GMC Recognized as One of the Longest-Lasting Brands

In a recent survey that assessed over 15.8 million vehicles, iSeeCars.com found that GMC is one of the longest-lasting brands. The study was conducted in order to discover which vehicles consistently make it to the 200,000-mile mark, and the GMC brand earned third place overall in the study.

GMC trucks and large SUVs, in particular, performed well in the study, lasting a great number of miles. The Yukon and the Yukon XL both ranked highly on the list of the longest-lasting SUVs, with the Yukon XL claiming the seventh spot.

The 2020 Yukon XL provides plenty of space in its sophisticated cabin with up to 121.7 cubic feet of cargo volume. Plus, the SUV has seating for up to nine passengers and lots of family-friendly amenities, making it the ideal vehicle for long family road trips.

The GMC Sierra 1500 took the sixth spot on the list of the longest-lasting light-duty pickups. The 2020 model is a powerful and capable option, coming available with a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine. When properly equipped, it can tow up to 12,100 pounds with ease.

GMC CarbonPro™ Coming This Summer

GMC Sierra

The durability of carbon fiber is hard to beat. Not only is it amazingly strong and light, but it can be formed into almost any shape imaginable. These features make it one of the most versatile and desirable materials today. GMC recently announced that it will start producing special-edition versions of the Sierra called the GMC CarbonPro™ starting in early June.

The package will be available on the Sierra Denali 1500 and the Sierra AT4 1500. It will include a CarbonPro bed designed with a unique carbon fiber composition that delivers best-in-class resistance to dents, scratches, and corrosion.

“CarbonProis made of the same raw material found in seven-figure super cars and even aerospace applications,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global GMC. “Coupled with offering the world’s first six-function MultiPro tailgate, the 2019 Sierra packs a one-two hauling punch for whatever the situation demands.”

Along with its impeccable durability, the CarbonPro bed will weight 25-percent less than a traditional steel bed, which equates to about 60 pounds. It also eliminates the need for a bed liner, saving even more weight. Because of its thin construction, it increases the already class-leading cargo volume of the Sierra’s bed by 1 cubic foot.

This innovative bed comes with two additional tie-downs in addition to the 12 standard tie-downs found on the steel beds. It also comes with indentations in the bed to help keep certain cargo more secure.
