2001 GMC Jimmy Overview

By Cars.com Editors
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.



Exterior
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.



Interior
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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
