The 2024 Chevy Express van is introducing several changes from the 2023 model year, including new transmissions and availability changes to engines for certain configurations.
Now, GM Authority has learned, the 2024 Chevy Express is no longer available to order with the following infotainment system options (relevant RPO codes listed in parenthesis):
- AM/FM stereo with MP3 player and USB port (U0H)
- SiriusXM Radio (U2K)
- Bluetooth for phone (UPF)
- Wi-Fi Hotspot capable (VV4)
This leaves the 2024 Chevy Express with only a single infotainment option, the base audio system consisting of the AM/FM stereo with MP3 player (RPO code U0F). Features of this stereo include seek-and-scan, digital clock, TheftLock, random select, auxiliary jack and two front-door speakers.
Pricing for the 2024 Chevy Express has also been uncovered by GM Authority, with significant price hikes expected across the lineup of variants. All trims and configurations will cost more than they did for the 2023 model year without exception. The increases range from $1,600 to $2,900 depending on the variant, with most prices raised by $2,700 to $2,900.
GM has also replaced the previous transmissions equipped as standard in the 2023 model year and earlier with two new transmissions for the 2024 Chevy Express. The V6 engine option will be paired with a new 8-speed automatic transmission (RPO code MTH). Meanwhile, the V8 engine will upgrade from a 6-speed to an 8-speed heavy-duty automatic transmission (RPO code N8X) for cog swaps.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Express is motivated by one of two engine options, including the atmospheric 4.3L V6 LV1 gasoline engine rated at 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 cranking out 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. However, the Express Cargo is no longer available to order with the V8 engine.
Under the body panels, the 2024 Chevy Express relies on the GMT 610 platform for structure. Production of all Chevy Express model years takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, with the Chevy Express Cutaway built by Navistar at a different Ohio facility.
Production of the 2024 Chevy Express is slated to kick off in September.
