Spy Shots: 2018 Chevrolet Equinox And 2017 GMC Acadia Shed Some Camouflage1
Update: an earlier version of this story named the second vehicle as the 2017 GMC Terrain. We have since learned the vehicle in question is the 2017 GMC Acadia. See more spy shots of it here.
Update 2: we incorrectly pegged the Equinox as a 2017 model year vehicle, when in fact it will be a 2018. See more info on the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.
This isn’t the first time we’ve caught a peak at the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, but it is the first we’ve seen of a new 2017 GMC Terrain. Here we have two sets of spy shots from our very own, Anthony Herta. The photos show a few various angles, showing off the GMC more so than the Chevrolet.
We can certainly see the 2017 Terrain taking on a more premium appearance from the rear, apparent in those squared-off LED taillamps.
The 2017 Equinox, which looks as if it takes on a more rugged look compared to the curvy, crossover lines we’re currently graced with, is a little more difficult to make out at each angle. But, there’s no denying the vehicle has definitely shrunk a tad.
And that’s the plan for both the 2017 Equinox and 2017 Terrain, as they will both ride on General Motors’ D2XX platform, allowing for a new midsize CUV to bridge the gap between them, and the Traverse/Acadia duo.
Both of these vehicles were spied out on the M14 in Michigan near the General Motors Proving Grounds where they did their best to act natural, but could not escape quickly enough after a few photos.
Chevrolet and GMC just revealed the lightly refreshed Equinox and Terrain less than a year ago, so expect both brands to milk the hot crossover sales while these two all-new CUVs bake a little while longer.

I saw this same vehicle as well as others about a week ago on Hwy 11 driving south of Gravenhurst, Ontario. Perhaps coming down from their cold weather facility in Kapuskasing, ON.
