    I kinda meant right now, or through the last decade leading up to right now.






    ....but if you know, what's the history between the two?

    That's absolutely pathetic. No wonder GM struggles so much as a vehicle company.

    iirc gmc trucks was for higher class white collar executive types, where chevy trucks were for the lower class blue collar types.

    GMC is more expensive for some reason.

    I think GMC's have more options for leather and other 'comfort' options...

    I thought that might be the case, but these "executives" now totally skip the GMC thing now that Cadillac is building the high class trucks.

    Thats right. But other than that and a few options, they are pretty much the same.

    It's because for the most part... they build really shitty cars. There are some obvious exceptions, however.

    i know there was minor trim differences between my 76 gmc(being the better of the 2) and and 76 chevy... also remember caddy's just recently came in truck form.

    Not exactly, but Chevy/GMC trucks are not junk.

    I hate to say it, but GM's trucks get shit on by Japanese imports these days. If it weren't for fleet sales I seriously doubt GM would sell nearly as many trucks as they do.

    It shouldn't be this way.

    ....except for the ones that were designed in other countries, aside from the Corvette and *maybe* the Cobalt (it hasn't had a chance to prove itself yet).

    I think it has more to do with having 3 of the same car with slightly different body panels.
