DETROIT – GMC was named Highest Satisfaction Popular Brand and the Sierra and Acadia took top honors in the light-duty pickup and large crossover SUV categories in AutoPacific’s 18th annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.
“Vehicles that score highest in the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards are delivering value and satisfaction across a wide range of attributes,” said George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. “The winners perform well in 50 separate categories that objectively measure the ownership experience.”
The vehicle satisfaction awards measure owner satisfaction in areas ranging from interior comfort and convenience to fuel economy and performance. The awards are based on the firm’s survey of more than 92,000 vehicle owners.
For the 2014 model year, there are 274 models and 32 brands from which to choose a new vehicle.
“GMC puts the customer at the center of all we do,” said Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president of Buick and GMC. “We are pleased to receive this third-party validation from AutoPacific.”

DETROIT – The GMC Yukon (tie) and Terrain rank highest in their segments in the 2014 J.D. Power Initial Quality StudySM, based on results announced today. Sierra HD ranked second in the Large Heavy-Duty Pickup segment.
Earlier this year, the GMC Yukon was also ranked highest in segment in the 2014 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study. In that study, J.D. Power used information gathered from owners of 3-year-old, or 2011 model year vehicles, to rank overall dependability.
“We are committed to the customer experience in everything we do at GMC, from the first visit to the dealership, to the drive home, or 10 years down the road,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick and GMC. “This study demonstrates we are following through on our commitment to quality and to our consumers.”
The 2014 IQS is based on responses from more than 86,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2014 model year vehicles surveyed at 90 days of ownership. The study includes a 233-question survey designed to provide manufacturers with information they can use to quickly identify problems and drive improvement.
GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, with innovation and engineering excellence built into all GMC vehicles. The brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. GMC’s highest-volume vehicle, the Sierra pickup, is the most powerful light duty pickup on the market, and the first full-size pickup to receive the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.

Tours of the new facility will take place immediately after the ribbon cutting showcasing the latest in General Motors branded showroom architecture, indoor delivery area, dealership support offices, customer lounge, heated service drive, full stocked parts and accessories department and the state of the art Service Center.
“What we have in the new service department is pretty much tech talk, “stated Service Director Don Volk, “but bottom line – it means diagnosing, repairing and maintaining our customers vehicles in the most time and cost efficient manner possible.”
“Montana IS truck country and General Motors has been pleased with our representation of the GMC and Cadillac lines,” added Mr. Zabawa, “They are not only supporting us financially in this expansion but have also pledged additional inventory in recognition of Billings as a major regional automotive shopping hub.”
With the continued expansion of Billings’ west side, the new Rimrock GMC Cadillac dealership will be in the heart of that growth directly across from Shiloh Crossing and the new Scheel’s destination store – as well as being located on the west end entry point to King Avenue’s regionally renown “Auto Row”.
“And we will be “GREEN”, continued Zabawa. “Our outside lighting alone is the talk of the industry right now. More light. Less environmental impact.”
GMC was the first franchise the Rimrock Auto Group acquired 20 years ago. They had been in the same building for 2 decades at 2540 Phyllis separated from their service department half a block away. “We told our architects that the sales and service environments for modern dealerships now need to be integrated. Customers like to be more involved in the service process as well as being in touch with evolving automotive technology. “added Mr. Soares, “Our new facility now showcases the future of automobile retailing. GMC’s professional grade brand identity and Cadillac’s luxury identity are instantly recognizable in the design. We also will be recognizing the local architects and local builders and suppliers who had a hand in this amazing new dealership.”
The Grand Opening will continue the month of March featuring BBQs, Grand Prize Giveaways and an integrated tie-in benefiting ZooMontana.
