Nothing fancy, but reliable and tough

by Al from Tennessee on Mon Apr 11 2011

It's my second pickup and outside of a few minor trim defects, it's trouble free. It always starts and goes, and with the 4 cyl. engine it's good on gas. Surprisingly, the engine is plenty, it has adequate "oomph" for local driving and truck style errands.

Our Take on the 1997 GMC Sonoma

Used to be that two-seaters were exclusively sports cars, but nowadays many of the two-seaters we see prowling the roads are compact pickup trucks.

Why are they so popular? In may ways they have taken the place of sports cars because they're fun, different and an expression of individualism, if you will. Plus, they can be used for light hauling, should the need arise.

With the sports-car image in mind, GMC has come up with a ZQ8 suspension package for the two-wheel-drive Sonoma that tames most of its truck vices and serves up handling more at home on a twisty road than a construction site.
