There have been some approaches that GMC takes when they make plans to redesign the 2024 GMC Terrain. Some changes are expected, including stopping the production of the base SL trim but including the all-new AT4 trim, designed for offroad performance. The Terrain should get new rear and front fascia as the changes happen. There would also be new colors for the exterior, new trims and fabrics for the cabin, and also wheels of 18 and 19 inches.
The Redesigned Plan
Aside from the changes on the outside, you can also expect changes happening on the inside. More techs and features should be expected. There would likely be a new display (head-up) screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto abilities. It’s even said that GMC would be thinking about developing the Denali along with the Tech Package.
Design and Layout
The Terrain is designed as a crossover with a 1.5-liter unit, so it’s quite understandable if it has a chunky front end with a truck-like design, coming with a long overhang, which is somewhat bothering the offroad departure angle. The exterior improvement would cover new LED tail lamps and headlamps, a new fascia design, and a new grille. For the colors, three different colors are added, including Red Cayenne Metallic, Marine Metallic, and Desert Sand Metallic. The latter is only available for the AT4 trim only.
Other than those changes, the others would remain the same. Expect to find fog halogen lamps, heated mirrors with adjustable power features, and black (lower) body trim. The exterior options may include side steps, SkyScape (power) sunroof, roof racks, and accessories.
The Interior Cabin
The Terrain has a superior cabin with spacious dimensions. Unfortunately, the build quality and not-so-good materials reduce the overall quality of the (supposedly) exclusive ride. The push-button ergonomically challenged shifter somewhat compromises the interior design. The buttons can confuse the center console and aren’t so intuitive. These issues hopefully could be improved in the new Terrain.
2024 GMC Terrain Denali
Being the highest trim in the lineups, the Denali would have an in-dash nav system and the (head up) display screen. Those would be the standard for the Denali while being optional for the AT4 and SLT. However, unlike other vehicles from GM projecting the feature on their windshield, the Terrain would include a popup panel on the dashboard’s top side.
2024 GMC Terrain EV
There is only one engine option for the Terrain, which is the inline-four turbocharged unit with a 1.5-liter capacity, generating 170 hp and 203 Nm of torque. The company has discontinued the 2.0-liter powertrain. The upcoming team would come together with an auto 9-speed transmission and a front-wheel driving system. There would be an optional all-wheel driving system as the alternative pick.
The 2024 GMC Terrain would compete against other brands with their abilities and power. For instance, the RAV4 (Toyota) can generate 203 hp and 184 Nm of torque, while the CX-5 (Mazda) would yield 187 hp. And then there is the CR-V (Honda) that churns 190 hp. Compared to those rivals, the Terrain is somewhat the slowest and has the least power.
Price and Release Date
The base trim is predicted to come with $28,000 for the tag price. This is a higher tag, above the standard average. The higher SLT trim would be sold at around $32,000, while the new AT4 trim would be about $34,000. The highest decoration, the Denali, would likely be sold at approximately $37,000. The release date of the 2024 GMC Terrain is still unknown, so we should wait for further info.
