    The KIA K2-series provides business owners with reliable motoring versatility resulting in a tough and flexible business resource. Built to carry any load, the K2-series KIA operates as a K2700 chassis cab, K2700 dropside, K2700 tipper and a K2500 dropside with its hardworking diesel engines powering all four options. The K2-series is designed to simplify load carrying. With the option to engage single or double rear wheels on the K2700 derivatives, the double rear wheels provides added toughness and their 12” diameter lowers the bed making loading that much easier, while the single rear wheel option with a 14” diameter (matching the front wheels) offers a faster smoother ride.

    The K2700 is equipped with a 2.7 litre 4 cylinder, J2 diesel engine, and delivers 62kW of power @ 4,150 rpm’s and 168 Nm of torque able to carry a weighty load. The K2500 is equipped with a 2.5 litre 4-cylinder turbo charged engine and delivers 96kW of power @ 3,800 rpm’s and 255 Nm of torque @ 1,500-3,500 rpm. The suspension, with wishbone stabiliser in front and rigid axle in the rear, supports heavy loads and provides cushioning for rough road conditions. The K2-series also comes fitted with a Load Sensing Proportioning Valve (LSPV) which distributes braking power to the rear when required, for added braking stability.
