About GMC K2500

Also, being a model of the long-lasting and exceptional GMC C/K lineup, GMC K2500 was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's GMC division between 1960 and 1999 as a full-size pickup truck. Originally introduced as a part to complete the C/K lineup, K2500 is also an indispensable part that has observed the naming convention invented by General Motors to name its models for forty years. "K" represents it is a four-wheel drive truck while "2500" stands for it weighs one ton. But just like K1500, K2500 is also a counterpart to Chevrolet K2500 and it was eventually replaced by GMC Sierra after being manufactured for four generations as well.

It came in several trim levels: base (standard) Custom (replaced by base Sierra), mid-range Super Custom (later renamed to Sierra Grande), luxury Sierra (replaced by High Sierra) and top-of-the-line luxury Sierra Grande (became Sierra Classic in 1975 model year). During this generation, K2500 was powered by engine ranging from 4.1 L I6 to 6.2 L V8 and engines sent power through 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and manual transmissions to the four wheels. The more recent GMC K2500 was introduced in April 1987 as a 1988 model. It was offered in four versions: Fleetside Single Cab, Fleetside Extended Cab, Fleetside Crew Cab and Stepside Single Cab and three trim levels: Cheyenne, Scottsdale and Silverado. Its power came from engines varying from 4.3 L V6 to 6.5 L turbo diesel V8 mated to 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed, 5-speed manual transmissions.
