2022 GMC Terrain Gets Big Upgrades
2022 GMC Terrain AT4

The 2022 GMC Terrain, along with its cousin the Chevy Equinox, is getting upgraded for the new model year. We take a look at what GMC has in store for the popular crossover.

The refreshed 2022 GMC Terrain was supposed to originally be released as a 2021 model. However, the pandemic put a stop to that. Now that GMC has regrouped, the Terrain has some big changes headed its way for 2022.

While GMC changes features, options, and colors every model year, 2022 brings a larger than average update to the GMC Terrain. Among the changes include a new AT4 trim level, refreshed front and rear fascia, and a heads-up display.

The new AT4 trim level will feature an exclusive front skid plate for off-road protection, while the Denali trim level will continue to be the top-level, fully equipped, option.

We’ll break up this new 2022 model preview into three parts:

  • Features and options that are no longer being offered
  • Features and options that are totally new for 2022
  • Features and options that are being changed for the new model year
