Coming from Fords, very dissapointed.
By Greg on


2004 Chevrolet Express 2500 Rwd 3dr Van (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Mechanically these are superior to the Fords, as far as engine and transmission. However, everything else is worse. The old 1975-1992 Econoline has more room, feels better, drives better, handles better, body is more solid, I could go on an on. The Express interior is very cheap and uncomfortable. Hard plastic creaks and feels like it's going to break whenever you touch it. Feels coarse and unpleasant on skin. Front seating is cramped and much less roomy than Ford. Rides like a "rock". Feels like you better handle it with "kid gloves" or it will break. Sliding door rattles and shakes like tin foil when you close it GENTLY. All doors, controls, seats, and dash feel cheap compared to Ford.

Best Features

This is the 2500HD series, 8 lug wheels, 6.0 liter. What I like: Much better engine and trans. design than Ford. Much easier to work on for mechanics, and preferred by those who know. More power and potential to modify. However at anything less than full throttle, the Fords feel tighter and quicker.

Worst Features

1. Improve interior design, ergonomics, feel to the touch, room, and QUALITY. 2. Improve body and doors solidity, rigidity. An old 70's chevy van feels more solid. 3. Improve steering, ride, and handling to better the Fords. It's WORSE now. 4. Improve MPG for the 6.0. Getting 12-14 mpg empty now.
