GMC SUVs are perfect for large families, especially during the school year. With added cargo space, better connectivity, and advanced safety systems, going back-to-school is a breeze as long as you’re behind the wheel of a GMC.
Believe it or not, 6-10 school children participate in after-school extracurricular activities, says GMC. With that in mind, GMC crossover and SUV design is more equipped than ever to make driving with kids easier. For example, models like the Acadia, Terrain, and Yukon have all added space for cargo and passengers.
“Everything starts all at once after Labor Day,” says Whitney Quijada, a mother from Arizona and owner of a GMC Acadia. “I am a teacher and I have two kids and they’re both involved in three activities. We’re always on the go. We have the captain’s chairs in the second row. Even if we are carpooling to dance or tee-ball practice, it’s so convenient to get the kids in the back and buckled up.”
Keeping kids entertained is also important. New models come available with features like IntelliLink, OnStar 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi, and even Siri Eyes Free. Plus, with safety features like Blind Zone Alert, Cross Traffic Alert, Park Assist, and more, you always have peace of mind.
2014 turned out to be a great year for the GMC brand. The Sierra had its best sales year since 2005! The Yukon followed with its best sales year since 2007 selling over 71,000 units. The Terrain had its best sales year ever and the Acadia won Edmunds.com’s Most Popular Large Crossover SUV of 2014. Finally the Canyon won Autoweek Magazine’s Best of the Best Truck for 2015!
The ultra-plush Denali lineup also saw sales gains in 2014. More than 21% of GMC sales to individual customers were vehicles from the Denali lineup. More than half of the year’s Yukon retail sales were Denalis and 35% of Sierra HD sales were Denalis. As you can see, the Denali lineup adds a little something extra to GMC’s already impressive lineup.
As you can see, GMC offers a pretty impressive lineup of trucks, CUVs, and SUVs. The brand hopes to continue the positive momentum into 2015! “In 2014 we had the freshest portfolio of GMC products on our lots including a full range of pickups, with the all-new Canyon. The new Yukon lineup has also driven high consumer interest to our store with its bold styling, especially the Yukon Denali,” said Chief Operating Officer at Motor City Buick GMC, John Pitre.

For the first time since the recession, SUVs are regaining some of the momentum it lost to its crossover brethren and finding newfound popularity in the car market. If you’re talking about a resurgence in the full-size SUV segment, you must first look at the offerings of General Motors, whose 2015 model year lineup includes new and improved iterations of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Cadillac Escalade.
GM announced that it pulled in a third-quarter net income of $1.4 billion, thanks in large part to the success of its SUVs and pickup trucks.
“The new trucks and SUVs are more profitable than the ones they replaced. That certainly helps from a profit perspective,” said GM Chief Financial Officer Chuck Stevens.
The 2014-2015 GMC Yukon has been a big part of GM’s success through the first nine months of 2014: to date, GMC has delivered 52,612 models between the Yukon and the Yukon XL. This amounts to a year-to-date increase of 62.3% in the United States.
