2022 GMC Terrain for Sale in Johnston, RI
For the 2022 model year, GMC has refreshed its popular Terrain compact crossover with inspiration from its larger sibling, the Yukon. From the C-shaped exterior lighting to the redesigned grille, it’s easy to see the resemblance. In addition to the restyled bodywork, the biggest changes for the 2022 GMC Terrain are the introduction of the trail-slanted AT4 trim and the Elevation Edition appearance package.
Of course, the Terrain continues its heritage of blending premium equipment with the practicality of a crossover. Its most useful qualities include a comfortable cabin, generous cargo space, and a towing capacity of up to 1,500 pounds.
Trims and Powertrains
The five-passenger 2022 Terrain is sold in four trims (two with later availability): the SLE and SLT are in the showroom now, with the AT4 and Denali coming available in Fall 2021. Every Terrain is powered by a turbocharged 170-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine working with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on the two lower trims, with all-wheel-drive (AWD) available, but the AT4 and Denali are AWD only. The EPA has estimated fuel economy at 25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway for front-wheel-drive Terrains and 25 city/28 highway for those with AWD.
The ’22 Acadia SLE is well-stocked for a base trim. Some of its highlight exterior features are automatic on/off LED headlights, signature LED taillights, deeply tinted rear glass, heated side mirrors, and keyless entry. Inside, the SLE houses two 12-volt power outlets, two charging-only USB ports and two USB data ports (a USB-A and a USB-C), an auxiliary input jack, front bucket seats with a flat-folding passenger seatback, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an overhead console sunglasses holder, automatic climate control, and a fold-flat rear seat with a 60/40 split. The SLE is also compatible with GMC Connected Access and OnStar Connected Services.
The SLE’s infotainment system can be controlled using voice recognition or its 7-inch touchscreen. Among its features are wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system. This trim also gets a generous suite of advanced safety features courtesy of the GMC Pro Safety suite, which includes forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and front pedestrian braking, a following distance indicator, hill descent control, automatic high beams, and lane keep assist with lane departure warning. GM’s unique Teen Driver system, which lets you track a young driver’s performance behind the wheel, is standard as well.
SLT and AT4
The SLT adds some posh upgrades, such as remote start, a hands-free liftgate, perforated leather seats (power-adjustable and heated in the front row), driver’s seat memory, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient interior lighting, and dual-zone automatic climate control. It adds other features for usefulness and added safety: fog lights, side mirrors enhanced with position memory and turn-signal indicators, roof rails, a 110-volt power outlet, an SD card reader, and a universal garage door opener. It also swaps a USB-C port for another USB-A port and replaces the 7-inch infotainment touchscreen with an 8-incher. While the late-availability AT4 is similar in many ways to the SLT, it’s differentiated by standard AWD, Goodyear Sport Terrain tires, an underbody skid plate, front door sill plates, and AT4-embossed seats.
The decked-out Denali comes with a head-up display, a safety alert seat (which vibrates in the direction of a potential on-road hazard), trim-specific seats, and a wireless phone charger. Its 8-inch infotainment system adds navigation and a rich seven-speaker Bose audio system, while its supply of driver-assist aids is topped off with front and rear parking sensors, lane change alert with size blind-zone alert, and rear cross-traffic alert.
Some of the more luxurious features in the higher-level trims are optional for the lower grades through packages. One of these is the Driver Convenience Package for the SLE. It includes remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, and roof rails. The Pro Safety Plus is offered for the SLE, SLT, and AT4, bundling lane change alert with side blind-zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and the safety alert seat.
The Infotainment I Package for the SLE will add an 8-inch touchscreen, two USB-A data ports, a 4.2-inch display (with audio, phone, and navigation capability), an SD card reader, and a 110-volt power outlet. The Infotainment II Package for the SLT and AT4 delivers navigation and an upmarket seven-speaker Bose sound system. The SLT, AT4, and Denali each qualify for a version of the Tech Package, but aside from a surround-view camera system that’s included across the board, its content varies depending on the trim. In the SLT and AT4, the Tech Package provides a head-up display and front and rear parking sensors (which are already standard in the Denali), but with the Denali, it has automatic parking assist and adaptive cruise control. The Denali Premium Package will issue the surround-view camera, automatic parking assist, and adaptive cruise control, along with heated rear outboard seats.
Standard and Optional Features
The base SLE comes with LED exterior lighting, heated power side mirrors, automatic on/off headlights, a proximity key with push-button start, automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a fold-flat rear seat with 60/40 split, 17-inch painted aluminum wheels, a 4.2-inch driver information display, and a well-equipped infotainment system. A suite of advanced driver aids is also on the standard equipment list; see the next section for details. Buyers who want even more can opt to add the Driver Convenience Package to get remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, an 8-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar control, and rooftop side rails.
The SLT gets the contents of the Driver Convenience Package as standard along with some other excellent features: a power hands-free liftgate, leather seating, a heated leather steering wheel, a 6-way power front passenger seat, a 110-volt outlet, a universal garage door opener, and a high-definition rearview camera. The optional Tech Package will furnish a surround-view monitor, a head-up display, and front and rear park assist. Both the SLE and SLT can be ordered as an Elevation Edition (late availability) to upgrade to 19-inch gloss-black aluminum wheels and black exterior trim. A power sunroof is also optional on the SLE and SLT.
The off-pavement-friendly AT4 (autumn 2021 availability) gets the same equipment as the SLT but switches to off-road tires and adds a front skid plate, a traction select system with off-road mode, black chrome exterior accents, and a grille and leather interior that are unique to the trim. The Denali (also available starting in the fall of 2021) also has the same standard features as the SLT but gets its own style of 19-inch wheels and a unique grille, plus a premium suspension with enhanced shock control, an upgraded audio system and driver information display, premium cabin materials, and navigation.
Safety and Technology Features
All 2022 GMC Terrains are set up with the GMC Pro Safety suite of advanced driver aids, which includes forward collision alert, automatic emergency and front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and following distance indicator. GMC Pro Safety Plus – which is available on the SLE/SLT and standard on the AT4/Denali – adds a bunch more technologies: lane change alert, blind-spot alert, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, adaptive cruise control, and Safety Alert Seat.
The infotainment system on the SLE includes a 7-inch touchscreen, AM/FM radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, USB data ports with auxiliary input jack, and access to OnStar/GMC Connected Services telematics for emergency help and vehicle diagnostics. The optional Infotainment Package I upgrades the standard setup to an 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen with navigation, an enhanced 4.2-inch driver information display, a high-resolution rearview camera, and additional USB ports; it also adds a 110-volt outlet. The SLT and higher get the 8-inch touchscreen as standard. The Infotainment Package II (navigation and Bose audio system) is available on the SLT and AT4 and standard on the Denali. Amazon Alexa compatibility is standard on the AT4 and Denali.
