AT4 adds touch of terrain capability to Terrain
Wireless phone connectivity added standard
A refreshed GMC Terrain was expected to arrive an entire year ago, bringing new tech, a new AT4 trim, and some goodies to make the Denali model a little bit more posh. But as with so many other things, COVID-19 pushed the changes back and now GMC is ready to reveal them on the 2022 Terrain model.
AT4 is GMC for a bit more luxury and a bit more off-road capability, at least on the rest of its models. Here, the only detail mentioned is a new steel front skid plate, though there appear to be some more off-road-oriented tires along with some slight cosmetic tweaks.
All of the 2022 Terrains get some of those cosmetic changes including slightly reshaped headlights, new wheel designs, a new front fascia, and updated taillights that they didn’t display in any of the photos.
The interior adds both wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard, along with changes to fabrics and trim, with Amazon Alexa capability and a new Tech package that will be available on SLT and AT4 trims. Denali gains a new standard head-up display that will be an option on AT4.
The 2.0L turbo-four option is gone from 2022 Terrain, with the only engine a 1.5L turbo-four making 170 hp and 203 lb-ft paired with a nine-speed auto. The 2.0 was one of the more powerful engines in the segment, so it will be missed by enthusiasts, but GM has said previously it was not a big seller.
2022 GMC Terrain SLE, SLT, and AT4 will be available this summer, with Denali not arriving until the fall, with pricing for all to follow.
