If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Some things in the USA just don’t change very much, such as die-hard Washington Redskins fans, Michael Jordan was the greatest and I hate the Dallas Cowboys. The same could also be said for full-size passenger vans, such as the venerable Chevrolet Express van, for it has stood the test of time for nearly forty years with only one major redesign happening in 1996. Remanufactured Chevy Express van engines for sale are a best seller only because there are a bunch of Express vans running around.
Over the years, the Chevrolet Express has consumed a fair share of the full-size passenger van market. Its main competition has been the Ford Econoline and the now retired Dodge Ram van. With a large variety of engine and transmission options to choose from, the Express is well-suited for those who need plenty of inside area.
The Chevrolet Express van is available in 1/2-ton (called 1500), 3/4-ton (called 2500) and 1-ton (3500) versions. The 3500 is also available with an extended wheelbase, which allows 15-passenger capacity. The LS is commonly what fleet buyers purchase, it is plain in appearance, designed for delivery purposes, with air-conditioning and a stereo as the key standard features.
Sturdy engines have always been a General motors thing and large towing capacities are some of the Express’ positive assets. The 1500 or 1/2 ton comes with a 5.3-liter V8 (310 horsepower) standard engine, while the 2500 and 3500 have a standard 6.0-liter V8 (323 hp) engine. The 5.3L motor comes coupled to a four-speed automatic overdrive transmission while the bigger V8 is matched to a six-speed transmission. The 1500 or 1/2 ton van can be had with all-wheel drive.
Saying we have Express engines for sale is the easiest way to put it. A lot of engines have been offered over the years in the Express van and it’s brother, the GMC Savana vans, while using the same engine lineup. We recommend remanufactured engines in many cases simply because they don’t cost as much as one might think. There is no better choice for peace of mind than a remanufactured engine to replace your worn out engine.
For those who like their Express vans and plan on keeping it for a while, a remanufactured engine is actually the least expensive avenue to take. Taking another avenue may not produce the results Express van owners typically expect. Take a minute and call one of our specialists and find out more about why our remanufactured engines last as long as the one that came in your Express van and run better than new.
