The changes to the Chevrolet Express for 2015 for both the Cargo and Passenger versions are minimal. There are some sound-system upgrades with digital AM/FM radios with auxiliary ports, a 110-volt power outlet and side-cut keys are standard, there is some LED lighting and you can pretty it up with a couple of new exterior colors.
The 2014 Chevy Express Van cargo van can now be equipped with 5-passenger seating featuring a bulkhead partition between the 2nd-row seat and the cargo area. Side curtain airbags protect rear-seat passengers while extended-wheelbase models include rear air conditioning. Passenger vans add power windows and locks as standard equipment.
Changes for 2010 include E85 capability and variable valve timing on the 4.8-liter, 5.3-liter and 6.0-liter engines. Express Van 2500 and 3500 models receive the Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed transmission and revised rear-axle ratios for improved fuel economy and acceleration. A remote engine starter is now available as well.
Changes for 2009 are minor and include some new 17-inch wheel and tire options, an engine oil cooler added to the 4.3-liter V6, and a transmission oil cooler as standard on applications exceeding a 14,000 pound GCWR.
Whether it's hauling a lot of people, a lot of stuff or various combinations of the two, the 2015 Chevrolet Express
Van has a proven track record as a known commodity. There are much newer and larger alternatives, including the Nissan NV, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Ford Transit and Ram ProMaster. But none of them have the hauling power offered by the Express Van's Duramax turbodiesel V8. Passenger versions can be outfitted to seat up to 15 people, or the Cargo version offers up to 285 cubic feet of space. Thanks to the aftermarket "upfitter" industry, the 2015 Chevy Express can be equipped to suit an extremely wide range of applications, such as for plumbers, electricians, florists or delivery.
Pros: "you can accessorize and not feel it is a waste."
Cons: "GPM, light wiring, tire balancing"

"A mechanic gave me a list of things in sequential order that will go wrong with the van. When the tranny goes it is time to get rid of it. Do not let the oil change people put in the wrong antifreeze it will cost you $700 for new seals, The driver seat goes so start looking for a seat. This is a cargo van and either seat will work on either side. Just eliminate the arm rest. Rust occurrs at the bottom of each door. The steering wheel got chewed up so fix every small tear early. GPM is about 16-18. I wanted a larger or a second gas tank for long trips. Rides very well full or empty, fast or slow. I put 4 studded snows and went EVERYWHERE during the previous year with too much snow. Trailer package with trailer having the brakes worked out very well and hauled on occassion shingle trailers with that small 8 cylinder engine. When the van is totally empty, the pedal to the metal occurrs frequently as it really goes. The tranny had an eight year clunk glitch and it finally went. No park, no reverse so it'll cost $1300 and now at 14 years old $1300 is all it is worth via Blue Book. Had a stray current the last few years so it lets you know when you get out of the van. Ignition electronic part on top of engine went a month ago and was a cheap fix. Remember to change the tranny fluid. The water pump was changed out.The rest was normal maintenance. It is a 3/4 ton van and it hauled so many tools it squatted the 80# tires for 6 out of 8 years. Pulled a 1.5 ton trailer without brakes."
"This is a great truck. Had mine since 2005 (it is a 2002)and it had 30000 miles on it when I bought it. The inside is more comfortable than you would think but it is not the most manueverable in smaller spaces. It is great on gas gets 15 to 17 miles to the gallon but the tank is huge so when you do fill up all the way it will take a dent out of your wallet. I am a DJ and I haul light to heavy loads of lighting and sound equipment and this truck is used 5 days a week so it gets used hard. Jobs can sometimes be out of state and I can't tell you how much of an improvement this is from our last couple vans we had. I do not have to worry about it breaking down which is a big load of my mind. Don't get me wrong you still have the normal stuff just not the major stuff. It is not the greatest truck on wet grass or mud or ice or snow but as long as you have good tires and don't let them get bold you will do fine."
Cons: "high fuel prices- gets about 15 hwy miles/gallon"

"This Chevy Van is the longest lasting vehicle I have ever owned. I am a contractor and boater. I needed a vehicle with powerful towing capabilities and the Chevy Express delivered. I have had no major mechanical problems, only general maintenance and normal wear and tear work. I have no complaints. I would purchase this vehicle again. If you're on the fence between two vehicles, you won't regret the investment in this model Chevy."
