For 2022, the only change to the Ascent lineup is the new Onyx Edition. An appearance package based on the seven-seat Premium model, it includes unique black-out exterior elements and 20-inch rims. It also comes standard with a hands-free power liftgate, a heated steering wheel, passive entry with push-button start, and rear automated emergency braking. The lone option package for the Onyx Edition adds onboard navigation, a panoramic sunroof, and a retractable cargo cover.

Pros
Multi-configurable second-row captain's chairs,
standard all-wheel drive and lots of safety tech,

Highway passes require patience,
engine noise isn't well masked,
third row not fit for adults on long trips.
