The L8T engine remains as an available powerplant option for the Express Passenger and Express Cutaway configurations of the 2024 Chevy Express.
The 2024 Chevy Express remains largely unchanged from previous model years of the Bow Tie’s commercial van, but the unavailability of the L8T engine on the Cargo configuration is one of the changes GM has recently introduced for the vehicle’s latest model year.
GM Authority has also uncovered in-depth 2024 Chevy Express pricing details, including the prices of a long list of variants of the model. The 2024 model year has introduced significant price increases compared to the 2023 Express, ranging from $1,600 and $2,900 with $2,700 to $2,900 being most typical.
The 2024 Chevy Express will also get two new transmissions replacing two of the current transmissions. The 8-speed automatic transmission (RPO code MTH) will oust the current 8-speed automatic transmission (RPO code M5U) as the transmission paired with the V6 LV1 engine.
Meanwhile, the 8-speed heavy-duty automatic transmission (RPO code N8X) will displace the 6-speed heavy-duty automatic transmission tagged with RPO code MYD for 2024 Chevy Express units equipped with the V8 L8T engine.
As a reminder, two powerplant options are available for the 2024 Chevy Express, with the atmospheric 4.3L V6 LV1 gasoline engine developing 276 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 298 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm, and the atmospheric 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine rated at 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. It is the latter engine that is no longer available on the 2024 Chevy Express Cargo variant specifically.
As for structure, the 2024 Chevy Express rides on the GMT 610 platform. Production of all Chevy Express model years takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, though the Chevy Express Cutaway is also produced by Navistar at a different facility in Ohio.
Production of the 2024 Chevy Express will begin early in September.
