The bowtie provides a superior drag coefficient. It's enough to shave a tenth off your quarter mile time. But I bought a Chevy mainly because there is only one dealer here in Anchorage that will do warranty work on a GMC. Most GMC dealers will do both, but a Chevy only dealer will not handle GMC. Other than that I know that the trim packages vary somewhat. And I have heard it claimed that GMCs tend to hold value a little better. --SS

They are built in the same plant, on the same Asse. line at the exact same time. The only diffs. are Bumper, Front end trim, Fenders, Hood, tail lights, side moldings, And badging.


Both are the best trucks on the planet! (Of course this is just one mans "Humble" opinion)

The GMC's come with more "standard options" than the Chevy's.

GM selects the highest quality parts and builds the GMC trucks. The Bowtie trucks are made with whats left over....



Seriously, GMC and Chevrolet are the best trucks on the planet.

And I believe the MSRP is usually higher than Chevy because of the "more standard options".

The base price is usually quite a bit higher but when you price two identical trucks its usually within a couple hundred dollars. My truck was about $200 more than the Chevy. My dealer sells both and built them up both ways for me.

As another forum member said,


"the Chevy Looks Like an Angry Chinaman coming down the street."
I chuckle every time I see a Bowtie, but other than that difference, and some base options, the trucks are the same. the Best in the World!

I hope you were kidding when you said General Motors Of Canada, because as we all know it is General Motors Corporation, and a around here a chevy only dealer will service any GM car or truck, they all get paid by GM so they will do the work.

. But I forgive him. He at least has good taste in trucks.

Actually to tell the truth GMC stands for neither and really stands for:


General Motors Truck Company (later known as GMC) is organized on July 22, 1911, to handle sales of GM's Rapid and Reliance products.


From http://www.gm.com/company/corp_info/history/gmhis1910.html


one of the first GMC's... Boy have we come a long way!!!


Wealth of useless knowledge!

I think chevys come with a full-floating rear axle and the gmc comes with a semi- floating rear axle as far as 2500hd are concerned.

Everyone is wrong.

Plus GMCs get the higher HP Dmax motors and chevy gets the runts



Can't wait to get back in a GMC.
