Edmunds' Expert Review

The Express (and its twin, the GMC Savanna) is pretty much the only game in town if you're looking for a full-size van that doesn't look and drive like it was designed two decades ago.

2005 Highlights

The StabiliTrak stability control system will become standard later in the model year, but only on one-ton regular-wheelbase vans.

You'll Love The Extra Room
J. Hillsoto,07/27/2005
3500 Rwd 3dr Ext Van (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
The Express 3500 is highly recommended for large families or people who want to travel in comfort with a lot of gear. We love the extra roominess of the extended 3500 and for a vehicle of this size we have found that it handles very nicely and gets very good mileage. When it comes to parking, we sometimes have trouble in the narrow parking lots. Our 3500 is about 20 feet long and seat 15 adults comfortably.
Van for All uses
3500 Rwd 3dr Ext Van (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
This is my second Chevrolet Express G3500 extended wheelbase 15 passenger Van. My first was a 2002 which now has over 62000 miles and both looks and runs like it is new. This 2005 has all the indications of being the same way, excellent throughout. I've had equivalent Ford's in the past and these Chev Vans are vastly better in handling and reliability. The 2005 has a 6.0 L engine which gets about 13% better fuel economy than the 5.7 on my 2002. I'm getting 18-19 mpg at 55 mph on long highway trips with this 2005. I'm very happy with it.
2005 AWD 1500 Express Cargo
1500 AWD 3dr Van (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this van used for my plumbing business. The AWD is incredible in the snow, better than any of the 4x4 trucks I have had. It rides great, decent on gas 14-15 MPG, and drives nice. I wish it came in an extended version.
Our family van is at 170,000 miles by just us
3500 Rwd 3dr Ext Van (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
Our family van is our 2nd express. First was a 1999 12 pass and this one is a 2011 15 passenger. No reason to sell it other than she's a little old to take on cross country trips anymore. Great as our local trips to lowes with the seats out or to a family event with all or some of the seats back in. We drive it every day, but don't want the sticker price of a new one as they really haven't changed over the years.

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Chevrolet Express?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
