Ad Agency Leo Burnett to Develop GMC’s Next Ad Campaign

GMC's Next Ad Campaign

2015 GMC Sierra HD Pickup

General Motors has big plans for its truck brand. GMC’s truck lineup has a ton to offer, but seems to be all-too-often overlooked by shoppers. That’s about to change with GMC’s next ad campaign, which is sure to catch the attention of pickup truck-shoppers nation-wide. GMC has partnered with ad agency Leo Burnett on a “big umbrella campaign” that will showcase GMC as a premium, refined truck brand.

The upcoming campaign will also feature individual lines using the same theme to highlight each vehicle’s high-end features and capabilities. Duncan Aldred, US vice president in charge of GMC and Buick. has commissioned famed ad agency Leo Burnett in an effort to help GMC begin to attract non-GM buyers and boost their growth.

“We’ve got to evolve that into something that builds the brand itself,” Aldred said to Automotive News during a media test drive of the 2015 GMC Canyon midsize pickup. “The hard bit is breaking through and getting people to recognize it.”

GMC is already seeing impressive success this year, as the brand’s sales rose 10% through September, which is the strongest performance of GM’s four brands. Much of that can be attributed to GMC’s high-end sub-brand, Denali, which accounted for 20% of GMC’s total sales last year.

Adding brand-new, engaging, and bold advertising will surely only help GMC in its quest to turn heads and establish itself as a brand that offers refined, quality pickup trucks.
