Positioned in the middle of the compact pickup-truck market, the Chevy S-Series competed with its nearly identical corporate sibling, the GMC Sonoma, and with the Ford Ranger and Dodge Dakota.

Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]

1991[edit | edit source]

In the early '90s, the S-10 Pickup truck was available in Short Bed, Long Bed, Extended Cab, and EL Short Bed models.

1994[edit | edit source]

The Chevy S-Series pickup underwent a complete transformation in 1994.

The S-Series was available in both 2-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive versions, in both regular (with a short or long bed) and extended body versions. Although the S-Series offered only two trim levels, base and LS, a pair of special option packages (the Super Sport high-performance package and the ZR2 off-road package) were designed to appeal to buyers who prize performance.

1995[edit | edit source]

This year, the emphasis is on small refinements such as a driver's-side airbag, improved 60/40 split bench seats and revised chassis packages. Extended body models will also be available this year. New daytime running lights (headlights that turn on with the engine) will be introduced as standard equipment later in the year. This is a safety feature that makes the truck more visible.

The standard engine is a 118-horsepower 2.2-liter ohv inline Four with rear-wheel drive (4x2). Optional engines are two versions of the 4.3-liter ohv V6. The 155-horsepower version features more low-speed torque than last year. The Enhanced high-output 4.3-liter V6 delivers 191 horsepower, and four-wheel drive (4x4). A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, and a 4-speed automatic overdrive is optional. A 2-speed transfer case with a floor-mounted shift lever allows shift-on-the-fly 4wd operation. A 2-speed electric-shift transfer case is optional.
