Chevrolet Express 2500 Diesel Extended Wheel Base Van

Any wise shopper will always look at what type of warranty they get before making a final buying decision. This is very true when purchasing a new vehicle especially if it is to be used for a commercial business.

Chevrolet offers their customers a good warranty package which includes the following:

  • Bumper to Bumper Limited Warranty for 36 months or 36,000 miles
  • Rust Warranty for 6 years or 100,000 miles
  • Roadside Assistance Programs for 5 years or 100,000 miles

At this time the powertrain and drivetrain warranty only applies to Chevrolet’s gas engines.

Safety Features on the Diesel 2500 Express

Standard safety features on the Chevrolet Express 2500 Diesel van include driver and passenger airbags with an on/off switch. A tire pressure monitor and daytime running lights are also included.

Driving a longer and possibly heavier van requires good stability and traction control. This is done by Chevrolet adding their Stabilitrak Electronic Stability Control System to this vehicle as a standard feature. Chevy also adds a Traction Control System powered by Stabilitrak.

Improved braking power is very important on a longer vehicle as well. The Express 2500 Diesel van comes with four disc brakes along with an ABS system. This ensures that you can stop smoothly when braking hard or when stopping on a slippery surface.

For the first six months if you purchase a new Express 2500 you will receive Onstar as a complimentary service. This can be very handy to have and you may just decide to keep the service after your initial trial is over.

Duramax Engine

The diesel engine in the 2500 Express is a Duramax one and this is known to be a very clean engine. This engine is great for the environment as it produces fewer emissions helping reduce carbon footprints.

The Duramax engine is a 6.6 L V8 that is extremely fuel efficient. Fuel efficient is a high priority these days and is probably one of the reasons why this engine is increasing in popularity each year.

Available Extras

Depending upon the type of business you have you may wish to install certain extras or options on your Express van. You can choose from basic extras like adding a heavy duty trailering package to adding an automatic locking rear differential.

You may wish to have your 2500 Diesel Express van a certain color. Metallic colors are extremely popular. Some colors such as Dark Metallic Green and Blue are available, but at an extra cost. Though this may be worth the extra cost if you are branding your company van, this way it would be easily recognizable around town.

Other options include a Bulkhead Divider Package and a Molded Hood Protector. These will need to be installed by a qualified Chevrolet dealership.

With all these options it should be easy to modify the basic Chevrolet Express 2500 Diesel Extended wheel base van. You can customize it to achieve any look and purpose that you wish.
