Pros: Huge interior; mechanically simple; attractively priced

Cons: Outdated design; outdated interior; poor gas mileage

What's New: The Chevrolet Express Cargo is unchanged for the 2014 model year.

You can get a Chevrolet Express in two ways: a passenger model, offered with seating for up to 15 people, or a cargo version. This overview applies to the Express Cargo, which includes only two front seats, doesn't offer rear side windows and boasts an unfinished cargo area.

The 2014 Chevrolet Express Cargo comes in three grades. The base-level Express 1500 comes only with a standard wheelbase. Drivers who need larger engines and more capabilities can step up to the Express 2500 and 3500, which boast increased towing and payload capacities, larger engines and an available extended wheelbase.

Shoppers who choose an Express 1500 can choose between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The Express 1500's standard engine is a 195-horsepower 4.3-liter V6, while a 310-hp 5.3-liter V8 is optional. 

For drivers who need to carry larger loads, Chevrolet offers the Express 2500 and 3500. Those models are available only with rear-wheel drive, but they come in two sizes. Standard models can carry up to 238 cu ft of cargo, while extended models offer a whopping 284.4 cu ft.

The Express 2500 and 3500 also improve on the Express 1500's engine choices. The 2500 and 3500 feature a standard 4.8-liter V8, which makes 280 hp. Drivers can also step up to a muscular 323-hp 6.0-liter V8 or, for those who need the most capacity possible, a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8. That engine makes just 260 hp, but it produces a whopping 525 lb-ft of torque.

Inside an Express, you shouldn't expect to find many creature comforts. The vans are bare-bones work trucks with only a few standard features. Fortunately, shoppers can add many comforts from the options list, from a remote engine starter to a reversing camera and park assist. 

A base-level 2014 Chevrolet Express 1500 Cargo starts at around $28,500 with shipping. An Express 2500 Cargo starts around $30,000, while an Express 3500 Cargo is closer to $33,200. Long-wheelbase versions of the 2500 and 3500 add around $800 to the purchase price. Rivals include the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Ford E-Series, RAM ProMaster and Nissan NV.
