Pro Grade Protection Comes to 2013 Sierra Owners

New maintenance program key component of industry’s best pickup coverage

DETROIT – GMC pickups are engineered to last, and now, 2013 Sierra 1500 ½-ton pickup truck owners will receive a higher level of coverage that includes standard scheduled maintenance. It’s known as Pro Grade Protection.

Pro Grade Protection covers standard scheduled maintenance costs for two years or 24,000 miles – whichever comes first – for all 2013 GMC Sierra 1500s sold between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, 2013.

Combined with the Sierra 1500’s five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and three-year/36,000-mile bumper to bumper warranty – whichever comes first – Pro Grade Protection delivers the best pickup coverage in the industry.

Coverage is included in the price of the vehicle. Pro Grade Protection includes regularly scheduled oil changes, oil filter replacements, tire rotations and multi-point vehicle inspections. Customers will be eligible whether they lease or purchase and the coverage is completely transferable between owners. See full details of the program here.

 “Pickup owners tend to keep their vehicles longer than most, so it’s essential that GMC holds the Sierra to the highest standards possible,” said Brian Sweeney, vice president of GMC Sales and Service. “We want potential customers to know that our Professional Grade trucks come with class-leading coverage and an engaged dealership service experience.”


Retail Sierra 1500 sales were up 41 percent year-over-year in January, while total sales were up 39 percent. Sales all Sierra models – including 2500HD ¾-ton and 3500HD 1-ton were up 38 percent retail and 35 percent total, enough growth for Sierra’s best January since 2008.

”A branded program like Pro Grade Protection is going to be outstanding for our dealer network,” said Mike Bowsher, co-chairman of the national dealer council for Buick & GMC. “It not only allows owners to experience our customer-focused service departments, but gives them the opportunity to see the newest vehicles in our showrooms. There’s no better retention tool for us than this.”

GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, and is one of the industry's healthiest brands. Innovation and engineering excellence is built into all GMC vehicles and the brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. The 2014 Sierra half-ton pickup boasts all-new powertrains and design, and the Sierra Heavy Duty pickups are the most capable and powerful trucks ever built by GMC. Every retail GMC model, including Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs, is now available in Denali luxury trim. Details on all GMC models are available at, on Twitter at @thisisgmc or at

GMC Heading to the Big Easy for the Big Game

Brand’s newest vehicles part of an engaging Super Bowl XLVII activation

DETROIT – GMC will have more than 450 vehicles on display and driving around New Orleans during its activities throughout Super Bowl XLVII Week. 

They include:

Never Say Never Moment of the Year
By voting at, football fans have had the opportunity to help decide the “2012 GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year” from five finalists selected earlier this month. The winner will be announced during the second annual “NFL Honors” awards show on CBS the night of Feb. 2.
This year’s finalists include wide receiver Torrey Smith and Victor Cruz, along with quarterbacks Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and Kirk Cousins.

“Like our owners and engineers do every day, the five finalists demonstrated a ‘Never Say Never’ attitude that helped their teams win,” said Craig Bierley, GMC Advertising and Sales Promotion director. “All five have proven they are equally deserving, but only one can be crowned this year’s top performer.”

Fans who vote for their favorite performance will also be eligible to win a new 2013 GMC vehicle of their choosing.

NFL Experience
GMC will be the presenting sponsor of the 21st edition of NFL Experience, pro football’s interactive theme park, taking place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center from Wednesday, Jan. 30- Sunday, Feb. 3. The NFL Experience features activities for football fans of all ages and appearances by more than 100 current and former NFL players.

Football legends Barry Sanders, Jim Brown and Jerry Rice will be among the athletes meeting and greeting fans at the GMC display area.

Fresh off its first public appearance at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra will show its bold new design in an “Auto Show” space constructed within the convention center.

Also included is an interactive display that takes a series of photos of fans catching a pass in front of a stadium backdrop that can be posted to social networks like Facebook or Twitter.

Additionally, attendees will have an opportunity to create a pre-game video segment with announcer Mike Tirico and win prizes including autographs and signed memorabilia.

On Sunday, Feb.3, GMC will be the presenting sponsor of the Game Day Fan Plaza, which will provide fans with additional opportunities to meet players and experience the brand’s newest vehicles.

GMC also had a presence at last weekend’s NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii. The brand provided transportation for approximately 2,000 children of parents in the military to attend open practice and 500 tickets to the game to the U.S. Pacific Command for wounded warriors. Pro Bowl MVP Kyle Rudolph will also be given a GMC of his choosing for his game-changing performance.

GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, and is one of the industry's healthiest brands. Innovation and engineering excellence is built into all GMC vehicles and the brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover.  GMC is the only manufacturer to offer three full-size hybrid trucks with the Yukon, Yukon Denali SUVs and the Sierra pickup. The Sierra Heavy Duty pickups are the most capable and powerful trucks in the market. Details on all GMC models are available at, on Twitter at @thisisgmc or at
