A Brand of Incredible Legacy

The GMC legacy began back in 1902 when the Grabowsky Motor Vehicle Company debuted its first trucks to help local businesses transport their goods and services. Run by Max Grabowsky, who began his career in the automotive industry some years prior, the Grabowsky Motor Vehicle Company later changed its name to Rapid Motor Vehicle Company and thereafter captured the attention of industry giant William C. Durant. Taking Rapid under his wing, by 1909, Durant folded them into his General Motors family of vehicles and began manufacturing top-performing trucks with GMC badging.

GMC was so well-versed in designing high-quality trucks that the brand's ¾-ton Model 16 was adopted by the Army as its standard truck, assisting soldiers in wartime efforts in the First World War. As the brand shifted into the '30s, more trucks emerged in its arsenal, as well as one of the most famous models that's still in production today, the Suburban Carryall. Now donning the bowtie emblem, the Chevy Suburban—which launched in 1935—is the longest-running nameplate in the GMC auto family's history. Even at its inception, the Suburban was capable of hauling more cargo, like a truck, with a convenient and agile driving experience similar to a sedan. When the Second World War broke out, GMC was at the head of the pack, designing durable military trucks, including cargo trucks, dump trucks, fire engines, and more.

It wasn't until after the war's end that the GMC name really began to make its mark on the industry, with the emergence of several civilian "dream trucks" accentuated by cutting-edge design and comfort features not found in other trucks of that era. Mini pickups, vans, and SUVs made their way down the pipeline, providing drivers with further options for their travels. Today, the GMC brand remains a trendsetter in the industry, showcasing a lineup of sophisticated vehicles that perform better than many of their rivals. Electric options have also entered the GMC lineup, showcasing state-of-the-art battery technology that has paved the way for others to follow suit. From its humble origin in manufacturing delivery trucks to becoming the industry giant that it is today, the GMC name commands respect not only from consumers but from the competition.

Plus, with so many models available, including the luxurious Denali and off-road-ready AT4, there's a truck tailored to every driver.

The variety of SUVs in the GMC lineup is also exceptional, with high-end SUVs of all sizes appealing to everyone, from commuters to families to backcountry go-getters. The compact Terrain leads off the SUV lineup, recognized for its rugged good looks, roomy interior cabin space, and efficient engine. The midsize Acadia exhibits a truck-inspired design and an accommodating cabin to appeal to families and others traveling with more. When you require a vehicle that can handle more passengers and gear, the full-size Yukon and larger Yukon XL are there to deliver, with an expansive cabin with three rows of space, a strong selection of powerful engines, and a ruggedness that can't be beaten.

Magnificent and cutting-edge electric offerings include the Hummer EV Pickup and Hummer EV SUV, both of which showcase some of the most advanced electric engineering in the business.
