Welcome to GMI! Quite an impressive list of vehicle! I didn't think GM sold the Sierra/Silverado outside of the North America. Do you see a lot of them in Saudi Arabia?

Ford and Toyota also sell their full-size pickups and SUVs over there.

Thanks.. These trucks are very popular over here.. Sierra is untouchable legend seriously.. Here in Saudi and the rest of gulf countries, GMC has been the king of trucks since the 70's.. Lots of song and poems were written just for admiring them

welcome aboard
3- 2009 SS - G8 I assume a Lumina? and NOT a US EXPORT correct? as 09 the ZETA cars where not for sale for NON cop duty in 09

are your trucks made for the middle east market or are they US domestic trucks exported for ME sales?
in the 80's chevy had a sales contract with the Iraqi government to sell them Malibu's and the transaction fell through and they ended up selling them in Canada
I owned one of those "Iraqi taxi's" as they where known

Thank you Richmond, Yes its the Lumina SS based Holden Commodore

Yes, My trucks are made for the Middle East through a GM certified dealership. However, there are not much of differences between US and ME trucks. Couple of differences i have noticed they are... No on star and no XM Radio .. the rest are exactly the same

You are absolutely right .. there are alot of videos from Saudi for all models GMCs .. try to copy this جمس and do a search in youtube
1970's and 80's GMCs were well known for their Big Blocks engines specially 454 .. they are now triple or more the price they were sold at that time here in KSA :)

Welcome to GMI Fahad.

I'm an Aussie and I hope you enjoyed your Holden's. I hope you are not using those trucks for pickup stunting... :D


;)
lol this Video ^_^ ...

Oh yea I did enjoy it pretty much.. that car was a blast in everything it does. though, i had to sell it. I have an old mother who can barely move. she found the sport seats were not easy to hop in or out of the car.. thats why i had to sell and bought a Cruze :) ... wish i could buy the new model. as you know they are being sold here any more :( sad
