Overview

What's New in the 2017 Chevrolet Express 3500?

The big 6.6-liter diesel engine is dropped this year, replaced by a smaller, less powerful 2.8-liter turbodiesel expected to be offered later in the 2017 model year. Passenger vans lose some equipment packages, and the third and fourth fuel tank configurations are dropped. A spray-in cargo liner is new this year. See the 2017 Chevrolet Express 3500 models for sale near you

Which Express 3500 is the Best?

We'd probably buy a competitor's van before we chose the Express, but if we had to get the Chevy, we'd go for an entry-level LS model or a fairly basic Cargo version with sparse options. Given the improvement rival vans have made, we think affordability is essentially the Express' only trump card. Find a Chevrolet Express 3500 for sale

 

How Much Does a 2017 Chevrolet Express 3500 Cost?

The 2017 Chevrolet Express Van 3500 is offered in three trim levels: a base-level Cargo model for hauling and LS or LT trims for carrying passengers.

Opt for the Express Cargo ($35,260), and you shouldn't expect many standard features. The van includes only the basics, such as vinyl seating, manual air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary plug. There's no CD player, no OnStar telematics system and no power locks, power windows or power mirrors. However, each of those features and more can be added as options.

Choose the Express LS ($34,335), and you get a few more features. The most important one is seats, as the Express LS comes standard with 12 seats and offers 15-passenger seating capacity as an option. The Express LS also includes power door locks and cruise control.

Drivers who opt for the upscale Express LT ($36,160) get even more standard equipment. Such features include cloth upholstery, a compass, remote keyless entry, rear air conditioning and exterior chrome accents.

In addition to the vans' standard equipment, many options are available. They range from basic items such as power mirrors, power windows and a USB port for music to high-end features including a backup camera, a newly updated Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, a navigation system and rear park assist. Unfortunately, the Express' diesel powertrain carries a big premium over gasoline models: about $4,000.

Safety

Is the 2017 Chevrolet Express 3500 a Safe Car?

All Chevrolet Express models include side-curtain airbags, front-side airbags, anti-lock brakes and stability control. Options include a backup camera and rear parking sensors, while passenger models feature GM's OnStar system as standard equipment.

Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash-tested the Express 3500.

Competition

2017 Chevrolet Express 3500 vs the competition

2017 Ford Transit -- The Ford Transit offers better gas mileage than the Express and stronger capabilities. It also offers a more attractive starting price for budget-conscious van shoppers and better handling.

2017 Nissan NV -- The truck-based Nissan NV feels like an updated version of the Express, touting a more modern cabin, newer features and additional capabilities thanks to multiple wheelbases and an available high-roof body style, but no diesel option.

2017 RAM ProMaster -- With fuel-efficient V6 engines and a low load floor, RAM's latest take on the full-size van boasts especially extensive capabilities, whether you're hauling people or large items.

Used Mercedes-Benz Sprinter -- The Sprinter offers impressive capability and efficiency in a considerably more modern package than the Express 3500, but it's also more expensive, so you may want to consider a used model.
