Power without shortages.

People rely on you. The K2-series feels the same way. Making sure it never lets you down was the first thought in the minds of the KIA engineers. The K2700 has the perfect workhorse engine – a 2.7 litre, 4-cylinder, J2 diesel power plant that delivers 62 kW of power at 4150 rpm and 165 Nm of torque at 2400 rpm. The K2500’s 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve turbo engine is even more powerful and delivers 96 kW of power at 3800 rpm and 255 Nm of torque between 1500-3500 rpm.

Front open panel: Allows you to easily check fluid levels and refill when necessary.


The K2700 features a 5-speed manual transmission while the K2500 features a 6-speed manual transmission. Both these transmissions offer improved fuel efficiency and durability as well as smoother gear shifts and NVH performance, resulting in an enhanced ride and overall driving comfort.

Make yourself comfortable, your K2-series already is.

A man needs room to work, and that’s true even before you get to work. No matter how big the job, the new K2700 and K2500 both have a spacious cabin that will never feel small. The seats are designed to provide maximum comfort and support for people of all shapes and sizes. More than that, we’ve also aimed to minimise driver fatigue by using extra thick cushions in the seat back and bottom of the driver’s seat. Additional comfort is provided by the full cloth seats and 3-step headrests. The ergonomic design of the crash pad and controls, the clear and informative LED gauge cluster, and intuitive layout of the centre console means that the hard work only starts when you leave the cabin.

If you don’t like it tough, tough

The K2700 has a 2 810 mm long deck and 1 630 mm wide bed, giving you abundant loading capacity. The railed truck bed has a low height of only 733 mm for easier access when loading and unloading.
