Chevrolet first introduced its C/K series of pickup trucks in 1988. These trucks were available with so many different comfort, convenience and powertrain options that they could be tailored to suit the needs of just about any truck owner. One of the trim levels for these trucks, the Cheyenne, was available as a trim level from 1992 until 1998. The company ceased production of its C/K series in 1999 when it introduced the Silverado.
Throughout their production, the Cheyenne trim levels of the C/K 1500 series had a 4.3-liter V6 engine. It had a bore of 4.00 inches and a stroke of 3.48 inches.
These trucks had different power capabilities depending on the year. In the early 1990s, the trucks featured a compression ratio of 9.1 to 1 and were capable of producing 165 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. In 1995, they featured a compression ratio of 9.3 to 1 and could produce 150 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque. After 1995, they had a compression ratio of 9.2 to 1 and could produce 200 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
Brakes and Suspension
From 1992 until 1996, these trucks featured four disc brakes, two of which were ventilated, and an anti-lock brake system. They had a wishbone front suspension with a stabilizer bar and a rear suspension that had a stabilizer bar and leaf springs.
From 1997 until 1998, they had four disc brakes, two of which were ventilated, and an anti-lock brake system. They had an independent, torsion beam front suspension with a stabilizer bar and torsion springs and a rigid, beam rear suspension with a stabilizer bar and leaf springs.
The C/K 1500 Cheyenne trucks from 1992 until 1998 had a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 lbs. Depending on the production year, they had a curb weight of 3,829 to 4,127 lbs. They all had a 25-gallon fuel tank and had an EPA-estimated fuel economy of between 15 to 16 mpg in the city and 20 to 21 mpg on the highway.
