The Chevy S-10 was first introduced in 1982. It was the first small size pickup truck to be designed and built domestically by the big 3 auto companies. There had been other small pickups, but those were rebadged imports. This model is the first generation of the truck, which lasted until to 1993. The S-10 is now into its third generation. When building the S-10, GM used many off the shelf parts from other vehicles. Mostly these parts came from GMs G-body line of intermediate cars. At the same time a GMC version was offered and was named the S-15 Sonoma. Many different engines and transmissions were offered in both lines including a diesel engine.
