2017 Chevy Express Work Vans are All About Business


Unlike a mullet, the new 2017 Chevrolet Express vans are as much business in the front as they are in the back. Offering superb cargo space, several customizable layouts, and hauling ability that beats most in its class, these iconic cargo vans make any company operate at peak performance. Here’s what you’ll discover in your next work van from Chevy.


The 2017 Chevy Express offers two rear-wheel-drive models: The 2500 or 3500, each of which can be configured to have a regular or extended wheelbase (313.9 cubic feet of cargo space).

In the 2500 model is a base 4.8L V8 engine that produces 285hp and 295 lb.-ft. torque, allowing the van to haul a maximum payload of over 3,200 pounds. Fitted with the same engine, the 3500 Express can transport over 4,100 pounds. An upgrade to the 6.0L V8 engine pushes horsepower to 342 and torque to 375 lb.-ft., while also upping the trailering potential to the max at 10,000 pounds.

The best buddy to either engine is Chevy’s Hydra-Matic® 6-speed transmission. Those in need of full control of their payload will love the Tap-Up/Tap-Down Driver Shift Control—once you use it, you won’t go back to the traditional hope-and-pray ways of towing.


Chevy Express: Fully Customizable for Your Business

Your company is wholly yours, meaning your needs aren’t the same as Joe Schmo’s. To keep your business on track to deliver, these Chevy Express work vans can be customized with a variety of authentic Chevrolet accessories, systems, and tech.

As a business owner, staying connected and powered up should be a priority when you’re on the road. The Chevrolet Express models come with useful tech like 4G LTE Wi-Fi (available), Bluetooth, USB charging ports, and a 120V power outlet. Keep all your gadgets charged, connect to the internet for quick out-and-about searches, and make better use of your time in the process.

To keep better track of your Express work vans and their drivers, take advantage of Chevrolet’s Commercial Link program. This “vehicle management system” allows you to track your vehicle using GPS, and receive reports on fuel efficiency, speed, and maintenance requirements. The only better way to stay in the loop is if you’re actually in the loop.

For all you plumbers, contractors, and electricians out there, simply add wall shelving to your work van and stay organized even when you’re miles away from the shop.


You can also order and install the following Chevy Express accessories from our Lee’s Summit car dealers:

  • Ladder Racks
  • Hitch Trailing Accessories
  • Bulkhead Cargo Dividers
  • Molded Hood Protectors
  • Side Assist Steps
  • Crossbars

If you need the flexibility of hauling people in addition to materials, Express Cargo Crew vans are available with seating for up to five passengers. And to trim down delivery times, opt for a Chevy Express work van with sliding side doors. Drivers can load and unload in no time, making lightweight-material hauling simple.

Your Chevy Express setup is determined by you to ensure you’re giving your clients and customers exactly what they need.
