A full-size van produced by Chevrolet Also sold as the GMC Savana.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Chevrolet Express page on 28 September 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Chevrolet Express and its mechanically identical twin GMC Savana are full-size vans from General Motors. They replaced the Chevrolet Van and GMC Vandura in 1995. The Express and Savana currently hold 44.8% of the full-size van market in the United States, just behind rival Ford E-Series. The Express outsells the Savana by more than 3 to 1 in the United States, but the Savana outsells the Express 2 to 1 in Canada.

After 2003, the Express and Savana had updated front-end sheet metal similar to the GMT800 light trucks and GMT360 SUVs, and at the same time, fitted with the LS engines. The remainder of the body was not modified. In 2004, Stability Control (Stabilitrak) was added to all passenger vans. In 2008, the interior was updated and side impact roof airbags were standard on all passenger models. They also offer the E85 Flexfuel Vortec 5.3L V8 engine in both the 2008 Express 1500 Work Van and Passenger Van. The 6.6L Duramax V8 engine Diesel was added as an option for 2006.

In 2017 a new 2.8L Duramax Diesel engine was added. In 2018 a new 6.0L V8 gaseous CNG/LPG capable engine was added.
