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