2005 Chevy Express - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Express.

Big vans like the 2005 Chevy Express offer no-frills, heavy-duty cargo and passenger-carrying ability. They have big, strong engines, durable construction features and plenty of space. That pretty much sums up the story of the 2005 Chevrolet Express, regular length version.

The regular-wheelbase Express gets the sole upgrade to the line for 2005. It is the addition of StabiliTrak on 12-passenger models. This follows the introduction of StabiliTrak on extended-wheelbase 12 and 15-passenger models during the 2004 model year.

Available Models
The 2005 regular length Chevy Express is offered in four models: G1500, H1500, G2500 and G3500.

Interior Features
The 2005 Chevy Express regular length has a wheelbase of 135 inches. ½-ton G1500 and H1500 models, ¾-ton G2500 models and 1-ton G3500 models all have the ability to sit up to twelve passengers. In addition, there is a massive 267.3 cubic feet of cargo space to work with.

It's all about functional equipment with the Express, as opposed to frills and useless pleasantries. Express has integrated armrests, door pull handles, window and lock control switches and mirrors. Front doors include storage pockets.

The Express also has an added storage tray, twin trip odometers, a second power outlet, a third console cupholder, loop-style coat hooks and durable carpeting. Its wide rear cargo-door openings and low step-in heights are two other practical features.

Exterior Features
Regular length 2005 Express models have two swing-open rear cargo doors and, on the passenger side, either 60/40 doors or a sliding door. 60/40 doors on the driver side are optional.

Trusty Vortec power is chosen to drive the Express stable of workhorses. H1500 models have added security with standard all-wheel drive; all other Express trims use a rear-wheel drive setup. 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission with torque converter is spread across the lineup.

G1500 models feature a 4.3-liter Vortec V6 engine with 195 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. AWD H1500s have a 5.3-liter Vortec V8 with 295 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque (optional with G1500).

Larger models have added power. The G2500 comes with a 4.8-liter Vortec V8 with 285 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. 1-ton G3500 models are equipped with a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 with 300 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque. This engine is optional with G2500s.

Safety and Security
The 2005 Chevy Express has 4-wheel antilock disc brakes with a Hydroboost hydraulic assist power brake booster. Additional safety items include dual stage front airbags, three-point safety belts, the LATCH child seat system and available OnStar services.
