Review of the 2003 Chevrolet Express Cargo

  • With the addition of new engines and features, the Express (and its twin, the GMC Savanna) is pretty much the only game in town if you're looking for a full-size van that doesn't look and drive like it was designed two decades ago.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong powertrains, unique access doors, multiple configurations, optional all-wheel drive.

  • Cons

    Plasticky interior, handling still awkward despite improvements.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Express Cargo van gains numerous improvements for the '03 model year. Under the hood, the Express now features GM's lineup of powerful Vortec engines, from the base 200-horsepower V6 all the way up to the hard-charging 300-hp 6.0-liter V8. All-wheel-drive models are also available for the first time, and all Express vans get four-wheel disc brakes with ABS. Driver-side 60/40 access doors and swing-up access panels have also been added as an option along with revised front-end styling, larger stabilizer bars and a stronger frame. Inside, the Express gets redesigned seats, improved lighting and ventilation systems and dual-stage airbags on all light-duty versions.

Haul away!

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Express Cargo 2500 Rwd 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Bought van used in 06 w/ very low mileage. Ample space and hauling capacity. Great, modern look for a work van. 4.8 V8 is reliable as they come, but underpowered for a van this size, especially if you carry a massive amount of equipment as I do. Then again, these vans are made for hauling, not speed. I will buy another Express in the future, but instead go w/ the larger 6.0L engine.
