Upgraded K2500 light truck launched May 2012, supersedes K2900 model. Introduced with a flatbed truck. New model gets a modern 2.5L common rail turbo diesel engine to replace the 2.9L unit that was in the previous K2900. Despite being smaller, the new engine boasts 4.5% more power, now 96kW at 3800rpm & 4% more torque, rising to 255Nm, which is avail over a wide 1500 to 3500rpm band, matched to a 6MT, in place of the previous 5MT, which helps to reduce combined fuel consumption by 2% to 9.9L/100km.

K2500 largely retains the same cab & chassis structure as before, & can be readily distinguished on the road by the familiar Kia 'tiger nose' grille that sits above the enlarged bumper & air intake assembly. K2500 moves to 15in front wheels that improve ride & steering turn-in, retaining the twin rear wheels.

A Flat Bed variant is available, a refrigerated box body version, plus two new model variants which include a Cab chassis box body & walk-through box body avail through indent/special order only.
