  • Part of the second Terrain generation introduced for 2018
What is the Terrain?

The GMC Terrain is the brand's entry-level small crossover SUV. It's related to the Chevrolet Equinox and shares technology features and powertrains. The second-generation Terrain debuted just a few years ago, but some drawbacks, including a weak base engine and bouncy ride, keep it from taking on Edmunds' top-ranked Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 and Nissan Rogue.

GMC is going to make some changes for 2022. Expect the Terrain to sport updated styling and some new technology features. While we don't expect passenger or cargo space to improve with the refresh — that's one of the vehicle's minuses — the updated Terrain should build on the current model's strong points of comfort and ease of use.

EdmundsEdmunds says

The GMC Terrain is a solid but unexceptional crossover in a crowded field of small SUVs. Updates for 2022 should help it better compete against class leaders.

Should I lease or buy a 2022 GMC Terrain?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
