The Chevrolet Express is a full-size commercial van at its finest: robust, muscular, and a little rough around the edges. It lacks the refined ride and fuel economy of modern rivals, but it nevertheless maintains a competitive edge because of its heavy-duty base and superior towing capacity.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Chevrolet will no longer provide the power-window deletion option and the transmission oil cooler for the 2022 model year. A CD player for your Express van is no longer an option, which is another first for this year.

In this segment, it will continue to compete against the likes of the Ford Transit Cargo Van, the GMC Savana Cargo Van, and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van.

We Recommend

The 2500 Express Cargo Van WT is a standalone trim and it is a fantastic place to start. The payload capacities across trim levels aren't much different, but the longer wheelbase layout makes it simple to travel with a payload and a lengthy body structure that extends to 155 inches, while the conventional wheelbase is 135 inches. Halogen headlights and 16-inch steel wheels are standard on the Express 2500. An AM/FM stereo with MP3 capability, two front-door speakers, and a backup camera are all inside the cabin. If money is limited, one should think about choosing the 4.3L V6 with an expanded wheelbase, otherwise, we advise going all out. The top-of-the-line 6.6L V8 with extended wheelbase is the greatest engine and body option since it unlocks all the doors to more power, performance, and improved load capacity. Additionally, there are no differences in the features, which are essentially the same across all setups.

Release Date

The Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van is available on sale on its official website and at the nearest dealerships and showrooms near you.

Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The Chevy Express 2500 Cargo Van offers a variety of engine options to choose from, while there is a single RWD drivetrain option. The Chevy Cargo van 2500 is powered by a standard 4.3L V6 gas engine which is mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission and generates an output of 276 hp and 298 lb-ft of torque, on the other hand, there are two optional engines available, a 6.6L V8 engine that generates 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque, a 2.8L Duramax Turbodiesel 4-cylinder engine that generates 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque respectively. In contrast to the V8's heavy-duty six-speed automatic, the V6 and turbodiesel engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Furthermore, the base trim with the standard engine can complete a 0 to 60 MPH run in 8.8 seconds while it takes 16.7 seconds to cover the quarter-mile time. Furthermore, the standard V6 engine, can pull up and manage rather large weights with a maximum towing capability of 10,000 lbs, the available V8 is still the strongest engine, surpassing the four-cylinder turbo-diesel. Once it starts going, the van really glides very beautifully with sluggish acceleration, and power is entirely sent to the rear wheels in all variants. The low-end torque is sufficient to get around town without too much difficulty, but if you load the van to the maximum, expect things to alter.

The Chevy Express 2500 Cargo Van and the GMC Savan Cargo Van comes equipped with the identical 4.3L V6 engine that generates 276 hp and 298 lb-ft of torque, the GMC Cargo Van can cover the 0 to 60 MPH run in 8.4 seconds while it takes 16.8 seconds to cover the quarter-mile mark with an identical top speed of 100 MPH, and a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. The 2022 Ford Transit Cargo Van generates 275 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, it can cover a 0 to 60 MPH run in 7.5 seconds while it takes 15.9 seconds to cover the quarter-mile mark, and it has a maximum towing capacity of 5,300 lbs. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van lurks at the bottom with its engine output of 188 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, and it even lurks at the bottom with 0 to 60 MPH run in 11.4 seconds while taking 18.4 seconds to cover the quarter-mile mark, and it can tow up to a maximum of 5,000 lbs.

2022 Chevrolet Express 2500 Ride and Handling

The Chevy Express 2500 Cargo Van comes equipped with aluminized stainless-steel muffler and tailpipe which offers a lightweight, low-cost, quality, performance, longevity, extreme workability, and helps resist rust and corrosion. Furthermore, it comes with a front independent with coil springs and stabilizer bar suspension which offers better handling and cornering, higher riding comfort, increased stability and steering, and reduced weight. It comes with power steering that increases steering assistance while moving slowly, especially when parking. On the other hand, it has a rear hypoid drive axle with multi-leaf springs they are perfect for commercial vehicles since they bear the chassis' weight. They further manage axle damping. The high rear moment center and large spring base allow for more effective control of the chassis roll. The Express resembles a horseless wagon in many aspects, including how it drives. Although the van's acceleration is strong though uninspired, you shouldn't want to be driving rapidly in any direction other than a straight line due to its relatively restricted handling qualities. The vehicle rolls a lot when you try to turn without slowing down significantly. The engines will express their annoyance when forced to tow big loads at any rate of speed, although road noise is generally well-managed.

2022 Chevrolet Express 2500 Braking Performance

The Chevy Van Express 2500 comes equipped with StabiliTrak, an electronic stability control system with traction control that automatically improves control by altering the brakes and engine torque to keep you on your desired course, especially during emergency maneuvers. It comes equipped with brake rotors measuring 12.8 inches at the front and 13 inches at the rear. Furthermore, it applies selective braking pressure to certain wheels to assist the driver in keeping the car on the intended course. Additionally, it uses Traction Control, which monitors wheel slippage and adjusts brake pressure or lowers engine power to assist the driver in maintaining control when accelerating on slick or snow-covered roads.

The Mercedes-Benz Cargo van brake rotors aren’t known yet, however, it is speculated that it will have an identical physical braking performance as its adversaries, and it feels the lightest with a curb weight of 4,597 lbs which helps it accelerate at high speeds.

Fuel Economy

8.0/10

The Chevy Express 2500 cargo van is an example of a full-size van that is exempt from federal fuel economy requirements. Because of this, the EPA has not evaluated this van, and Chevrolet has not disclosed its fuel efficiency numbers. The Chevy cargo van has a basic V6 gas engine that is said to achieve about 14 MPG on the combined cycle. According to certain sources, the V8 in a 2500 model had somewhat worse consumption than the V6. The four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine offers the best fuel economy. However, the Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van is backed by a large fuel tank capacity of 31 gallons in its class.

The EPA does not evaluate fuel efficiency for commercial vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of more than 8500 lbs, while we can say that the Chevy Cargo Van 2500 and the GMC Savana Cargo Van has an identical fuel tank capacity of 31 gallons in its class which is better than most of its adversaries, the Ford Transit T150 Cargo Van has a fuel tank capacity of 25.1 gallons while the Benz Cargo Van lurks at the bottom with a fuel tank capacity of 22 gallons.

Interior

6.0/10

The Chevrolet Express Cargo Van provides several alternatives for storing your equipment with its extensive selection of available equipment packages and upfit capability, and the van's interior is roomy yet quite basic. Standardly, there is only enough for two passengers to sit down, leaving the remaining space in the cabin for goods. The van's interior design was given little to no consideration, and the comfort of the passengers was merely a secondary consideration. From the outside, the Chevy Cargo Van 2022 might be able to hide its age, but on the inside, it most definitely cannot. With vinyl upholstery as a standard feature on every grade, the van undoubtedly has the appearance of a blue-collar worker. The fabric isn't extremely high-quality or comfy, however, there is the choice to upgrade to fabric, which is offered in the same colors. The cabin is very well-built and shouldn't show much wear or tear after towing stuff around for a few years despite the worker-quality materials. The cargo area normally has a vinyl floor, but a spray-on cargo liner can be installed in its place.

  • Driver and front passenger visors.
  • Interior lighting includes four dome lights.
  • Rubberized vinyl floor covering (Black)

  • Warning tones include Headlamp on and key-in-ignition.

How intuitive is the 2022 Chevrolet Express 2500 Infotainment system?

The base infotainment option scarcely qualifies as a suite because it simply has two speakers and no display. As these cars should also be accessible to the general people, all of the funding for this category goes into developing the payload and towing safety systems, which reduces the budget for the entertainment system. The Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van comes with a basic entertainment system that includes an AM/FM stereo with an MP3 player, an aux audio connector, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Through the optional Bluetooth, audio streaming is possible, and SiriusXM may also be added. Another way to broadcast your favorite music is by using a USB port. The Communications package, which includes Bluetooth connectivity, is listed as an option. A CD player and SiriusXM satellite radio are also included in this package.

Some of its vital infotainment features include

  • 12-volt power outlets.
  • 120-volt power outlet.
  • AM/FM stereo with MP3 player.
  • Wi-Fi hotspot capable.
  • Two-speaker audio system.
  • OnStar & Chevrolet connected services capable.
  • Driver information center.
  • Auxiliary jack.

Exterior

5.0/10

The Chevrolet Express doesn't have a particularly striking appearance, but it's not ugly for a cargo van. The front has a boxy look and the halogen headlamps that are rectangular in shape, sizable turn indicators, and a Chevrolet emblem in the center are included on each model, which is mounted on steel wheels measuring 16 inches. A black bar holding the golden bowtie divides the towering grille in half. The taillights are mounted high on the rear fascia for the best visibility to anyone following you, and daytime running lights are a standard feature. The Express provides adjustable wheelbase lengths, allowing for either a short or long body, like many of its competitors. The door handle and outside mirrors are completely black on the side profile, while the windows and windshield have glass that has a solar-ray light tint.

The Chevy Express 2500 features only four colors, which is a relatively limited color pallet. The fact that none of the paint selections will incur additional costs is a benefit. It does not, however, provide any more possibilities for medium or high roofs.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van has a much greater wheelbase measuring 144 inches that tend to have a better quality than a shorter wheelbase, and if you need to move a lot of items or need to transfer significant equipment then long wheelbase is the best option. The Chevy Express 2500 van and the GMC Savana Cargo Van have a much better ground clearance that measures 9.7 inches which help in absorbing road shocks. The Ford Transit Cargo Van has a much better width measuring 97.4 inches and a much better front and rear track width also helps in steering, lowers weight transfer, and assists in handling.

Some of its key exterior features include

  • 16-inch steel wheels with gray center caps.
  • Black heated power outside mirrors with convex.
  • Dual-halogen composite headlamps.
  • Front intermittent wipers.
  • Power convenience package includes Power windows and Power door locks.
  • Swing-out passenger-side door.
  • Solar-Ray light-tinted glass.
  • Front license plate kit.

Safety

5.0/10

The Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van is fairly useful in terms of occupant safety and it comes equipped with 2 airbags, an airbag deactivation switch, a frontal passenger-side, Rear Vision Camera, StabiliTrak, electronic stability control system with traction control as standard features. However, it lacks top-notch safety features like frontal collision avoidance, blind-spot alert, lane-departure warning, and rear parking assist may all be found in the Safety package which costs an additional $3,105 MSRP. The Express 2500 Cargo Van has been constructed by Chevrolet with high-quality materials, giving it a tough and strong feel that sounds secure for the occupants. Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash-tested the 2022 Chevy Express 2500 Cargo Van yet.

Some of its salient safety features include

  • Hill start assist.
  • Rear vision camera.
  • Tire pressure monitoring system.
  • StabiliTrak, an electronic stability control system with traction control.
  • 2 airbags.
  • Daytime running lamps.
  • Door beams, steel side.
  • OnStar & Chevrolet connected services capable.

Competition

7.0/10

2022 Chevrolet Express 2500 vs 2022 Ford Transit Cargo Van

When comparing their base engines, the Ford Transit and the Chevrolet Express 2500 don't seem to vary all that much from one another, but that's where the similarities end. The Ford van has recently undergone a mid-cycle update and is substantially more contemporary than the Express. The base engine in the Transit is much more refined even if it isn't much more powerful than the one in the Chevrolet. Even with its most powerful twin-turbo V6, the Transit can only pull 6,900 lbs, which is less than the Express. The maximum payload capacity of the Ford is 5,174 lbs, which is more than the Chevy. When properly set up, the Ford has a maximum cargo capacity of 487.3 cubic feet, which allows for much more space in the back. At a somewhat higher price, the Ford Transit Cargo Van comes with more options, a wider range of amenities, and more luggage capacity, which outperforms the Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van. 

2022 Chevrolet Express 2500 vs GMC Savana Cargo Van

When deciding between a Chevy Express and its almost identical GMC Savana, factors like name, badge, and dealership accessibility come into play. Choose can opt for the Savana if you like the red GMC branding or if the GMC dealer is closer to you than the Chevrolet dealer. This is due to the fact that these two business siblings are otherwise similar. Both cars are quite similar, they all have the same flaws, though, including poor cargo capacity, few body options, a pitifully small number of basic amenities, and hideously out-of-date style. The strangeness that GMC charges more for silver metallic paint, though, tips the scales in favor of the Chevrolet Express 2500. 

2022 Chevrolet Express 2500 vs Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a well-equipped cargo van, but buying one is expensive. The Sprinter's biggest drawback is that its base trim, which costs roughly $36,355, comes with a weak 2.0L turbo gas engine. Mercedes may have more cargo space and a higher payload capacity than the Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van, but if its engine isn't strong enough to move all that weight, it's useless. In these regards, Chevrolet is a much better choice due to its superior interior room and robust V6 gas engine that comes standard. The Chevy is a large, strong van that is easy on the wallet thanks to its durability and affordable maintenance. When compared to the Merc, the Chevy additionally offers more power and far higher payload and towing capabilities.

Final Verdict


Yes, we will recommend buying the Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van, and it serves its purpose admirably as a cargo van. Furthermore, it offers several useful features and advantages, including a roomy interior, respectable safety features, a mediocre entertainment system, and most crucially, a standard V6 engine with 8-speed automatic transmission. However, it lacks behind with a small payload, and a small cargo volume makes us reconsider this cargo van. The Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van is a vehicle that must be on your list when looking at this market, more contemporary appearance, and a tonne of improved standard amenities, but the rivals in this segment provide far superior features and customization choices. However, the Chevrolet Express 2500 Cargo Van is as rugged as they come, with a strong, simple-to-maintain motor and a 10,000-pound towing capability.
