Not much of a Chevy fan but back in the day (84)
I had a S-10 with a 2.2 liter Isuzu diesel with a 4 speed. It was a nice truck and got 30 mpg overall.....

this is nothing new, look at other countries Isuzu Dmax. its a Colorado with an Isuzu diesel. they are just importing them now, or assembling them here with Isuzu motors. i had a Canyon (GMC version) and it was the biggest POS ever owned. Granted 90% of the break downs were engine related (2.8L gas Anchor, i mean Atlas motor). After the motor was rebuilt TWICE at 13,100 and 13, 200 miles...yeah 100 miles and BOOM...the interior electronics and manual trans went. the trans was from GM putting to thick of an oil in the truck when new, causing it to MELT 3rd gear...traded it for a Toyota Tacoma and havent looked back. now Nissan and Toyota are looking at diesels in the US.
a F150 SuperCrew with a decent 6 cylinder diesel and a MANUAL 6 speed....i'd be sleeping at the dealership until they opened....
