GM’s GMT330 platform spawned three variants: the well-known Chevy Blazer, GMC Jimmy, and the slightly lesser-known of the three, the Oldsmobile Bravada. The Bravada was yet another example of how crowded and confusing GM’s nameplates were. While the GMC Jimmy was slightly more luxurious than the Blazer, the Bravada was more luxurious and luxurious than both, even though such a job should have gone to Buick.

While it had a slightly different front end in keeping with Olds design language, it was essentially a Blazer/Jimmy. Oldsmobile gave the Bravada GM’s SmartTrak stability control system as a luxury selling point. This was a feature neither the Blazer nor Jimmy was equipped with. But that was the extent of the differentiation.

The Bravada lasted for three generations, from 1990 to 2004. The last generation has moved to the GMT360 platform shared with the Chevy Trailblazer, Buick Rainer, Saab 9-7X and GMC Envoy.
