The Chevrolet Express 3500 is the big brother to the Express 2500 and is designed specifically for hauling cargo or people from place to place. The Express has been in the Chevy lineup for years and its success over the years has led Chevrolet to leave well enough alone for 2017.
Like the 2500, the one-ton Express 3500 can carry 12 or 15 passengers depending on configuration. The cargo version can handle up to 4,192 pounds of payload and is comfortable towing up to 10,000 pounds, making it a true workhorse on the job site. Disabled owners or medical users can also convert the Express 3500 to handle a variety of different wheelchair lifts.
The Express 3500 comes standard with a Vortec 4.8-liter V8 engine that cranks out 285 horsepower. The Express 3500 is also available with an optional Vortec 6.0-liter V8 engine, which puts out 342 horsepower and 373 pound-feet of torque. The 2017 lineup will also include an optional Duramax turbodiesel engine.
