PakWheels has brought a special review for its readers, which is of GMC Limousine. Royal Limousine Service currently owns the car. Giving a brief intro of the car, the company’s manager told us that it is a 2016 model, American car.
The company also owns other limousine cars, including Hummer and Cadillac, and it provides these cars on rent for marriage ceremonies, corporate meetings, and birthday parties.
The specialty of GMC Limousine:
The unique thing about this car is that it is the one and only GMC Limo in Pakistan. Furthermore, it is 40-feet long, making it the longest Limo in the country.
Is it Easy to Drive?
The manager told us that company hires very experienced drivers for this car, and two drivers are usually present in the vehicle at a time. “One drives it, while the second helps him in maneuvering it on the local roads, especially on sharp turns,” he said.
“Our drivers even take these cars in rural areas,” he said. Furthermore, there is no issue of taking it to top speed as the manager said that they have driven these cars as per road speed limits in the country.
Engine of GMC Limousine:
The car comes with a 6.2L V8 engine. Although the car is very long, but the engine easily pulls the massive body of this vehicle.
Exterior of GMC Limousine:
At the front, the car has projection headlights with DRLs and fog lights. It has a chrome front grille, with the company’s monogram. Furthermore, the company has installed a special footstep so that passengers can easily enter/exit the car.
The Limo comes with 20-inch alloy rims.
The car has the company’s logo, tow hook, and a bed at the rear, which has AC condensers to maintain cooling inside the vehicle.
Is Length a Problem?
According to the manager, vehicle’s tyres and brake pads bear the most impact due to its extra length. “However, there is no issue in its suspension because GMC itself has installed it in this vehicle while keeping its length in mind,” the manager said.
He further said they have to change the tyres after every 40,000 kilometers while installing new brake pads after 15-20,000 kilometers.
Furthermore, the company has provided special support under the car’s body, so that its whole outlook remains unaffected.

The manager said ten persons could easily sit and travel in this vehicle. The company has installed a partition between the back and front cabins to maintain the privacy of customers.
