GMC News

GMC, sometimes referred to as GMC Truck, is a brand of General Motors and one of four core brands that remains after the automaker emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2009. Normally the second best-selling GM brand behind Chevrolet, GMC markets mostly trucks, SUVs and CUVs under the tagline "Professional Grade," though all are versions of models sold by other GM brands.

    Official: No carbon fiber was harmed in the making of new 2015 GMC Sierra Carbon Edition
    1410560940

    Carbon fiber is known for its properties of combining amazing strength with extremely low weight, and its frequent use in high performance vehicles gives the material a somewhat aggressive air. GMC is hoping to play on some of that mean reputation with its upcoming trio of Sierra Carbon Editions. However, despite their name, there's no actual carbon ...

    It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two ...

    General Motors has announced yet another sprawling recall campaign, with six separate elements covering 717,950 vehicles on US roads.

    Official: GM confirms 2015 Silverado, Sierra to get 8-speed automatic

    When viewed alongside the next Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500, there is one thing that seems to be missing from the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Where the F-150 will rely on turbocharging and aluminum architecture and the Ram sports an eight-speed automatic and an air suspension, the General Motors twins lack a big, calling-card feature. They're very ...

    Through the first six months of 2014, General Motors has recalled 29 million cars and trucks in 54 different actions. If your author's notoriously sketchy math is correct, that'd work out to one recall every 3.5 days (as of this writing). GM is actively fighting to make sure there isn't a 55th recall, though. Safety critics, including perennial nemesis ...

At the time, General Motors happily trumpeted that its fullsize pickup could tow up to 11,500 pounds when properly equipped – impressive stuff, no doubt. But now, revised tow rating practices have been put into place, called SAE J2807. And with these new methods of testing, GM can now ...
