Most GMC vehicles are the same chassis, powertrain, and general body style of their Chevrolet counterparts, but are offered in a more luxurious, premium packaging with higher-end interior comforts and GMC-specific trim levels. Most notably, the luxury Denali trim is exclusive to GMC. Exceptions are the Terrain and Acadia crossovers, which share only chassis and drivetrain components with Chevrolet counterparts.
The GMC lineup includes pickup trucks such as the Sierra, which is available as a half-, three-quarter, and one-ton pickup truck, all three of which can be outfitted in the premium Denali trim. The line also includes crossovers and SUVs such as the Acadia, Terrain, and Yukon, which are also available in the Denali trim. The Savana family of vans are available as passenger or cargo variants as well.
The GMC brand and its vehicles have won many prestigious awards, most recently earning Top Safety Pick Plus from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The brand has also won Kelley Blue Book's 5-Year Cost to Own Award, the Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy Award, and the J.D. Power and Associates Highest Ranked Large Light Duty Pickup In Initial Quality award. Although the model variances available from GMC are small, the brand is the second-best-selling brand in GM's lineup after Chevrolet. It is also one of the most consistently profitable.
