   The new Kia general utility truck was first publicly revealed in 2013. As of 2014 it is designated simply as the Kia 5 ton. It is worth noting that the Kia Motors is the sole supplier of military wheeled vehicles to the South Korean armed forces. The new 5 t truck was developed alongside a similar 2.5 t truck. Both of these truck have similar design. The 2.5 t version has a less powerful engine and is slightly shorter. In the future these new trucks might replace the Kia KM250 and KM500 series.

   Unlike the older vehicles with a classic American military truck appearance, the new Kia has modern looks. This new military truck has a payload capacity of 5 000 kg. Its main role is transportation of troops and cargo over all types of roads and off-road. Vehicle is fitted with drop-sides and drop-tailgate. The removable slated body walls serve as troop seats when folded down. It can carry about 20 fully-equipped troops. The cargo area is covered with removable bows and canvas cover. This military truck can tow trailers and artillery pieces.

   The cab accommodates driver and co-driver. The cab is tilted forward for engine access and maintenance.

   The Kia 5 ton uses a number of commercially available automotive components. This military truck is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine, developing 300 hp. This engine complies with EURO 5 emission requirements. Engine is mated to an automatic transmission. Vehicle has a 6x6 configuration with a full-time all-wheel drive. It is claimed that this truck has excellent off-road mobility. A central tyre inflation system and run flat tyres are proposed as an option.
