The Chevrolet S-10 Xtreme receives mixed reviews from professional reviewers but positive reviews from actual customers. According to the professionals, the main critiques of the vehicle are that it does not have enough power during acceleration, is at risk of front-end damage on anything but the smoothest of roads, and has poor handling. On the other hand, the aesthetic appeal of the truck and its price point are attractive to buyers.
The Chevy S-10 is a compact pickup truck produced by Chevrolet. The S-10 Xtreme package replaced the SS package in 1999. Later, Chevrolet replaced it with a new SS version. Both the Xtreme package and the SS package are high performance versions.
Reviews of the S-10 Xtreme reveal that owners are generally happy with the performance of the compact truck. The S-10 Xtreme has a slick look and sold for $15,000 to $16,000 new. Used, the truck is worth from $5,000 to $7,000.
Professional test truck drivers admit that the appearance and price of the vehicle are appealing. However, they cite issues with the truck's low body, handling, acceleration and braking power. Additionally, they caution that the $16,000 price tag could easily sneak up to around $20,000 when the buyer chooses additional trim options.
