Takes steep grades in stride! A GMC with 4-wheel drive goes right up a 60% grade or through muddy farm fields -fully loaded! Switches quickly to conventional 2-wheel drive for highway travel. GMC pickups are in the same price range as other makes, yet you're many dollars ahead in standard equipment alone!
