Chevrolet has been providing dependable commercial vehicle options to business owners for quite some time, and the bowtie brand happens to be very tuned in to this particular market and its unique needs. With a wide range of vehicles including dump trucks, low cab forward trucks, and vans, Chevy has become the top rated manufacturer of commercial vehicles in the United States. The brand is already known so well for dependability, reliability, power, and convenience, and that shines through in every commercial truck and van Chevrolet offers in this year’s lineup. One of the best selling commercial vehicles from Chevy also happens to be a top choice for small business owners in particular. With a wide range of application options, and more versatility than it lets on, the Chevrolet Express van is helping small business owners around the world succeed.

The Chevy Express Van

First introduced back in 1996, the Express is a full-size van that is typically sold as a commercial vehicle to business owners. From time to time, the van is purchased as a personal vehicle, typically for individuals with larger than average families. While this particular application is a rarity, it does show how versatile the Chevrolet Express van actually is. After twenty years of success on the market, the Chevy Express became one of the last American designed full-size vans in the world, after 2016. Next to its mechanical twin, the GMC Savana, the Chevy Express is one of the final American-made gems left in the full-size commercial van segment. With both cargo and passenger options, the Chevrolet Express is the chameleon of commercial vehicles, and has more than proven its worth for small and medium sized businesses across the nation.

Before we discover more about the Express Cargo, Express Passenger, and the smaller City Express vans, let’s take a brief look at what makes Chevy’s commercial van lineup so unique.

  • Towing: With up to 10,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity, the 2016 Chevrolet Express delivers exceptional strength for anyone who needs it. With an innovative Tow/Haul mode, drivers will experience a dual-mode shift program in the automatic transmission, for more accuracy and enhanced performance while towing.
  • Engine: It should comes as no surprise that the Chevrolet Express van lineup is powerful, but it may surprise some people to know that it is available with a diesel engine. The optional Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 engine boosts the van’s already noteworthy power, and propels it as the leader of its segment for the most powerful diesel van available.
  • Transmission: All Chevy Express vans come equipped with a standard Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmission, which includes Tap-Up/Tap-Down Driver Shift Control for added control and convenience.
  • Braking: Whether you are transporting a van full of cargo, or fifteen passengers to a wedding, the included auto grade braking system slows the Express down automatically, with the help of the engine. This advanced system allows for total braking confidence, without having to worry about putting unnecessary strain on the braking system.
