Top 5 GMC Cars of the Year
GMC, a division of General Motors that mainly focuses on utility vehicles and trucks, offers a number of outstanding vehicles. This year, the company continues its 100-plus year history of offering reliable cars that can carry many passengers and cargo while providing outstanding comfort and the latest features. If you’re looking for a 2017 GMC, here are the top five vehicles of the year.
The Yukon and the longer Yukon XL are great options for anyone who needs a good amount of seating, the option to tow heavy machinery, and more. The Yukon seats up to eight, and it can tow up to 8,100 pounds. With an optional four-wheel drive, this SUV is the perfect off-roading vehicle for those who crave adventure. It boosts a 5.3 liter V-8 engine that puts out 355 horsepower. With several different trims, including the luxurious Denali, GMC gives you plenty of options. The Yukon may not get the best gas mileage around, but it’s definitely a good option if you need a workhorse of a vehicle.
The Terrain is one of GMC’s compact SUVs, and while its starting price may be a bit higher than some others in its class, it’s also a bit more luxurious and upscale. There are a number of different packages for the Terrain, so you can customize it to your liking. This SUV seats five and has a nice amount of storage space. It features a smooth V-6 engine that provides upwards of 300 horsepower in some models. GMC feels that the Terrain is a solid vehicle as it is, so they didn’t make any major changes to the 2017 model.
The Sierra 1500
If you’re looking for a truck instead of an SUV, the Sierra 1500 is a great option. With its V-8 engine that can provide 420 horsepower, you’ll find that this truck can haul just about anything. The cabin features some surprisingly luxurious features for a truck, especially if you go for some of the more upscale trim options. The front seats are quite roomy, and you can fit six passengers in the extended cab. The 2017 model has a higher towing capacity and features a few new assistance options.
The Arcadia is just as capable on the highway as it is off-road, making it a great option for families who occasionally like to head into the wilderness. It offers seating for up to seven, along with a nice amount of cargo storage. The infotainment system is compatible with Android Auto and with Apple CarPlay, plus it features 4G LTE connectivity. With the 2.5 liter V-4 or 3.6 liter V-6, you can choose the amount of power you go with. The Arcadia may not get the best gas mileage, but it’s not the worst, either.
The Canyon rounds out this list of the top five GMC vehicles. It’s another truck, but this one is classified as a compact truck with a short bed. The double cab provides seating for up to five, while the base model only seats two. You have a number of engine options to choose from, including the 308 horsepower top of the line model. The All-Terrain X off-road package is new for 2017, as in the Denali trim. An upgraded 7-inch touchscreen is new too, and makes the already-intuitive infotainment system even easier to use.
In addition to these exceptional five GMC vehicles, this automaker offers a host of cars, trucks, and SUVs to test drive. While these are the best of the bunch, you’re sure to find the right fit for your driving needs–just give GMC a try.
