GMC (General Motors Truck Company) is one of the four surviving brands of the new modern General Motors corporation. Initially founded in 1901, GMC has been operating under its current name since 1912. It generally focuses on the production of trucks, SUVs and vans, though in the past they once built fire trucks, ambulances, motor homes, transit buses and even military vehicles. They also build medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles, but since these are not what most consumers think of when they think GMC, we'll focus only on their passenger vehicles, which do include their 2500 and 3500 HD Series trucks. The current GMC passenger vehicle lineup consists of seven different vehicles, and eighteen (18) different trim levels. GMC model names are Terrain, Acadia, Canyon, Yukon, Sierra, Envy, and Savana. These vehicles are built at seven of GM's total 90 plus facilties worldwide. Here is a breakdown of the factories, and which GMC vehicles they produce:
- The Fort Wayne Assembly plant, located in Roanoke, Indiana handles all production of the various GMC Sierra line of pickup tricks.
- The Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs are produced at the famous Arlington Assembly plant, of Arlington, Texas.
