The 2014 GMC Lineup
We Look At The Big Year For 2014 GMC And Skip 2013
GMC is supposed to be a professional grade auto manufacturer that runs deep like a rock. As we are seeing for 2013 GMC is simply throwing out some fresh fascias on their crossover vehicles such as the 2013 GMC Acadia and Acadia Denali as well as the 2013 GMC Terrain and Terrain Denali. These CUV’s are trying to be more competitive in the marketplace and in my personal opinion I think the 2013 GMC Acadia certainly looks better than that suppository shaped Acadia from the previous years. GMC designers give it a more masculine front fascia as they have given the Acadia more of a truck like grille with swoop back headlights giving it much more modern look and less testosterone tampering. As for the 2013 GMC Terrain I guess the designers felt that if they threw enough chrome on this vehicle it would act as a lure and attract all ethnicities. The 2013 GMC Granite was the vehicle I was somewhat interested to see how it would turn out, but it ended up getting slaughtered before it made it to production. The 2013 and 2014 CNG Sierra 2500HD has debuted but at an extra $11,000; yes let me repeat that $11,000 for the compressed natural gas option means that individuals will just simply by a second smaller truck to fit in the bed of their Sierra therefore making more sense than paying $11,000 for this option. So we will more than likely see poor sales coming from all of GMC, well until we look at 2014 GMC.
2014 GMC Sierra – Time to Shine
2014 seems to be a whole different story for GMC as they will be introducing the big kids and maybe a small too. As January 2013 approaches we will see GMC getting ready their redesigned 2014 GMC Sierra and 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. Though not all as known it looks as though GMC will be offering a 301 hp 3.6L V-6 base engine connected to an eight speed automatic transmission. They will also offer the E-assist setup in order to boost MPG’s and will also see a direct injected V-8 engine and should deliver over 400 hp. It will be interesting to see if GMC and Chevy try and run a twin Turbo setup like the F-150 Ecoboost. Word is that GMC still plans to have an all terrain variant of the Sierra to compete with Ford’s super popular Raptor.
2014 GMC Yukon Denali
Word is that the 2014 GMC Yukon and Yukon Denali are going to be sharing a lot of similarities with the GMC Sierra is for us front fascia as well as powertrain options. Some insiders have remarked that the Yukon lineup will try and differ as much as possible from the 2014 Tahoe and 2014 Suburban. So we should see a lot more efficiency coming out of these GMC 2014 full-size vehicles. As we find out more information will be sure to post it in this article and if you have any information for free to share with us.
