In 1994, Chevrolet manufactured the C/K2500 3/4-ton pickup. Within the C/K2500 model, there was heavy-duty and standard-duty, which is commonly referred to as light-duty. The light-duty models were not as structurally strong as the HD, so some of the capacities are lower.
The light-duty C/K2500 came with either a 4.3 LV-6 or a 5.0 L V-8. The 4.3 L produced 165 horsepower and 236 foot-pounds of torque, while the 5 L produced 175 horsepower and 270 foot-pounds of torque.
Because of the structural and mechanical differences, the light-duty 2500 towed less than the HD versions. The four-wheel-drive models tow up to 5,000 lbs., while the two-wheel-drive versions could tow up to 6,000 lbs.
Payload is the total weight that the truck's chassis can bear, with passengers and cargo. The two-wheel-drive models could handle up to 2,934 lbs. of payload, while the four-wheel-drive models could handle 2,563 lbs.
The 1994 light-duty Chevy trucks got 11 to 15 mpg in the city and 16 to 20 mpg on the highway, depending on options selected. All of these trucks had a 34-gallon fuel tank.
