2004 Chevrolet Express 1500 Rwd 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Good solid vehicle for a family. Good value when compared to a Suburban. Even with 4.3L V6, it has good perfomance. Available V8 would probably be better. Locking rear axle makes winter driving very doable. Optional 4 wheel disk brakes are welcome addition to stop this 5300lb truck.
Interior room and rear entry doors on both sides. Rear heat unit is great too. Handles well for a large vehicle.
Redesign rear doors. Exterior plastic corners are a cheap touch for an otherwise fine vehicle. The dash is cheap looking too. Sticker on this conversion van was 38K. I got it for much less though. Must use materials that feel better.
