2013 Chevrolet Express

The full-size 2013 Chevrolet Express can be purchased as either a passenger van or a cargo van, and it comes in three different duty levels: 1500, 2500, and 3500. Other full-size vans, such as the Ford E-Series, Nissan NV, and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, are among Express’s competitors in the market. The Chevrolet Express and the GMC Savana share many mechanical components.


The 2013 Chevrolet Express has 3 trim levels:

  • Work Van
  • LT
  • LS

Performance and Fuel Economy

Five different General Motors engines may be chosen, the largest of which is a turbo-diesel 6.6-liter V-8. Every engine has an oil-life monitor and an air-filter monitor. A fast-idle option is available for the 6.0-liter V-8, which makes it simpler to operate aftermarket components while the engine is idling. Vans fitted with a turbo-diesel 6.6-liter V-8 engine have an axle ratio of 3.73 as standard, and a locking rear limited-slip differential may be purchased as an option.

If it has the right accessories, the Express can pull up to 10,000 pounds when properly equipped. RV and commercial cutaway applications may take advantage of the heavy-duty G3500, which has a wheelbase longer than standard and a gross vehicle weight rating reaching up to 14,200 pounds.


In 2013, Chevrolet Express vans of the 1500-series came with standard seating for eight passengers, while the 2500 and 3500 variants came with standard seating for twelve passengers each. The 3500 model with the extended wheelbase can have an additional seat installed, increasing its capacity to carry 15 passengers. The controls are simple and intuitive to operate. Still, the inside is covered with harsh plastic, and even fundamental items like carpeting and power locks are not included as standard equipment. Because the engine cowling protrudes from the dashboard, there is not a lot of space for the driver and front passengers to stretch out their legs. The rear legroom is adequate, but the usual roof height makes it difficult for passengers to get in and out of the vehicle without having to duck.


Even though the full-size passenger van class is a rather modest one, the 2013 Chevrolet Express does not quite match the criteria that are now in place. Even while the Express is more than capable of transporting big groups of people, driving it around town results in a less civilized experience; it cannot compare to the Sprinter or the NV regarding its handling, ride, or steering. It is not a bad option if the price is the key factor in your decision-making process. Still, this van has an old-fashioned vibe about it, particularly in the congested metropolitan surroundings where the normal Chevy Express will spend most of its working life.

Shocks and Suspension

All versions of the Chevrolet Express produced in 2013 come standard with a front suspension that consists of short and long arms, coil springs, and gas-pressurized shocks. This suspension is standard on all models. The short and long-arm suspension provides an improved ride quality by reducing road imperfections’ impact on the occupants within the vehicle. This impact is strengthened by the cooperation between the gas-pressurized shocks and the coil springs. The vehicle’s back end is equipped with a leaf suspension, consisting of leaf springs and gas-pressurized shocks for support.


By evenly distributing the weight of a substantial freight or passenger load over the chassis, the leaf suspension contributes to the vehicle’s increased stability. In addition to this, the leaf springs are of assistance. Stability and resistance to rollover are both increased when a vehicle’s front and rear end are equipped with anti-roll bars. The Express may be equipped with either a rack and pinion steering system or re-circulating ball steering, depending on your chosen model. Chevrolet Service Manuals are also available with the vehicle.
