The best selling GMC cars in the UAE
Known as the General Motors Truck Company, GMC motors was first launched by Max Gabrowski in 1901 and was initially called Rapid Motor Vehicle Company. Although the company produced some great trucks, it was unable to survive financially and was bought by General Motors in 1909 under the leadership of William Durant. The company was quickly renamed GMC and specialized in producing trucks and utility vehicles. Today, GMC has been in existence for more than a century and is synonymous with high-end trucks, SUVs, military cars, buses and vans. Despite its wide range of vehicles, GMC has three best selling models across the globe.
The Yukon is a large SUV that was previously badged as the Chevrolet Tahoe. Now in its fourth generation of production, the Yukon comes in three trim levels- SLE, SLT, and Denali. 2015 Yukon is the most remodelled of the range in recent times. The 2018 GMC Yukon has been modified to include the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine that produces 420hp for the Denali. Base models are powered by the standard 5.3L engine.

The GMC Acadia is currently one of the most popular midsize SUVs and for good reason. From the upscale interior to the smooth drive and a cool infotainment, there is very little not to like in the Acadia. Now in its second generation of production, the Acadia first came into the market in 2007 and was modelled after the Buick Enclave and the Chevrolet Traverse. Very few modifications have been made on the 2018 Acadia and this is attributed to the fact that the 2017 model was a complete makeover and bore several changes which have been passed on to the new 2018 model. The 2018 GMC Acadia is powered by the same engines that were used in the 2017 model. The 2.5L inline-four engine delivering 193hp is used as the base while options include the powerful 3.6L V6 engine that produces 310hp. These engines come with front and all-wheel drive options. Nonetheless, the 2018 Acadia comes with a new All Terrain model which is an off-road trim with a unique all-wheel drive system. The All Terrain is now availed with three rows of seating.additionally, GMC has added one new color to the exterior palette, the Blue Steel Metallic and installed the handy tire-fill alert that sets off an audible alert to caution the driver that the tire is fully inflated.
The GMC Sierra shares the same mechanical framework as its cousin, Chevrolet Silverado. However, General Motors markets this truck as the premium version of the Silverado. Despite being a truck, the Sierra comes with several upgrades including cool infotainment system that has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2019 Sierra is the latest production of the GMC Sierra trucks and even though it is yet to go on sale, it was unveiled back in March 2018. Just like the recently launched 2019 Silverado, the 2019 Sierra packs a boxful of modifications. This includes a wider and more masculine look with blocky headlights at the front. GMC announced that it will be using carbon-fiber bed to produce the Sierra 1500 Denali trim, making it 62 pounds lighter than the steel version. Besides being expanded by a few inches, the interior of the 2019 Sierra will also include more upscale materials such as pebble-grain leather upholstery and authentic open-pore wood trim. A new infotainment complete with a new head-up display will also be availed in the new truck. To top all these, the 6.2L and 3.0L engines will be combined with a new 10-speed automatic transmission and an array of safety tech features installed to assist the driver. With all these features, and correct pricing, the 2019 GMC Sierra is bound to give rivals like the Silverado, RAM 1500 and Ford F-150 a run for their money.
