About GMC S15

Working as the counterpart to the Chevrolet S10, GMC S15 was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's GMC division between 1982 and 1991 as a compact pickup truck.

Identical with Chevrolet S10 apart from the grille, tailgate and assorted insignia, S15 was offered with both standard cab and extended cab versions. Equipped with an off-road suspension, optional dirt fans, a roll bar mounted in the bed and fitted with driving lights, ABS brakes, GMC S15 came in three trim levels: base, Baja and Sierra. And during its lifetime, GMC S15 was powered by engines ranging from 1.9 L I4 rated at 82 hp and 101 lb-ft of torque and 4.3 L V6 generating 195 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, and these engines sent power through the 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed, 5-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels or four wheels.
