General Motors is now the largest conglomerate in the world of automobile manufacturing that was founded in 1908. Over the years of their existence, this company has acquired various car brands serving as a medium for marketing different types of cars for the market. Some of the brands that are included in their list are Cadillac, Buick, GMC, GM Daewoo, Holden, Hammer and a lot more. Aside from that GM is also collaborating with other large companies for perfecting a technology that will help in developing more advanced and streamlined vehicles for the market.
In terms of trucks, vans and SUVs, GM's division that will stand out is GMC. This brand is very renowned in North America and the Middle East, since it is their major market. Some of GMC's models that have made a great impact to the market are the sprint, Sonoma, Safari, Vandura and many others. Not all GMC models made it well in the market and one that only had moderate exposure is the GMC R1500.
The GMC R1500 is a pickup truck bearing the basic features like the open rear cargo area and the separate enclosed cabin for the driver and passengers. This truck bears moderate looks but with a big cargo space that almost any size of cargo could fit in. The 1987 edition of this vehicle was produced in two body styles — 2-door regular cab and 4-door utility with 5.0L V 8; 5.7L V 8; 6.2L V 8; 4.3L V 6 engines available as options. Several transmission systems were also provided by the manufacturer including the 3 and 4 speed automatic as well as the 3, 4 and 5-speed manual. Any of these options will be good for managing the rear-wheel drive system which the truck is built with.
In 1990 and 1991, some refinements were done to the truck making it more efficient on the road. GMC also trimmed down on the options they provided for the previous editions of the GMC R1500. During these years, it was solely made available in the 4-door utility trim and in the 4-speed manual and automatic transmission. Furthermore, it operates using the standard 5.7L V8 engine and the optional 6.2L V8 engine. Regarding the driving system, it is still a rear-wheel drive.
