2006 Chevrolet Express Overview

2006 Chevrolet Express

Not much changed for the Chevy Express passenger van in 2006.  The vehicle that could double as an airport shuttle bus has 8, 12, and 15 seat configurations.  In addition, the Express sports 3 powertrains: a 4.3 L, 195 hp V6, a 5.3 L, 295 hp V8, and a 6.0 L, 300 hp V8.  All 5 trims have 4 speed automatic transmission.

Gas mileage generally ranges from 14 mpg in the city and 19 on the highway.  Max towing capacity goes from 6100 to 9800 lbs. depending on the trim.  4 of the 5 have rear wheel drive and the final trim has all wheel drive.

Overall, reviewers like the Express's relatively modern design, wide powertrain selection, and passenger considerations.  On the other hand, handling could use some work.  The Chevrolet Express would make a solid choice for any large family on the go.
