Now eight years old (that's, like, 80 in people years), the Chevy S-10 is in desperate need of a redesign. That's coming, and soon. But for now, this middling edition is on sale. Try the Dodge Dakota, Ford Ranger, Mazda B-Series or Toyota Tacoma on for size instead, pardner.
- Fuel-efficient base engine, torquey optional V6, stump-jumping ZR2 off-road package.
- Spotty build quality, inferior-grade interior trim, low seating positions, poor crash-test scores.
