GMC Company Description:
GMC, formerly known as GMC Truck, is a brand name for trucks, vans, and SUVs marketed in North America and the Middle East by General Motors. In 1901, Max Grabowski established a company called the "Rapid Motor Vehicle Company", which developed some of the earliest commercial trucks ever designed. The trucks utilized one-cylinder engines. In 1909, the company was purchased by General Motors to form the basis for the General Motors Truck Company, from which GMC Truck was derived. In January, 2007, GMC was GM's 2nd largest selling light vehicle division after Chevrolet. Today, GMC offers the same trucks available under the Chevrolet brand.
