Review of the 2004 Chevrolet Express Cargo

  • Powerful Vortec engines and some unique features make the Express (and its twin, the GMC Savanna) 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, dual-passenger access doors, multiple wheelbase and passenger configurations, optional all-wheel drive.

  • Cons

    Plasticky interior, handling still awkward despite improvements, can't get a diesel engine.

  • What's New for 2004

    The driver-side illuminated vanity mirror has been eliminated and a front-passenger assist handle has been added. All-wheel drive is no longer available on 2500-series vans.

Starcraft lt conversion (5.3l v8)

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Express Cargo 1500 Rwd 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

The van is really an Express RV-base model upgraded with a Starcraft low-top conversion. Great vehicle. Starcraft conversion approach much better than going with the conventional Chevy passenger van. Owned a couple of Ford vans previously, no comparsion, Chevy much superior, particulalry with respect to control and handling. Gas mileage great too after about a 5K mile break in period. Driving about 85% highway and 15% city we're getting a little over 19.5 mpg. Estimate the actual city/highway mileage breakdown would be 16/20. Not bad for 5300 lb full-sized van.




Gmc savana cargo van

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Express Cargo 1500 Rwd 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Great van! Drives like a car, can haul over a ton, great brakes and steering. No rattles or noises -- get 20.2 MPG on the Hwy. The 4.3L six has excellent low-end torque, reliability and economy.
