GMC refreshed the second generation of the Terrain SUV in 2021 for the 2022 model-year and gave it some restyled lines and turbocharged engines.
After four years since the introduction of Terrain’s second generation, GMC came with a mid-life cycle refresh for its compact SUV. The new version brought the AT trim level, which was focused more on off-road abilities. Even though the Terrain was not an off-road vehicle, it could handle some rough areas, mud, and snow.

On the outside, the 2021 Terrain showed a different front fascia, with taller headlights and C-shaped daytime running lights. Its twin LED headlamps were stacked one on top of the other. While the rest of the bodywork remained the same as its predecessor, including the taillights, GMC introduced four new colors.

Inside, GMC enhanced the infotainment system and included the wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as a standard feature for the entire range. For the Denali trim level, GMC had an 8” infotainment as part of the package. Another useful feature was the head-up display, which became available as an option for the SLT and AT4 versions and standard on the Denali.

Under the hood, GMC kept most of its previous engines and added an inline-four turbocharged gasoline engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Its state-of-the-art direct-injected system and variable valve timing made it very fuel-efficient.

Built on the same platform with the Buick Envision and the Chevrolet Equinox, the 2018 GMC Terrain was a good answer for economical and affordable SUVs.
The SUV market was growing fast and most car-makers tried to increase their offers in the segment. GM flexed its muscles and developed a new platform for the compact SUV market. The new styling was backed-up by the new technologies involved in the project.

The floating-roof design of the Terrain was a big improvement for the GM design team. While some of the previous SUVs made by GMC were trapped in a conservative design language, the Terrain looked like it was started from a blank sheet of paper, and with a new team. The car was tested in the wind-tunnel to offer a lower drag coefficient. The signature-LED for the daytime running lights, the big grille that looked like a chained-fence and the massive GMC letter in the middle, the Terrain offered a strong and powerful appearance.

Inside, the passengers were delighted by a big interior, obtained due to the transverse engines and the 2.72 m (107.3”) wheelbase. There were more trim levels and a big options list. For the 2018 model, GM offered a standard 7” infotainment display on top of the center stack. The gear-stick was removed and a rotary-knob selector was chosen.

For the engine compartment, the Terrain was offered exclusively with turbocharged 4-cylinder units. The smallest one was 1.5-liter gasoline. There was an option for a more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged unit with the same fuel. The most important addition was the 1.6-liter turbodiesel unit, which offered good power and a lot of torque.
