Recognize this Chevy?

October 6th, 2017 by

We’re willing to bet that at some point in time, you’ve ridden in a work truck that you didn’t even realize was a work truck. For example, have you ever had to hop on a shuttle from the airport to go to a rental car center? You probably didn’t realize it, or even really give it a second thought, but there’s a good chance you may have been riding in a Chevrolet Express Passenger van. Or what about when the electrician comes out to your house and has his van that’s fully equipped and loaded down with all sorts of interesting looking tools and gadgets – have you ever wondered if his work truck is related to your very own Equinox, parked right next to each other in your driveway? And what about those huge trucks you see barreling down the highway, loaded down with food or furniture or a million other items that need to be transported cross-country? Bet you’ve never thought that monster truck shared a name with your little Chevy Bolt.

It goes to show that Chevy work trucks are ubiquitous – present in our lives, every single day; we just tend not to take notice of them until we need one. This is why if you’re looking for work trucks for sale in Cincinnati, you may have no idea where to even begin your search – it’s not as if you’ve been visiting dealerships and noticing their commercial fleet while signing a lease on your own personal car. While a visit to almost any Chevy dealership should yield a good on-site inventory of commercial vehicles for you to explore, it’s best to get started shopping by knowing a little bit about the line-up of Chevy commercial work trucks.

The Chevrolet Express Passenger Van

Like I mentioned earlier, you’re probably more familiar with the Chevrolet Express Passenger Van than you even realize. With seating for either 12 or 15 passengers, this is the commercial vehicle you’ve been in if you’ve ever had to get from “here” to “there” – most likely with a few people you’ve never met before.

Of course, the Express Passenger Van isn’t just used for airport pick-ups and deliveries, it’s also commonly used to shuttle children from camps or day care. In fact, any time there is a medium-sized group of people needing to travel together, they just may do so in a Chevy Express Passenger Van. The Express Passenger Vans are great not only for their copious amounts of seating, but also because the vans have been cleverly designed for easy loading and unloading with plenty for doors in both the rear and on the sides, so passengers don’t have to worry about making an awkward entrance or exit.  Equipped with power windows and door locks and even available with air conditioning for the rear passengers, the Chevy Express Passenger Van is the work truck you want to be shuttled around in – no matter how quick the journey is.

The Chevrolet Express Cargo Van

Ever wonder how utility workers are able to get and get the job done so efficiently? Well, it’s because if they are working out of the Chevrolet Express Cargo Van, they have everything they need right in their work truck. Chevy touts their Express Cargo Vans as ideal for plumbers, electricians, and contractors, but that’s not to say that the van is limited to only serving those professions. In fact, the Chevy Express Cargo is extremely customizable, which makes it ideal for any number of jobs.

Not only are things like ladder racks and cargo storage features available on the Chevy Express Cargo Van, it can also be equipped with five-passenger seating so that the whole team can come out to get the job done. There are also two auxiliary and one 1200-volt power outlets to keep the team charged up and available, no matter how long they are on the road for.

Available in two models – the 2500 Express Cargo Van and the 3500 Express Cargo Van, both offer powerful engines and the ability to haul serious amounts of payload. The 2500 Express Cargo Van runs off of either a 4.8-liter V8, a 6.0-liter V8 or a 2.8 Diesel engine and can carry a payload of up to 3,234 pounds. The 3500 Express Cargo Van offers the same engine options but carries an increased payload of up to 4,192. Clearly, no job is too big for the family of Chevy Express Cargo Vans.

The Chevrolet Express Cutaway Van

Okay, maybe it’s not exactly true that there’s no job too big for the Express Cargo Vans – and that’s where the Chevrolet Express Cutaway Vans come in. Chevy designed the Express Cutaway Van to be ideal for a variety of uses but some of the more interesting (and helpful!) uses include using the Express Cutaway Van as an upfit for ambulance and rescue vehicles as well as for school buses.

Also available in two models, the Chevrolet 3500 Express Cutaway Van is powered by either a 4.8-liter V8 or a 6.0-liter V8 engine, getting a maximum horsepower of 285 and 342 respectively. With a gross combination weight rating of up to 20,000 pounds, the 3500 Express Cutaway Van is bested only by the 4500 Express Cutaway Van, which has the same gross combination weight rating but exceeds the 3500’s gross vehicle weight rating or 12,300 pounds by 1,900 pounds. Seriously strong for the toughest jobs out there, the Express Cutaway Vans are the ones we often rely on when times get tough.
