After the year 1994 GMC Jimmy became a mass production car. Earlier, the car was used by military sources, and was produced in limited editions. But since the production was put on a large scale, the truck gained huge popularity. The producer tried hard to make the truck superior to its rivals. That is why so many changes were introduced to the model through the years.
4.3-liter V6, coupled to 4-speed automatic transmission engine was in standard specification. The power source made the car capable of producing 195 horsepower. Two-door vehicles were equipped with 5-speed manual transmission. The configuration of four-door models made it possible to install a V6 engine named “Vortec”. The later generations were equipped with ABS, for ventilated breaks discs, front and rear suspension with special stabilizers.
It is interesting to find out that there were many versions of the body of the car. But all the types and versions were united by the same technical characteristics. But on the other hand, the number of options differed from model to model. The famous GMC Jimmy, GMC Jimmy 4WD, GMC Jimmy Wagon, GMC Jimmy Wagon 4WD were the representatives of the lineup. The latest version, Jimmy Wagon 4WD was the largest. This very model was introduced in the year 1995 and was modified significantly until it was replaced by a brand-new version – GMC Envoy.
Year by year the models became easier to handle. The exterior was completely redesigned which was shown by new look of the car. By the year 2001 the shape of the car made it look less outstanding. The truck became elegant, though some elements of the exterior were made of plastic. This fact made some worshippers of purely American cars think twice before buying it. But the spacious cabin, together with large cargo capacity and the comfortable ride spoke in favor of GMC Jimmy.
The reviews to the car are positive because the off-road vehicle is easy to handle in all the conditions. The car was very popular despite the fact that repairs could bring trouble to the owner: there was huge demand for details which wasn’t satisfied by the producer. But later this problem was solved.
