GMC Truck division actually designs the trucks. A Chevrolet plant builds them.
I used to work for GM.
Both trucks are built in the same plant and other than cosmetics are the EXACT SAME FRICKING TRUCK!
Chevy was designed and advertised as the workingman's truck.
GMC was designed and advertised as the gentleman's truck.
GM was just trying to attract both consumer segments.
I too can relate many instances of trucks arriving at dealerships with CHEVY badging on one side and GMC on the other.
If CR found a difference in reliability it was in the owners "perception."
Not statistically verifiable by any means.
