about as contemporary as possible for a rolling box
Kelley Blue Book
A 2003 redesign included revamped taillamps
Low-grade interior plastics, bland cabin design
Most of the 2008 Chevrolet Express reviews read by TheCarConnection.com team agree: The time for this full-size van’s styling is gone, if it ever was here in the first place.
To its credit, "the 2008 Chevrolet Express van is about as contemporary as possible for a rolling box...[with] rounded edges, high-mounted side taillights and flush side glass," reports Kelley Blue Book. According to Edmunds, "New body styling that featured high-mounted taillights...[and] a new exterior look [makes] the  Chevrolet Express hard to overlook when compared with Ford's dated Econoline." This is largely because "a 2003 redesign included revamped taillamps and upscale reflector-type headlights," states Cars.com.
The Chevrolet Express 2008's interior is designed more for utility than beauty; Edmunds notes the 2008 Chevy Express has "low-grade interior plastics, bland cabin design," adding that the Chevrolet Express 2008 "interior is built for pure functionality, and while it may not be pretty, it gets the job done." Kelley Blue Book details "a makeover this year," in which the 2008 Chevy Express replaced its "aged steering wheel [and] dash controls," while receiving "new fabrics for the seats." Motor Trend suggests that the 2008 Chevrolet Express' interior is "ideal for peewee football and florists."
The 2008 Chevrolet Express is handy in accommodating large numbers of passengers; beyond that, there are certainly better solutions available.
