As a unique model in the long-lasting and renowned Chevrolet C/K lineup, Chevrolet K2500 was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division between 1960 and 2000 as a full-size pickup truck.

"K" in its name stands for it was a four-wheel drive truck and "2500" indicates it weighs one ton. Just like K1500, K2500 was also replaced by the Chevrolet Silverado after being manufactured for four generations in 2000.

GM's Rounded-Line moniker for K2500 highlighted its rounded styling cues such as rounded windshield corners, rounded corners of the cab roof, rounded-corner doors and rounded pickup box corners. Available in base (standard) Custom, mid-range Custom Deluxe, luxury Cheyenne and top-of-the-line Cheyenne Super trim levels, K2500 was powered by engines ranging from 4.1 L I6 to 6.2 L V8 mated to 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed manual transmissions. The last-generation K2500 was introduced in April 1987 as a 1988 model. It came in four versions: Fleetside Single Cab, Fleetside Extended Cab, Fleetside Crew Cab and Stepside Single Cab and three trim levels: Cheyenne, Scottsdale and Silverado. Back then, K2500 got power from 4.3 L V6, 5.0 L V8, 5.7 L V8 and 6.2 L diesel V8 through 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed, 5-speed manual transmissions.
