About GMC S15 Jimmy

Acting as an SUV version of the GMC S15, which is the counterpart to Chevrolet S10, GMC S15 Jimmy was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's GMC division between 1982 and 1991. Originally introduced as a sporty version of the S15, S15 Jimmy also has a counterpart in Chevrolet lineup called S10 Blazer. As the second model introduced as a sporty utility vehicle, S15 Jimmy dropped the S15 from its name in 1991 for the 1992 model year after being only manufactured for one generation.
GMC S15 Jimmy made its debut in 1982 as a 1983 model along with its rebadged variant, the Chevrolet S10 Blazer. It was built at the GM GMT330 platform based on the GMC S15 pickup trucks. Originally it was offered in a 2-door body style, in 1991, it added a 4-door version. And it came in two versions: standard cab and extended cab. During its lifetime, due to emission laws, S15 Jimmy was powered by engines rating from a base 1.9 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 82 horsepower and 101 pound-feet of torque to a 4.3 L V6 cranking out 160 hp and 230 pound-feet of torque, and all these engines sent power through the 4-speed automatic transmissions to either the rear wheels or four wheels.
