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 and 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.
