The GMC S15 closely followed its sister car, the Chevrolet S10, into production, so was technically the second compact pickup truck produced by one of North America’s main automakers. Power came from a 1.9-liter four-cylinder Isuzu engine, although buyers also had the option of a 2.8-liter V6. In 1983, four-wheel drive was added, as was an extended-cab model, plus 2.0-liter and 2.2-liter engines. The trucks also spawned the Chevrolet Blazer and GMC Jimmy SUVs. A 4.3-liter V6 appeared in 1988, as did anti-lock brakes, then the super-high performance version called the GMC Syclone appeared in 1991. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of GMC repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our GMC S15 repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
