2004 Chevrolet Venture Overview

A somewhat bland and boxy minivan, the 2004 Chevrolet Venture stands out for its interior space and ability to hold up to eight passengers. Offered as both a cargo van (with only two rows of seats) or a passenger van with three rows, the full-size minivan is available in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, in both a regular 112-inch or extended 120-inch wheelbase. A 3.4-liter, 185-hp V6 is mated to a 4-speed automatic.

The lineup starts with the Plus, equipped with power features, cruise control, and dual front airbags. The LS adds a CD player, ABS brakes, and side impact bags. The upscale LT is packed with a power driver's seats, leather upholstery, rear climate control, and a newly standard DVD player. New for the 2004 Venture are some added options, including satellite radio and an MP3-compatible sound system. The LT gets an optional power passenger seat and a new Sport Appearance Package.

The 2005 Venture LT seats eight, with bench seats in the second and third row that can be removed or folded down. They do not fold flat, which disappoints owners. Second row bucket seats can be substituted. The cargo area extends from 31 to 141 cubic feet and comes with tie-downs and three storage compartments, including one for wet items. A manual sliding side door is standard, and dual doors can be added, along with a power features. All-wheel drive models, available only on extended vans, come with larger 16-inch wheels and a rear touring suspension, but are not meant for off-roading. The spacious room means lots of versatility for owners, and they also say the Venture handles more like a car than a full-sized minivan. The ride can be rough, however, emphasizing bumps and ruts in the road.
