The Hyundai Terracan is a mid-size SUV produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai Motor Company from 2001 to 2007. It was based on the Hyundai Highland concept and featured a chassis derived from the second generation Mitsubishi Pajero. It was powered by one of two engines: a 2.9 liter inline-four Hyundai J engine, or a 3.5 liter V6 Hyundai Sigma engine. The car's name derives from Tarascan, a Mesoamerican empire state was located in west central Mexico. The Terracan was replaced by the Hyundai Veracruz.
Australian specification Terracans were available in two trim levels - base and Highlander. Highlander models came standard with leather seats, climate control airconditioning and an automatic 4wd differential that engaged 4wd on the fly. All models came with low range gearing and a separate ladder frame chassis.
The Terracan has also been built and sold in China from 2004 to 2011 under the Hawtai brand in a joint venture with Hyundai that lasted up to 2010. The facelifted version was only available and came with the 2.4 liter 4G64, a 2.5 liter diesel, 2.9 liter J-Series diesel and the 3.5 liter Sigma V6 as standard. Transmission choices were a 5 speed manual or 4 speed automatic.
