5 Movies with GMC Cars as Stars

The GMC brand is known for its capable but sophisticated lineup of SUVs and pickups. At DeVoe Buick GMC, we love seeing our favorite GMC vehicles on the road, but we also love to catch them on the big screen. Here are five movies with GMC cars as their star.

movies with GMC

The Notebook (2004)

This classic romance film was one of the first chances crowds had to fall in love with the handsome Ryan Gosling, but we have to assume that his 1935 GMC QB truck was part of the charm.

The Bridges of Madison County (1995)

A slightly newer GMC truck plays a role in this romance film when Clint Eastwood’s character drives a 1960 GMC 1500.

Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem (2007)

Thanks to this movie, it has been proven that the 2005 GMC Yukon XL is the perfect vehicle to take when you’re heading out to defeat the Predators and the Aliens.

Joe (2013)

This serious drama makes room for the 1997 GMC C-15, which helps to drive the plot, telling a story of young Gary and his new father-figure Joe.

Transformers (2007)

The Transformers franchise takes the opportunity to showcase many different manufacturers. You’ll spot plenty of GMC cars in these movies, like the GMC Topkick C4500 which turns into the Autobot Ironhide. We’re waiting for GMC to release this transformative feature as a standard for us to try, but until then we’ll have to settle for binge-watching Michael Bay’s Transformers series.

New 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 Features

The 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 is here at last, and the new model comes with quite a new few features. From personal customization options, like paint color, to features that are commonly requested by drivers, this full-size pickup is designed to give customers more for their money. While GMC has added quite a few new features, the automaker has also removed some as well.

The 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 loses the Light Steel Gray Metallic, Iridium Metallic, and Mahogany Metallic colors. As a replacement, the full-size pickup sees the addition of Dark Slate Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic.

As for highly-requested GMC Sierra 1500 features, the truck sees the addition of capless fuel fill and Teen Driver mode with IntelliLink infotainment system to the list of standard features. Low Speed Mitigation Braking also makes its way onto the list. Tri-Mode Power Steps, 18-inch all-season blackwall tires, and a trailer brake controller (SLT Crew Cab Premium Plus Package) all join the list of available options.

GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition Debuts at Auto Show

Lately, General Motors has been churning out model after model of special- and limited-edition versions of the vehicles in its brands’ lineups. The latest to join the fray is the blacked-out GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition, which had its debuted at the recent New York International Auto Show.

Differences between the standard GMC Terrain and the Nightfall Edition include the addition of a gloss-black paint job and accents, such as a charcoal front grille with gloss-black surround, front and rear fascia accents, and outside mirrors—plus luggage rails painted to match. Additionally, the 18-inch aluminum wheels come with gloss-black spokes. The result is a compact SUV that’s been given an edgy, all-black makeover.

The announcement at the Terrain Nightfall Edition debut in NY stated that the package will only be available as an option on two trim levels, the Terrain SLE-2 and SLT models. No details regarding the pricing have yet been unveiled, but as of right now, the standard SLE-2 starts at $30,000, while the SLT is $32,000.

Pricing will be announced closer to the Terrain Nightfall Edition’s release this fall, when it joins the ranks of other special editions such as the Canyon Nightfall and Sierra All Terrain X.

Each year, Ward’s Auto chooses ten new and redesigned vehicles for its “10 Best Interiors” list, which honors the models with most innovative and impressive interiors based on a variety of criteria.

Ward’s Auto recently announced its choices for 2015, including the GMC Canyon SLT on the list. Additionally, the Canyon SLT was one of only two pick-up trucks that made the cut, right next to Ford’s latest F-150.

To be eligible for the list, a vehicle’s interior has to be entirely new, meaning there were about 40 vehicles available to choose from for this year’s list. The judges spent a careful 10 days with the cars, in order to make the right decision.
