Marcey Kewish, GMC Product Development Engineer on Chassis Control, is proud to have grow up in the Michigan Automotive Industry with a mechanic father who worked in a machine shop. After Marcey graduated from the University of Michigan she already knew she wanted to carry on the tradition and work in the automotive industry. Currently she is going back to school to get her masters and has to balance work life, personal life, and school life which exhibits the qualities of what it takes to be Professional Grade. This drive for achievement carries over in her work at GMC. She is proud to be responsible for the "button on the dashboard with the squiggly lines". This button, for the Stabilitrak system, she develops for full size heavy duty trucks and vans. At the GM Proving Grounds she attempts to replicate driving situations that require Stabilitrak, such as a truck and trailer going into a jackknife, similar to a guy who would be hauling a fifth wheel camper on vacation. Her focus on achieving great things contributes to GMC's dedication to build the world's best vehicles.

Learn about the Stabilitrak electronic stability control system standard in
every 2014 GMC Sierra truck.
For more information, visit: http://spr.ly/2014Sierra
Every all-new 2014 GMC Sierra comes standard with the Stabilitrak
electronic stability control system. With the sure-footed handling of
available four wheel drive, Sierra is engineered to help keep you
confidently in control.
During sudden maneuvers, a network of vehicle sensors respond to your
steering and braking commands to help intelligently manage braking and
StabiliTrak sends brake pressure to individual wheels and automatically
adjusts engine speed to help the vehicle track with steering commands and
to help reduce the risk of a rollover.
When driving conditions demand extra rear torque, Sierra's four wheel drive
delivers what's needed to help keep you securely on the road.
Additionally, Sierra's standard Trailer Sway Control offers confidence even
while trailering under full load. These technologies work together to keep
your vehicle and trailer on their intended path.

Trailer Sway Control Demo: 2013 Terrain Denali SUV
Trailer Sway Control is an integral part of Stabilitrak electronic
stability control and is standard on all GMC trucks, SUVs and Crossovers.
Under intense conditions, Trailer Sway Control automatically activates the
vehicle's brakes to dampen trailer sway, and reduces engine torque to slow
the vehicle to a safer speed. Watch this tech demonstration of Trailer Sway
Control using the 2013 Terrain Denali small SUV. For more information on

2012 GMC Sierra HD | Pickup Truck | Trailering & Sway Control Features
A review of the 2012 GMC Sierra HD pickup truck in regards to Trailering

controller, and smart Exhaust brake.

Dagg (EGM Truck Suspensions), and James A. Mikulec (Lead Development
Trailering Control on the Sierra HD is important when you need power to
pull the trailer and braking capability to stop it while still maintaining
Hill Start Assist is used when pulling a heavy load up a hill where the
technology compensates by not releasing the break when moving foot to the
accelerator. This prevents the pickup truck from rolling backward.
The Integrated Trailer Brake Controller works with the Stabilitrak system
to adjust the trailer brakes in relation to the truck brakes which is
useful in wet and icy conditions.
The Smart Exhaust Brake, a diesel only
feature, acts as a traditional Exhaust
brake to save wear and tear on the pickup truck's brakes but also
integrates with the transmission controls so you don't have to slam on the

Professional Grade Profiles | The People Behind GMC
Ken Wasmer, GMC Brake Engineer, is an avid smoker of fish and jerky. He
approaches both his work and personal life with the Professional Grade
attitude of an engineer. His methodology to smoking food is using objective
data of measuring temperatures and air flow alongside subjective data like
how good a piece of meat tastes. At the Milford Proving Grounds he
translates this engineering mentality into his professional role when doing
ABS Brake Testing on the GMC Terrain Smaller SUV. Ken is also happy to
bring his work and personal life together and sharing the smoked meat he
makes when getting up at 4am. It is a great feeling of satisfaction to
bring all his coworkers together and share in his smoked jerky at work.

If GMC built a F-150 Raptor Fighter, would it be this 2014 Sierra Custom Pickup?
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) GM and GMC sell hundreds of thousands of new
pickup trucks each year. The new Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra are
some of America's most popular pickup models, but unlike Ford GM doesn't
build a pure race truck. Of course where GM won't tread, other will dive in
with both legs. Take for instance this new 2014 custom GMC pickup that was
featured last year at SEMA. If GM did build a ford F-150 Raptor fighter
would it be this truck?

Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
