At first, the Chevrolet S-10 was a compact pickup truck produced by Chevrolet. When it was first introduced as a "quarter-ton pickup" in 1981 for the 1982 model year, the GMC version was known as the S-15 and later renamed the GMC Sonoma.
The GMC S 15 debuted in 1983. New heavy-duty and off-road suspensions appeared in 1984 along with a hydraulic clutch, while the big news for 1985 was the discontinuation of the Cavalier's 2.0 L OHV I4 in favor of Pontiac's 2.5 L "Iron Duke" OHV I4. After 1984, only the Iron Duke and updated 2.8 L V6. With these engine sizes and specs, it is one of the more fuel economic vehicles. A much-welcomed 4.3 L V6 was added for 1988. Compact, yet spacy, this beauty will fulfill all your needs.
