2017 GMC Acadia

Mar 16th
Fortunes are built on meeting expectations. Every Big Mac is the same at every McDonald’s. Lightsabers are stupid weapons, but they’re in every Star Wars movie. The WWE is a business empire built on preordained results. And the 2017 GMC Acadia Denali is exactly what you expect of a vehicle sharing its name with not one, but two U.S. national…

Gas prices have dipped nearly 50 cents per gallon in a year, providing suburban cowboys with a guilt-free opportunity to scratch that off-road itch. Enter GMC with a well-timed All Terrain X package for the Sierra 1500.The truck reviewed here is a two-step march up from the base $48,465 Sierra 1500 4WD Crew Cab SLT, which lives just below the…
2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD

Mar 6th
GMC may be a truck brand, but its current luxury crossovers and the latest Sierra 1500 pickup push the boundaries of its utilitarian image. Fear not, because the 2015 Sierra HD proves that the brand’s toughest truck can retain its roughneck charm even while receiving a much-needed updating.Assembled for initial drives on the outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona—alongside its blue-collar sibling,…
2016 GMC Canyon

Mar 1st
Whether because of stubbornness, a true belief in the technology, or the fact that automotive product plans can’t easily be unraveled, General Motors is standing behind diesel despite the fuel type’s battered reputation of late. (Thanks, VW.) Indeed, the new Cruze once again will offer a diesel engine, Cadillac is moving forward with development of its own diesel powerplants, and—most…
2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD

Feb 29th
Not so long ago, heavy-duty pickups were agricultural workhorses with all the amenities of a covered wagon. While the segment’s continual one-upmanship ensures that each new iteration is larger, tougher, and more sophisticated than the heavy-duty truck that came before, GMC’s latest Sierra 2500HD Denali incorporates levels of refinement heretofore unheard of around the job site.The 2015 GMC Sierra HD…
2016 GMC Terrain

Feb 21st
There are currently lots of fresh players in the white-hot compact-crossover segment. The GMC Terrain, however, is not one of them, having changed little since its debut in 2009 as the smallest of the truck brand’s “Professional Grade” vehicles. While we expect a more compact and efficient redesign to appear within the next year or so, the current Terrain—and its…
2017 GMC Canyon

Feb 16th
Since their reintroduction in 2014, the GMC Canyon and the Chevrolet Colorado have reinvigorated a market for mid-size pickups that many industry observers had concluded was dead. U.S. truck buyers, they said, had little interest in pickups in anything less than size XL—or larger.Some might say that, at 212.4 inches in length and riding on a wheelbase more than 10…
2017 GMC Yukon XL

Feb 15th
General Motors pretty much owns the full-size SUV segment with its entries from Chevrolet, GMC, and Cadillac. Sales of the General’s six regular- and extended-length full-size SUVs totaled 255,907 through November; in the same period, Ford found just 63,887 buyers for its four total variants of the competing Expedition and Lincoln Navigator. It can’t hurt that GM covers all the…
2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD

Feb 11th
Numbers are an obsession in the auto industry. Corporate suits worry about build costs, profit margins, and sales volumes; sports-car fans spend more time watching horsepower counts, acceleration times, and top speeds. But heavy-duty truck enthusiasts live and die by numbers, perhaps more than any other segment of the automotive sphere.To that end, the 2011 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty—along with…
2013 GMC Terrain

Feb 9th
GMC replaced the Terrain’s previously optional 3.0-liter V-6 with a more-powerful 3.6-liter for 2013. This review largely focuses on the new engine, but our impressions were heavily shaded by our example’s Denali trim. GMC’s top-spec trim treatment is new to the Terrain this year, and, as when the badge is applied to the larger Acadia and Yukon, it comes with…
2007 GMC Acadia

Feb 5th
Okay, what's this about a shorter name? And who the hell is this Evangeline?Listen up. GMC, which dates to 1909, was formerly GMC Truck — appropriate, since that's what this General Motors division made: trucks and buses. The story goes back even farther, to the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company, one of America's first commercial-vehicle concerns, established in 1901 by Max…
2014 GMC Sierra 1500

Jan 25th
Identical twins can be hard to tell apart, but it gets easier when they’re wearing name tags. Maybe that’s why GM attaches big Chevrolet and GMC badges on its pickup-truck twins, the Silverado and the Sierra.The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra aren’t quite identical, but engines, transmissions, chassis, and most of the sheetmetal are shared. What’s obviously different is the…
