Review of the 2001 Chevrolet Express

  • Choices when it comes to full-size vans are easy to make. Do you want a Dodge, a Ford or one of the Chevy/GMC twins? If the Express offers the package you need in a full-size van, then buy it.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Modern styling, powerful range of engines, lots of cargo-hauling capacity.

  • Cons

    Odd arched-eyebrow taillamps spoil clean design, not as refined as Ford Econoline.

  • What's New for 2001

    A new LT trim level with leather and an on-board entertainment system, and a more powerful V8 are the only major changes. Two new exterior colors and upgraded radios and alternators round out the updates for 2001.

It's paid for so don't

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Express 1500 LT 3dr Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I love my van. My wife hates it. (Due to the consumption of fuel, along with the price of fuel.) I upgraded from an Chevy Astro. The room, the entertainment system, the handling, the styling, the aggressive motor, the storage room behind the rear seat, the duel A/C. I can go on forever. The only drawback is the fuel economy, which I really don't mind, because the entire family can travel in comfort. I bought my van with 29,000 miles and I currently have just over 93,000 miles. When it comes to repairs, I've needed to replace my starter, alternator and battery. With regular maintenance my vehicle has been superb.




Excellent product

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Express 2500 3dr Ext Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I purchased this van from the original owner in May of '08 at 105k miles. Have put almost 40k miles on it since that time, as I drive hotshot. It has never left me hanging, and aside from the chronic taillight problem, valve guide seals, and an alternator, it's been problem free. It hauls 3000lbs of payload easily, and has the ability to haul 3 full size pallets (12' total!). The seats are excellent for long trips, as I go out of town/state regularly. Would definitely recommend this van for work of any kind. An excellent hauler with plenty of power, and a stable ride, even with 3000lbs in the back. It doesn't drift or float. Keep it maintained and it will go forever.




Nice family van

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Express 1500 LT 3dr Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Bought new in July 2001. Due to kid reduction am ready to sell. Was great family van. Tows great. Plenty of room everywhere! No better vehicle for 2-4 kids.

Better in the long run

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Express 1500 LT 3dr Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

We have now owned this vehicle for more than 4 years. We are having the same experiences with the seat levers breaking but other than that it is a real workhorse. We are now towing a 4400 lb camper with it and it is doing marvelously. Sure the gas mileage stinks but it's solid mechanically. The driver side sun visor has been replaced 4 times and it's still falling apart. The kids love the van and for long trips, that's really important. We even use it to transport half of my son's basketball team to games.




Family van and cargo hauler

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Express 1500 LT 3dr Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Bought the van to have more cargo space. Mission accomplished. Cavernous room after to take out all seats. Easy to drive und relaxing ride on long trips. High seat position give a good view. LT trim very appealing. Enjoy stepping in every time.

Fix my seats & it's

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Express 1500 LT 3dr Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Four kids each with his own space; we couldn't be happier. Great layout inside and all the geegaws kept the kids quiet while we talked. Easy to drive. We made long trips with cargo packed in the rear and everybody well pleased. This car was targeted at us, and we loved it.
