Difference Between GMC and Chevy

gmc-vehicleGMC vs Chevy

GMC (General Motors truck Company) and Chevrolet (also known as “Chevy”) are two of the leading brand names of vehicles. The vehicles under this brand, particularly trucks, are mostly identical since they are both manufactured by the same company, GM (General Motors).

In the GM’s line-up of brands, Chevrolet holds the position as the top-selling brand. It has been like that ever since and up to this day. GMC follows the Chevrolet in the ranking however, the GMC brand only manufacture three types of vehicles ‘“ trucks/pick-ups, vans, and SUV/Crossovers. Chevrolet, on the other hand, has vehicles of all types including sedans, compact cars, and sub-compact cars.

GMC and Chevrolet are very similar in SUVs, trucks, and vans. This is where the confusion starts and some may say that one is better than the other. Actually, they are essentially the same and it’s just a matter of individual aesthetic taste. The difference between the two is mostly cosmetic. They have slight divergences in their trims ‘“ grilles, emblems, interiors, and other minor visuals. Many would say that GMC is usually slightly better equipped.

Back in the 60s, their main distinction from each other is their headlights where GMC sported quad-headlights and Chevys were equipped with dual-headlights. However, in 1973, General Motors end the production of quad-headlight models making the two brands even more similar. It was the start of GMC/Chevrolet line of extremely similar line of trucks. It still stands today; even vans and SUVs have complementary models from both brands.

Since both brands have the same engineering make-up and very similar designs, perhaps the only other differing aspect of the two brands is the dealership. In the United States, GMC is usually sold by dealers in combination with Buick or Pontiac, typically at lower volumes than the equivalent Chevrolet trucks. GMC’s trucks, vans, and SUVs offer more options and standard features than Chevrolet, while Chevrolet is often offered as an entry-level car.

  1. are GMC half-tons pickups a little heavier than a Chevrolet Silverado half ton pickup

    • Model for model option for option no difference
      Chevy sells more fleet base models so average cost lower but spec similar similar throughout range

  2. I have 1996 GMC CHEVY SIERRA DARK GREEN WITH A LARGE TOOLBOX ON THE BACK WITH DUAL EXHAUST. MOTOR IS A 350 V8. MY TRUCK RECENTLY WAS GOING DIWN MY ROAD FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES AND JUST LIKE IT WAS REMOTELY SHUT OFF IT JUST. STOPPED DRIVING. NOW MY POWER WINDOWS AND ENGINE WILL NOT START.
    I BOUGHT THIS ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO. DO YOU KNOW WHAT COUKD POSSIBLY BE WRONG WITH IT?? It’s as if something like lonestar or remotely was just shut off. Here is my telephone number 8438018902
    Thank you
    Also it is a full size truck. There is multiple wires and 2 fuse boxes which I found several missing but I do not have air bags.I was told that in 1996 they did not offer air bags to the GMC CHEVY SIERRA. Also is the 350 dual exhaust stock. It seems that the steering column has been changed out and The day my car shut down I found a large extension cord orange hooked to wires under the dash. There is also 1 switch that says 4 wheel drive but I do not have 4 wheel drive on my truck. I believe the vin number and title number may have been changed by some dirty cops a few years ago. The reason I am bringing this up is because recently my truck looks chop shopped. If I was to include pictures of this can you tell me if this has been done. The truck has multiple large wires colored pink light blue violet green red orange brown light green yellow black dark blue root beer and white. I recently lost my partner and all of this started happening when I went away for some grieving time. When I came back my truck was not the same.
    I live in south carolina for now can you advise me of a contact reliable and honest and does this sound a little odd. A few months ago I remember receiving a auto warrenty IN MY NAME ONLY and I thought this is strange my truck is a 1996 unless possibly there is something really wrong. I live in a very small redneck town with 2 redneck cops that only patrol half the town. It’s like BONNEAU and BONNEAU Beach SC 29431 is subdivided and I feel this was a direct hit towatds me. THERE ARE MULTIPLE THINGS GOING ON ONE MAIN CONCERN IS MY LICENCE PLATE IS ON THE WEB AND I THOUGHT THIS WAS NEVER TO HAPOEN. I FOUND IT ON SHER WEB ITS A WEB SITE I FOUNF BUT THE Q IN THE PICTURE HAD A SPECIAL CHARACTER UNDER THE Q ONLY.
    SORRY FOR THROWING SO MUCH AT YOU BUT STRANGE THINGS ARE HAPOENING HERE
