ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION
2013 Chevrolet Express Van

Remember the time before SUVs? Yeah, it is hard, but GM hopes the 2012 Chevrolet Express can continue the tradition of supplying the highest quality work or passenger full-size van on the market. Capable of being a stripped-down work vehicle for a tradesman or delivery driver, or outfitted with enough seats to comfortably fit the whole family, the latest Express van has plenty of cargo space and power for almost anyone and everything.

For the 2012 model year, Chevrolet offers three different Express van models depending on the buyer's situation: the light-duty 1500, the middle-of-the-pack 2500 and the workhorse 3500. All three models are available in two trim levels: the LS and LT.

Even though all Chevy Express models can be had in the same length, there is an option for more power in the 2500 and 3500 model vans. For the 2500, buyers can debate whether the 4.8-liter V8 has enough grunt or if it's necessary to opt for the massive 6.0-liter V8. If the larger V8 isn't enough, the Express 3500 offers the Duramax diesel and Allison transmission combination, which is typically found inside the 2500 and 3500 Silverado pickup trucks.

On the inside, the 2012 Express passenger version has enough room to seat twelve people and all their goods. Optional equipment includes Bluetooth connectivity and dealer-installed Wi-Fi capability. However, seats do not offer very much support compared to vehicles built exclusively for transportation as the Express is more for utility, not luxury.

As for the worker, the automotive marketplace has been expanding as small businesses continue to grow. Currently, Nissan, Ford and Mercedes-Benz all offer stripped-down vans, including the soon-to-be-available Ford Transit (a bigger version of the Transit Connect) or the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. It's been said that Dodge will get into the market too with a FIAT-based Doblo, expected to be marketed under the RAM brand.
