2007 Chevrolet Uplander LS 4dr Ext Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this "07 Uplander with 12000 mi. on it.As others have said it does resemble an SUV.This is my first van purchase and I am surprised at the ease of handling,smooth ride,excellent braking and adequate power. The exterior look is better than the normal van and the 17" wheels put it in another class.I'm so glad I discovered this van as I had never heard of it before a month ago.Love it!
All of the above, looks, ride, brakes, wheels, etc. and the price is about $10,000 less than an Odyssey.
The biggest improvements would be stow and go rear seats and removable second row seats also my LS didn't come with a front console. Of course this would add probably another $1000. or so to the cost.
