Introductory Blog

Welcome to the (unofficial) General Motors Truck Blog!

As automotive marques and models continue to have virtual publications dedicated to them, it is fitting to do so for GM Trucks.

Admittedly, trucks have been a vital portion of the company. GMC is the longest-running division within General Motors as of date. The Truck Product Center in Pontiac, MI is one of GM's factories designated as a 'historical landmark'.

And their importance is ever-so crucial in today's cutthroat automotive market. It's no secret that GM's sales have been boosted with product like the Suburban, Tahoe, Trailblazer, Hummer, etc. And looking forward, the upcoming GMT 900 platform is looked at as a savior - not just for GM, but the suppliers working upon it, as well.

Many websites have attempted to focus on one particular GM Truck brand, era, or model. While that does help, considering the stoic and massive history of these products, GMTBlog is attempting to cover all products: of all brands, all eras, all classifications. Don't be surprised to read a blog about the first Rapid chain drive trucks, followed by one on the upcoming TrailBlazer SS, which is adjacent to a post regarding the ubiquitous front-wheel-drive GMC Motorhomes of the '70s.

This is intended to be an intellectual, friendly resource of information on these trucks. And as such, I welcome you here, and wish you a pleasant visit - and many more to come.

Try a forum that's related to 'solely' off-roading - as this blog isn't.

GM-Trucks.com may help you.
