Te first generation of the highly utilitarian Chevrolet Express was launched in 1996 and came as a replacement for the old Chevrolet Van.
The vehicle shared the same underpinnings with the GMC Savana and both models were hot sellers on the US market. However, despite the fact that these two vans were basically identical, the Express outsells the Savana by more than 3 to 1.
The Chevrolet Express is a fairly versatile utility vehicle that can be used for towing heavy loads or as an ambulance, shuttle bus, or school bus. For increased versatility Chevrolet also offered cutaway versions for its Express.
