GMC Desert Fox: celebrating 40 years in the Middle East


Happy New Year For All

Here is some information and photos for the 1979 Jimmy Desert Fox at Dubai Motor Show


GMC’s much loved Desert Fox special edition truck is celebrating its fortieth birthday this year, and to mark this anniversary a classic example appeared as one of the stars at this year’s Dubai International Motor Show. Bringing a significant dose of nostalgia to the event, the Desert Fox Jimmy model that made a special appearance on the GMC stand is particularly unique, having spent its entire working life in Saudi Arabia since first hitting the road in 1979.

Arguably one of the best-looking GMC special editions ever, the Desert Fox was designed in desert colors of Medium Buckskin, Russet, Dark Red, Light Mahogany and Deep Regal Blue – with Buckskin or red interior. This unique design was only available on two models: the Desert Fox Jimmy and Desert Fox Sierra. Both very capable of traversing some of the toughest desert terrain.

The Desert Fox started life in 1977, with a second edition in 1979, as a Jimmy or as a Sierra. They were available with a range of features, courtesy of a special equipment package, including:

Special five-band striping on the sides and hood;
Buckskin-painted wheels equipped with bright metal trim rings;
Color-coordinated Buckskin-colored brush guard and front-end guard equipped with chrome tow hooks and dual high-intensity off-road lights;
Special Desert Fox insignia on the front quarter panels;
Set of four side-mounted tie downs;
Buckskin colored roof racks;
Painted roof color-coordinated with Buckskin paint scheme;
Large grip, leather-wrapped custom sports steering wheel.
Recovery Winch
Rear Tire & Water Carrier ​
