Chevrolet: City Express to get 24 mpg in city driving

Aug. 18, 2014

According to Chevrolet, the new 2015 City Express cargo van will achieve a combined EPA-estimated 25 mpg, including 24 mpg in city driving. The van is estimated to receive 26 mpg on the highway, Chevrolet said.

The City Express features a 2.0L dual-overhead cam inline-four-cylinder engine matched to a continuously variable transmission allows the vehicle to achieve greater efficiency on the road, especially when driving in the city, the company pointed out.

“The 2015 Chevrolet City Express is designed for our customers who are looking for a small, easy-to-maneuver, fuel-efficient, cargo-carrying vehicle,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet & Commercial. “The fuel economy of the City Express will help stretch their dollar at the pump and give them the flexibility to invest the savings back into their business.”

The vehicle includes a two-year/24,000-mi. (whichever comes first) standard maintenance.

The 2015 Chevrolet City Express LS starts at $22,950 MSRP excluding tax, title, license, optional equipment and dealer fees. Standard features on the LS model include dual rear sliding doors, power windows, 40/60 split rear cargo doors that open 90 and 180 degrees, solid rear doors with available tinted-glass windows, center console storage with a standard file folder bin, fold-down mobile workspace passenger seat, 20 interior cargo-mounting points, six floor-mounted D-rings, six exterior roof rack mounting points, vinyl flooring, a 150-amp alternator and a 12-volt power outlet.

The latest addition to Chevrolet’s stable of fleet vehicles will arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter, offering 122.7 cu. ft. of customizable cargo space, a tight turning diameter of only 36.7 ft. and an estimated payload capacity of 1,500 lbs.
