2016 Chevrolet Express
A COMMERCIAL VEHICLE FOR ALL THE HARD WORK AHEAD: THE 2016 CHEVROLET EXPRESS CARGO VAN
A vehicle that’s owned by a tradesman or small business has to not only be built for years of heavy use, but also sport a body architecture that’s easy to upfit and reconfigure to meet changing work duties. The engineers at Chevrolet have designed such a workhorse, as the 2016 Chevy Express Cargo van can not only haul whatever needs to get to a work site, but is adaptable enough to serve in multiple capacities throughout its lifespan. With a starting MSRP of $30,595, it’s also a work vehicle that any tradesman or small business owner can afford.
NEW 2016 CHEVROLET EXPRESS CARGO VAN FEATURES
Chevy Express Cargo 2500 Regular Wheelbase vans have 270.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo space and a GVWR of 8,600 lbs, while the 3500 Chevy Express Extended Wheelbase models have a cavernous 313.9 cubic feet of cargo volume and a 9,600 lbs GVWR, giving them the ability to carry even large pieces of equipment internally
Available equipment packages such as rooftop ladder storage gear and internal shelving/upfit options that can be tailored to the needs of plumbers, electricians, and general contractors maximize the Express Cargo van’s tool storage capacity and overall utility
A 10,000 lbs max towing capability makes it easy for the 2016 Express Cargo van to haul specialized equipment trailers, building materials, and wheeled tools/light vehicle trailers
An available Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 provides 260 hp of best-in-class diesel power, while a standard Hydra-Matic® 6-speed automatic transmission incorporates auto grade braking that enhances safety
A Cargo Crew option provides seating for 5, while standard passenger and rear swing-out doors allow for easy loading/unloading and entry/exit
Class-exclusive built-in 4G LTE WiFi® Internet hotspot capability enables multiple crew members who ride in the 2016 Chevy Express Cargo van to access the Internet independently
TOUGHNESS AND THE ABILITY TO BE RECONFIGURED MAKE THE 2016 CHEVY EXPRESS CARGO VAN A SOLID INVESTMENT FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
The 2016 Chevrolet Express Cargo van was designed from the start to be easy to upfit and reconfigure throughout its lifespan, which is why Chevy not only offers it with multiple exterior storage accessories that provide additional space for ladders, hoses, and other types of equipment on the roof and rear doors, but internal storage and electrical configurations that were laid out to fit general contracting, plumbing, electrical, and mobile office/communications needs. While these specialized interiors can be ordered directly from Chevrolet and may be eligible for GM Accessories Cash Allowance or Upfit Cash under the GM Business Choice Program, the spacious nature of the 2016 Express Cargo’s architecture allow it to be easily reconfigured by aftermarket upfitters years down the road. This makes the Chevrolet Express Cargo van a great investment for any small business, as its durable frame can be put to many uses throughout its lifespan.
POWERTRAIN OPTIONS THAT NOT ONLY INCREASE CAPABILITY, BUT ALSO ENHANCE SAFETY
The 2016 Chevy Express Cargo van is offered with four engine choices: A base Vortec® 4.8L SFI V8, Vortec® 6.0L SFI FlexFuel V8, 6.0L SFO Gaseous engine V8, and a Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 that generates best-in-class 260 hp and 525 lb-ft of torque. It’s also available with a heavy-duty 770 cold-cranking amps battery or a 600 cold-cranking amps primary, isolated 2nd heavy-duty 770 cold-cranking amps battery setup while single 105, 145, 220, or dual 145 amp alternators round out the electrical system. A standard Hydra-Matic® 6-speed heavy-duty transmission may be the most reassuring part of the 2016 Chevrolet Express Cargo van’s powertrain, however, as it incorporates an auto grade braking system that automatically slows the van down by downshifting during descents across long, steep grades. Combined with the standard StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System, this auto grade braking system allows even fully-loaded Chevy Express Cargo vans to safety navigate uneven terrain and tight turns.
THE 2016 EXPRESS CARGO VAN’S WIFI® CAPABILITY MEANS NO WORK SITE IS EVER OUT OF TOUCH OR AT A LOSS FOR CRITICAL INFORMATION
While the 4G LTE WiFi® hotspot capability that’s built into every 2016 Chevrolet model allows for both professional and personal access to the Internet, it can truly be a time and money saver for businesses that own the 2016 Chevy Express Cargo van. This is because the WiFi® hotspot capability allows multiple members of a work crew to access email, changing work orders, financial accounts, blueprints, and other types of visual data independently, which can maximize efficiency and lower project costs when working at remote sites.
