Chevrolet and GMC offered badge-engineered S10/S10 Blazer and Jimmy SUV and compact pickup twins from 1983 through 2005 across two generations. Considered compacts when launched, these models were 14.5 inches shorter and 14.9 inches narrower than the full-size K5 Blazer, leading to the nickname of ‘baby Blazer’. The S-series Blazer and Jimmy were for a long time, like their full-size counterparts, only offered in a two-door body style. The S-series Blazer and Jimmy did not feature removable hardtops and until the 1990 model year, were only offered as a two-door.
For the 1984 model year, GMC contracted with Components Concepts of Brighton, Michigan, to produce a limited run of “Woody” edition GMC S15 Jimmys. Unlike station wagons of the period, the “Woody” edition S15 Jimmy featured real marine-grade teak wood. Components Concepts recommended periodic maintenance with natural teak oil.
