The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chevrolet Express is a basic workhorse that is capable of getting the big, unglamorous jobs done. The 2008 Dodge Sprinter is very different from traditional full-size vans, but its fuel-efficient engine and space-efficient interior make it the smart choice.
