Model Highlights

The Chevrolet Express Passenger Van comes in mid-duty 2500 Series and heavy-duty 3500 Series models. There are also regular (135-inch) and extended (155-inch) wheelbase versions, with seating space for eight, 12 or 15 people. Towing is also a strength for the Express Van models, with trailer ratings ranging up to 9,900 pounds.

There are four different engines offered in the Express vans. Most of these vans come standard either with a 4.8L V8 that makes 280 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque or a 5.3L V8 making 310 horsepower and 334 pound-feet. Separately, there's a flex-fuel version of the 5.3L than can run on a fuel mix of 85 percent ethanol. And for those needing the most hauling power in a gasoline engine, the 6.0L V8 makes 324 horsepower and 373 pound-feet. Across the entire lineup, the Express comes with a 31-gallon fuel tank.

On some models, a Duramax turbo-diesel V8 engine that makes 260 horsepower and a tow-friendly 525 pound-feet of torque is available. The engine comes with a diesel particulate filter system and can start in temperatures as low as -20 degrees F without an engine block heater. All 2500 and 3500 models come with a heavy-duty 6-speed automatic.

The Express has true body-on-frame truck construction, with a ladder-type frame plus tubular cross members for better torsional stiffness and tapered frame rails for safety. It rides on an independent front suspension and rear leaf-spring suspension, with a stabilizer bar in front and a locking rear differential available on all models. Steering is via recirculating-ball gear. And in all Express vans, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with dynamic rear proportioning adapt to loads and provide secure stops. GM's StabiliTrak electronic stability control also helps provide safety and prevent skids in sudden maneuvers, while all models include driver and front passenger air bags.

Both of the Express 2500 and 3500 grades are offered in LS and LT models. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, auxiliary power outlets, a driver information center, and an AM/FM radio, while LT models step up to rear air conditioning, a rear auxiliary heater, remote keyless entry and power windows. Options include 6-way power-adjustable driver and passenger seats, remote start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and an improved audio system with CD and MP3 capability and a USB port. In all models there's a choice between vinyl and cloth upholstery.

Options include a navigation radio, rear vision camera and ultrasonic rear park assist, with the rear vision view shown on the rearview mirror. 3500 models include various other upgrades, such as a higher-capacity battery and alternator, as well as a heavy-duty transmission with external oil cooler.

Model News

For 2015, Chevrolet has discontinued the light-duty Express 1500 line, including all-wheel-drive models. Express Cargo vans no longer feature a driver's side swing-out cargo door, and two new stereos are offered.

Value Writeup

In a market that's evolving toward "world" models and lighter builds, the Chevrolet Express vans keep their body-on-frame design oriented for the U.S. market, with better towing capacity than most of the competition. Those interested in long-distance towing or fleet use may want to jump straight to the Duramax diesel version, which allows a GVWR of 9,900 pounds and a tow rating of 9,700 pounds.


Strong set of V8 engines; fits up to 15; tough truck construction; high towing and weight ratings; available diesel engine

Crash Test Rating


Overall Rating: Not Rated

Overall Frontal Barrier Crash Rating: Not Rated

Overall Side Crash Rating: Not Rated

Overall Rollover Rating: * * *
Dynamic Test Result: No Tip
Risk of Rollover: 29.2%

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.

Recall Information


Mfg's Report Date:
APR 01, 2016


Potential Number Of Units Affected:

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana incomplete vehicles equipped with a 159 inch wheel base manufactured August 2, 2013, to January 30, 2016. The affected vehicles were shipped to final stage manufacturers without a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."

Without a TPMS, the driver would not be alerted if one or more tires became under inflated. Driving with under inflated tires increases the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install the hardware and software necessary to equip the vehicles with a TPMS, free of charge. The recall began on May 25, 2016. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 15819.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
