2001 GMC Jimmy review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Jimmy is an upscale version of the midsize SUV that Chevrolet sells as the Blazer and Oldsmobile sells as the Bravada. All three will be redesigned and introduced next spring as early 2002 models.

GMC’s current model comes in two- and four-door wagon body styles, but the 2002 will be renamed Envoy and will come only as a four-door.

Jimmy’s styling is the same as the Blazer’s except for a different grille and trim. The four-door model is 184 inches long, about 6 inches shorter than the Ford Explorer and 7 inches longer than the two-door Jimmy.

All models have two front bucket seats. The four-door seats three in back, and the two-door holds two, and the rear seat is split and folds for extra cargo room on both. Cargo volume is 67 cubic feet on the two-door and 74 cubic feet on the larger four-door. The OnStar communication system is a new factory option instead of a dealer-installed accessory. On models with power door locks, the doors can be programmed to lock and/or unlock automatically. An optional molded composite cargo organizer fits into the cargo area floor and provides compartments for carrying groceries, sports gear and tools.

Under the Hood
All models come with a 190-horsepower 4.3-liter V-6 engine, but there is a choice of transmissions and either two- or four-wheel drive. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on two-door Jimmys. A four-speed automatic is standard on the four-door and optional on the two-door.

Two 4WD systems are available. Insta-Trac is standard on SLS and SLE 4x4s and is engaged by a dashboard switch. Autotrac is standard on 4WD SLT and Diamond Edition models, and it engages automatically when more traction is needed.

Antilock brakes are standard on all models.

Don't buy Chevy

The 2001 GMC Jimmy SLT is the biggest waste of money I ever could have paid for, I paid 7500 USD for a southern rust free truck and spent over 40000 total just in repairs parts might be cheap for a gm but the quality sucks I have had it in a shop or on the side of the road more than I have driven it even when I got it used with 56k on the dashboard it had big problems. Been through 2 new reman 4.3 vortec v6 engines, transmission overheated badly inevitably needing a rebuild, and still overheated, so had to install a class a RV trans cooler just to keep temps down. Ontop of 4wd always having issues with the front diff leaking and a lot of wiring nightmares with it being an older truck now, wiring harnesses get brittle with age. The worst peeve I have had about it is the front door hinges and latches are garbage, I have to replace them every year because they do not hold. I owned my jimmy for 7 years and was the largest disappointment of a vehicle I've ever had


Good used truck

Have hunted for this truck to fix up. This is where the best price in the state was and in this time of panic cool thinking and good people make a difference. Thanks so much for all your efforts.


I own a 2001 GMC Jimmy. The interior is nice exce

I've had the car for a long time since 2005. Overall I do like my Jimmy. I really liked my blazer better because of the interior design. The gear shift was on the steering column. To drink holders were on the console.
