Never had one problem with this truck, (bought with 45000 miles on it), then right at 100500 miles the engine gave up on me. Ive read there were a few years where Chevy made a "butter block" as in soft, and apparently I got one. But I love this truck and I put in a replacement motor from a 95 S-10, same 4.3 V-6 Vortec, and when I recieved it, had a badge on the engine block from GMC stating the engine had been rebuilt once already in 98!! Like I said I love this truck and barring this "little" problem the truck has been wonderful.
Safety is enhanced with the side door guard beams designed to minimize intrusion into the passenger compartment during a side impact. A center high-mounted brake light is also added to enhance safety.
Chevy boasts it is the first automaker to offer a turbodiesel engine option in a vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating less than 8,500 pounds.
Rust corrosion protection is improved while interior noise vibration and harshness is reduced. Rounding out the list of significant improvements are the addition of an "easy entry" feature to the front passenger seat on extended cab body styles to ease entry into the rear seating positions and the revision of the exterior front-end styling.
