GMC started in 1902, when Max Grabowski started Rapid Motor Vehicle Company. Rapid trucks were some of the earliest commercial trucks ever manufactured. Max and his brother Morris Grabowski, who was a businessman, initially built a single cylinder engine delivery car. This was a failure, but in 1902 they built a 15 horsepower engine with two cylinders. Unlike their previous car, this one was a success and they redid their company under the name “Rapid Motor Vehicle Company”. This company produced 75 vehicles that were sold over the span of a few years. Rapid Motor Vehicle Company was incorporated in 1904.By 1908, William C. Durant, the founder of the General Motor Company, had bought up many of Rapid’s shares.
1909 came and General Motor Company (GM) bought the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company and the Reliance Motor Company. Two years later, General Motor Company decided to merge both Reliance and Rapid in order to form the General Motors Truck Company. In 1912, New York’s Auto Show used the name ‘GMC Truck’ in 1912, and that was the first time the name was ever used. 1913 was a big year for General Motors Company. It was in this year the Rapid and Reliance trucks officially came to the GMC truck line, and it was the same year General Motors Company came out with their first mass produced truck. 22,000 of these trucks were sold that year.
General Motors Company decided to rename their business as General Motors Corporation in 1916. Partnering with the Chevrolet brothers, Durant had also started the Chevrolet auto company. Chevrolet auto company and Delco products joined General Motor Corporation in 1918. One year later, General Motors Corporation was joined by Fisher Body Company and Frigidaire. Then in 1996, ‘GMC Truck’ and the vehicles produced by the GMC Division of General Motors LLC were known as GMC, when the suffix ‘Truck’ was dropped from the name.
Since then, GM has grown to be one of the largest and most well known automakers in the world. Most of GM’s sales come from North America and the Middle East. In 2018, General Motors sold over 8.4 million cars, making them one of the top car brands of the year. In the past few years, classic Chevy truck parts have outsold GMC truck parts, which is another reason why Chevrolet is actually General Motors’s biggest brand. They have had a number of extraordinary vehicles/styles that have been groundbreaking for the automobile industry.
The Chevrolet pickup underwent a drastic change in 1955. Previously, all engines had been powered by six-cylinder engines, but now they were powered by a V-8 engine. Aside from the engine, the pickup truck also got a different new outside look. This new look was intended to look more like a “gentleman’s pickup”, rather than something you would find on a farm or a factory yard, Chevrolet said.
In 1973, Chevy came out with a new style of body for their trucks. This style was deemed the square body truck. This was one of the longest-running generations of pickup trucks that Chevy has produced. This style of pickup truck ran from 1973 to 1987, and are less rare than some of the other models, due to their lengthy manufacturing period. Mary T. Barra, the CEO of General Motors Corporation just recently announced that Chevy will be making a limited run of the square body truck. This excited many avid car lovers who had been hoping for a return of the style. Not only is Barra herself making history as the first CEO of an automobile company, she is also making history for being the first CEO to ever bring back the square body style. The newest model of Chevy trucks also include some features of the square body truck, including the grille back.
