When arriving at the destination despite the conditions is essential, the K2500 4×4 light truck is the answer. This heavy-duty workhorse is available at all Kia dealerships nationwide—with body configuration options to suit your business needs
The Philippines and its unpredictable weather and road conditions make the Kia K2500 light truck the ideal choice for business owners who need a vehicle that they can count on to arrive at their destination. The K2500 is unique because it is the only light truck in the Philippine market equipped with a 4×4 drivetrain. This means maximum traction despite drastic changes in weather and road conditions. This kind of capability gives business owners the confidence to tackle any unforeseen challenges—even after the paved road ends. Adding to the K2500’s go-anywhere specifications is having one of the highest ground clearances at 200mm.
The K2500 also wears the crown for being one of the most powerful vehicles in its class. Under the cab is a 2.5-liter CRDi turbodiesel that delivers 130ps at 3,800rpm and 255Nm of torque from 1,500rpm to 3,500rpm. Mated to this powerful and efficient motor is a 6-speed transmission which allows for better fuel efficiency and flexibility whether on the open road or while navigating gridlock in urbanized areas. For added safety and peace of mind, the K2500 is also equipped with a Load-Sensing Proportioning Valve (LSPV) which regulates hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes depending on the payload. This ensures that the K2500 can stop safely, whether laden or unladen.
The K2500 variants available from all Kia dealerships are the 4×2 and 4×4 Single Cab and Chassis and 4×4 Single and Double Cab Dropside. Single-cab variants can seat three adults, while double-cab versions can seat six.
The K2500 is a solid foundation for the following body configurations that can be ordered as dealer options. The ultimate workhorse is the K2500 4×4 which has a 1,353kg payload capacity for the single-cab variant and a 1,204kg payload capacity for the double-cab variant. The K2500 4×4 single-cab closed-van ‘Kargo’ configuration with a maximum payload capacity of 953kg can haul very large volumes. For example, its 5.52ft height by 5.71ft width by 10ft length can easily accommodate 64 45-liter cool boxes. The K2500 double-cab ‘Drop Side’ configuration with a 1,204kg maximum payload capacity can carry 20 crates. There is also an option for a refrigerated van that can handle 92 crates. Each of these configurations can be adapted to suit even the most demanding transport and logistics requirements.
The K2500 comes with a 3-Year/110,000kms warranty and 3-year free 24/7 Roadside Assistance. It also has a low cost of maintenance to help businesses further minimize spending and maximize profits. And in case of untoward incidents, Kia has a large stock of readily available parts and a nationwide network of service centers that are always ready to serve. This kind of dealership support will greatly reduce any potential downtime.
