The 2008 Chevrolet Express has standard and optional equipment that is adequate, if not outstanding.

TheCarConnection.com notes a plethora of Chevrolet Express 2008 trims and packages that would confound Stephen Hawking himself. The beauty—for commercial customers at least—is that the Express can be configured closely to the needs of the driver.

Car and Driver reports (for starters) that the base 2008 Chevrolet Express is "the Express LS," with rear- and all-wheel–drive options. The 2008 Chevy Express LS "comes standard with air conditioning, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, vinyl seats, eight-passenger seating, a 60/40 swing-out side door, power steering, daytime running lights, automatic headlights, light tinted glass, intermittent wipers, 16-inch steel wheels, curtain airbags, rubberized vinyl floors, a two-speaker AM/FM stereo, and a 301-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 with a four-speed automatic transmission."

ConsumerGuide adds that all 2008 Chevy Express trims come with a "black vinyl floor covering [and] theft-deterrent system."

Some of the options for higher-level Chevrolet Express 2008 trims as reported by Car and Driver include "metallic paint ($150), cloth upholstery ($175), a tilting-steering-column and cruise-control package ($395), a heavy-duty battery ($60), an engine-block heater ($75), a heavy-duty alternator ($75), a dual-note horn ($15), a trailer hitch and connections ($265), a trailer wiring harness ($65), rear air conditioning ($870), carpeted floor ($185), a rear-window defogger ($155), a rear heater ($295), power door locks ($250), a CD player ($205), a smoker's package ($35), a deluxe swing-out console ($20), chrome front and rear bumpers ($65), gray painted wheel covers ($60), and 16-inch chrome-styled steel wheels ($310)."

Moving up to the top-of-the-line 2008 Chevy Express LT trim, additional 2008 Chevrolet Express options include "six-way power-adjustable driver's seat ($275), a six-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo with MP3 capability ($355; $555 with a six-CD changer), a sliding side door ($150), and heated external mirrors ($115 without power; $155 with power)."

Conclusion

The 2008 Chevrolet Express offers mix-and-match features made for commercial users; everyday drivers will be confused--and  better served by a minivan anyway.

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.
