Built for comfort, built to perform and built to last - K2700 is Australia's most versatile light truck. With loads of room out back and packed with features inside, K2700 provides exceptional value for money.

The aerodynamic exterior and comfortable, modern interior, help take the fatigue out of long haul driving and set you apart from the competition. Ergonomic seating and advanced noise-reduction technology provide a comfortable and whisper-quiet ride.
At the business-end of things, a sturdy 2.7 litre diesel engine delivers efficient power and fuel economy. By providing maximum torque for when it's needed most, K2700 helps you take hard work, head on. Great economy starts with the K2700’s efficient diesel engine. Producing a highly impressive 172Nm of torque at just 2400 rpm, it is an engine designed to pull the maximum load whilst retaining fuel efficiency.
