

For 2022, the GMC Terrain receives a significant exterior refresh that’s highlighted by a new front fascia and new grille designs found across the model range. You’ll also notice redesigned LED headlamps, LED taillamps, and alloy wheel designs on all models as well. Three new exterior colors making their debut this year are Desert Sand Metallic, Cayenne Red Metallic, and Marine Metallic. Inside the cabin, the Terrain boasts new interior fabrics, standard wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, and Amazon Alexa capabilities. Finally, a new Terrain AT4 trim launches this year with a unique off-road-focused appearance and standard AWD.
