Which Express does Edmunds recommend?
Recommending any one version of the 2017 Chevrolet Express Passenger is difficult; the body and load rating you should choose will largely depend on your needs. If you intend to regularly fill the van with people or tow a trailer, consider the 3500 for its increased payload and tow capabilities. If you need an additional row of seats, check out the extended-wheelbase 3500. We think the regular-wheelbase 3500 will be suitable for most buyers and the LT trim's reasonable price point and increased feature content make it the more desirable trim.
Edmunds' Expert Review
Most vehicles in this class max out at 12 seats, but the Express (along with its GMC Savana twin and the Ford Transit) offers seating for up to 15. A high roof is not on the options list, so passengers will have to duck as they enter and exit.
The cargo area behind the rear seats measures an impressive 92.1 cubic feet, leaving plenty of room for carry-on luggage. All seats behind the first row are removable should you need to store extra cargo, increasing the area to 252.8 cubes in the long-wheelbase model.
The Express isn't the most tech-forward van on the market, with just a two-speaker sound system, AM/FM radio and an auxiliary port as standard. Additions such as a USB port, CD player and navigation are available. The optional touchscreen's user interface is dated compared to those in other Chevys.
