This light commercial vehicle was relaunched back in 2019, with Kia Philippines also being reintroduced under the management of Ayala Corporation. The Kia K2500 is made available in different modifications such as a dropside, single cab, a closed van, and many more. There's also a 4x4 option that is made available on select variants, therefore heightening the overall capability of the K2500. With a maximum payload capacity of 1,635 kilograms, for the Cab and Chassis variant, you can expect a decent level of cargo-hauling capabilities with this model. The closed van, which is the heaviest among the variants will come with a maximum payload of 1,235 kg.

So far, it is one of the only models in the Philippines that feature a 4x4 system that allows the vehicle to go beyond the realm of the road and lets it traverse more uncharted areas with less forgiving terrain. Otherwise, the vehicle can be configured with a 4x2 system that gets the job done just by sending power to the rear wheels.
