Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Works for me!

This truck gives a firm ride and handles well. Plenty of low end torque which makes it good for towing.
Good truck, although, ive had to replace the rear end diff. other than that, solid built truck for the money. the 4.3 engine is very powerful, 110 thousand miles and still running like the day I bought it...serious!

The 2001 GMC Sonoma EXT Cab was my first truck I bought. I enjoy just about every minute I drive it. I have the 4.3 liter V-6, it is smooth and has great power. The inside is just basic, manual windows and locks, but I do have a CD player. Overall what I like about the Sonoma, it is a clean looking truck and is reliable no problems no worries.
