2013 Chevy Express vs. 2013 Ford E-Series

2013-Chevrolet-Express1-1024x681When you need a full-size van that can handle anything and everything, the 2013 Chevy Express is more than up for the job. Whether you need to transport passengers or carry tools and equipment, there’s an Express that fits the bill. And with Chevy’s 5-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, you can rest assured that your Chevy Express will be ready for the task at hand for years to come. The standard Cargo and Passenger models offer enough power and convenience to get the job done, but there is also a plethora of options for upgrading. Drivers in the Elgin and Schaumburg area who have done some research on the Chevy Express may have come across the E-Series, a line of similarly priced full-size vans from Ford. Here’s how they compare:

Power When You Need It

When it comes to tough jobs and heavy loads, you need the most power you can get. That’s why the Chevy Express comes standard with a 4.8L gas/ethanol V8 engine that produces 280 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, outdoing the E-Series’ 4.6L V8 at 225 hp and 286 lb-ft of torque. That’s a difference you won’t forget.

Features are its Forte

Sometimes you need more than just the bare essentials, and that’s why the 2013 Chevy Express Passenger Van offers features that aren’t available on the E-Series. With the Express, features like a passenger airbag on/off switch, front head curtain airbags, and side head curtain airbags come standard; these crucial safety features aren’t even available on the E-Series. And amenities like rear window defogger, power driver seat, power passenger seat, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, leather wrapped steering wheel, passenger visor vanity mirror, and front reading lamps ? all of which are available on the Express ? are nowhere to be found with the Ford. You’ll also get standard features like an onboard handsfree communications system and anti-theft system with the 2013 Express ? not so with the E-Series. When it comes to the best features and the best value, the Chevy Express wins hands down.
