GMC for sale in the Philippines
GMC is a vehicle sub-division under the American automotive manufacturer General Motors (GM) corporation. The company is a well-known producer of buses, vans, trucks and sports utility vehicles (SUVs) which are mainly marketed in the Middle East and North America.
GMC’s fleet is similar in design to its co-group Chevrolet, especially their SUV models. The only difference is their unique features, minor styling tweaks and trim levels. The brand’s full size models are its most compelling products because of their “class leading” features.
Max Grabowski founded the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company, a truck manufacturer, in 1902. Seven years later, General Motors purchased the company and decided to make it the company’s division in charge of producing capable, well built trucks. Back then, GMC produced utility trucks that were used as military trucks, ambulances, fire trucks and dump trucks.
GMC were mostly active in producing large trucks and buses during the 1930’s and 1940’s. Their product line sales climbed thanks to the Buick-built engines (produced by Buick, another GM subdivision) that were installed in their vehicles. The company built a variety of commercial vehicles from half-ton pickups to trucks and buses weighing 10 tons or more.
During World War II, GMC actively participated in producing military vehicles that would aid the war efforts of the United States. Models such as the GMC Jimmy and the DUKW, which US soldiers nicknamed “The Duck,” were widely used by the American troops.
Today, the American automaker is known for producing full size SUVs such as the GMC Yukon, GMC Denali and GMC Terrain. They also have pick-up trucks under the GMC Sierra line.
“We are Professional Grade” is one of GMC’s newest campaign slogans. The company has always been GM’s second largest selling division in North America ahead of Pontiac and next only to Chevrolet.
GMC has a large line-up of vehicles including the popular GMC Savana Explorer, a full size cargo van. The Savanna is known for its spacious interior which can be converted to the taste of its owner. Some of the upgrades that can be installed in this unit are entertainment and gaming systems, and captain’s chairs.
Other van models under the Savanna logo are: the Savana Cutaway, Savana Passenger and Savana Cargo. The price of these models ranges from P3.2 million to P4 million for three year-old second hand units and under.
GMC models are marketed in the Philippines under the supervision of General Motors Philippines.
