Chevy Express Engine Options

2022 Chevrolet Express Cargo Van

2022 Chevrolet Express Cargo Van

The Express has three engine options, all of which pack a substantial punch. The base engine is a 4.3L V-6 that churns out 276 horsepower and 298 lb-ft of torque. If you frequently haul heavy loads and would prefer a bit more power, you can step up to the 6.6L V-8 with 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. The final engine option is a 2.8L diesel with 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The diesel engine will be the most fuel-efficient option of the three.

Express Towing and Hauling

If you’re regularly transporting goods to your store or customers, you’ll be happy to learn that the Express offers solid towing and payload limits. This van can tow up to 10,000 pounds, which is enough to cope with a decent-sized trailer. In the back, it can haul a maximum payload of 4,280 pounds.

Express Exterior Dimensions

Whether you opt for an Express cargo or passenger van, there are two configurations you can choose from. The regular wheelbase models have a wheelbase of 135 inches, while the extended wheelbase vans have a wheelbase of 155 inches. Vans with a regular wheelbase are about 224 inches long, while the extended wheelbase models come in at 244 inches. It would be best to consider whether you require the added space offered by the extended wheelbase model often enough, given the additional expense it brings.

Express Cargo Interior

In the Express Cargo van, there’s seating for two people up front. With over 40 inches of headroom and 41 inches of legroom, you shouldn’t find it difficult to get comfortable. Behind the seats, you’ll find 239.4 cubic feet of storage space for your cargo. The cargo area has a height of over 55 inches and more than 4 feet between the wheels, so you shouldn’t have trouble loading bulky items for transportation.

If you need more space, the Express 2500 with an extended wheelbase has 284 cubic feet of storage space at the rear. The height and width dimensions of the cargo area remain the same. The extended wheelbase option in the Express 3500 creates an even larger cargo area, with a capacity of 319 cubic feet.

Express Passenger Interior

The Express passenger van can carry 12 passengers across four rows with a regular wheelbase. The legroom and headroom measurements are the same for the front row as in the cargo van. Passengers in the second, third, and fourth rows get approximately 38 inches of headroom and 36.5 inches of legroom. Passenger vans with the extended wheelbase have their capacity boosted to 15. These vans add a fifth row of seating at the rear.

Infotainment and Safety Tech

The primary purpose of Chevy’s cargo and passenger vans is getting on with the job at hand, so the infotainment features on offer are slimmed down considerably from other vehicles you may be familiar with. That said, you can still take advantage of some important standard features during your drive. Each Express van has a Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing you to stay in touch with work colleagues at the office, no matter where you may be. They also feature an AM/FM radio and two speakers at the front of the cab.

Optional upgrades include Bluetooth connectivity, forward collision warning, and cruise control. Remote keyless entry and lane departure warning are also offered in the passenger van.

Express Van Trims and Pricing

If you’re choosing the cargo van, you can decide between the Express 2500 and the Express 3500. The main difference is that the Express 3500 includes a reinforced frame that can be paired with several work packages, such as the ambulance package.

The passenger van is also available with both the Express 2500 and the Express 3500. Each van has a 1LS and 1LT trim for you to select. The 1LS is the more basic of the two, offering vinyl bucket seats up front, vinyl floor coverings, and manual air conditioning. Moving up to the 1LT gets you cloth upholstery and carpeted flooring with rubber mats.

There’s a wide range of additional packages for you to consider. Some of these include the $100 Cold Climate package, which adds an engine block heater to your van, and the $2,880 Communications package. This package features a larger V-8 engine, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Bluetooth connectivity. The Enhanced Convenience package may be useful if you regularly haul heavy loads. It includes additional trailering equipment as well as the V-8 engine.

The MSRP for the Express van starts at around $33,000. Depending on the optional upgrades you choose, you could pay as much as $42,000 for a van with a larger engine and optional infotainment equipment. Choosing a model with an extended wheelbase also adds around $1,900 to your bill.

We hope that our overview of Chevy’s Express vans has helped you decide which one would meet the needs of your business. If you regularly need to shuttle large numbers of passengers to a hotel, conference, or another event, you won’t find a better option than the 15-seater Express 3500.
