An Overview

Consumers looking to buy their next compact SUV should turn their attention to the new 2022 GMC Terrain. The new Terrain offers simplicity and all the essentials in a family-friendly SUV platform that is practical for daily driving. Its 1.5 L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine provides good fuel economy numbers, and there is plenty of cargo space for carrying supplies and equipment for recreational activities. As the GMC Yukon’s little brother, the GMC Terrain has nimble handling and offers a comfortable ride quality. GMC recently announced that it would be adding some infotainment features as standard at no extra cost.   

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Will Be Standard

GMC decided to include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard equipment on all 2022 GMC Terrain trims such as the SLE, SLT, AT4, and Denali. This is a move in the right direction for GMC as the expansion of wireless phone connectivity in vehicles will be essential and will increase in demand. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are categorized as “in-car assistant systems” that give drivers access to certain features on their phones through the vehicle’s infotainment system or phone interface.        

Both systems can accomplish various tasks like display navigation, play music, and check text messages using voice commands. These systems offer drivers convenience and safety features like fewer distractions and temptations to glance over at the phone while driving. Drivers can have access to some of their favorite apps from their phones, access to their music playlists, and including the ability to make hands-free calls.

Ease of Connectivity

Buyers of the 2022 GMC Terrain will find it easy to operate the Terrain’s infotainment system. An in-dash navigation system, as well as a heads-up display, will come as standard on the Denali trim, but they will be optional on the SLT and AT4 trims.

The 2022 GMC Terrain

The new Terrain receives an admirable refreshed look for the 2022 model year with a revised front grille and front bumper, new LED headlights, and taillights. Buyers will have the option to choose from 18 and 19-inch wheel designs and updated upholstery. Drivers that wish to have more off-road capability can opt for the AT4 trim as it replaces the SL trim. The 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine will be discontinued in favor of the more efficient turbocharged 1.5 L, and it will be the only engine choice. The redesigned 2022 GMC Terrain SLE, SLT, and AT4 trims will be available in summer 2021, and the Denali trim will be available in fall 2021. For more information on how you can get your hands on a 2022 GMC Terrain, you can visit us at Southern Buick GMC Lynnhaven.
