The Mission of GMC and a GMC Dealer

GMC Dealer

Every dealer needs a mission in order to truly make their mark on the automotive world. At GMC the mission is made into multiple parts that all come together to equal a manufacturer and GMC dealer you can trust to provide you with the best selection of large and balanced SUVs and trucks this nation and possibly this world, has to offer the public.

GMC Mission Statements

Ever since its founding over a century ago, GMC has held true to a number missions, there are four main missions that GMC and GMC dealers uphold at all costs.

Mission Statement One: The Bigger the Better

You will never see a sedan, coupe, or convertible on the lot of a strictly GMC dealer. This is because they are a division of General Motors that specializes in trucks and utility vehicles. SUVs, Light-Duty trucks, and Heavy-Duty trucks of the best quality will be the ones that find their home at GMC. Some say size doesn’t matter, but GMC thinks differently. Here are some of the size stats:


  • The GMC Terrain is 182″ L x 72″ W x 65″ H  with a curb weight of 3,449 to 3,841 pounds and 29.6 ft³, 63.3 ft³ with seat area in cargo space
  • The GMC Acadia is 194″ L x 75″ W x 66″ H with a curb weight of 3,956 pounds and 12.8 ft³, 79 ft³ with seat area in cargo space
  • The GMC Yukon is 204″ L x 81″ W x 74″ H with a curb weight of 5,626 pound and 15.3 ft³, 94.7 ft³ with seat area in cargo space

  • The GMC Sierra 1500 is 205-239″ L x 80″ W x 74″ H with a curb weight of 4,515 to 5,461 pounds
  • The GMC Sierra 2500 is 224-258″ L x 80-81″ W x 78″ H with a curb weight of 5,741 to 6,689 pounds
  • The GMC Sierra 3500 is 224-258″ L x 80-96″ W x 78″ H with a curb weight of 8,070 pounds

Mission Statement Two: Bold is the New Beautiful

GMC vehicles are not just big; they are also bold. By design, every GMC from the smallest to the largest can intimidate on presence alone. Looking at one will give you the chills while being in one gives you the confidence to take on your great fears and most epic journeys. A lot of that boldness comes from the signature GMC grille with the GMC logo front and center, but there is also a boldness in even the more subtle exterior features.

Boldness isn’t just about exterior features though. What makes a vehicle truly bold is what’s under the hood. The engine selection for GMC vehicles outperforms nearly every other automotive in their class. Here is what they have to offer:

Overall, these vehicles are truly commanding on and off the street, and it loves to show it by dominating every other vehicle in its class.

Mission Statement Three: Vehicles Should Always Be Brilliant

Just because a vehicle is big does not mean that it can’t also be smart, refined, and downright brilliant, and with every model made, GMC has proven that. GMC offers only the latest technology and highest-quality materials in their vehicles. Craftsmanship is far from dead at GMC and they care about everything from the way they stitch to the upholstery and exterior paint the use. GMCs infotainment, for example, is one of the best in the automotive world at the moment. It is easy to navigate and offers a plethora of features that are sure to make your life easier. The main appeal is that it links directly to your personal smartphone so that you can send and receive hands-free calls and texts while on the open road, or listen to your personalized playlist. Your smartphone can also get the MyGMC app to make life easier by connecting you with your GMC vehicle even when you aren’t in it. Basically this is one brilliant model.

Mission Statement Four: Balance is Everything

The best thing about GMC is their ability to balance all of these missions into not just one, but a whole lineup of outstanding vehicles that never fail to impress year after year with their refined ruggedness. When brash boldness and elegant brilliance are both a requirement, it is essential that both are integrated with the utmost care, and GMC always manages to pull that off in both style and features.  Balance is what makes GMC is unique in the automotive world, and that is why it is their fourth and most important mission.
