2005 Chevrolet Express

The biggest change for the 2005 Chevy Express passenger van came from the addition of Stabilitrak stability control as a standard feature on 12 passenger trims.  Otherwise, not too much changed for Chevrolet's roomy alternative to the Express Cargo.  If you've got a sizable clan to carry around, the Express has room for 8, 12, or 15 passengers depending on which of the 10 trims you choose.

Gas mileage generally ranges from 13 mpg in the city to 19 on the highway.  Powertrains come in 4.3 L, 195 hp V6, 5.3 L, 295 hp V8, and 6.0 L, 300 hp V8 flavors.  Max towing capacity generally ranges from 6100 to 9700 lbs. depending on the trim.

Overall, the Express gets props for its capable engines and wide range of seating arrangements.  On the other hand, the interior could use a little refinement.  In any event, the Express does everything you could ask when it comes to carrying families and youth sports teams.
