The 2019 Chevy Express is the lucky recipient of a few minor yet notable changes and updates.
First up is a change in the color palette: the Graphite Metallic exterior color replaces with Shadow Gray Metallic.
In addition, all 2019 Chevy Express models (Cargo, Cutaway and Passenger) receive the following three new safety features:
And lastly, the Express Cutaway 4500 2WT model with the 177-inch wheelbase becomes available with the School Bus Package. Those with a keen knowledge of the model nomenclature within GM’s order system will know the model in question as the model number CG33903 2WT. From what we understand, it has been a long-standing request of fleets and upfitters to make the model available with the school bus package.

About Chevrolet Express
The Chevrolet Express is a line of full-size vans offered in cargo, passenger, and cutaway configurations. It slots above the Chevrolet City Express compact van, which GM sourced from Nissan and discontinued after the 2018 model year.
The first-generation Express ran from the 1996-2002 model years and was based on the GMT 600 platform. In 2003, a facelifted model was launched on what is known as the GMT 610 platform. This updated model remains on sale today, albeit the range has undergone a few updates to powertrain and minor styling changes. The Express also has a GMC-badged twin – the GMC Savana.
It is currently unclear whether or when General Motors will overhaul the Express, which is now the automaker’s oldest product by a long shot. The 2019 model year represents the model’s 17th year on the market.
The Chevrolet Express is built primarily at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri operated by GM USA. In early 2017, Navistar began contract assembly of the Express cutaway in its factory in Springfield, Ohio. The move is part of GM’s plan to boost the model’s production capacity and supply/availability.
