City-friendly road manners; strong fuel economy for a cargo van; reasonable pricing
Very few style tweaks distinguish it from the NV200; a little smaller inside than it needs to be
The City Express is all new for the 2015 model year.
The City Express LT is our pick of the lineup. For only a little more money than the base-level LS model, it offers several important convenience features such as remote keyless entry, power locks and cruise control. It also comes standard with park assist, which is always a feature that's highly appreciated by anyone who's spent time behind the wheel of a cargo van. Find a Chevrolet City Express for sale
The 2015 Chevrolet City Express is offered in two trim levels: the base-level LS and the upscale LT.
The City Express LS ($22,900) includes only the basics. It has traction control, for example, and anti-lock brakes, but you won't get power mirrors, power locks or keyless entry. Other standard features include air conditioning, power windows, vinyl floor covering, six D-ring cargo hooks in back, side airbags and a 2-speaker sound system.
Given the small price jump to the LT ($24,500), you won't find too many additional features in the higher trim level. It does add a few more convenience items, however, such as power locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control, power mirrors, Bluetooth and rear park assist.
The City Express also includes a range of options, including deep-tinted rear glass, a navigation system, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, a USB port for music and a backup camera.

Ford Transit Connect -- The Transit Connect is more expensive than the City Express, but it boasts better highway fuel economy, a larger interior and better materials. It's also offered with two wheelbases.
RAM C/V Tradesman -- Essentially a Dodge Grand Caravan with a cargo area instead of seats, the C/V Tradesman has the most interior room of any smaller-sized, base-level van. It's also the most powerful. Fuel economy suffers, though, and the van doesn't offer side-hinged rear doors.
