GM Authority has learned the 2023 Chevy Express will begin rolling off the assembly line at its Wentzville plant on August 15th, 2022. It’s currently not clear when production of the current 2022 model-year Chevy Express will wind down at the facility.
The current 2022 Chevy Express can be had with one of three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 4.3L V6 LV1 gasoline engine, rated at 276 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 298 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm, the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, rated at 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, and finally, the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 181 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 369 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm.
The above-mentioned 4.3L V6 gasoline engine and 2.8L I4 diesel engine both route power through the GM eight-speed automatic transmission, while the 6.6L V8 gasoline engine connects to the GM six-speed heavy-duty automatic transmission. The utility van rides on the GMT 610 platform. While production of the Chevy Savana Cargo, Passenger and Cutaway models takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, the Express Cutaway is also produced by Navistar at a separate facility in Springfield, Ohio.
GM is not expected to introduce any major changes or updates to the Chevy Express for the 2023 model year. The van could be set to receive a small price increase, however, as GM just recently made the 2022 model-year Express $400 more expensive across the board amid mounting parts and logistics costs.
