A crossover sport van for those who want it all, the Uplander delivers the bold styling of an SUV, the passenger room and interior versatility of a van, and the smooth ride of a sedan. For 2007, the Uplander is upgraded with the GM 3.9L V-6 with variable valve timing (VVT) as standard on all models. This powerful and refined V-6 delivers 240 horsepower (179 kW), 240 lb.-ft. (325 Nm) of torque* - a FlexFuel version capable of running on E85 ethanol will be available later in the model year.
A standard-length model, available 2nd-row side airbags, and a new engine option mark 2006 for Chevrolet’s minivans. Uplander mimics Buick Terraza, Pontiac Montana SV6, and Saturn Relay as an SUV-flavored update of GM’s 1997-2004 minivan design. Only Chevy offers a regular-length version, which comes only with front-wheel drive in LS trim.
