The oldest automobile companies have passed in their age a hundred years. The American market giant General Motors Company is no exception. The Indy Auto Man car lot in Indianapolis is a perfect place to get acquainted with the broad assortment of used GM trucks.
General Motors Company, in the hearts of Americans, is remembered for top quality trucks. It was GMC trucks that entered the history of the US, to a greater extent than SUVs. GM SUVs were the icing on the cake, not the most important, but a very nice addition to the company. In fact, for decades, the company managed to spur the development of its competitors, and partly because of this, the world saw the very pickup trucks that personify the American spirit of freedom.
Founded in 1908 by William S. Durant, GM was originally envisioned as the holding company for Buick. But already in 1909, Rapid Motor Vehicle bought the company, subsequently creating the General Motors Truck Company, and it was from it that the GMC Truck division appeared. As an independent manufacturer, GM truck announced itself in 1912, and until the beginning of the war, it produced large trucks, trying the pen.
The company put the first ½ ton model on the conveyor in 1936-1937, under the T-14 index. During the war years, the company successfully established itself by supplying equipment to the front line and retaining its potential and stepped into the market of small pickups immediately after the war with a certain degree of confidence.
GMC’s models have always been very similar to the Chevrolet pickups of the time, differing only in decorative elements and badges. By 1970, the design was almost identical. Modern GMC and Chevy trucks and SUVs are produced on the same base, and the choice is mostly a matter of visual preferences.
Trucks have always been a hallmark of GM. Pickups adopted safety margins and were famous for strong frames. Those who worked on GM cars noted the car’s cargo habits, despite all attempts to domesticate the pickup. In all-wheel-drive versions, a self-locking differential, for example, was installed from the factory, which hinted at the car’s readiness to work in the most difficult conditions. The working horse qualities are retained in modern work trucks from GM.
General Motors owns GMC, Chevrolet, Cadillac, and Buick. Hummer is considered a GMC sub-brand.
GM makes trucks, under Chevy and GMC brands, including the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Colorado, the GMC Sierra, and Canyon. Neither Cadillac nor Buick is in the truck business.
GM pickups can be seen in any form and style of customization, including dually and lifted trucks. The stylistic features of these vehicles allow you to be creative in the embodiment of any style. At our Indianapolis car lot, you can find exclusive upgraded models, as well as a good variety of standard trucks in various trims.
