GMC Jimmy is a mid-size SUV. It has smart and dynamic appearance. Masculine look is supplemented with wide wheel arches and predatory grille with logo. Initially, the car was designed for the army, but in 1994 it went into mass production. It is based on the famous platform S.
The model was produced in several versions, with different trim levels: GMC Jimmy, GMC Jimmy 4WD, GMC Jimmy Wagon, GMC Jimmy Wagon 4WD. Series of Wagon differed with presence of five doors. The technical characteristics were the same for all versions. Jimmy 4WD appeared only in 1995, and was distinguished from its predecessors by large dimensions.
GMC Jimmy could boast of excellent traction qualities and confident jerk at the start. Frame construction, self-locking differentials freed the driver from thinking about switches and blocks.
Under the hood we can find aspirated engine with volume of 4.3 liters and capacity of 190 hp, which is aggregated with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The five-speed manual transmission came later, but it was installed only on a model with two doors.
Jimmy can be safely called a legendary car. It became a hero of the time and was the first in many respects. Its friendly and comely forms indicated that the exterior of SUV should not be brutal. Salon is spacious. It is made of inexpensive materials.
In standard situations, the luggage compartment volume is quite optimal, and if you fold the rear seat (in whole or in part), you can get an entire cargo area. In addition, the floor has four metal eyelets through which you can easily fix any big load. SUV has a good sound insulation and a decent smoothness.
The manufacturer has equipped the SUV with air conditioning, climate control, automatic window system, stereo with CD player and door locks on rear doors.
Jimmy is a reliable companion for outdoor enthusiasts. This practical American has tremendous maneuverability. With this car every trip will be comfortable regardless of the weather and road conditions.
The model has been undergoing improvements every year until 2001, when model Envoy came to replace Jimmy.
