Trailering Special Equipment Package

If you intend to use your Express cargo van for towing, we recommend the available Trailering Special Equipment Package.

How to Find the Perfect Fit

The technical innovation and legendary strength of Chevrolet can pay off for you whether you need a full-size van to put your business on wheels or you need a delivery vehicle. The cargo volume of load floor length you need will dictate the selection of a regular or long wheelbase model. Next, determine the payload weight to be carried and select one of several Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (GVWRs) to handle your requirements.
