The 2025 GMC Terrain is said to come with all the new bells and whistles. But that’s not only the best thing to expect from the SUV because it is claimed to have improved offroad performance too. If you are one of those offroad enthusiasts who want to enjoy comfy and exciting offroad exploration, the new Terrain is promised to deliver the best outcome. The details are still unclear for now, but from the spied photos now available on the net, the vehicle does have something interesting to offer – and be proud about!
About GMC Terrain
The Terrain was first launched in 2010, designed as a compact SUV crossover. The vehicle came as a body and bold model with distinctive and unique styling elements. Then, GM launched the second gen in 2018 with a slightly different design. It underwent a rather significant refreshment with the sleek and modern exterior look. This second gen had got a redesigned work back then in 2022. And now, the 2025 GMC Terrain has been dubbed as the third gen model – unsure whether it would be a redesigned model or touch-up style.
What makes the Terrain different from other crossover SUV is the offroad ability. If you are a hardcore offroad enthusiast, you should go with AT4 trim level, which will offer better and much improved offroad abilities. Not only the offroad performance will increase, but you can also expect a more solid and rugged appearance. Rumor has it that this trim level would get AT General Grabber tires, which may also be added to the Elevation trim level. But then again, we can’t really know for sure until we get real confirmation from the company.
The Exterior Design
The exterior area, no doubt, would get the biggest focus and updates. With the Terrain spotted underwent its testing stage, it’s obvious that GM wants to change the exterior elements of the vehicle.
The new Terrain, obviously, was heavily covered but there are some interesting cue elements on the vehicle, making auto enthusiasts guess and predict. The front end somewhat shows a new look for the front fascia having new lighting design. It seems that the new Terrain would be coming with the new version of C-shaped headlamps and also its (singular) lighting cluster on the upper corner area of the fascia.
You can also expect updated grille with rectangular section (on the upper side) that may be available for the GMC badge. On the side, the language design may be similar to the upcoming Chevy Equinox, which is dubbed as the next generation model. It displays flat roofline and tall utility design.
Although the rear area is covered with camo, it seems that the C-pillar comes with flying buttress design with thin spoked wheels on the corners. Revamped and refreshed design of taillight clusters should be expected as there is a placeholder units shape as the hints. As it was mentioned before, it seems that the taillights would be coming with C-shaped housing and headlights bookend, along with the extra lights for the tailgate. If you take a closer look, you will see twin exhaust outlets right under the rear bumper.
Powertrain and Performance
Some sources have stated that this third gen Terrain would get a new turbocharged unit, which would be a compact type. It should be coming with auto 9 speed transmission and also front wheel driving system (all wheel is also available). But further details of 2025 GMC Terrain haven’t been available for now.
Release Date and Price
It’s possible that the new Terrain would be made at San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico, starting in 2014’s mid calendar year. If everything goes as planned, the new 2025 GMC Terrain should be ready by the end of 2024 or within the very early of 2025 as the latest, with a price tag of $31,000.
