nothing more than a marketing tool, and a blatant lie :imo but it works pretty good at conning consumers.Egrajeda said:I just dont really know what is it that they do different on GMC's that its Proffesional Grade Engineering?
Please note, Hovis:imo had an extremely bad experience with GMC and put up with stuff that nobody should ever have to. So he might have a slight bias towards them.hovisimo said:nothing more than a marketing tool, and a blatant lie :imo but it works pretty good at conning consumers.
i like the commercial where the car parts are falling into the field because the engineer is throwing ideas into the trash can. yeah, there goes your drivers side grab handle. and your functional sunvisors. they spend more marketing their garbage than they spend engineering it.
:think: Cause they are different vehicles and have different flaws and different features?danez71 said:I agree with most of whats said here but I have one big question..... real question guys and gals.
Why does Consumer Reports have DIFFERENT ratings for the Silverado and Sierra... Taho vs Yukon.... Suberban vs the yukon XL etc ?
Its not that they list the 2 names and have the same exact ratings.... they list both names and have different ratings!
Thats not marketing.....
So why is that?
skylerlt said:the difference is that GMC are supposedly a touch more luxurious on the bottom end, so they are a lil more expensive. but all in all, a fully loaded gmc sierra is the exact same thing as a fully loded silverado minus the looks
Sounds like :bs: to me .. why would GM let one division sue another division??endo said:Here's some "knowledge" I'll forward along...
"GMC is actually suing Chevy for stealing their ideas." (heard from GMC owner when I owned a Chevy 10 yrs ago)
"GMC gets first crack at truck design, and then Chevy has to redesign them to look different." (heard from GMC dealer in Lombard, IL in 1999 when I explained I wanted a '99 Sierra or Silverado and was equally happy with the aesthetics of each)
When asked to defend these statements, each of these individuals were very convinced that they were true. Frickin' idiots. :crazy:
