1983-85 Chevro­let S-10 Pickup/ GMC S-15

Diesel World - - Vintage Smoke Light Trucks: Part Two -

The S-10 GM mini-truck de­buted in a lim­ited roll­out in ’82 but was of­fered only as a 4x2 unit with no diesel op­tion. The full Chevy S-10 and GMC S-15 lines de­buted for ’83 and op­tion­ally in­cluded a slightly warmed-up ver­sion of the Isuzu 2.2L NA diesel that made 62 hp. It was of­fered un­der the Or­der­ing Code LQ7 and be­came gen­er­ally avail­able in May of 1983, so it didn’t get a full first year. It was avail­able in two-wheel-drive pick­ups only. The diesel was gone in the S-10 and S-15 af­ter ’85. It was such a short-term of­fer­ing that there isn’t much else to say. It wasn’t a bad truck at all if you didn’t need lots of raw power.
