GMC Sierra Limited Denali — A stopgap until the 'real' 2022 arrives

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(January 23, 2022) If you don't get it right the first time, the best course of action is to step back, re-evaluate and make improvements. Then start again with a fresh set of ideas. That's what the designers and engineers at GMC did with the Sierra. The latest-generation Sierra was introduced in 2019, but customers found its design and technology fell short of the Ram pickup, and even the Ford F-150 before Ford's all-new 2021 truck arrived.

2021 GMC Yukon AT4

PHOENIX — The GMC Yukon is the middle child of General Motors full-sized sport-utility vehicles. A premium alternative to its Chevrolet Tahoe sibling but not quite a Cadillac Escalade either. All three share the mechanical underpinnings of GM’s pickup trucks and have been thoroughly redone for 2021 with its fifth generation offering.

If your goal is to make the biggest statement possible in terms of performance, off-roading, towing, payload, interior refinement and advanced technologies all in one truck look no further than your nearest GMC dealer. Check out the 2021 off-road-ready GMC Sierra 2500HD AT4 Crew Cab with the 6.6-liter Duramax turbo diesel V-8 paired to a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission.

GMC Yukon — Bigger and better

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(March 14, 2021) There aren't many truck-based SUVs left on the market because the unibody (crossover) models are generally more refined, more versatile, more feature-laden and more fuel efficient than the traditional body-on-frame entrants. The all-new truck-based 2021 GMC Yukon is one of several truck-based new SUVs that changes things with more refinement and sophistication, but without sacrificing its massive towing and load-carrying capabilities.

2021 GMC Yukon AT4

INDIANAPOLIS — One of my favorite car magazines essentially called GM’s all-new full-size SUVs losers because they’re apparently not that great on the skid pad.  In other words, their grip when being driven like a race car is not good.  Well, newsflash, full-size SUVs weighing 5,677 lbs. and packing the underpinnings to rise up and bound over rough trails are rarely very good at autocrossing.  Climb aboard the completely redesigned 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 and I suspect you won’t care.

2020 GMC Sierra HD

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. — GMC has just introduced its full line of heavy-duty trucks for 2020 at a media drive event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Engineers at the event emphasized that the new trucks are the most capable heavy-duty truck they’ve ever built, and promised world-class towing capability, out muscling the likes of Ford Super Duty and Ram HD with a class leading maximum towing capacity of 35,500 pounds.

GMC Sierra AT4 — Off-road performance

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

In years past there hasn't been much to distinguish the GMC Sierra from the Chevrolet Silverado other than the Sierra was more feature-laden and came in at a higher price point. It seems one of General Motors' goals with its all-new-for-2019 full-sized trucks was to better differentiate appearance and personality that easily distinguishes the brands giving the GMC a clear-cut personality of its own.

2019 GMC Sierra Denali

PHOENIX — Pickup trucks are better than ever and the hottest selling vehicle segment on the market thanks to America’s growing love affair, an insatiable appetite for them and a strong economy. It also helps that most automakers have dramatically upped their game with new entrants like the return of the Ford Ranger and Honda Ridgeline mid-sized trucks. Still others like Ram, Chevrolet and GMC are all new for 2019.

Genesis G80 3.3T — An all-around winner

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Earlier this year Genesis was named the top ranked luxury automaker in Consumer Reports 2018 brand ratings. Genesis also finished second behind Porsche — and ahead of such vaunted nameplates as Audi and Lexus — in the latest J.D. Power APEAL study, which measures customer satisfaction with a brand. These and other accolades are astounding considering Genesis was spun off of parent Hyundai Motor Company less than three years ago, and currently has only two models.

GMC Terrain — Compact crossover standout

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

You are in the market for a new compact crossover SUV, but this time around you would like to stand out from the crowd, drive something different than the popular segment offerings — but without sacrificing performance, build quality, cargo space and passenger comfort.
