2012 Chevrolet Truck and 2012 GMC Truck Buying Guide
All About the GM Trucks
General Motors has been turning out pickup trucks for more than 70 years. GM bought Chevrolet in 1918 and raced down a road that would replace horse-drawn wagons with engine-driven horsepower right after World War I.
Following some tough financial years that included a government takeover and shaky customer confidence, GM has come out fighting in recent months, including an aggressive push into the hybrid market, with its Chevy Volt electric plug-in and hybrid versions of some of its most red-blooded pickup models. Not to mention a fiercely debated commercial at the Super Bowl that featured Chevy Silverado besting a Ford F-150 in a post-apocalyptic showdown.
In other words, GM seems to have straightened its Chevy bow-tie badging, polished GMC’s professional-grade image and broadened its lineup to appeal to a new generation of buyers.
