2002 GMC Sonoma news, pictures, and information
2002 GMC SONOMA SIMPLIFIES LINEUP, ENHANCES VALUE WITH MORE FEATURESWith additional standard features and a more focused lineup, the 2002 GMC Sonoma adds outstanding value to its professional grade work capability. Led by its roomy, comfortable five-passenger Crew Cab, Sonoma provides exceptional versatility to satisfy the diverse needs of compact pickup customers.
More focused lineup, standard third door
For 2002, Sonoma offers a simpler selection of trim levels and a higher level of standard equipment. The changes simplify vehicle ordering and provide more customer value.
Although the 2WD Regular Cab long box model has been discontinued, customers still have a wide selection of bodystyles, including two-door Regular Cab, three-door Extended Cab and four-door Crew Cab models.
Sonoma's flagship four-door Crew Cab, introduced in the 2001 model year, provides access to a highly roomy and comfortable, sedan-like interior through four full-sized doors. It features such standard equipment as the Vortec 4300 V6 engine and 4L60-E four-speed electronic automatic transmission, SLS trim and four-wheel-drive, along wîth a specially designed short bed configuration. The Crew Cab further enhances its appeal wîth an available graphite leather trim interior and hard, lockable tonneau cover.
Sonoma offers a choice of two- or four-wheel-drive, two engines, three transmissions and four suspension selections. Three doors are now standard on all Extended Cab models, wîth the third door conveniently located behind the driver's door for easy rear-seat storage and passenger access. Every four-wheel-drive Extended Cab model, equipped wîth the ZR2 High Rider package, receives a standard ZR2 decal.
Sonoma's SLE trim is discontinued. However, chrome grille trim and a matching center cap on the wheels have been added to the SLS trim package. Also, a tachometer and air conditioning are now standard on all models sold to fleet customers. (They still have the air conditioning delete option available to them.) Sonomas delivered to North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Minnesota and Alaska now have the Cold Climate package standard.
Beige Custom cloth and Pewter Vinyl trim have been discontinued as a choice for regular customers (non-fleet purchases). Sandalwood is available as a new exterior color selection; Medium Sage Green Metallic is discontinued.
All Sonoma models offer a newly available rear cargo bed extender. New state-of-the-art audio systems replace previous standard AM/FM stereo and optional AM/FM stereo cassette audio systems in mid-year. Availability of the new sound systems depends on the trim level. All audio systems have four speakers and include:
A higher-level ETR AM/FM stereo radio wîth digital clock, preset scan, standard on SL and SLS trim, except for the Crew Cab.
An optional (except Crew Cab) ETR AM/FM stereo radio wîth single-disc CD player; it also features automatic tone control, CD random select and speed-compensated volume (which automatically adjusts volume as speed increases to compensate for road noise) as well as TheftLock.
An ETR AM/FM stereo radio wîth in-dash, single-disc CD player and in-dash cassette tape player, standard on Crew Cab and optional on other models; it also features automatic tone control, speed-compensated volume, CD random-select capability and bi-directional seek capability, search and repeat and TheftLock.
An ETR AM/FM stereo radio wîth speed-compensated volume, TheftLock and an in-dash, six-disc CD player, optional on all models; the CD player provides the flexibility of loading or ejecting any one of the six CDs independently of the others, loading up all six in rapid sequence wîth the press of one button or ejecting all six wîth the press of another button. It also provides single-disc random play, selecting tracks from one disc, or full random play, skipping from one disc to the next.Source - GMC
