Review of the 2000 GMC Sonoma

  • The Sonoma offers an extensive array of available configurations and options. Too bad high-quality interiors and rock-solid build quality aren't on those lists, otherwise we might recommend it. But as it stands, we'd stick with a Ford Ranger or Toyota Tacoma.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sporty styling, fuel-efficient base engine, powerful optional V6.

  • Cons

    Cheesy interior plastics, low seating positions, spotty build quality.

  • What's New for 2000

    Four-wheel-drive Sonomas get a higher-output V6 and a handling/trailering suspension standard. GMC drops the 4WD long-bed and High-Rider regular-cab models and adds a new, lower-priced base-trim extended-cab model. All versions get a boost in trailer ratings and a new paint color.

Vehicle: 2000 GMC Sonoma SLS Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB

I drove an auto and it was doggy so I got the 5 speed. The bed is flimsy and it has some type of strange idle memory often starts and revs up for a few seconds. This is just the way it is made. I get 23mpg. I had to have the exhaust replaced underwarranty due to rattles. other than that no problems. Do not buy it if you need room get a full size
