1987 GM V25 Pickup Truck 3/4 ton

I bought this vehicle for its frame. The title says it's a V25. What does V25 mean. I've only seen K20. Thanks.

GM changed the nomenclature in 87'. R is 2WD and V is 4x4.

Re: 1987 GM V25 Pickup Truck 3/4 ton

This thread is from a long time back, but it left me wondering.

Why "25"? I've only heard of 10, 20, and 30, on the R/V trucks. Was 25 really a thing?

Keeping the trend going for dredging up old posts...

GMCs were 15, 25, 35
Chevys: 10, 20, 30

Same everything as far as capacity...just trim.

Marketing magic.

Need a perceived boost?

Go from "20" to "25".

Or better yet - "2500".

Cracks me up that a "truck joint" like LMC still doesn't list R's and V's.
