The 2017 GMC Terrain will come completely redesigned. This is the latest information that we have about this model. This crossover is introduced by General Motors about six years ago, as replacement for Pontiac Torrent, because Pontiac brand doesn’t exist anymore. Just like most of GMC crossovers, this one also has its mechanical twin from Chevrolet. In this occasion, it is a model called Equinox. In mechanical aspect, these two models are almost identical, which visually each model comes with its own appearance. This trend will continue, and both of these models will come completely redesigned.

While original model was positioned somewhere between mid-size and compact crossover, new one will strictly go into a segment of compact crossovers, which basically means that we are going to see some smaller dimensions.
