1995 Chevrolet K3500 Review

Gas guzzling full-size truck with an excellent safety rating.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 1995 Chevrolet K3500 is a workhorse with dual rear wheels and four-wheel drive options; it’s sure to do a great job on and off the road. The low gas mileage is due to the truck’s large size and engine. Safety features, which improved this year, make it an all-around good choice in a full-size truck.
