People that are not affected do not normally care about cargo vans, such as the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana, but I’m just wondering.
Has GM given any word on a next generation of these vans? Are they discontinuing them? Do you think they will move towards European styling like Ford is doing with the T series? They seem outdated, but I’ve heard no word on a remodel.

I wish they would do a small cargo van (like the transitconnect) based off the opel combo. but if they brought over the bigger ones I hope they do some major styling changes!

Ages ago when GMI once had a working product outline, the GMT601’s were to be updated in 2010 to 2012 with an interior lifted from the GMT900’s.
As of late, and like the G-vans before them, they probably will continue to soilder onward for another decade without much significant upgrades.
As for smaller vans, well, I’ve always felt the Orlando was suitable for a cargo version.

A small Transt type cargo van would be good for the US market.

I thought that GM will bring Opel Movano as a Express replacement. Express is outdated with over decade and a half on the market with no body change.

Did the next Chevrolet Express be solde globally or just in America?
It would be interesting for Chevrolet to propose vans for the global market;

I think it’s safe to say that, even though the Express/Savana represent something close to half of the market share in their class, they need to replaced as soon as possible with a vehicle containing a modern platform, chassis, and drive/cab configurations… such as the Movano:

but then again if these 2 vans go away then what about for the conversion van market?

I dont think I will give up my G-vans any time soon…
Ive got a ’92 G30 454 EXT & a ’93 G30 454 4X4 EXT…1 for the dirt & 1 for the streets

Dodge gave up it’s full size vans a while ago. Ford discontinued THEIR Full size / E-series vans for 2015. GM already cut the 1500 series vans, leaving only the 2500’s and 3500’s and this should be a warning that these will be going some time soon too. There are other van designs that use a lot less fuel and can take around the same amount of space. It’s because they weigh less. I think gm is waiting to see if they can increase profits by being the only old school full size van around anymore but I predict that they will learn what Dodge and Ford did. Therefore, I cannot see these vans continuing past the 2016 model year. You better get one now if you want one!
