Acadia’s Tech Upgrade: 2025 GMC Terrain to Feature Supersized Touchscreen

  • New spy photographs show us what the 2025 GMC Terrain’s revised exterior and interior will look like. The vehicle is undergoing a major overhaul.
  • The 2024 GMC Acadia debuted a digital gauge cluster, a huge vertical touchscreen, and a boxier design that are features of the third-generation Terrain.
  • Given that the Terrain and the new 2025 Chevy Equinox share a base, we anticipate they will have the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 175 horsepower.

In addition to revealing the revamped 2025 Equinox earlier this year, Chevy also hinted that a new 2025 GMC Terrain was also in the works. After all, since the 2010 Pontiac Torrent was replaced by the Terrain, GM’s two small SUVs have been built on the same platform. Although it hasn’t been made public yet, our spy photographer managed to get some pictures that give us a first look at the outside and inside of the 2025 GMC Terrain.

Bigger Screen

The third-generation Terrain will feature a massive touchscreen that is angled vertically, as seen in the image after this post. It resembles the configuration that made its debut on the 2024 GMC Acadia exactly. This implies that the center screen of the Terrain, containing the row of toggle switches and static HVAC controls, will be 15.0 inches in diameter. The same Google-based operating system, complete with customizable settings and downloadable apps, will also be included. A digital gauge cluster, the same 11.0-inch model as the Acadia, will also be included on the new Terrain.

A thick-rimmed, leather-wrapped steering wheel with stalks on either side of the column is also shown in our Terrain spy photographs (the right side should serve as the gear changer). The disguised model’s exact trim level is unknown, but if it’s the top-of-the-line Denali, it’s noteworthy to observe that the top of the tiller lacks the light strip that indicates GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving system.

Boxier Body

There is much less to learn about the 2025 GMC Terrain’s appearance from our spy photos. But even the intentionally confusing body wrap can’t deny that the new model seems to be taller and more angular than the previous generation. Given that GMC used the same strategy with the new Acadia, that seems reasonable. Indeed, we anticipate their front-end designs will be strikingly similar, with the Terrain probably copying the more recent C-shaped lighting features. A sizable grille with horizontal slats and what appear to be lower air intakes is also visible in the spy photographs.

We’ll learn a great deal more about the 2025 GMC Terrain’s trim levels, available amenities, and powertrains when GMC makes the vehicle public later this year. It will most likely be driven by the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower and comes standard with the ’25 Chevy Equinox. Additionally, that engine can be matched with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic gearbox (CVT). The 2017 Terrain’s starting price in the $31K–$32K range and its price increase to over $40,000 in Denali trim wouldn’t surprise us, but we won’t know for sure until pricing is announced.
