The life of the durable S-10 is slowly coming to a close.
The compact pickup truck has had a nice run, but as we well
know, all good things must come to an end. For the S-10,
it is being discontinued to make way for the all-new Colorado,
a slightly larger pickup truck with a more modern flare.
For its last go-round, the manufacturers at Chevrolet decided
to offer the 2004 Chevy S-10 only as a 4WD crew cab. This
sporty, versatile model displays the range of talents that
the S-10 is known for. It has power, handling, spaciousness
and comfort all wrapped together.
The 2004 Chevy S-10 is offered as a crew cab in an LS trim.
The S-10 crew cab has four full doors and can seat up to
five passengers on two front bucket seats and a rear bench
The inside of the 4WD crew cab is roomy and well appointed.
Air conditioning, a tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel,
heated power mirrors, power windows and door locks, remote
keyless entry, an AM/FM/CD player, a digital clock, a compass
and an outside-temperature indicator are all standard-and
that's just part of the list.
There aren't many options for 2004, but the ones available
are quite enticing. Leather upholstery and an in-dash 6-disc
CD changer top the list of available interior enhancements.
For its last year, the 2004 Chevy S-10 offers a ZR5 Appearance
Package. It outfits the pickup with Spectra Gray wheel flares
and bumpers, 15-inch cast-aluminum five-spoke wheels, side
steps, bed rails, a roof rack and ZR5 decals.
The engine of the 2004 Chevy S-10 is a 4.3-liter Vortec
V6 model, able to generate 180 horsepower at 4400 rpm and
245 lb-ft of torque at 2800 rpm. The multi-port fuel-injection
system features a central fuel injector that delivers a
separate flow of fuel to six individual hybrid injectors
for better performance and improved emissions. It is mated
to a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The S-10 employs an advanced four-wheel drive system for
exceptional handling in tough situations. The Insta-trac
system is standard on the Crew Cab and features an electronic
shift transfer case, which provides shift-on-the-fly capability
from 2WD to 4WD High and back by using an instrument panel-mounted
Safety and Security
The Chevy S-10 will go out as safe as when it first debuted.
4-wheel antilock disc brakes, dual front airbags and daytime
running lights are standard. Limited-slip differential is
