2024 GMC Sierra Denali

MIAMI — When it comes to motor vehicles, America has a long established love affair of pickup trucks as evidenced by the fact that the top three sellers traditionally are pickups from Ford (F-Series), Chevrolet (Silverado), and Ram.
And those are full-size babies, not the cute little modified SUVs that some manufacturers have come out with in recent years. Real workhorses with top-of-the-line models offering a combination of luxury, utility, and versatility that not even the ubiquitous SUV can beat.

(August 13, 2023) The off-road craze is heating up with a growing supply of go-anywhere vehicles including several full-sized pickup trucks. A prime example is the vehicle we have been driving — the GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV. Other competing off-road pickups include he Ford F-150 Raptor, Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 and the Ram TRX. While the AT4X does not get the horsepower of the over-the-top TRX or the Raptor, it has an excellent balance of off-road bits and pieces and horsepower and torque ratings.

(February 19, 2023) While the nation's automobile manufacturers are feverishly designing and building electric trucks to meet the "green" demand that seems to be sweeping the country, they continue to sell in great numbers trucks with brutish V-8 engines endowed with gobs of horsepower and torque and with incredible off-road capabilities. And despite the perceived desirability of everything without a gas tank, people still love their outlandishly capable trucks.

PHOENIX — Notwithstanding the price of gasoline averaging nearly five dollars a gallon for premium and an avalanche of media hype, manufacturer TV advertisement for electric vehicles and the seemingly unquenchable thirst for SUVs from the car buying public, full-sized pickup trucks sales in the U.S. continue to reign supreme in sales numbers.

(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.

(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.
