General Motors’ upscale truck brand GMC has had a lot of success over the years putting out tough trucks. Add in the sometimes more luxurious aspects of the trucks and the 2017 GMC modes are great for almost anyone!
GMC Sierra 1500 - $29,700+ - 21.0 mpg - 4.6/5.0
The GMC Sierra shares its inner workings with the Chevy Silverado. That’s certainly not a bad thing and the Sierra 1500 is a very attractive full size truck. There are plenty of engine options ranging from a 285 horsepower V6 up to a 420 horsepower V8. Despite the appearance, the Sierra 1500 can still get work done with the ability to tow up to 12,000 lbs and a payload of up to 2260 lbs.
GMC Sierra 2500HD - $35,500+ - 18.0 mpg - 4.3/5.0
The interior of the GMC Sierra 2500 feels like you’ve stepped out of reality and into some sort of alternative luxurious dimension. Everything is tailored for comfort and convenience. This is how trucks are designed now, but it can still be a shock. The 2500 has all the different sizes of wheelbase and bed as well as the engine options to let you get the truck you need.
GMC Sierra 3500HD - $36,600+ 18.0 mpg - 4.8/5.0
The Sierra 1500 may be a work truck, but the 3500 is a work monster. It has the potential to nearly triple the payload of the 1500 and double the towing! In addition to that fact, the inside feels more like you’re driving a British luxury car than a work vehicle. The best Sierra option comes with a 397 hp turbodiesel that produces an eye catching 765 lb-ft torque.
GMC Terrain - $25,000+ - 23.0 mpg - 2.8/5.0
The GMC Terrain pretends to be a small crossover. However, it’s really much too large to be one. The size means that a lot of the benefits of small CUV’s like peppy performance and good fuel economy goes away. The Terrain does offer a lot of luxury options that can also appear in other GMC vehicles, but this turns an affordable crossover into an expensive small SUV.
GMC Savana - $32,000+ - 17.0 mpg - 3.5/5.0
The true meaning of utilitarian is the GMC Savana. Really you get two options. The first is the mass people hauler version. A GMC Savana makes for an excellent transport and can hold up to 15 people (though 12 is far more comfortable). Alternatively the cargo van version can have a payload of 4200 lbs!
GMC Acadia - $30,000+ - 25.0 mpg - 4.1/5.0
Despite being a mid-size crossover, the Acadia is one of the smallest vehicles in the GMC lineup. The Acadia does feature a lot of safety features and has a pretty great reputation there. With the 310 hp V6 it actually has some solid speed, and while not a great handling vehicle, can be fun. Picking up the mobile Wi-Fi option is a must for families!
GMC Canyon - $21,900+ - 24.0 mpg - 4.3/5.0
The midsize truck options are pretty limited these days. The GMC Canyon does have a lot in common with it’s cousin the Chevy Colorado. However the Canyon takes everything a step further with impressive options and better interior. There’s plenty of power available. The Canyon Denali version can take things to the highest luxury levels in this field if you are feeling luxurious!
GMC Yukon - $49,900+ - 20.0 mpg - 4.9/5.0
The Yukon is the flagship of the the GMC line. The Yukon provides tons of power. If you need the extra room, the Yukon XL provides even more size. 8 people can fit in the Yukon, 8 people can relax in comfort in the Yukon XL. If you choose the luxury Denali package, then the Yukon quickly turns into the GM version of the Cadillac Escalade. Luxury and options are everywhere and it’s almost a mobile comfort dome.
