Why Choose a GMC Vehicle
GMC has been around for decades, with its global headquarters located right in the heart of the automotive industry in Detroit, Michigan. They also have manufacturing facilities in Oakland and St. Louis. It was originally founded as a holding company for Buick back in 1908. What you may not know is that there are actually 10 brands that fall under the GMC company's umbrella, including well-known brands like GMC, Cadillac, Buick, and Chevrolet, and a few you may or may not have heard of like Opel, Holden, Wuling, Vauxhall, Jiefang, and Baojun.
Not only are they focused on safety, but GMC actually designed the crash test dummy that we all know about today and is used globally to help ensure the safety of a variety of vehicles. They were also the first company to create a rollover test facility, and they have more cars, trucks, and crossovers with a five-star overall vehicle score than any other company in the industry at the moment. In addition to pick-up trucks, GMC currently manufactures vans, SUVs, and light and medium duty trucks.
GMC also stands at the peak of innovation by being the first in technology in areas such as the patented streaming video rearview mirror, more vehicles with 4G LTE connectivity than any other manufacturer, and an affordable electric car that gets up to 238 miles on a single charge.
