The GMT 360 debuted in 2002 with the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, and Oldsmobile Bravada, as the next generation S/T mid-size SUVs. While it replaced the GMT 330, it shared nothing with the older platform. It used hydroformed frame rails like the larger GMT 800, and was built for GM's Atlas inline engines. The GMT 360 (and the long-wheelbase GMT 370) went on to be one of the most rebadged GM products with six different marques represented.

The 360 uses an independent suspension in front. In the rear, a 5-link rear suspension was used, with air suspension available on some models. A 4-speed automatic is the only transmission available.

This line was replaced in 2009, however, with crossover vehicles based on a stretched version of the TE (Theta Premium) architecture. A planned replacement, codenamed GMT 361, was cancelled. However, according to the GM Fleet website, the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, and Saab 9-7X were to remain in production for the 2009 model year. Production ended in late December 2008.
