2006 Chevrolet Express Cargo 2500 3dr Van (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Diesel gets 20 mpg or 16 mpg with 8-10,000 trailer and when in a hurry I've done 80 with a full load and pulls like it's not even there. It still drives like a cargo van. High center of gravity effects cornering. Can ride rough without a load.
Love the diesel, now if I just wish I could find a Diesel in a minivan for my wife. The extra cost for diesel pays for itself with resale not to mention fuel savings.
Standard tires are poor in the snow. AWD with the Diesel engine for those of us in the rust belt.
