The 2018 Chevrolet Express Passenger is a full-size van that can hold more passengers than a typical family-oriented minivan. Seating for 12 is standard, and eight- and 15-passenger models are available depending on body style. The Express highlights its versatility with multiple engines, wheelbases and load ratings to suit your business needs. It comes in two trims — LS and LT — each of which offers a smattering of stand-alone options.
The Express Passenger's base LS trim is modestly equipped but offers a few comforts, including power windows and locks, air conditioning, vinyl upholstery and an auxiliary audio jack. The only available package marries a tilt-adjustable steering wheel with cruise control. The upper-level LT trim adds that plus chrome bumpers, cloth upholstery, rear air conditioning, and remote locking and unlocking. There's also a separate bundle that combines a touchscreen interface with navigation, Bluetooth, a CD player and a USB port. Additional upgrades include power-adjustable mirrors, satellite radio, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors.
Under the hood of the rear-wheel-drive Express Passenger is a 4.8-liter V8 producing 285 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. If you need more power, order the 6.0-liter V8 with its 341 hp and 373 lb-ft of torque. For those with an eye on monthly fuel costs, consider the new four-cylinder diesel engine, which makes 181 hp and 369 lb-ft. Two load ratings are available — 2500 and 3500 — and the 3500 can be ordered in an extended-wheelbase body style. It allows for a larger cargo area behind the fourth row or another row of seating to accommodate a grand total of 15 passengers.
The 2018 Chevrolet Express Passenger costs about the same as competing passenger vans, but it is far less customizable and rivals are mostly powered by smaller, more fuel-efficient engines. The passenger area behind the first row is large enough to seat riders comfortably, but other vans offer high-roof options to aid ingress and egress. Finally, the Express is extremely old compared to the rest of the class (this generation dates way back to 1996), so its interior lacks some of the latest entertainment and safety tech that others enjoy. If you decide that the benefits outweigh the deficiencies, use Edmunds' pricing and search tools to find the perfect Express Passenger for you.
