2015 Chevrolet Express
2015 Chevrolet Express

New for 2015

The Chevrolet Express rolls into 2015 much the same as years prior, but adds a USB and auxiliary port to the head unit, and gains several options as standard: OnStar with turn-by-turn navigation, 110-volt power outlet. Red Hot and Rainforest Green Metallic are also added as exterior color options. The cargo van gains three rows of LED lighting.
The 4.3-liter V-6 and 5.3-liter V-8 are gone, which means the AWD goes as well as it was paired with the 5.3-liter V-8.

Vehicle Overview

The Chevrolet Express, and mechanical twin GMC Savana, is a full size van that is offered in cargo and passenger carrying variants. It slots above the City Express (a rebadged Nissan NV200) as Chevrolet’s largest commercial van.


The 2015 Chevrolet Express is the remaining full-size American van that soldiers on, unchanged. Ford recently replaced the body-on-frame E-Series, leaving Chevrolet alone and perfectly happy with the body-on-frame Express. The van continues to be offered with two gasoline fed V-8’s and a turbodiesel V-8, all paired with a heavy-duty six-speed automatic. The base 4.8-liter V-8 makes 285 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, and is EPA-rated to get 11/13 mpg city/highway. The bigger gasoline engine is a 329-hp 6.0-liter V-8 that produces 373 lb-ft of torque and gets an EPA-estimated 11/13 mpg as well. The most powerful engine is a turbocharged 6.6-liter diesel V-8 that makes 260 hp and 525 lb-ft of torque. The EPA doesn’t rate large commercial diesel engines.
Maximum trailer towing capacity on the 2015 Express is 10,000 pounds with the 6.6-liter turbodiesel V-8; the passenger van combines the regular length 3500 chassis to get that number, but the cargo does so with the 2500 or 3500 chassis. The passenger van can be configured for 12 passengers in regular length, or 15 in extended wheelbase models. The Express cargo van has a volume of 239.7 cubic feet on regular length models, or 284.4 cubic feet on extended length models.
The 2015 Chevrolet Express received a three-star rollover rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars).

What We Think

In a Review of a 2006 Chevrolet Express we said, “The [2006] Express offers remarkable value for the money. It's relatively cheap to buy, easy to configure for your specific needs, and has a good value history, factoring resale, maintenance, insurance, and repairs.” Just as the van has not changed, the statement remains true for many of the buyers of this stalwart van. Upfitters already have hardware for the Express, it’s familiar and easy to work on, and it’s a proven platform. On the other hand, it’s massive, hard to park, and gets awful fuel economy. Chevrolet has said it have no plans to replace the Express, noting that it meets the needs of people who keep buying them. They have a point: if you need one, and don’t mind the gas mileage, step right up.

American Hustle 3
As the inexorable march toward eco-friendliness continues, our beloved V-8 engines are being pushed to the wayside as smaller forced-induction engines take the lead. To see the incredible progress the automotive industry has made, you need only recall that GM’s optional 7.4-liter V-8 available in 1974 made just 215 hp, while today Chevrolet offers a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 260 hp.
