The Chevy C/K (2wd/4wd) pickups were positioned in the middle of the full-size truck category and competed most directly against Ford's F-Series.

1991[edit | edit source]

The Chevrolet C/K pickup truck line, formerly the best-selling vehicle in the General Motors stable, was available as 1/2-ton (1500 series), 3/4-ton (2500 series), 454SS, and Work Truck models. The 1500 series carried six different trim levels: Extended Cab, Fleetside, and Sportside -- with the extended cab and single cabs only available with Long Beds. The 2500 series had three trim levels: Extended Cab (in Short and Long Bed pickups), and a Fleetside Long Bed pickup truck.

The standard engine was the 4.3-liter ohv V6, which was modified for more quiet operation. Optional engines included 5.0-liter, 5.7-liter and 7.4-liter ohv V8s, and a 6.5-liter diesel V8 with or without a turbocharger. These engines were used to mate to a variety of light- and heavy-duty 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic overdrive transmissions. Four-wheel-drive trucks had a 2-speed transfer case with a floor-mounted shift lever for shift-on-the-fly operation.

1992[edit | edit source]

The C/K 2500 Regular Cab trucks received a bigger torque of 235 ft. lbs. New 1-ton 4-door Crew Cabs were unveiled at the 1992 North American International Auto Show on January 9, 1992.

1994[edit | edit source]

Since 1994, the trucks were available in 1/2-ton (1500 series), 3/4-ton (2500 series) and 1-ton (3500 series) versions, with both a wide cargo box (Fleetside) as well as a narrow cargo box (Stepside). In addition, the C/K was available with long and short cargo boxes and with regular or extended cabs. Two trim levels were offered: the base Cheyenne and the upscale Silverado.

1995[edit | edit source]

For 1995, GM's top dog received a new style rounded dash, 4-wheel anti-lock braking system, and a brake-transmission shift interlock that could prevent shifting out of Neutral unless the driver's foot is firmly on the brake pedal, a safety feature borrowed from passenger cars. Other features included new instrument and door trim panels, upgraded radios, and new contoured seats. The console that came with the optional bucket seats had a pivoting writing surface, map pocket, cassette storage and could be used as a mobile work station.

1996

1996 started the first year of the Vortec engines, eliminating the previous Throttle Body Injection (TBI). Extended cab models were also given a single suicide door on the passenger side.

1999[edit | edit source]

The C/K 3500 Crew Cab trucks now came in either Short Bed or Long Bed sizes.
