GMC May Go Rogue With a New Platform
The GMC brand under General Motors’ (NYSE:GM) four-brand umbrella has contributed little more than gussied-up, re-skinned versions of existing Chevrolet models with some added perks and a different badge. However, that might be set to change if some recent speculation from the rumor mill has any weight.
Mark Reuss, GM’s global product chief, said the company is working on “at least one GMC product that would not share its underpinnings with a Chevy,” Automotive News reports. “Oh yes, you will,” Reuss said at the debut of the new GMC Canyon at the North American International Auto Show last week.
Aside from that, he gave no further indication as far as what kind of vehicle it would be, where in the development process it is, or when anyone could expect its arrival.
“The health of GMC is astonishingly good from a consideration standpoint,” Reuss told Automotive News, noting that GMC’s strong price point and its appeal to non-General Motors consumers are further reasons to invest more of GM’s attention, money, and energy into the brand.
