To document the development and release of the first-ever all-electric truck, the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup, General Motors has released an exclusive documentary. This feature-length documentary follows the GM team as they developed, tested, and produced this revolutionary vehicle.
The 60-minute film first aired on March 27, on the History Channel. If you missed it, it is now available to stream through History on Hulu or History.com. You can also watch it on GMC’s YouTube channel.
“Our goal was to upend what an electric vehicle is capable of and push the boundaries from 100 years of vehicle development experience,” said Josh Tavel, executive chief engineer. “This documentary captures the soul of a team capable of incredible innovation and resilience. Their learnings are laying the foundation of vehicle development for decades to come.”
Sean King O’Grady directed the film with the help of the Detroit-based WTP Pictures and Hiatus production team. They joined the GM team on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to record testing in freezing temperatures. From there, they travelled to the scorching heat of Moab, Utah.
In the film, you will see behind-the-scenes views of GM’s testing facilities along with an in-depth look at the production process at the Hamtramck assembly plant in Detroit.

If you’re tall or have some tall family members, it can be challenging to find a ride that has the spacious cabin necessary to keep the whole crew comfortable on daily drives and weekend getaways. Kelley Blue Book’s Russ Heaps recently shared the publication’s roundup of best vehicles for tall people — and a few GM models made the list.
2021 GMC Sierra Crew
The 2021 GMC Sierra Crew Cab configuration ranked highly
with KBB editors. This hardworking truck delivers 43.03 inches of headroom and
44.53 inches of legroom for front passengers — and has approximately 8 inches
more legroom for backseat passengers than the Double Cab configuration. Plus,
with capable towing and payload ratings, the Sierra is especially suited for
rural families that work hard and play harder.
2021 GMC Canyon Crew
Need a truck that’s a bit more affordable and efficient and has
a slightly smaller build? Go with the 2021 GMC Canyon Crew Cab. It has
noteworthy headroom and legroom dimensions for front riders — 41.4 and 45
inches, respectively — while giving you modest towing and payload ratings to open
up more options when transporting your family and their gear.
2021 Buick Enclave
In search of a new SUV with a roomy cabin to accommodate?
KBB editors recommend the 2021 Buick Enclave. With 41 inches of front headroom
and 41.2 inches of front legroom, it’s plenty comfortable. Second- and
third-row seats deliver 38.9 inches and 33.5 inches of legroom, respectively,
so your long-legged older kids won’t feel cramped on family road trips either.
Experience the generous interior dimensions of the GMC Sierra, GMC Canyon, and Buick Enclave when you stop by Wilson Buick GMC in Stillwater, Oklahoma, to test-drive these models. We’ll help you find the right model that will keep you and your co-travelers comfortable and relaxed on all of your drives.
Most GMC vehicles are offered as a Denali or AT4 model, but what’s the difference? These trim levels offer distinct features that set them apart from each other as well as from other vehicles on the road. Take a look at a few of their highlights.
Named after the highest mountain peak in North America,
Denali models are all about elevating your experience with the latest luxuries
and premium features. They get uniquely styled exterior and interior design
elements, including a signature chrome grille, high-quality leather upholstery,
and lots of comfort-enhancing amenities like extra noise insulation and plush,
heated seats. If you look at the optional features offered on lower GMC trim
levels, you can usually count on those features being standard on the Denali
The AT4 trim is all about off-road adventures. Different
vehicles need different enhancements when venturing down the path less
traveled, but you can generally expect AT4 models to get protective skid
plates, a factory lift kit, large tires, and a spruced-up suspension system
capable of handling the bumpiest trails. For instance, the Yukon AT4 benefits
from the Air Ride Adaptive Suspension. Whatever the nameplate, you can count on
GMC AT4 models to handle their own when the tarmac runs out.
So there you have it. GMC Denali and AT4 models don’t quite compete against each other as much as they provide different benefits to different lifestyles. If you’re looking for a truck that feels at home on the dirt paths around the farm, you may prefer a GMC Sierra AT4. If you’re looking for an ultra-comfy family SUV, then consider the Yukon Denali. You can find both at Wilson Buick GMC in Stillwater, Oklahoma!
If you’re in the market for a used GMC, then you may already know that GMC makes for one of the best used car brands. But what vehicles in the automaker’s lineup make for the best used GMC models? Consider the GMC Acadia and Sierra 1500.
If you need a used vehicle for the family, there’s no better
pick than the GMC Acadia SUV. There’s a lot of reason to love older Acadia
models, such as the 2011-2014 models that have all earned a five-star overall
safety rating in government crash testing. The 2011-2013 models even
supplemented this with a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety. Thanks to the Denali trim, which was introduced in 2011 for the
Acadia, buying used doesn’t mean you have to miss out on premium features.
GMC Sierra 1500
As a hardworking pickup truck, the GMC Sierra 1500 is built from the ground up to be as dependable and reliable as possible, making it an excellent used purchase. That’s made even better by the fact that the Sierra 1500 ranks among the top vehicles in the country for resale value. If you sell the Sierra 1500 later on, you could get back a lot more of your hard-earned money than if you had gotten a used vehicle from a less reputable brand.
The J.D. Power 2020 U.S. Sales Satisfaction Index Study aims to measure how satisfied customers are with different automotive brands. Buick and GMC both shined in the 2020 study, which surveyed 35,816 new-vehicle buyers, for making the car buying process a more convenient one.
In the study, six factors came into play when determining which brands had the highest amount of customer satisfaction: the delivery process, the dealership personnel, establishing terms of the deal, the dealership facilities, the paperwork process, and the dealership website. The survey also looked at customers who rejected brands and took into account the salespeople, the negotiation process, the vehicle price, and both the facilities and inventory of the dealership.
GMC and Buick earned second and third place respectively in the SSI Study, cementing the brands as being worthwhile options when choosing your next vehicle. Out of a possible 1,000 points, GMC and Buick scored 804 and 803 points, comfortably surpassing the industry average of 784 points. These high scores show that when you shop for a vehicle from one of these brands, you’ll likely come away satisfied.
