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 litre inline-four Hyundai J engine, or a 3.5 litre V6 Hyundai Sigma engine.
