GMC Pickup Sales Help Brand Reach Best October Sales Since 2007

After sales were counted and numbers were crunched, GMC’s retail sales for October showed a 6 percent increase over last year during the same period, making this the best October sales recorded since 2007. GMC pickup sales were a key player in that success.

Sales of GMC’s full-size Sierra totaled 18,564 units, which was an increase of 12 percent over October 2013 sales for the model. Meanwhile, the Sierra HD models continue to gain traction among customers looking for a truck that can handle heavier lifting without sacrificing comfort and style. HD models now account for 27 percent of Sierra models sold.

Of course, the GMC truck lineup recently added the all-new Canyon. The mid-size truck just completed its first full month of sales, and the assembly plant in Wentzville, Missouri is working hard to keep meeting customer demand.

“Given the unrivaled breadth of our pickup portfolio, it isn’t surprising to see GMC pickups gained popularity last month,” said Duncan Aldred, GMC’s U.S. vice president. “From Canyon to Sierra HD, along with the distinctive Denali and All-Terrain model lines, we’re able to offer customers a pickup that’s tailored to their needs.”

Sierra Denali Luxury

Never before have drivers seen luxury and power successfully integrated into a full-sized pickup—until now. The all-new 2015 Sierra Denali is the first of its kind, turning heads as it hits the markets. Here at Ewing Buick GMC, our jaws nearly hit the floor when we saw the new pickup.

According to GM, the 2015 Sierra Denali luxury is what really sets the pickup apart. Engineers have come up with a way to incorporate a high standard of comfort, a smooth ride, and innovative technology without sacrificing rugged capability.

The interior features Nuance leather-appointed seating, a heated steering wheel, and Bose audio system among other things. The Denali cabin is specially designed to remain quiet, with triple door seals and shear body mounts to reduce vibrations. An aerodynamic exterior also reduces wind-noise. The Denali also has IntelliLink, a color touch screen and MyMedia content.

Have no fear; the new model doesn’t sacrifice power. A 5.3-liter EcoTec V-8 generates an incredible 355 horsepower, and when paired with Duralife brakes and magnetic ride control, it’s nothing short of incredible.

The Elevation Edition will give you a body-colored grille surround, color-keyed door handles, mirror caps, side molding, and front and rear bumpers for a monochromatic look. While the official pictures show the truck in black, it will be available in other colors.

The car experts noted the Sierra’s tough and durable 6.6-liter Duramax Diesel engine, its towing capabilities, cruise control, and exhaust brake. The judges also liked the Sierra’s 8-inch screen for entertainment and navigation.

The Ram 3500 came in second place with its Cummins turbo-diesel engine and the Ford came in the third spot with its Powerstroke turbo-diesel engine. All trucks were put to multiple tests to see which one did the best under pressure. Some of the tests included hill climbs, dragway performance, braking capability, and max load trailering stability.

Recently, new protocols were put into play industry-wide to test the maximum tow capacity in real-world driving conditions. The tests were aimed to keep the playing field consistent among all auto manufacturers and to give consumers a clear definition of what they can really expect from their truck. Many manufacturers saw their tow capacity decrease while implementing SAE J2807. The Sierra 1500, however, did not see a decrease after implementation of the new tests. The 2WD double cab Sierra equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 engine maintains its 12,000-lb. max trailering configuration.

How was the Sierra able to keep its rating, while other trucks fell? The Sierra 1500 is equipped with the most powerful engine in its segment. It makes an outstanding 420-horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It is also available with a 9.76-inch rear axle and heavy-duty rear springs to help with hauling.

As you can see, the 2014 Sierra 1500 is ready to work! With other features like a CornerStep bumper and a center console big enough for work files, the Sierra 1500 can be the perfect mobile office. If you would like to know more about the 2014 Sierra, stop by Ewing Buick GMC!
