What's New for the 2018 Chevy Express?

Chevrolet brought the Chevy Express onto the market in 1995 as a commercial work van capable of carrying 12-15 passengers and large loads from one location to another. One of the most popular work vehicles worldwide, the Chevy Express has not changed much in appearance since its inception. Here and there small changes brought the Chevy Express further into the technology revolution. The only improvement in 2018 is the introduction of a new motor as standard equipment. The engine is designed to provide more power with greater fuel economy.
