Many hopes from lovers of the auto world for the presence of the 2022 Chevy Express Van and its features and updates. This new van will allow the company Chevrolet to survive in the full-size van class from the onslaught of its rivals. What are the features that will be offered in the future?
Even though this full-size van has been around for about twenty years, it is still selling very well. General Motors was able to maintain this old-sounding vehicle as to the second best-selling product after Ford. People are starting to speculate about when this company will replace Express and Sabana? But apparently, there was also a breath of fresh air that the two of them were being prepared to consider using electricity. GM is clearly considering working on an electric van.
Breakdown Offered 2022 Chevy Express Van
As agile as any vehicle performance on the road, of course, it will not be complete without the support of sophisticated technology and safety features as well as its infotainment system. The powertrain circuit will also be introduced mechanically with the theme of the future, but with a different exterior style than usual. General Motors itself plans to continue producing the GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express according to their current form until around 2023. Even deeper, the fact is they will also produce them by 2025 if necessary.
As we already know, Chevrolet produces two of the oldest vans in the automotive world, namely Express and Savanna. Introduced on the GMT600 platform in 1995, the current model was refreshed to the GMT610 platform in 2003. We still need a lot of information to predict whether there will be an update in production in 2023 or the model will be maintained as it is now. But, when it comes to the engine, it certainly deserves the spotlight.
The addition of an engine from the LGH Duramax 6.6 L to a much newer diesel engine, namely the Duramax 2.8 L LWN, will become a gold mine for General Motors. If we talk about the sales figures for the two types of vans, both Savanna and Express, of course, we can say that Chevrolet’s achievements are extraordinary every year.
With the adoption of the new GMT1 platform, Chevy has pursued even more comfort with GM’s new architectural endeavors. Overall, the van’s weight was lightened to approximately 136 kilograms.
Apart from that, the thing that deserves thumbs up is that the infotainment feature is also fairly futuristic, driving safer with GM Active Safety technology, as well as a new powertrain system. The petrol engine options are expected to consist of a four-cylinder I-4 (in line with a turbocharger) and a V-6 (six-cylinder naturally aspirated) engine. Meanwhile, the diesel engine is a 2.8L I-4 (inline four-cylinder engine). And also the transmission used is the new 8-speed or 10-speed GM automatic.
Launching and Pricing
Actually, there is no definite news about when the official date for this new van will be launched, but what is clear is in 2021. The target market is still the same as the current Chevrolet van market, starting from the Middle East, North America, Central America, and Mexico.
Meanwhile, the price to be released is still around the estimation, but it seems we can hope that the price is not much different from the first generation, namely:
- $ 30,000 Express Cutaway
- $ 31,000 Express Cargo
- Express Passenger $ 35,000
What comes to your mind after reading this overview? Increasingly impatient waiting for the release of this 2022 Chevy Express Van, right?
