For those looking for something more than the ordinary SUVs, check out the upcoming 2023 GMC Terrain with a truck-ish appearance. The new variant is refreshed, and it looks more eye-catching than before.
Unlike the brand’s Yukon SUV, the forthcoming Terrain will be more off-road capable, featuring many upgrades. It will also offer a very modern and spacious cabin that can fit all the passengers comfortably. A host of driver-assistance features is standard, and you can add even more as options. However, if you’re looking for more attractiveness, GMC also offers a chrome-laden Denali model which sets this SUV apart from competitors such as the Honda CR-V, the Mazda CX-5, or the Volkswagen Tiguan.
2023 GMC Terrain Exterior Changes
The 2023 GMC Terrain has unique exterior styling, which is definitively one of the highlights of this model. Unlike its siblings, the Terrain comes with a more bold and premium appearance. It’s mechanically similar to the Chevy Equinox, but it looks more attractive. Moreover, depending on the trim level, the design of this SUV will change quite a bit.
For example, if you go for the Terrain AT4 and Terrain Denali, you will get quite different personalities aesthetically. The manufacturer also offers the Elevation Edition that is available on trims SLE and SLT. This model adds many black exterior accents and special wheels.
The interior of the 2023 GMC Terrain offers truck-like simplicity and a modern appearance. This SUV is obviously inspired by its bigger stablemates, the GMC Sierra and Yukon models. The cabin of the Terrain is a pleasant place to be, and there is enough room to fit five passengers comfortably. In general, interior space is good for both rows. Standard equipment is quite generous, and the GMC Terrain’s lower trims are a good value.
As standard, it includes a premium cloth interior, a Traction Select System, wireless Android Auto/ Apple CarPlay, and fold-flat rear seats. The GMC Pro Safety suite is also part of this package, and it offers automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and more.
2023 GMC Terrain Powertrain Specs
Beneath the hood, the 2023 GMC Terrain host a standard turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a nine-speed automatic, producing 170 horsepower. This model is also available with either front or all-wheel drive. If fuel economy figures are more important to you than performance, then you’ll have no complaints about this powertrain at all.
However, as always, AWD models come with a slight fuel economy penalty. The current model offers EPA city/highway fuel economy of 25/30 mpg (FWD), and 25/28 mpg (AWD).
Release Date, Price
The 2023 GMC Terrain will be refreshed for the following year, and it will definitively stand out in its crowded segment. According to the latest news, the forthcoming model will go on sale in the fall of 2022. This SUV starts at $27,900 for the base SLE FWD model, while the mid-range SLT FWD is around $31,900.
If you add AWD to SLE or SLT, it will cost you an extra $1,600. On the other hand, you can also get an AWD as standard on the top two trims, the rugged AT4 or luxurious Denali that cost $36,600.
