From the beginning, General Motors Truck Company (GMC, for short) has been committed to manufacturing trucks that could withstand the hauling demands of commercial operations. In 1902, Max Grabowsky began manufacturing trucks under a company known as the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company. A short seven years later, General Motors brought this small operation into their corporate fold, and the first trucks to bear the GMC logo were released in 1912.
Over the last century, GMC has consistently broken records and shattered standards for commercial-grade vehicles as well as heavy-duty military trucks. In fact, the U.S. military used GMC trucks in both World Wars! Their technological advances made an impact on commercial transport, but the company's contributions to transportation don't stop there. GMC serves consumers, as well, as they strive to uphold high standards in their "trucks for people, trucks for freight, [and] trucks for fun."
After World War II, Americans needed a vehicle that was both powerful and enjoyable. Thus, the 1957 GMC Suburban pickup entered the spotlight. Over the last half-century, the Suburban model has evolved in style and efficiency, but its station-wagon-meets-pickup-truck silhouette and function have remained much the same. Now sold under the Chevrolet name (a company also owned by General Motors), the Suburban is still an iconic and universally recognized sport utility vehicle.
Trucks like the foundational Sierra model remain at the core of GMC’s lineup, and the company now offers a selection of crossover and SUV models built to suit consumers' busy lifestyles. The GMC Acadia, Terrain, and Yukon models can deliver the cargo capacity of a truck combined with the driving experience of a crossover SUV.
