Chevy Express Cargo 1500

The GM G-Series, which is a Rear Wheel Drive, and the H-Series, which is All Wheel Drive, joins the Chevrolet Express and its twin the GMC Savana, as the full-size vans available from General Motors. These models have replaced the GMC Vandura and the Chevrolet Van in 1997. The Express and the Savana presently secure nearly half of the full-size van market in the United States. They sit just behind their rival, Ford's E-Series. Further, the Express is outselling the Savana by more than 3 to 1. Chevrolet previously made a name for itself in the van market, with one such model being the Chevrolet Van. This model made it to the market in 1961 and has proven to be quite popular. It started out on the Corvair platform, and is still being made under the Express name. It faces its strongest competition from the Ford Econoline series of vans. This model has proven to be so successful for a variety of purposes and reasons. The cargo version of the Express is popular simply as a work vehicle and can be found being driven by professionals such as electricians, plumbers and contractors. Of course it is appropriate for anyone else needing to haul a variety of large items. For those that are familiar with the van market in the UK, the Chevy Express is the North American equivalent of the ubiquitous white vans. The Express has also seen some other uses such as being quite popular and utilitarian as a passenger van. It is available to seat anywhere from 8 to 15 passengers. Other uses include being used as a very capable tow vehicle, ambulance or as a shuttle bus. Uses for the Chevy Express continue and it can be found as the basis for conversion vans and motor homes.
