The GMC S-15 Jimmy was first introduced in the 1983 model year simultaneously with the Chevrolet S-10 Blazer. The GMC S-15 Jimmy is an SUV version of the GMC S15. The Jimmy is similar to the 4WD model Chevrolet S-10 Blazer wherein both these are midsize SUV type. This was based on the short wheel base trucks and was controlled on a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.
When it comes to the body type or body design, the styling of the GMC S-15 Jimmy was based on the first generation K5 Blazer and Jimmy with the C-pillars and lift glass panel. The Jimmy however did not have removable hardtops unlike its full size counterparts. It only features a two-door body because of its half-cab body style.
The engine of this GMC S-15 is able to run on a 2.0 L OHV four-cylinder engine. However, not many would be satisfied with the power it can produce especially those who love speed since it can only produce 83 hp. So in order to improve this situation, another option was provided in the form of the 2.8 L, V6 engine that can deliver up to 110 horsepower.
As years went by, more improvements were wrought upon the GMC S-15 Jimmy because by the year 1990 it is already being offered in the 4-door type. This new body design gained much approval from the critics. The new release already had a longer wheelbase unlike the first generation which were the two-door types. Anti-lock brakes came as standard equipment on the new generation of Jimmy. It also came with a higher capacity engine for improved horsepower.
Many people availed of the GMC S15 Jimmy especially the new 4-door type because it is very convenient for transporting cargo as well as people, in just one go. Its essential parts help a lot in giving comfort during the ride.
