Review of the 1997 Chevrolet Chevy Van

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fresh design, wide rear cargo doors, dual airbags, powerful optional engines

  • Cons

    Intrusive engine cover, odd taillight design, still not as slick as Ford Econoline

  • What's New for 1997

    Dual airbags appear on the G3500 model, while daytime running lights and three fresh exterior colors make this van easier to see. (Editor's Note: If you can't see this monster van without DRL's, perhaps you should consider surrendering your driver's license.) Electronic variable orifice steering reduces effort at low speeds for easier parking, and automatic transmissions shift more smoothly.
