GMC (the brand name for trucks made and sold by General Motors) has also started to produce hybrid driving systems as these have become more popular with the public in recent years.

Completely reshaped for this year, the Arcadia is GMC's full-sized crossover which now comes with a brand new innovation, namely the center front airbag. The Arcadia has a 3.6 liter V6 engine under the hood which has an output of 288 hp with its 6 speed auto transmission that is coupled with front wheel drive as standard or all wheel drive as an optional extra. Included in the price is a dual paneled sunroof, a three zoned climate control system, leather seats and the ability to use your phone hands free.

The GMC Sierra 1500 is GMC's equivalent of the popular Chevy Silverado, and is a large sized pickup truck which has the ability to tow 7,200 pounds. There are three engine sizes to choose from, starting with the basic 4.3 liter V6 and rising to a 5.3 liter V8, as well as these there is also a 4.8 liter V8 to choose from. Rear wheel drive comes as standard but 4 wheel drive is an optional extra for all engine sizes and the two smaller engine sizes come with a 4 speed auto transmission, whereas the 5.3 liter is coupled with a 6 speed automatic transmission.

The features that you could expect to find with the GMC 1500 include 22 inch sized wheels, rear camera to assist reversing, steering wheel mounted controls and satellite navigation. The Sierra is also available as a Hybrid with the ability to tow up to 6,100 lbs in weight. Under the hood you will be impressed with the sizeable 6.0 liter hybrid engine in a V8 configuration that produces 332 hp and it comes with the option to upgrade the standard rear wheel drive up to 4 wheel drive and is coupled with a 2-speed hybrid transmission. It also features the latest in high-tech features, such as heated mirrors and a rear mounted camera to aid reverse parking.

The Sierra 2500HD is for the most part unchanged for 2013 and is more suited for heavy duty use as a full-sized pickup truck, and it can tow an impressive weight load of up to 17,800 lbs. It is capable of towing this amount of weight thanks to its 6.0 liter V8 configured engine that produces 360 hp, but for even greater performance, GMC also offer a 6.6 liter turbocharged V8 diesel powered engine which takes the horse power up to a mighty 397. A 6 speed auto transmission can be complemented by an option 4 wheel drive, otherwise rear wheel drive comes as standard.

Another mostly unaltered GMC pickup truck is the GMC Sierra 3500HD, another heavy duty full sized truck that can shift a mighty 22,600 pounds of weight. It is a hard working V8 engine with a 6.0 liter that produces 322 hp that moves this beast of a truck about, but it doesn't end there as GMC also offers a 6.6 liter V8 engine that is a turbocharged diesel which takes the horse power up to 397.

GMC also offer a couple of SUVs that include the GMC Terrain which now comes in the Denali trim and can seat up to five people and it can tow up to 1,500 pounds in weight. Under the hood is a 4 cylinder 2.4 liter engine although a larger 3.0 liter V6 engine for that little bit extra performance. Four wheel drive comes as standard and there is the option for all wheel drive to be added as well, all controlled by a 6 speed automatic gearbox.

For 2013 the GMC Yukon comes with new paint options for the exterior and this SUV comes with standard and opulent Denali styling. Both styles come with a hood bursting 5.3 liter V8 engine that produces 320 hp. There is also the option to swap the standard rear wheel drive with the 4 wheel drive alternative and these are coupled with an automatic 6 speed gearbox. As with the GMC Terrain, the Yukon comes with features that include leather seats, powered lift gate, touch screen satellite navigation and an excellent sound system. All GMC trucks and SUVs come with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty for your peace of mind.
