2012 GMC Sierra 2500 HD

-- A group of GMC vehicles, including Savanas to Terrains, helped transport a U.S. quadriplegic rugby team, the Texas Stampede, and its equipment to and from workouts and scrimmages in Texas;

-- Sierras, Canyons and Yukons to help conservationists maintain the  American Wild Horse Sanctuary at Return to Freedom Ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif., by supporting daily ranch activities, as well as transporting materials.

“Hauling materials to build a 30-ton 17th century historic yacht is not for the lightweights. GMC vehicles are heavy duty, but handle like a Sunday drive in the park,” said Don Rittner, president of The Onrust Project. “When we had to move a ton of 400-year-old wood from the boat shed to the warehouse, the GMC Sierra made it seem like we were hauling toothpicks.” 

The new GMC catalog also is the first to have digital interactive and social media components. There are embedded quick-response codes that allow smartphone users to access a custom mobile site with exclusive video about the vehicles and these community projects, and link to the GMC Facebook Community Projects tab enabling fans to learn more.

“GMC vehicles are helping us connect people to high-quality local food, increase market access for small farmers, and promote cost-effective water conservation measures in agriculture,” said Jacob Leech, acting executive director, Geraldson Community Farm.

GMC also is issuing a version of the project’s mobile site for those with camera-enabled tablets such as the Apple iPad 2.

“The way consumers connect with brands and research their next vehicle purchases is different today than it was just a couple of years ago,” said John Gasloli, GMC advertising and sales promotion manager. “The 2012 catalog provides customers with a multimedia format, fully integrating photography and video, print and social media.”
