The Jimmy is GMC's version of the Chevrolet Blazer, and it comes in the same two- and four-door configurations and in a similar lineup. Jimmy is available with 2WD or 4WD, and comes with General Motors' Autotrac 4WD system, which engages automatically.
The four-door, which accounts for the bulk of Jimmy sales, has split-bench seats front and rear for six-passenger capacity. SLE and SLT trims come with front buckets. The Diamond Edition adds a Bose premium sound system and electronic climate control.
Front buckets and cloth upholstery are your only choices on the two-door. With seven inches more wheelbase and overall length, the four-door has a roomier rear seat and more cargo space (74 cubic feet vs. 67 cubic feet).
Consumers have a choice on both two- and four-door models of either a liftgate that swings up or a tailgate that drops down. With either, the rear window opens separately and flips up. The spare tire is stored beneath the rear of the vehicle, which has advantages over other options but makes tire changes more awkward.
Under the Hood
All models come with a 190-horsepower, 4.3-liter V-6. A manual transmission is standard on the two-door and automatic is optional. On the four-doors, automatic is standard.
Two 4WD systems are available. Insta-Trac is standard on LS 4 x 4s and is engaged by a dashboard switch. Autotrac is standard on other 4 x 4s and automatically engages when more traction is needed.
