Genuine off-road SUVs are still in demand, as evidenced by the revival of the Ford Bronco and the Wrangler’s everlasting popularity. These vehicles are increasing in popularity, so GM will not just watch its rivals make huge profits on their off-roaders. They will be able to offer a strong competitor, and GM will revive a well-known nameplate just like Ford. We expect to see the new 2024 GMC Jimmy off-roader.
The model’s specifications and features are not yet known by the officials. We can only speculate and rely on rumors for the time being. Some things, such as the platform and body design, are easy to predict. The powertrain department should not be a surprise.
2024 GMC Jimmy Redesign
Let’s begin with the basics of the 2024 GMC Jimmy. First, the platform. The platform is what Jimmy would use to be an off-roader. Although some people speculate about Sierra’s full-size platform design, we believe that GMC engineers would prefer a Canyon-based design. A new platform has been added to the mid-size pickup. The majority of the mechanics, including the powertrain, chassis, and suspension setup, would be shared.
We are certain that the company will offer an off-road version of its chassis and suspension setup. The AT4X badge may be included, but the company will certainly offer many upgrades such as an off-road suspension, locking differentials, and a disconnecting swaybar.
The 2024 GMC Jimmy will feature a bold, classic SUV design when it comes to its exterior design. We are still not certain about the dimensions. Sources suggest that there are two- and four-door versions. This is something both rival companies have been doing with their models. Some sources, however, suggest a slightly different approach. This would only include one variant and possibly even the third row of seats. This would be a direct challenge to the Toyota 4Runner.
However, we believe that the aesthetics will bring more surprises, particularly at the front where the company will most likely use the same design language and style as the Canyon. While the front should be the same, the rest of the body might offer some new ideas. The off-road model would include a lot more accessories and styling options.
We expect a close relationship with the Canyon pickup once again. The new mid-size pickup’s dashboard design is particularly attractive. The dashboard is very elegant, and the materials used are of high quality. There are a lot of tech and convenience options, including large screens. Base models include an 8-inch digital cluster and an 11.3-inch infotainment display. You can also upgrade to an 11-inch instrument display.
The offer of different body types and dimensions will determine the seating arrangement. We could also see 4-door and 2-door versions, just as we did with the rivals. We could also see larger sizes and an optional third row of seats in other situations.
This is an area where there won’t be any surprises. The Canyon’s new model has just been released and features a new powertrain: a 2.7-liter turbo four engines that is paired with an 8-speed auto transmission. Canyon’s new engine is available in three output options, so expect nothing less from the SUV.
Base models will come with a 237 horsepower variant, while the higher trim levels will have about 301 horsepower. The most powerful off-roaders will have a variant with 310 horsepower, and 430 pound-feet torque. All models will come with an 8-speed auto transmission and a standard four-wheel drive, as we have already stated.
2024 GMC Jimmy Release Date & Price
Official confirmation of the 2024 GMC Jimmy is yet to be received. Rumors suggest that it may be on the market within the next year. Base versions are expected to cost between 35-40,000 dollars.
