1991 Chevrolet S-10
The Chevrolet S-10 is a popular compact pickup truck that first rolled out of the Chevrolet manufacturing facility in 1981. It is the first domestically built pickup produced by the big three American automakers. Its initial version is known as S-15 and is later renamed GMC Sonoma. The 1991 Chevrolet S-10 is a high-performance version that is also named GMC Syclone.
Isuzu also sold this pickup as Hombre from 1996 to 2000 in North America. This pickup truck also had an SUV version that was the 1991 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer, also known as GMC S15 Jimmy. An electric version came out in 1997 and 1998 and all these pickups constitute the Chevrolet series.
Although the company started the production of this lineup in 2012, it is still popular among the masses for its impressive functionality. The 1991 Chevrolet S-10 is a part of the first-generation Chevrolet S-10. The first model came out in 1982, and the Chevrolet and GMC models were significant with their tailgates, assorted insignia, and grille.
The 1991 model is a four-wheel drive with five-speed manual transmission and a V6 Cylinder that produces 160 horsepower and 230 lb.-feet of torque. It offers two basic trim levels: regular and extended cab.
The Chevy S-10 EL:
The 1991 S-10 EL is Chevy’s most popular compact pickup for all the good reasons. It is the lowest priced and has the same tough truck build as the entire S-10 line. S-10 EL options included an option package consisting of a rear step bumper, a full-size spare tire, and a 20-gallon fuel tank. It has foam cushioned, 3-passenger bench seats clothed in vinyl or custom cloth. Like all 1991 models, the S-10 EL and standard models also received exterior appearance changes, including a new front grille.
Both models have an enhanced 2.5-liter L4 engine with electronic fuel injection, a rear wheel antilock brake system, tinted glass, a 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive, and a front stabilizer bar.
The S-10 four-into-four models also come with a patented “shift on the fly” in Insta-trac 4*4 system that allows you to shift in and out of the four-wheel drive without stopping or backing up.
What was new in the Chevrolet S-10 in 1991?
The 1991 Chevrolet S-10 compact pickup model had a new grille, restyled wheels, and fresh trim. The four-wheel drive models got a 4.3-liter V6 engine as standard. The Durango trim is gone from the lineup this year, and the base 4-cylinder power plant has more horsepower mid-year.
S-10 Mexi-cab Spaciousness:
A 1991 Chevy S-10 with optional luxury Tahoe trim has a look and feel of its own. When combined with the maxi cab model, available with any S-10 trim level, it sets new records in personal transportation.
Its special features include front-end Chrome and body molding accents. Rally wheels with trim rings on 2-wheel drive models and black steel wheels with trim rings on four into-four models are also prominent features.
The special tailgate applique, black body side moldings with bright trim, black exterior mirrors, bright wheel opening moldings, deluxe steering wheel, and deluxe headliner make Mexi cab trim a top pick for those who can afford it.
It featured extra insulation and sound-deadening materials to help the passengers and driver have a pleasantly quiet ride.
Some Mexican models feature an extended cab on a longer wheelbase. It offers additional in-cab storage space or force passenger seating with optional front bucket seats and two rear jump seats. The rear seats fold up out of the way to allow more in-cab storage space.
S-10 Compact Pickup Baja:
Technically, the Baja is an optional off-road appearance package. Its style and design give you a real sense of mastering the road or off the road.
The S-10 Baja comes in black, frost white, and apple red at midnight. Its major distinctions include a light bar with a front grill guard, driving lamps, off-road lamps, and a tubular rear bumper. Exterior touches that set Baja apart include all-terrain white-lettered tires, special brushed aluminum wheels, unique budget graphics, and a black grille with a black headlight and taillight bezels.
Special options include a cargo net and gated special pickup box mounted spare tire carrier. If any of these parts mess up and present issues, S-10 Service Manual can mostly help. Options for the budget package include the luxury-level Tahoe interior trim, an underbody shield package, and a suspension package.
Shown here as a regular cab, the S-10 short box budget package is also available as a maxi cab.
