There’s been a Honda Civic badge hiding in every single GMC vehicle that’s been built since 1975.

It’s very subtle, but it’s there.

It’s one of those things, once you’ve seen it, it’s impossible to unsee it.

Honda and GMC aren’t exactly brothers.

They’ve got very little in common, other than the fact they operate in (some of the) same markets.

There are even fewer points in common when it comes to GMC, the brand, and the Honda Civic, as in this specific model.

Let’s put it this way, there’s no Honda Civic model that comes with the crabwalk like the GMC Sierra EV does.

GMC doesn’t even make any cars that are in the same segment as the Civic which, by the way, is apparently John Cena’s daily driver.

But the ‘hidden’ Civic logo is there, all you have to do is slip the ‘G’, ‘M’, and ‘C’ letters a certain way and the result is a ‘Civic’ badge.

A user who goes by Takuro Spirit found out and shared it to X, and now we can’t unsee it.

Is this a coincidence?

The short answer is, yes, absolutely.

We reckon somebody was just bored and found out by accident.

But it’s quite interesting to see that even though automakers go to extreme lengths to make sure the fonts they use are different, they still end up being similar sometimes.

How the GMC logo changed through the years

The GMC logo has changed 10 times throughout the brand’s history, but the last four changes have been slight.

The first badge, used from 1911 and until 1947, and the fourth one (1958-1967) are the only ones where ‘General Motors Corporation’ is written in full.

Since 1971, the badge has only featured the three-letter logo, and it hasn’t really changed much since.

Crucially, the Honda Civic-style font hasn’t changed since 1975.
