    What is the difference between the K5 and the K10? My Blazer is a K10 but nobody in Sweden seems to know the difference...

    I thinks you're wrong. Mine is a K10 and it is a Blazer.

    what does your fender badge say? it should say K5. Seems ive read on titles, etc. it says k10 because its designated a half ton. Even in the GM production paperwork it is labeled as a K10, however it was badged a k5. GM insanity lol.

    They're called K5 Blazers..... They are titled as K10 trucks, as in 1/2 ton trucks... To throw a wrench in the system, my Wife's truck is a V10..... Go figure, but it says K5 on the side!

    Short answer: K/5 is a badge on the outside of Blazer in some years.

    K/10 refers to the power train (4WD 1/2ton) which is shared between Blazers and Suburbans and pickups. Some people also use it to just mean pickups.

    More detail (and the scoop on the R/V and 1500-2500-3500 switch) on my web page
