2000 Oldsmobile Bravada Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Oldsmobile takes a four-door Chevrolet Blazer/GMC Jimmy, loads it with comfort and convenience features, makes 4WD standard and calls it Bravada. Similar in concept to GMC's luxury-oriented Envoy model, Bravada's key difference is in its 4WD system. Called SmartTrack, it automatically switches between 2WD and 4WD as needed. On the Envoy, the Autotrac 4WD does the same but can be locked out or locked into a low setting for off-roading.

Interior
Like its GMC twin, the Bravada is only available with four doors. It comes with front leather bucket seats. The rear bench seat splits 60/40 to provide flexible cargo space; with the rear seat up, the Bravada seats five. As one might expect from a high-end SUV, this model comes complete with all the convenience bells and whistles standard, including a HomeLink overhead transmitter. This can be programmed on up to three frequencies for use as a garage-door opener, entry door locks and so on.

Exterior
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
The Bravada is available with only one choice of engine: a 190-horsepower, 4.3-liter V-6. This 12-valve engine is the same offered standard on many GM SUVs, including the GMC Envoy and the Ch...

An automatic transmission is standard. The SmartTrack system senses the need for 2WD or 4WD and automatically switches between the two.

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.
