GMC Reveals The 2021 Canyon Denali’s ’Heroic Grille’
GMC is finally getting out of Chevy’s shadow. Earlier this year, the company revealed that the brand’s mid-size pickup truck, Canyon, will receiving an AT4 trim. Now, the company has revealed that the refreshed truck’s top Denali will receive a new grille which it calls the ‘Heroic grille’ for some reason. The new grille is a tad bit larger than the one on the outgoing Canyon Denali, but thanks to the new design, it gives the truck a premium feel. Not bad, right?
GMC Hummer EV Launch Delayed Due To COVID-19
Back in January, GM announced that the Hummer brand is making a comeback as an electric brand. A couple of weeks later, the automaker teased the reincarnated brand’s first vehicle, an electric truck, in a commercial at the 2020 Superbowl. The short ads revealed a few details about the ‘quiet revolution’ along with the reveal date – May 20, 2020. The countdown had already begun and people were already looking forward to it, but it looks like the launch is delayed. The company announced in a statement that the Hummer EV’s launch is delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. Well, that’s the latest launch to be affected by COVID-19.
This Is What The 2022 Hummer EV’s Logo Looks Like
The Hummer EV is still a long time away, but here’s a new bit of information. GMC has filed for a new Hummer logo with the U.S. Patents and Trademarks Office. It still spells out “HUMMER”, but the font is different and fresh.
Along with this, GMC sent a second application as well, requesting the “Hummer” brand name to various applications. There was one application filed with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office as well. Although things seem to progress with the reincarnated brand, when will the truck itself be revealed, GM?
2020 GMC Sierra Denali Goliath 700 by 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?
The GMC Hummer EV Will Be Offered With Three All-Electric Powertrain Choices
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
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.
GMC Ups The Ante By Introducing The Off-Road AT4 Trim for The 2020 Canyon
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?
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
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
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
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.
2019 GMC Sierra Denali CarbonPro Edition
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?
2020 GMC Sierra HD Denali
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. Can the well-equipped truck shine like a bright star this time around?
The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful
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
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?
What Does the Future Hold For GM Trucks? Will the Company Be Able to Compete With Tesla and Rivian?
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?
