Used 1993 Chevrolet Sportvan Van Review

Edmunds expert review

What's new for 1993

The standard 4.3-liter V6 gains 5 horsepower, increasing output to 155 hp at 4,000 rpm. Perhaps more significant is the introduction of the 4L60-E electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth, optimally coordinated gear changes.On the safety front, the Sportvan now comes with four-wheel antilock brakes, replacing last year's rear-wheel only ABS.Scotchgard is added to seats and door trim to provide stain protection. Solar-Ray window glass reduces the greenhouse effect that normally heats up the interior on a sunny day.Speaking of keeping the greenhouse effect in check, the air conditioning system now uses R134a, the more environmentally friendly refrigerant that replaces the soon to be scarce, not so environmentally friendly R12. Also, some plastics are labeled for recycling purposes.
