General Motors is cooking up a brand-new fourth generation for the Chevy Equinox, set to drop in for the 2025 model year. We’ve already seen the 2025 Chevy Equinox testing as a camouflage prototype in the past, but now, we’re getting an even clearer look at the crossover’s new styling. Not only that, but this particular prototype also seems to be making its best “Back to the Future” impression.
Compared to 2025 Chevy Equinox prototypes seen previously, this particular example is outfitted with a number of wires, sensors, and various other bits of equipment spread out across the body. The gear includes chassis data collection tools mounted at each wheel. More importantly, however, this prototype gives us a much clearer idea of what the redesigned front fascia will look like.
Once again falling in line with the latest Chevy design language, this 2025 Chevy Equinox presents thin upper lighting signatures (non-production) mounted high in the fascia, which are connected by a prominent styling line found just underneath the hood. The round lights mounted lower in the fascia provide the primary forward lighting, thus creating Chevy’s latest two-tiered lighting setup. The grille stretches across the nose in a thinner, wider shape, while a silver lip is seen peeking out from just underneath the camo.
This particular 2025 Chevy Equinox prototype appears to be a more rugged version of the crossover. As such, this could be either a new Activ trim level or even a new Z71 trim. As GM Authority exclusively covered before, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will introduce a more-capable Z71 variant in conjunction with an all-new third generation, and it’s certainly not out of the question to posit that the all-new 2025 Chevy Equinox will do the same.
