The 2020 Chevrolet Express is offered in three trim levels: a base-level WT model that only comes as a cargo van, and LS and LT trims, which are offered as passenger models.
The base WT ($33,295 for the 2500, $36,395 for the 3500) comes with only the basics. That means vinyl seating, air conditioning, a rearview camera, a standard auxiliary port for music and little else. There are also power locks, power windows and a 2-speaker AM/FM radio.
Step up to the LS ($36,195 for the 2500, $38,495 for the 3500), and you'll get power locks and windows, rear air conditioning, a rear auxiliary heater and General Motors' revised OnStar system with in-car Wi-Fi. More importantly, you'll get 12 seats, as the LS is the van's base passenger model.
Many more comfort and convenience features come standard on the LT ($38,295 for the 2500, $40,195 for the 3500). Added items include a chrome grille, chrome bumpers, a carpeted floor, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, power mirrors, lane-departure warning and forward-collision warning. Fifteen-passenger configurations are available.
Shoppers can also choose from various options, even on the stripped-down WT model. Drivers who want a CD player, for instance, can add one. The same goes for the van's available power accessories. For shoppers interested in more luxury, Chevrolet offers the Express with the MyLink infotainment system, blind spot monitoring, navigation, parking sensors and an iPod/USB interface. Also optional is a long-wheelbase version.
Every Chevrolet Express model includes side-curtain airbags, front-side airbags, anti-lock brakes and stability control. Options include a side blind zone alert, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, hill-start assist and rear parking sensors. Passenger models feature General Motors' OnStar system as standard equipment.
Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has crash-tested the Express.
2021 Chevrolet Express 3500 vs the competition
2020 Chevrolet Suburban -- Yes, one of the most obvious competitors to the Chevrolet Express is in the same showroom. A Suburban will seat up to eight, and while it doesn't deliver the sheer cubic volume of the Express, it tops the van in comfort, capability and over-the-road demeanor.
2020 Ford Transit --Ford's European-inspired full-size van is also offered in cargo and passenger configurations. But unlike the Express, it boasts several fuel-efficient engine choices, modern driving dynamics, available AWD and high-tech options.
2020 Ram ProMaster -- Ram's big cargo van is just the latest in a line of full-size vans that have made the Chevrolet Express look like the dinosaur that it is. The ProMaster offers more room, more engine choices and more configurations.
Used Mercedes-Benz Sprinter -- The Sprinter offers impressive capability and efficiency in a considerably more modern package than the Express, but it's also more expensive, so you might want to consider a used model.
