The 1973 Arab oil embargo forced GM to consider designing a domestically-produced compact pickup truck. As usual, parts from other GM chassis lines (primarily from the GM G-body intermediates) were incorporated. The first S-series pickups were introduced in 1982. The Chevrolet and GMC models were identical apart from the grille. An extended cab and "Insta-Trac" four wheel drive were added the next year along with two new engines. Track width was similar to the former GM H-body subcompacts (Vega/Monza).120 hp 85 tq The sport utility S-10 Blazer and S-15 Jimmy debuted in 1983; GM was the second to introduce compact sport utilities behind Jeep but ahead of Ford. This trend occurred again where 4-door variants were introduced in March 1990 as 1991 models alongside the similar Oldsmobile Bravada. New heavy-duty and off-road suspensions appeared in 1984 along with a hydraulic clutch, while the big news for 1985 was the discontinuing of the Cavalier's 2.0 L OHV I4 in favor of Pontiac's 2.5 L "Iron Duke" OHV I4. The OHV-derived 2.2 L diesel engine and 1.9 L SOHC gas engine, both from Isuzu, were gone the next year, leaving just the Iron Duke and updated 2.8 L V6. A much-welcomed 4.3 L V6 was added for 1988, and anti-lock brakes came the next year. The GMC S-15 became the GMC Sonoma in 1991, and the Sierra trim packages are dropped to avoid confusion with the new GMC Sierra full-size pickup. The GMC Syclone also appeared that year. The Sonoma GT bowed in 1992. Added to this was the 4.3 L V6 Vortec W code engine. This generation's last year was 1993. The Vortec is essentially the standard Z code 262 cu in (4.3 L) engine. The difference is the W code used a balance shaft, roller cam shaft, different heads, and Central Port Injection. The 1992 and 1993 engine came in either a 195 hp (145 kW) or 205 hp (153 kW) rating. The High Performance version came with a larger diameter Y pipe, and was only installed in some of the Blazers and S-10 Jimmies as well as the S-10 Pickups

8 SEC S10! TWIN TURBO! NMCA WINNER! DRAG WEEK WINNER! FASTEST STOCK BOTTOM END LS!
2015 was quite the year for Chris Bishir and his "SILVER82" S10 Chevy pickup. Powered by a junkyard '05 5.3L stock bottom end LS engine with ported heads, Comp Cams hydraulic-roller, and twin 66mm BorgWarner turbos (no Intercooler or methanol), Chris won the NMCA True Street Class, plus the match race for the ring at the 10th Annual NMRA/NMCA SuperBowl of Street Legal Drag Racing held at RT66 Joliet in August. Then a month later, Chris won the Street Race Sm Block Power Adder Class at the '15 Hot Rod Drag Week averaging 8.608@158.34mph. His S10 has also garnished the title as the World's Fastest Stock Bottom End LS Engine laying down low 8 sec passes plus gracing the pages of numerous national automotive magazines. Congrats to Chris on a great 2015!
