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.

If you went all-out when you bought your GMC truck and upgraded it with a lift kit, odds are you’re no stranger to vehicle modifications. To bring your lifted model to the height of capability and fun, there are tons of accessories you can buy right here at Wilson Buick GMC in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Here are the add-ons we recommend most.
A Drop Hitch
If you plan to use your lifted GMC truck to pull a boat or camper, you’re going to need a drop hitch. This helpful accessory extends the hitch down to match the height of the trailer, so everything stays on the same level.
Getting in to or out of a massive truck like the GMC Sierra HD can be tricky under normal circumstances, and adding a lift kit only makes it more of a climb. Adding side steps or a running board gives you easy access to the cabin, which is particularly helpful for young passengers.
A Cylinder Assist Steering Kit
The gargantuan tires on lifted trucks can make turning feel less responsive, which is a problem for a vehicle that’s meant to be fun to drive. A cylinder-assist steering kit can mitigate this issue by optimizing your engine’s torque to compensate.
To learn more about helpful accessories for lifted trucks — and to have them installed by a certified expert — don’t hesitate to contact us at Wilson Buick GMC.
