What type of suspension does it have? Is the front IFS, or does
it have a solid axle?
GMC Portfolio Manager: The Terradyne has an Independent Front
Will this truck share its platform with the new HD trucks?
The Terradyne's platform is based on today's full size GM trucks,
(the same used in the Heavy Duty's).
The frame has
box structure up front, a roll formed center section manufactured
in a 'C-shape' for weight savings and enhanced rigidity, and a stamped
rear for carrying heavy loads. The center section is easily lengthened
or shortened according to the truck's requirements during manufacture.
Will the sliding doors ever be available on a production model?
It's possible that the "Gliding Doors" will be available
on a future GMC. The addition of gliding doors will be based on
the response GMC receives from the public. Gliding doors are actually
more ergonomic compared to the traditional sliding doors you might
find on a minivan.
How long is the Terradyne?
The Terradyne is about the same length as a full size extended cab
(225 inches). By moving the cab forward on the truck additional
room was added for passengers. The Terradyne actually has more room
on the interior than a traditional full size crew cab.
Will the Terradyne appear at other auto shows such as Philadelphia?
We are not yet sure which auto shows the Terradyne will be appearing
