The Meaning Behind GMC’s Vehicle Names

GMC Vehicle Name Meanings

Have you ever wondered where your favorite vehicles get their names from? It’s not a haphazard process. The vehicles at George Gee Buick GMC all have their name for a reason. Read on to discover how GMC’s vehicle names are chosen.

Terrain

A terrain is any stretch of land, no matter what its features may be. The GMC Terrain, though small, is ready to tackle any terrain with ease.

Acadia

Before Acadia was associated with a GMC SUV, it was recognized as the name of a territory in Canada. The winters in that area are rough—the kind that only something as capable as the GMC Acadia could handle.

Yukon

Like Acadia, Yukon is a territory in Canada. Yukon borders Alaska, so it’s no surprise that its winters are equally cruel. The GMC Yukon is built to handle weather like the tough winters in Yukon itself.

Canyon

The GMC Canyon is a capable mid-size truck, named after some of the rugged landscape features that it’s fit to explore.

Sierra

Since a Sierra is defined as a mountain chain, it makes sense that GMC’s capable, full-size truck would be named after such a rugged terrain.

Denali

This title continues with GMC’s tradition of naming its vehicles after geographical features. Denali is the highest peak in North America. If you want the highest luxury possible, you choose the GMC Denali trim.
