2010 Chevrolet Express Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2010 Chevrolet Express was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 7.4

The 2010 Chevrolet Express has a basic interior, but most reviewers say it’s well-suited to work. Materials aren't luxurious, but they are durable and the controls are easy to use.  Still, if your business requires that you routinely handle complex tasks on the road, you may want to check out competitors like the Ford Econoline and Ford Transit Connect. Both have more high-tech work options that allow you to work with (and even print) electronic files right from the car, track fleet activity and keep track of tools. By comparison, the Express has fewer onboard tools to help manage work.

  • "Interior is workman-like. Most surfaces are made of budget-grade plastic." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The Chevy's interior is built for functionality, not fashion. All controls are simple to use and well within reach of the driver, but they're far from stylish." -- Edmunds

Seating

The seating in the Chevy Express is basic. In the cargo van, there are only two front seats.  However, on the extended model passenger van, the Express can handle up to 15 people, making it a good option for shuttle services, church groups, and anyone else who needs to transport a crowd.  While the front seats get some complaints for limited legroom, most reviews say the rear seats are surprisingly comfortable.

  • "The front footwells remain as cramped as ever." -- Edmunds
  • "Available seating for 15 makes the Express Van the ultimate commuter vehicle." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Passenger models offer generous room in all positions and firm, supportive seats." -- Consumer Guide

Interior Features

The Express is short on interior features, which is typical for a work vehicle. While a driver's information center does display maintenance information, competitors like the Ford Transit Connect offer more high-tech work solutions, including fleet monitoring systems, in-car computing solutions for tracking work and printing invoices, and even a tool tracking system to insure that nothing is left behind.  Still, if all you need is a simple but rugged van, the Express should fit your needs.

  • "A driver information center in the instrument cluster displays instructions for maintenance and warnings when the vehicle's transmission is overheating, or if a situation such as a theft attempt has taken place." -- Cars.com
  • "The Express Van's passenger models received a major makeover last year, replacing the aged steering wheel, dash controls, window switches and message center. New fabrics for the seats complete the update. The big glass side panels make it easy to see what's around you, and their deep tint foils prying eyes." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The dashboard features legible round gauges and simple, mostly handy controls, though the driver's power-seat switches on the front of the cushion are tough to reach." -- Consumer Guide

Cargo

The Chevrolet Express has plenty of cargo space. If you chose the cargo van model with the regular wheelbase, there's 217 cubic feet of space and a payload rating of just over 2,000 pounds. The cargo space increases to 237 cubic feet on extended models.  The ratings are the same for passenger vans, but to get the full use of the space, you'll need to remove the seats, something that reviewers say is at least a two person job, as the rear seats are bulky.  While the cargo room is good, a few reviewers point out that the roof isn't as high was it could be.  That means walking around the cargo area requires some stooping, and if you wanted to stand in the back and work, you could get uncomfortable fast.  For a more ergonomic stand and work space, check out the Dodge Sprinter. Not only is it easier to move around it, it offers up to 600 cubic feet of cargo space.

  • "The wide-opening rear cargo doors ease loading. The 60/40 split driver-side doors are a helpful addition, as is the new driver-side access panel on cargo models. Maximum available cargo volume is a whopping 237.3 cu ft on extended models. The front row could use more small-item storage." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Those needing room to stand and work may be happier with the Dodge Sprinter." -- Kelley Blue Book
