The GMC Sonoma was commercialized between 1994 -2004 and served as a base for all the following midsized pickups designed by the company.
The truck had a competitive price, was pretty efficient and was also highly versatile being able to cope with a wide range of arduous applications.
The Sonoma was built in two generations and the second generation can be still seen today, in isolated corners doing some heavy duty jobs.
The old GMC Sonoma however, wasn’t at the same level with its Japanese rivals and this is one of the reasons which made GMC realize that it should leave this model behind and move on.
The latest generation GMC Sonoma was offered in regular, extended and crew cab bodies with short and long beds. Engine choices included a 2.2-liter four-cylinder (118 horsepower), a 4.3-liter V6 (165 hp) and the Vortec 4.3-liter V6 (195 hp).
