Chevrolet Express: A Passenger Van With Impressive Driving Dynamics and Versatility

The Chevrolet Express offers a lot of space, which is important considering it’s Chevy’s full-size passenger van. The Express has almost four decades of engineering, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere. It’s the typical passenger van, fitting up to 15 people comfortably and perfect for anyone with a big family. It’s also great for sports teams, community groups, or commercial use.

The Express does more than just provide room. It also had a big powertrain, and provides first-rate driving dynamics. Its corporate twin is the GMC Savana, and both have great options when it comes to passenger van transporting any cargo safely.


It all started in 1996 when the name Sportvan was changed to Express. Compared to Ford and Dodge, the Express offered new body styling, power plants, and advanced ergonomics that made it stand out. The main change happened in 2003 when Chevy unleashed AWD for the first time and three new engine options: a V6 with 200 hp, 5.3L V8 with 295 hp, and 6.0L V8 with 300 hp, all in a standard four-speed automatic.


In 2007 the V8 was improved to produce around 323 hp; the V6 being discontinued. In 2009 the interior received side curtain airbags and stability control added for better driving capabilities. 2010 saw a 5.3L engine able to produce 310 hp, and a six-speed transmission available in a 6.0L V8. The turbodiesel V8 came in 2011, where the Express got a 4.8L V8 engine.


The Chevrolet Express 1500 is a model that is new to the Chevy auto market. It features a 5.3L V8 engine that produces 310 hp. It comes with a four-speed automatic transmission and standard RWD. AWD is also available. The modern exterior makes this passenger van unique.
