We use our van for long trips and to haul grandkids and anyhting you might need a pickup for. It is the most versatile vehicle we have ever owned and the best Chevy product, we think. Roomy, comfortable and decent on the gas (18-23) on the road. Excellent reliability overall after few electrical problems ar first. Regency conversion elegant and perfect since day one. It runs and looks like new after 3 years and almost 60000 miles. Trying for 100000 before getting another one. Much better bargain than large SUV.

Have a Family of 8 and needed a replacement for our Suburban that was totaled by a drunk.
Equity in Suburban to little to replace with same.
Opted for a basic Conversion Van.
Quad Seating, rear bench folds into a bed.
5L V-8. Result is very nice ride, and better value for the money.
Conversion adds insulation which greatly reduces interior noise from road.
7100 lb GVWR is plenty, and with seats removed can haul massive cargo.
20% better mpg than Suburban - 17 vs 14, more living space.
Large picture windows allow toddler in car seat excelent view of world outside.
6ft7 son can sit anywhere and have plenty of room.
Great for long distance travel.

At first I was intimidated by the size, but the fuel economy wasn't so different- better than same sized SUVs, and after driving it a few times it became very comfortable.
It really is like a "covered, air conditioned pickup". The Vortec engine is the same used on Chevy's trucks, and the feel is very trucky. The passenger tires and suspension make the ride very comforable, more so than a truck.
For 2002, Express gets only minor upgrades like the availability of rearview mirrors with an integrated compass and temperature reading, a more efficient starter, a stronger steering gear housing and low emission vehicle compliance for models equipped with either the 8100 V8 or 6.5-liter diesel and a GVWR of more than 8,600 pounds.
