Power. Capability. And more control. Three worthy attributes found in every new GMC truck. Each one boasts new and significantly stronger frames, upgraded front and rear suspensions and braking systems, and more robust steering components.
Tough outside, tough inside
If you're going to give a truck the kind of power found in every GMC, you need to make sure it's built strong enough to handle it. That's why every 2011 GMC truck is built around a segment-exclusive all-new high-strength steel frame, with fully-boxed rails front-to-rear. Compared with our 2010 models, the bending and beaming stiffness of the new steel frame is increased 92 percent and 20 percent, respectively.
And that's not all. Vibration in the cab has been reduced through a larger engine, transmission mounts and a stiffer front frame section.
Comfortably in control
The road offers many challenges. GMC helps you handle them while enjoying complete comfort behind the wheel. StabiliTrak® electronic stability control keeps your rear where it belongs: firmly on the road. By automatically adjusting your rear wheels to your steering input, you get a smoother, safer ride. The asymmetrical leaf spring rear suspension design also improves stability and traction with reduced axle hop when you accelerate. Because when you're carrying a heavy load, control is not optional.
Four-wheel drive is also available on GMC trucks, to help you climb to new heights. It's easy to shift on the fly, too, with an automatic connect/disconnect mechanism in the front axle that lets you stay comfortably in your cabin instead of going out in the snow or mud to manually lock up your front hubs.
