Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Venture.

The 2004 Chevy Venture minivan comes in a regular length model and an extended length version. Extended length models are bigger and offer available all-wheel drive, but the regular length Venture isn't lacking in any respect.

For 2004, there are more optional equipment pieces to be had with the Chevy Venture. XM Satellite Radio and a CD/MP3 player are both newly offered, as are captain's chairs on LS models. There are also three new exterior colors and an LS Easy Order Package.

Available Models
The regular length 2004 Chevy Venture is offered in two trims: Plus and LS. The extended length Venture is covered in another review.

Interior Features
The Chevy Venture is designed to allow for easy entry and exit. After all, the kids don't file in and out in an orderly fashion; they stampede their way through.

To this end, the 2004 Chevy Venture has a low step-in height and standard dual sliding rear doors. Dual power sliding doors are available. They provide easy access to the spacious interior of the Venture. Available separate front and rear HVAC controls also add to its custom comfort.

A DVD-based entertainment system heads the list of available options. The system has a 1.5-second "video memory" which prevents potholes, uneven terrain and other rough road surfaces from interfering with the sound and picture. In other words, it will keep the kids happy and quiet for hours.

Exterior Features
The 2004 Chevy Venture has an available rear-parking assist system. It alerts the driver of objects or people behind the vehicle with both audio and visual signals while the van is in reverse, making Venture the only vehicle on the road to offer both types of indicators.

Powering the way for the 2004 regular length Venture is a 3.4-liter V6 engine. It has the energy to deliver 185 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 210 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. Mated to this engine is a 4-speed electronic automatic transmission with overdrive.

With power rack-and-pinion steering, drivers can maneuver the Venture as though it were a sedan. Of course, it does not handle like a roadster, but it doesn't feel like a semi either.

Safety and Security
The Chevy Venture offers four-wheel antilock brakes, driver and front-passenger airbags, driver and passenger side-impact airbags, the LATCH child seat system and child security rear door locks. Integrated child safety seats are standard on all vans except for those with captain's chairs.
