About GMC C3500
The GMC C3500 is one model of the fourth-generation C/K pickup truck series. It has a payload of up to 1 ton. The C3500 is manufactured by General Motors(GM) and marketed by the Chevrolet and GMC divisions of General Motors from 1988 to the 2000 model year. The automotive design of the C3500 is Donald Wood. As the final version of the C/K model line, the auto is mainly assembled in the Arlington Assembly in Arlington, Texas; the Fort Wayne Assembly in Roanoke, Indiana; the Flint Truck Assembly in Flint, Michigan; and the Silao Assembly in Silao, Mexico.
Initially, the GMC C3500 was manufactured as a full-size pickup truck and chassis cab, later upgraded to a full-size SUV. When it comes to the car body shape, there are many kinds according to different model years: 2-door pickup truck, 2/3-door extended cab pickup truck, 4-door crew cab pickup truck, and 2-door/4-door chassis cab. C3500 adopted the GM GMT400 platform, which was the first GMT designation for the C (RWD) and K (4WD/AWD) full-size trucks and SUVs. For the regular cab standard, the distance between front and back wheels is 117.5 in (2,984 mm); and C3500 is 194.5 in (4,940 mm) in length, 76.8 in (1,951 mm) in width and 73.2 in (1,859 mm) in height.

Produced for over 10 years, the GMC C3500 underwent a great number of minor revisions on its accessory and classic parts throughout its production. In 1990, the four sealed-beam headlamps were replaced with white-lens composite headlamps. Then the body parts of the auto saw few changes, introducing front bucket seats for extended-cab pickups in 1993. Later in the 1995 model year, the car revised and enlarged its side-view mirror for more view during the ride. In 1997, the dashboard had a minor revision to accommodate a passenger-side airbag. Another critical change is placed in the C3500 parts of the engine. When the auto model was launched in 1988, it was armed with a five-engine powertrain. Later it introduced a turbodiesel V8, expanded to a 6.5-liter engine, and in 1993, a lighter-duty 700R4 was upgraded with electronic controls.
The GMC C3500 has been long acclaimed for its rock-solid quality and reliable performance since its debut in 1988. Now years have passed and it still takes up a room in the automobile industry. Thanks to its generational upgrades throughout the years, its high-quality parts have contributed much to helping provide customers with a comfortable and pleasant driving experience. Every minor step in its revision matters in its way to a star product of the GMC.
