The fuel economy for the 2015 City Express cargo van, Chevrolet’s first entry into the small van segment, will offer an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, resulting in 25 mpg combined, the company reported Thursday.
The vehicle’s 2.0L dual-overhead cam inline-four-cylinder engine matched to a continuously variable transmission allows the vehicle to achieve greater efficiency on the road, especially when driving in the city.
“The 2015 Chevrolet City Express is designed for our customers who are looking for a small, easy-to-maneuver, fuel-efficient, cargo-carrying vehicle,” says Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet & Commercial. “The fuel economy of the City Express will help stretch their dollar at the pump and give them the flexibility to invest the savings back into their business.”
The 2015 City Express LS starts at $22,950, MSRP excluding tax, title, license, optional equipment and dealer fees.
Standard features on the LS model include dual rear sliding doors, power windows, 40/60 split rear cargo doors that open 90 and 180 degrees, solid rear doors with available tinted-glass windows, center console storage with a standard file folder bin, fold-down mobile workspace passenger seat, 20 interior cargo-mounting points, six floor-mounted D-rings, six exterior roof rack mounting points, vinyl flooring, a 150-amp alternator and a 12-volt power outlet.
The City Express offers 122.7 cubic feet of customizable cargo space, a tight turning diameter of only 36.7 feet and an estimated payload capacity of 1,500 pounds.
The new addition to Chevrolet’s stable of fleet vehicles will arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter.
