Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Uplander.

Venture's reign in the minivan segment will draw to a close with the ending of 2005, as the veteran makes way for the new Uplander. In being replaced by a crossover vehicle that combines the qualities of a traditional van with those of a rugged sport utility vehicle and a smooth-riding sedan, the Venture has basically shown itself to be a victim of the times.

However, though it can't offer the type of versatility that a crossover sport van can, the 2005 Chevy Venture can still easily handle the busy daily driving needs of families. Still dependable and still safe, there is no compromising the quality of this year's Venture.

Available Models
The 2005 Chevy Venture drops last year's regular-length and all-wheel drive versions. The lineup now consists of three front-wheel drive models: Plus, LS and LT.

Interior Features
The Chevy Venture has standard seven-passenger seating that includes a two-person second-row bench and a three-person 50/50 split folding third-row bench. LS and LT offer package options with dual captain chairs or triple buckets in the second row, plus a stowable third-row seat.

The standards are plentiful, but the options are decadent. Available for 2005 are rear-obstacle warning, GM's OnStar assistance and, for LS/LT, satellite radio and a CD/MP3 player.

Rear DVD entertainment is included on the LT, available for the LS. The system can play DVD video, DVD audio and CDs, and includes a flat, flip-down, 7-inch video screen, two wireless headphones and a wireless remote control.

Exterior Features
Power right-side and left-side doors are available for the LS and LT. So too are 16-inch chrome wheels.

The 2005 Chevy Venture continues to be powered by a 3.4-liter V6 engine that produces 185 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 210 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. Coupled to this is GM's proven Hydra-Matic 4T65-E electronically controlled 4-speed automatic overdrive transaxle.

A Sport Suspension Package for 2005 adds an air-inflator kit and Sport Suspension with automatic load leveling.

Safety and Security
All models have dual front airbags and daytime running lights. Midlevel LS models add antilock brakes and front side airbags, while top-line LS models throw in traction control.

The available rear-obstacle detection system alerts drivers of objects or people behind the vehicle with both audible and visible signals while the van is in reverse. Venture is the only product in the industry to offer both types of indicators.
