2025 GMC Terrain Teases Assertive New Front EndGMC
  • GMC has teased the next-generation Terrain, set to arrive for the 2025 model year.

  • The teaser image shows the AT4 model's new front end with boxy headlights and a black grille.

  • The 2025 GMC Terrain will be revealed at some point later this year.

GMC is in the process of overhauling its SUV lineup. First came the 2024 Acadia, which arrives this year with fresh styling and exclusively powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder. GMC has also teased a refreshed Yukon, showing off the full-size SUV's squared-off new headlight. Now the American brand is teasing the final piece of the puzzle, the next-generation Terrain compact crossover, which will be revealed later this year.

The image is similar to the of the Yukon, revealing the headlight and a portion of the grille. As with the Yukon, GMC is also teasing the off-road-oriented AT4 model. The Terrain AT4 looks to adopt a similarly butch design as its fellow GMCs, replacing the current Terrain's softer styling with a boxier appearance that reminds us of the pre-refresh Yukon. The new grille is surrounded by glossy black trim that links to both the headlights and a smaller trapezoidal trim piece in the bumper.

GMC didn't provide any other details about the third-generation Terrain, nor did the company specify when exactly to expect the new crossover. The current Terrain is a close cousin to the Chevrolet Equinox, and we expect that relationship to continue. A new iteration of the Equinox debuted for 2025, using a 175-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder, connected to a continuously variable transmission on front-wheel-drive models and an eight-speed automatic on all-wheel-drive examples.


This engine's output is unchanged from its role in the outgoing Equinox and Terrain, but the 2024 Terrain currently hooks up to a nine-speed automatic. We expect it to follow the Equinox's gearbox switch when it arrives later this year. Spy shots also show that the Terrain is set to gain a massive vertical touchscreen, in a similar vein to the 2024 Acadia's 15.0-inch center display. It will also be paired with a digital dashboard, likely the same 11.0-inch unit from the Acadia.
