One of a handful of full-size vans left on the market, the Express 2500 soldiers on looking much like it did 40 years ago. It's not that Chevy's design team has been asleep for decades—there's only so much you can do with a storage room on wheels. Underneath the skin, mechanical updates have kept up with the times without intruding on the cavernous interior space that is essential to this type of vehicle.

The 2500 cargo model offers a choice of standard or extended wheelbases, the latter offering 284 cubic feet of space and 9,600 pounds of payload capacity. There's also a passenger model on the standard wheelbase that seats 12.

Major changes included:

In 1996, Chevrolet added the Express 2500 full-size van to its lineup, and it debuted with a 5.7-liter V8 engine that cranked out 250 horsepower through a four-speed automatic transmission. In 1999, the Express 2500's V8 jumped to 255 horsepower. The 2003 model year saw the Express 2500's 5.7-liter replaced by a 6-liter V8 with 300 horsepower. The 2006 model year borought a downsizing in engine size, as the a 285-horsepower 4.8-liter V8 replaced the Express 2500's standard 6-liter. In 2007, the Express 2500 moved to a fleet-only vehicle, then returned to the retail lineup in 2008.
