(2000 model shown)

Astro

Some 20 years after its original introduction, Chevrolet's rear-drive minivan continues for 2005 without changes. The Astro shares platforms and components with the GMC Safari, and like its corporate cousin comes powered by a 190-horsepower, 4.3-liter V-6 that teams with a four-speed-automatic transmission. Its rear-drive truck-based underpinnings makes it the only small van to consider if you want to tow a trailer or boat up to 4900 pounds with any degree of frequency, which is a claim that no car-based front-drive model can make. An all-wheel-drive version is available for more-secure roadholding on wet or snowy roads. Buyers can choose a conventional tailgate or optional horizontal-opening dual rear Dutch doors for cargo-carrying convenience. While the Astro doesn't offer the myriad creature comforts most minivan buyers have come to expect, it's a favorite vehicle among van converters who can turn what is otherwise a fairly plain workman-like vehicle into a virtual home-away-from-home on wheels.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
