General Motors and GMC History

If you would like to know more about the history of GMC as it relates to GM, read the timeline below:

  • Rapid Motor Company was founded by Max Grabowsky in 1902. He is famous for developing some of the very first pickup trucks in the world.
  • Seven years later, in 1909, GM bought Rapid Motor Company, making way for the General Motors Truck Company (GMC).
  • In 1912, GMC debuted its first mass-produced trucks, selling over 22,000 models.
  • During WWII, GMC became a major provider of trucks to the U.S. Military, while simultaneously manufacturing over 600,000 trucks for civilian use.

Have you noticed resemblances between Chevy and GMC pickup trucks? They look similar because they’re manufactured in the same plants and use the same parts, so it shouldn’t surprise you that they share identical engine options. However, their trim levels and interiors are quite different. GMC models often appeal to those Cottage Grove drivers who prefer a more luxurious cabin.
