The all-new 2025 GMC Terrain is coming later this year, and GMC gave us a small taste of the upcoming compact SUV. Though GMC didn’t share much information, we can make some educated guesses about what the Terrain will offer consumers to compete with the likes of the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.

For 2025, the Terrain is likely getting boxier styling to mimic the redesigned Acadia and refreshed Yukon — and the all-new 2025 Chevrolet Equinox, with which it will likely continue to share a platform. The teaser shows off an AT4 trim, which isn’t new to the Terrain but does demonstrate GMC’s continued emphasis on off-road — or in this case possibly more off-road-adjacent — trims. The new 2025 Terrain AT4 will likely be similar to the new 2025 Chevrolet Equinox Activ, which means features such as all-terrain tires and some rugged looks, but not a lot of hardcore off-roading gear. Given that GMC usually improves upon the similar Chevrolet model, the Terrain AT4 might have more equipment than the Equinox Activ.

Similarly, the Terrain is likely to have a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine under its hood (just like the Equinox), but its power figures might be higher than the Chevy’s 175 horsepower and 184 pounds-feet of torque with front-wheel drive and 203 pounds-feet with all-wheel drive. We’ll have to wait and see.

We also expect upgraded standard tech in the new Terrain that should mimic or exceed the new Equinox’s standard 11-inch digital gauge cluster and 11.3-inch touchscreen display, along with similarly upgraded safety technologies.

We should learn more later this year when the 2025 GMC Terrain makes its full debut, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
