7 Passenger Chevy/GMC by Explorer Van

The Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana by Explorer are the most classic vans in our line. The best selling full size vans on the market offer the best in power and towing while the custom exterior and interior appointments by Explorer keep the whole family comfortable and stylish. Compared to any full size SUV, the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana by Explorer is a step up in every sense of the word.

Built on the sturdy and safe 2500 Chassis, these vans are no larger than a Chevrolet Suburban or GMC Yukon XL but their shorter front end and tighter turning radius make getting around town a synch. You'll love the uncluttered interior which allows for maximum legroom, headroom, and storage space. Using yours for a long trip or vacation? Perfect. Comfortably fit your family of 7 in plush leather seats and fire up the 29" HDTV for an entertaining and peaceful drive for both the passengers and driver! Plan on using yours as an everyday driver for hauling the kids around. Great! Loading and unloading children of all ages is easy with the floor space, headroom, and wide center aisle. The Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana by Explorer, the perfect marriage of size and sophistication.
