General Motors probably senses that Toyota is breathing down its neck after its sales record for the first three months of the year – 594,233 versus 565,098 units barely allowed the largest of the Detroit Three to stay ahead of the Japanese automaker.

GM fell 1.5%, largely due to disastrous performance in its commercial division, while the Asian automaker was encouragingly up more than 20%. Things are expected to get even hotter in the remaining three quarters as Toyota launches the Lexus GX, Tacoma i-Force Max Hybrid, 2024 Land Cruiser and the upcoming 2025 4Runner.

Meanwhile, GM is enlisting GMC to fly the banner after Chevrolet pretty much wraps up the list of introductions with the refreshed 2025 Tahoe and Suburban, as well as the all-new 2025 Equinox. Yes, the Silverado EV RST is finally coming, but the First Edition and the GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 certainly won't make volumes.

Instead, GMC is more confident about increasing deliveries with traditional nameplates – and is therefore actively promoting two of its flagship SUVs. First we saw the first teaser for the updated full-size 2025 Yukon with body and frame SUV, and the rumor mill had already revealed it during testing. Certainly it will follow the recipe of the 2025 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, with the 2025 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL receiving a number of subtle design changes, more features and technology, as well as a major interior overhaul and a 10% increase in power diesel mill.

Secondly, GMC also launched the teasing campaign for the all-new Terrain, its third generation compact crossover SUV, a platform cousin of the all-new 2025 Chevrolet Equinox. Most likely, the all-new 2025 Terrain and the 2025 Yukon will share some design features, as shown in the Announced in teasers that only show parts of the front fascia design. As for the interior, there's a strong chance it will follow in the footsteps of the all-new 2024 Acadia, with digital instrument clusters and large, portrait-oriented central screens for the infotainment systems.

Of course, with the Acadia hitting dealerships nationwide this spring and the 2025 Yukon plus 2025 Terrain hot on its heels due to the teaser campaign, it's no wonder that all eyes are on GMC right now – even in the fantasy realm the digital car content creator. For example the Hello oto The YouTube channel provides up-to-date automotive information backed by their virtual designs. Now there are new CGI ideas for the announced 2025 terrain, after previously working quite intensively on the 2025 Yukon in Denali and AT4 form.

There's not much CGI to discuss at the moment – the channel's resident pixel master refrained from showing any POV other than the simplest, the direct view of the front fascia, as hinted at in the teaser. But no worry; More angles will be coming soon, that's for sure.
