 As Kelley Blue Book reports, GMC, the specialized subsidiary of GM, broke records in the fourth quarter of 2022.


Top 5 Most Considered Vehicles 

Research by Kelley Blue Book revealed that GMC ranked fifth in customer consideration for non-luxury vehicles for the first time in its history. According to Cox Automotive, the F-150 ranks first; then it goes to the Chevy Silverado 1500 in second place. In third place was the Honda CR-V, followed by the Dodge Durango in fourth. The GMC Sierra 1500 is part of the top picks for American consumers. 


The F-150 is built with a fully boxed high-strength steel frame and a military-grade aluminum alloy body. It is a truck that can hold up whatever you throw into it. Then you have the Chevy Silverado 1500, which has AEV hot-stamped boron steel skid plates, a 6.2L V8 engine with 10-speed automatic transmission, and AEV-stamped steel front and rear bumpers. This truck is ready for all your off-road adventures. The Honda CR-V has five seats with legroom space, so everyone is comfortable; it also has a one-touch power moonroof with a tilt feature and a reclining fold-down 60/40 split rear seatback. The Honda CR-V has the space and comfort to make any cross-country adventure memorable. 

The Dodge Durango holds up to seven people with their three-row SUV, with 85.1 cubic feet of maximum cargo space that can hold all your bulky cargo. It also has trailer sway control and available all-wheel drive. The Dodge Durango is a muscle and looks with its power and sleek design. The GMC Sierra 1500 is ready for any task you are looking to accomplish with its best-in-class diesel horsepower and torque, over 40 inches diagonal of combined driver-focused digital displays. It contains more cargo bed volume than any competitor. 


Looking specifically at the pickup segment, the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 take the top two spots in vehicle reviews. The Toyota Tacoma is third, the GMC Sierra 1500 is fourth, and the Ford Super Duty comes third. Fifth and Ford Super Duty in fifth. The Chevy Silverado HD series came in sixth. In its recent Q4 2022 Brand Watches report, Kelley Blue Book outlined consumer buying models across various categories and segments.


It should be noted that overall consideration for the GMC brand has reached an all-time high among non-luxury brands. GMC has benefited from an overall increase in luxury vehicle purchases in the fourth quarter, as many of GMC’s products are priced at the premium level and purchased by some luxury buyers. Truck purchases also increased significantly in Q4, benefiting the truck-only brand again, and interest in Hummer products continued to grow, driving additional buying traffic at GMC. GMC was also fueled by interest in the Sierra 1500 full-size pickup truck, the fourth most purchased truck of any size.
