GMC

GMC has done wonders with its new models. The time has come where it finally frees itself from the clutches of the Fords, and the Rams, and the Chevys, and creates its own identity. Sounds too dramatic, right? Well, that's because GMC is finally all set to claim its space. A truck company that played second fiddle to the Chevy Silverado has finally managed to put itself shoulder-to-shoulder with the competitors, and there seems to be no stopping. After the revamped and the reloaded models, GMC even went up a notch to introduce models like a Sierra 1500 CarbonPro Edition. To put this into perspective, carbon fiber is something that supercars and hypercars dress in. This is just one instance, but the company is looking the best it has until date and its future looks quite promising.

2020 GMC Sierra Denali Goliath 700 by Hennessey

2020 GMC Sierra Denali Goliath 700 by Hennessey

Yet another monster from the House of Hennessey

When you hear the name “Hennessey” suffixed to any vehicle, you know it’s going to be a monster in all senses. The company has been transforming SUVs, sedans, and pickup trucks from nimble creatures into absolute beasts since the early ‘90s. Let’s say Hennessey drops massive amounts of gamma radiations into every vehicle to create Hulk versions of them.

The company already deals with the Raptor, Mustang, F-150, and GT, and will soon be adding the 2020 Bronco as well to its portfolio. The company even laid its hands on the Jeep Gladiator and plonked in a Hellcat engine to create a “Maximus” version that makes 1,000 horses. This time around, Hennessey has gotten hold of the GMC Sierra Denali.The power bumps are significant and it looks mighty big with the new raised stance. The company has moniker’d it the Goliath 700. It makes sense, doesn’t it?

This New 2021 GMC Hummer EV Rendering Looks Just About Right

This New 2021 GMC Hummer EV Rendering Looks Just About Right

Those suicide doors look neat, but it’s unlikely that GM will go for those

The Hummer’s transition from extinct gas-guzzler to reborn electric vehicle, albeit in pickup truck shape, has taken the car world by storm. And that’s an understatement. GMC cleverly released the right amount of specs to keep people on their toes and stir the online medium, yet nobody knows what the GMC Hummer EV will look like.

GMC’s cryptic picture of the truck’s front end doesn’t reveal much but it was all some needed to create a digital interpretation of what the Hummer EV might be.

The GMC Hummer EV Will Be Offered With Three All-Electric Powertrain Choices

The GMC Hummer EV Will Be Offered With Three All-Electric Powertrain Choices

The company will cover a larger customer base with three motor options on offer

The GMC Hummer EV was announced last week and it has pretty much been in the news ever since. The company has been tight-lipped about it and hasn’t released much information on it yet. So far, all we’ve learned are horsepower, torque, and 0-60 mph figures.

Now, however, some more information about the powertrain options has come to light. The GMC Hummer will be offered with three powertrain options. This is good news because this way, GMC will most likely cover a broader spectrum instead of solely catering to high-power enthusiasts.

GMC Hummer EV: What We Know So Far

GMC Hummer EV: What We Know So Far

Here’s the essential info with some speculation on the side

The new Hummer EV got all the buzz since the day GMC announced it will be teasing the new “truck” in a Super Bowl commercial. There were a lot of rumors regarding the Hummer’s revival, but none of them provided enough information and details about this revival.

In fact, even GMC has revealed only three details about the Hummer so far – the horsepower, torque, and 0-60 mph figure. Was it enough to create an itch in our brains? Of course! GMC has been tight-lipped about pretty much everything, but we should be able to get some more information about the Hummer EV until it debuts on May 20, 2020. Here’s what we know so far.

Watch GMC Put The Sierra's CarbonPro Bed Through Hell in a New Test Video

Watch GMC Put The Sierra’s CarbonPro Bed Through Hell in a New Test Video

Perhaps, the hurricane test can be the latest trend to hit the truck market after the tugs-of-war

GMC has constantly been in news over the last couple of weeks and we are loving it. First came the Canyon AT4’s debut, then the 2021 Yukon’s reveal, and now this test video to show the might of the Sierra truck bed.

GMC launched the Sierra with the CarbonPro bed in early 2019. Although it tried to sell it with a series of tests to prove that it can withstand anything thrown at it, it didn’t instill a ‘wow’ image in everyone’s mind.. This test, however, will change that perception.

GMC took the CarbonPro bed to a wind-testing facility where it was put through a simulated hurricane situation. To say the least, the bed passed with flying colors. In conclusion, the hurricane may swoop away your truck, but the bed will remain unbreakable. Don’t we all need that?

What do we have here? Fresh off the debut of the all-new Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, GMC has launched the more upscale Yukon and Yukon XL.

GMC Ups The Ante By Introducing The Off-Road AT4 Trim for The 2020 Canyon

GMC Ups The Ante By Introducing The Off-Road AT4 Trim for The 2020 Canyon

It replaces the dud All Terrain trim in the lineup for good measure

It looks like General Motors has decided to stop letting GMC play the second fiddle to Chevrolet’s offerings. The company has finally decided to let Robin get his own batmobile (Robmobile?!). GMC’s mid-size pickup truck, the Canyon, will be receiving an AT4 trim. The AT4 will be replacing the All Terrain trim in the Canyon’s portfolio, thus refreshing and hopefully boosting the sales of the pickup truck’s off-road version. As a bonus, the Denali trim also receives some new additions. It looks like a positive start of the year for GMC.

The 2020 Sierra AT4 Comes With Stronger Off-Road Specs, But Can It Beat The Ram Power Wagon In Its Own Yard?

Ram Power Wagon has a worthy competitor in the GMC Sierra AT4

The Ram Power Wagon has proved its mettle as the ultimate off-road truck many times before. However, there’s another contender – an unlikely one, too - that has the potential to give it a run for its money: meet the GMC Sierra AT4.

The GMC Sierra, despite its intimidating size and structure, is known for its luxuriousness and towing prowess. But the folks at TFL decided to pit the two against each other to see how the underdog performs out of its comfort zone. Do you think the Sierra AT4 can take down the Ram Power Wagon?

2018 GMC 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins

2018 GMC 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins

Now this is what we call a handicap-accessible vehicle!

The GMC Sierra 3500HD Denali by Rolling Big Power and Keaton Hoskins is a one-off truck that showcases custom features designed for disabled people. Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, this truck was created by Rolling Big Power, an industry leading manufacturer of aftermarket parts and Keaton “The Muscle” Hoskins from TV’s “Diesel Brothers.” It is based on the older, third-generation Sierra 3500HD Denali.

The truck was built for Jonathan Barber, who was involved in a coal-mining accident in 2017 that left him paralyzed from the chest down. Fitted with a 14-inch lift suspension, this bespoke Denali truck also features a gullwing door, hydraulic chair lift, and twist-handle controls for throttle and brakes, all designed to make life easier for its disabled driver. It’s fancy on the outside and practical on the inside, but it’s also special enough to draw a lot of onlookers at the SEMA Show or other truck-specific events. In other words, it’s a handicap-accessible show rig that we don’t get to see too often.

2019 GMC Sierra by Callaway

A powerful, yet overpriced package by the aftermarket manufacturer that has skyrocketed the price of the GMC Sierra 1500

There’s no denying that the auto industry is witnessing a paradigm shift. Sedans are dying, EVs are taking over, etc. While this shakedown has affected almost all the segments, trucks have been left unaffected. Their sales are growing every year, and this has given a strong niche for after-market companies to capitalize on. One of them is Callaway, a company that rebuilds these trucks in Connecticut and California. Callaway has been building vehicles for brands like Mazda, Aston Martin, and GM, to name a few. One of the company’s creations has been the GMC Sierra. Callaway has worked on the GMC Sierra 1500 to make it an interesting truck. Are the changes merely cosmetic?

2019 GMC Syclone by SVE

An actual performance package for the Canyon that’s limited to 100 units

Performance pickup trucks seem to be the trend these days. There’s the Ram Rebel TRX and the Raptor, but this is not a new concept per se. The truck that needs to be credited for making us believe that these butch looking vehicles could actually go fast was the GMC Syclone. It debuted in the 90s and was fast enough to scare the holy hell out of anyone because there was nothing known as ’fast trucks’ back then. However, the truck did not succeed. But, seeing the demand and potential now, the GMC Syclone is all set to make a comeback. The 2019 GMC Syclone is a tribute to the original truck by Specialty Vehicle Engineering, and from what it’s worth, it sure looks exciting.

Who would have imagined that carbon fiber would be used in truck beds one day!

GMC has done wonders with the 2019 models of the Sierra. The time has come where it finally frees itself from the clutches of the Fords, and the Rams, and the Chevys, and creates its own identity. Sounds too dramatic, right? Well, that’s because the Sierra’s story has been nothing short of wonderous. A truck that played second fiddle to the Chevy Silverado has finally managed to put itself shoulder-to-shoulder with the competitors, and there seems to be no stopping it. After the revamped and the reloaded models, GMC has introduced a CarbonPro Edition for Sierra 1500 trims. Now, this is a big deal because carbon fiber is something that supercars and hypercars dress in. Will this be a unique selling proposition for Sierra moving forward?

When practicality and utility is infused with luxury

GMC has always been the Robin to Chevy’s Batman. It has faithfully played the role of a wingman for quite some time, but now is its time to shine. The 2020 models of the GMC Sierra have been nothing short of a revelation. With revised, controversial exteriors, chrome walloped on the face, and new mills under the hood, the Sierra is set to take on the competition without being in the shadow of the Silverado.

GMC has thrown caution to the wind by going berserk with the latest model of its seven-seat SUV

GMC has unveiled the facelifted Acadia. Although we all expected just a few tweaks to the body and the cabin, GMC actually packed the Acadia with more than that. The 2020 GMC Acadia is now available with a new turbocharged engine, new technology, and a host of other features. Hell, the company has even launched a new trim level for the 2020 model year. Is GMC giving the Acadia a major push to capture a bigger market share from one of the fiercest segments?

The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC's Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful

The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful

Is this the new flashpoint in the pickup truck wars?

The more utility you can add to a pickup, the better it becomes. That’s a given, but how do you improve on the formula? It seems as though GMC found a way with its Multipro Tailgate and 2019 Sierra, which offers multiple configurations for improved access to the box, extended holding capacity, and a second-tier loading height. Now Ram is getting in on the action with its own take on the configurable tailgate concept, offering up something it’s calling the Multifunction Tailgate on all seven trim levels of the 2019 Ram 1500. Granted, GMC was the first in this space, but we think Ram might have the better tailgate this time around.

2020 GMC Sierra HD AT4

2020 GMC Sierra HD AT4

A potent pickup truck now with off-roading capabilities!

When we used to talk about pickup trucks a decade ago, the general notion was a barebone truck that only knows how to lift weights. It was also taken for granted that, since they are tough vehicles, even off-roading would be easy. But, like we all know, a pickup truck is not automatically qualified to explore untraveled or non-existent roads. Fast forward to 2019, and GMC has launched a truck called the GMC Sierra HD AT4 that is muscular, can travel off-road without showing its ’jungli-ness’, and has an interior that can put well-loaded sedans and SUVs to shame. We finally have a heavy duty version of the Sierra AT4, so let’s check it out, shall we?

Hazy statements from Mary Barra affect the credibility of the whole company

We are a little befuddled listening to what Mary Barra had to say about GM producing an all-electric truck. Who’s Mary Barra? Well, she is the CEO of General Motors and. when asked about doing an electric pickup truck to compete with Tesla’s upcoming pickup, she did not have any answer and just commented, ‘stay tuned.’ Stay tuned to watch GM go down?

2020 GMC Sierra HD

A step-up over the previous model in almost all the departments

GMC trucks are like the school students who don’t top the class, but they don’t fail either. They are never in the spotlight for good or bad reasons, with the exception of when the Sierra debuted with that new MultiPro tailgate. The GMC Sierra HD has been living in the shadow of its competition, the Silverado HD, and despite having a lot of things in common, it has never been able to trump the Chevy. However, it looks like the Sierra is trying to break those shackles with the 2020 model. The Sierra HD looks to have gotten rid of its flaws, and this time, it promises to be a well-packaged truck that can prove to be a serious threat to the competition.

What is the Cheapest GMC?

GMC’s cheapest offering is the mid-size pickup truck, Canyon. It has been around for ages and it’s still selling in decent volumes. It starts at $21,500. The best part about the GMC Canyon is the multitude of engine options on offer. Be it from a commercial point-of-view, or as your personal daily driver, GMC has got you covered in all the departments. Trucks, in general, have evolved in terms of driving dynamics, and ride and handling, but the Canyon still drives like an old truck. It won’t float your boat if you’re a driving enthusiast.

What is the Sportiest GMC?

There are many production vehicles to choose from that are sporty, but I’ll say the next-gen GMC Sierra Denali takes the cake. It comes with a host of features on the inside, looks great on the outside with the LED Daytime Running Lights, and V-8 engine options that are fast and powerful. The biggest one is a 6.2-liter, V-8 mill that makes 420 horses and 460 pound-feet of torque. You can opt for a carbon-fiber bed to give it a premium feel. Not to mention it features the famous MultiPro tailgate as well.

What is the Most Popular GMC?

The GMC Sierra seems to be the most popular model in the lineup. The company moved 224,554 examples of the Sierra in 2018. This includes all the variants together. Surprisingly, it is the top-of-the-line Denali trim that sells the most. It accounts for over 50 percent of the sales in the Sierra lineup.

What is the Most Expensive GMC?

The most expensive GMC is the Yukon Denali. It starts at $66,700. Equip it with the accessories that GMC offers and you will see the price touch $85,000. The Yukon Denali comes with a 6.2-liter, V-8 mill that churns out 420 horses and 460 pound-feet of torque. The SUV is as luxurious as one can ask for at this price point. When compared to the lower trims, the Denali has the suspension tuned better and the ride is comfortable overall. The only negatives in this SUV are the limited cargo space with all three rows of seats up and the price.

What is the Fastest GMC?

The GMC Sierra 1500 Denali is the fastest truck in the company’s portfolio. It is the smaller 4.3-liter, V-6 engine that makes it the fastest, and not the 6.2-liter-V-8 mill. The truck can sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in 7.3 seconds. The top speed is limited to 106 mph. As for the fuel economy, it delivers 22 miles per gallon on the highway and 16 mpg in the city.

Are GMC Cars Reliable?

GMCs are considered to be well-built and pretty safe for the occupants. But they are not as reliable as you would think. Repair Pal ranks them 21st out of 32 automakers. This rating is not a good sight if you are planning to buy a GMC vehicle to abuse it under hard conditions. But if you are not looking to go extreme with your vehicle, a GMC is not that hard to maintain. The annual repair is also slightly on the higher side, averaging $747. But, that will be for products like the Yukon and the Denali. For the likes of Canyon, the repair costs will be comparatively cheaper.
