The flexibility that the 2021 Chevy Express Van offers is certainly one of its greatest strengths and can definitely help your business.

While you might think that the engine matters most in something like a sports car or a hard-working pickup, it is important in any vehicle. With the 2021 Chevy Express Van, choosing the right engine is vital to ensuring your vehicle is strong enough to handle anything you need it to do. This van is going to be an important part of your business, after all, so you should expect it to be able to work hard. There are three different engines available, and they are offered on both the Passenger and the Cargo models.
The standard engine is a 4.3L V6 gas engine, which offers up to 276 hp and 298 lb-ft of torque for solid overall performance and up to 7,400 lbs. of towing capacity. If you want more power with a gas engine, then there is an available 6.6L V8 engine, which delivers up to 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque for excellent performance and a towing capacity of up to 10,000 lbs. Finally, a 2.8L 4-cylinder Duramax Turbo Diesel engine is available, which provides 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.
In addition to your choices in different engines and trim levels, at least for the Passenger model, you can also choose between two different base designs. Much like the Chevy Silverado HD pickup, the 2021 Chevy Express Van is available in either a 2500 or 3500 configuration, which indicates the kind of weight it can handle. Both of these options are available for the Passenger and Cargo vans, so you do not have to limit your choices.
The 2500 Passenger van is available with either a regular or extended wheelbase, and it offers a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of up to 8,600 lbs. This number covers all of the possible weight on the vehicle's frame, including the vehicle's weight, upfits, passengers, and cargo inside it. The Chevy Express Van 2500 Cargo model offers up to 3,280 lbs of payload capacity, while the 2500 Passenger Van can give you up to 2,550 lbs of payload capacity due to the weight of the extra seats and features.
If you need a greater payload and GVWR than that, however, then consider the 3500 model, which can handle quite a bit more. The 3500 is available with either the regular or extended wheelbase and offers a CVWR of up to 9,900 lbs. This translates into direct improvements in terms of payload. The Cargo model can have up to 4,280 lbs of payload, while the Passenger van can handle up to 3,540 lbs of maximum payload.
If your business primarily needs a van for transporting passengers, then the 2021 Chevy Express Passenger Van is the way to go. This model has two different trims available, so you can get the kind of features you need for your passengers and business. No matter which trim you choose, however, you can pick from all three available engines. It is also worth noting that the regular wheelbase model can fit up to 12 passengers, while the extended wheelbase can handle up to 15 passengers total.
The standard LS trim of the Passenger model includes an AM/FM stereo with an MP3 player, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and vinyl front bucket seats. It has a pair of bucket seats in the front, with a pair of three-person bench seats in rows two and three and a fourth row with four-person seating. You get a standard console with an open storage bin up front, along with rubberized vinyl floor covering, front and rear air conditioning, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
If you choose the available LT trim, then you get a number of upgrades throughout the interior of the van. These start with a pair of cloth front bucket seats rather than vinyl and extend to a deluxe console with a swing-out storage bin to secure valuable items. The LT trim also includes carpeted floor covering with rubberized vinyl floor mats for easy cleaning, remote keyless entry, and cruise control to make long trips easier on the driver. A swing-out passenger-side door is standard, though a sliding passenger-side door is available.
If you need your 2021 Chevy Express Van to be able to transport cargo or objects of any kind, then the Cargo model is the way to go. This model does not have different trims available, so it is easier to focus on upgrades and options that make it more effective for your business's needs. It is also available with either a regular or extended wheelbase, which gives you more interior space.
The WT trim includes vinyl front bucket seats, standard air conditioning, and rubberized vinyl floor covering. It lacks the rear air conditioning, additional seats, and other features of the Passenger model and instead allows you to customize the interior as you see fit. For example, Chevy offers a number of packages on the Cargo model, including an enhanced convenience package that includes remote start and keyless entry, as well as a communications package that includes cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
A swing-out passenger-side door is standard, though a passenger-side sliding door is available, as are a number of interior options. For example, you can choose cloth seats, rather than vinyl, and add a second row of seating if you need to have more passengers inside. There are more than a dozen interior cargo management options available, allowing you to easily build a vehicle that meets your needs. Fold-up shelving, garment lockers, and more are all available, so you can really customize your Express Cargo Van to be able to carry whatever you need to take with you.
