The Chevrolet Express, the bowtie’s full-size fleet vehicle van, is getting a downsizing—by which we mean an upgrade—for the 2015 model year. The brand recently released the 2015 City Express, a new model in the Express lineup that takes advantage of a smaller size and an improved powertrain to deliver better fuel economy to fleet operators and business owners.
The City Express will make urban travel and delivery much more efficient, thanks to its 2.0L inline four-cylinder engine, which is neatly paired with both a continuously variable timing belt and transmission.
“As the newest member of the Chevrolet Express family of vans, the 2015 City Express offers a smaller, more efficient choice for businesses that don’t need the cargo volume or other capabilities of a full-size van,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet and Commercial. “It is an easy-to-maneuver van that makes the most of its compact dimensions with clever features, allowing business owners to maximize its space – and their resources – with a vehicle sized for their needs.”
Just because it’s a fleet vehicle doesn’t mean it’s automatically no fun to drive, though. The City Express displays zippy performance on the roads, and is stacked with convenient features, especially with the Technology package on LT models of the van.
While the City Express might not meet your personal driving needs, it’s still exciting to see Chevrolet prioritizing efficiency and customer service to even the furthest corners of their inventory. We expect to continue to see the fruits of innovation like that here at Wiesner of Huntsville for a long time to come.
