    i think is a renewed version of the k5 and the people at Chevy changed the name, if you detail a little de 2 door tahoe is the reduced version of the 4door one, that is also a reduced version of the suburban from 93 to today, or not?

    92 -94 it was a Full size blazer, K1500 blazer, whatever you want to call it.

    95, when teh tahoe came out, started the 2 door tahoe name, and it continued til 99.

    In terms of the fourms, it falls under the IFS and new body style rigs forum.

    In terms of buying one, the 92-94 had a different interior than teh 95-99 ones, 95-99 had drivers air bag, the 97-99's had passenger air bags, and the 96-99 had the vortec motor as opposed to the TBI in the 92-95. All the changes are the same as when they changed on teh tahoe/suburban/trucks.

    Tahoe used to be the name of a model of s10 pickups. like an "s10-tahoe"
    kind of like the old "k5 silverados"

    gm does seem to have a shortage of names.

    heck from 88-98, they had no name for the chevy pickup.

    the "C/K? The "W/T"? at least the GMC sierra name is common.

    If you are looking for pics - here you go. This was my '99. last year that they made a 2 door. great truck, but not nearly as useful to me as my '90 'Burb. Sorry that it's so big, but i can't resize pics at work.

    C/k designations have been around since the 70's. C = 2wd k=4wd

    10= 1/2 ton
    20 = 3/4 ton
    30 = 1 ton
    therefore, a C20 is a 2wd 3/4 ton, and so on.

    Since a blazer was a smaller 1/2 ton vehicle, i can only surmise that thats where the K5 badge comes from.

    GMC used the same designations, except they were 1500/2500/3500

    W/T = work truck (i think) just a deignation that gm put ontrucks usually sold to fleets, or to contractors and such. they came with little or no options to bring te price down.(ie no air, no carpet, bench seat, white paint, no real exterior trim, etc)

    Sierra, high sierra, silverado, tahoe, cheyenne, etc. were all essentially trim package levels that came on the C or K trucks, that got the names recycled to be used on the newer trucks when they decided to actually name them.

    I understand that part, but the part that I dont understand....

    k5 "Blazer"
    the c10/20 and k10/20 "suburban"
    the c10/20 and k10/20 (unknown pickup name)

    Just like GMC had the Jimmy and Suburban, but also had the Sierra. What was the equavalant name to the "sierra" on the Chevy line?

    Silverado for 4wd and cheyenne for 2wd i think. like I said above, these were really just trim level packages, as were the sierra and high sierra names for the GMC's. A base level 4wd GMC pickup was just a K15.
