When it comes to moving a big number of people, a full-size passenger van is the only option available to you. One alternative is the 2017 Chevrolet Express, which offers flexible seating combinations that may accommodate eight, twelve, or fifteen people. However, unless you enjoy the aesthetics or are soothed by a large number of replacement parts available, we recommend that you go somewhere else.

The Express’s major disadvantage is that it is becoming older. Despite modest interior and cosmetic updates over the years, the current Express is almost identical to the model that first appeared on the road back in 1996. Since then, every other rival has had their whole product line redone. High-roof models are also available from competitors to make it easier for passengers to enter and exit the vehicle. Even though used components are readily available, the Chevrolet Express Passenger has a proven track record.


The 2017 CHEVROLET EXPRESS is offered in 3 trim levels:

  • Work Van
  • LT
  • LS

Performance and Fuel Economy

The standard 4.8-liter V-8 has 285 horsepower and 295 pounds of torque, the more powerful 6.0-liter V-8 has 342 hp and 373 pounds of torque, and the turbodiesel I-4 with 181 horsepower has 369 pounds of torque. The 2017 Chevrolet Express is available with three engines. It is standard on all versions to have a six-speed automatic transmission for all three engines.


Both the Express Cargo and the Express Passenger are available in 2500 and 3500 Series variants, with various trim choices to choose from. Wheelbases are also available in regular and extended lengths, allowing for even more customizability. The van’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) ranges from 8,600 to 9,900 pounds, depending on the configuration. Chevy Express owners in the Phoenix region benefit from the outstanding internal room provided by the Express Cargo, which begins at 270.4 cu ft on 2500 Series Regular Wheelbase vehicles and goes up from there.

3500 Series

The 3500 Series vehicles with the extended wheelbase at the top of the series provide a spacious 313.9 cubic feet of inside space. If you’re looking for a vehicle that can accommodate 12 to 15 passengers, the Express Passenger is your vehicle. The optional OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, standard rubberized-vinyl flooring, and a standard power outlet situated directly on the instrument panel are noteworthy features and choices.

Passenger Van

If you want more seats, 2017 Chevrolet Express evaluations suggest that the passenger van model is the best option. With seating arrangements ranging from 8 to 12 to 15 passengers, this spacious vehicle will transport your family about town in luxury and comfort, regardless of their size. The van is available in two different wheelbase lengths: 2500 and 3500. It also has lots of storage space for your belongings. Each one is available with two different wheelbases: an extended 155-inch wheelbase and a conventional 135-inch wheelbase.


16-inch steel wheels, 60/40-split swing-out right-side doors, electric windows and locks, and an automatic gearbox are all standard on the Express Cargo. A six-way adjustable driver’s seat has six speakers as standard equipment on the passenger van. 2017 Express 3500 cargo has a new color, a spray-in cargo liner, and a 150 amp alternator, among other upgrades. The Express 3500 passenger has an all-new exterior paint with a redesigned 4-pin/7-pin trailer electrical hookup option. The 6.6-liter Duramax diesel and 6.0-liter natural gas engines will no longer be available for the Express 3500 freight van and the Express 3500 passenger van this year.

The 2017 Chevrolet Express achieved a three-star rating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s rollover test (out of a possible five stars). The 2017 Chevrolet Express has not been crashing tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and it is not available with active safety or collision avoidance technologies.
