DIY just got easier.

Last updated 5 years ago

It's that time of the year where the DIY projects come out, and that "honey do list" never seems to get smaller. Luckily for you, GMC is making it easier than ever to knock all that work out. 

Where it's the Terrain or the Sierra, every GMC is capable of carrying the load. The Sierra 1500 is a half-ton pickup, the 2500HD is a quarter-ton pickup and the 3500HD is a full 1 ton pickup. The Sierra has various cab sizes and trims as well. The Acadia, GMC's midsize crossover has been updated for 2013 and DIY projects were a part of development from day one. The core of the Acadia's new design was centered around the ability to accommodate a 4-foot-wide peice of dry wall or plywood. Load height was even considered during the process. The load height was set at an average waste level to avoid strains and excess bending.

Not to mention GMC vehicles come equipped with SmartSlide. This is an industry exclusive feature in GM crossovers that allow one handed adjustment and access to the second and third row seats.

"Im at the home improvement store all the time and I still haven't come across anything that won't fit in my Acadia. I've slid the SmartSlide seats forward to fit small trees without tipping them over, and I've slid the second row rearward to put heavy pots securely on the floor. Smart slide is all about the conformability, you can even slide the second row back enough to recline the front passenger seat fully to carry a ladder." Said Sue Eckel, GMC Vehicle Chief Engineer. 

Eric Stromer hosts HGTV's "Over Your Head" and is a do-it-yourself expert. He is also a GMC driver and had this to say about his Sierra Hybrid: "I've been a contractor forever so I wouldn't even consider a vehicle that can't fit plywood and other materials. The crew cab is good for my kids, I can tow cement mixers and other equipment and with it being a hybrid, it offers that capability with a lower carbon footprint."
