GMC is the truck division of the General Motors Company. It was formed by the purchase, in
1909, of Max Grabowski's Rapid Motor Vehicle Company, which had developed some of the
earliest commercial trucks ever designed. Grabowski's trucks used a one-cylinder engine.
That same year, GM purchased another manufacturer, the Reliance Motor Car Company.
Rapid and Reliance merged, and a year later, under the marque GMC Truck, they first presented
at the New York Auto Show. That year, 22,000 trucks were produced, but only 372 were
GMC's. That number would dramatically increase during World War II, when GMC Truck
produced 600,000 trucks for use by the US military.
GM purchased controlling interest in Yellow Coach, a Chicago, Illinois-based bus manufacturer,
in 1925, and then purchased the remaining interest in 1943, after which the company was
renamed GM Truck and Coach Division. It produced transit and inter-urban buses in Canada and
the US until the 1980s, but, facing steep competition, it stopped producing buses at that time.
GMC's bus models were sold in 1987, to Transportation Manufacturing Corporation (also Motor
Coach Industries in Canada), and later NovaBus.
Now known simply as GMC, the brand is used on trucks, vans and SUVs marketed by General
Motors in North America and the Middle East. GMC was GM's 2nd largest selling light vehicle
division after Chevrolet in January 2007.
2013 GMC Yukon
Okay, so the 2013 GMC Yukon doesn't have the eye-catching appeal or luxurious feel of many other full-size SUVs, such as the Cadillac Escalade or Ford Expedition, it still appeals to many potential car buyers with capable abilities and a standard appearance. The Yukon is available to consumers in 9 of GMCs standard colors and the base model starts at a price of $40,185. While this price certainly isn't cheap, it is more affordable than many of its competitors on the market today.
The 2013 Yukon comes with standard bi-xenon headlights, which provide the ultimate in road visibility. It has a very wide stance, even for a full-size SUV and comes with GMC's signature front grille. The middle model, the Yukon SLT comes with an available chrome package, enhancing the outward appearance of this SUV. This comprehensive package includes 20-inch mirror-polished aluminum wheels, a fully chrome front grille, chrome door handles, chrome-tipped exhaust pipes and mirror caps. If this doesn't turn some heads on the road, we're not sure what else will. more
