Chevrolet has announced pricing for its foray into the small cargo van segment, the 2015 City Express. With 122.7 cubic feet of customizable utility and a tight turning diameter—36.7 feet—there is a lot to like for $22,950 plus taxes and fees.
The City Express features a 2.0L DOHC four-cylinder with continuously variable valve timing. Rated at 131 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque, it is enough to economically deal with the rigors of American roads while carrying up to 1,500 pounds of payload.
“The Chevrolet City Express offers business customers the functionality and dependability they need to get the job done and the long-term customer service and support from Chevrolet they’ve come to expect,” says U.S. vice president, GM Fleet & Commercial, Ed Peper.
Chevrolet lists the following standard features for the City Express LS: Dual rear sliding doors, power windows, 40/60 split rear cargo doors that open 90 and 180 degrees, solid rear doors with available tinted-glass windows, center console storage with a standard file folder bin, fold-down mobile workspace passenger seat, 20 interior cargo-mounting points, six floor-mounted D-rings, six exterior roof rack mounting points, vinyl flooring, a 150-amp alternator and a 12-volt power outlet.
The more upscale Chevrolet City Express LT starts at $24,510 plus taxes and fees. Standard on the LT model, and available on the LS, are cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, and backup sensors. Also standard on the LT are remote keyless entry with an automatic locking feature and heated, power-adjustable outside mirrors. Available is a technology package with a 5.8-inch diagonal touch-screen radio, navigation, Sirius/XM Satellite Radio (with a three-month trial), Bluetooth connectivity, a USB input jack, and a rearview camera system.
The City Express will hit Chevrolet showrooms during the fourth quarter of 2014.
