Chevy City Express headed for dealers

With competition coming from the Ford Transit Connect, it's high time Chevrolet got in on the compact hauling action and took the fight to its cross-town rival... and it's doing so with a little help from Nissan. The Chevy City Express, a badge-engineered Nissan NV200, is now arriving at dealers, giving Bowtie fans a counter to Dearborn's compact van.

"Our existing customers will love getting behind the wheel of the City Express when it's at their Chevrolet dealership," Ed Peper, GM's vice president of fleet and commercial vehicles said in a statement. "But we're most looking forward to giving potential new customers the opportunity to experience one of many Chevrolet commercial vehicles that best fit their needs."

DETROIT – Chevrolet's all-new 2015 City Express cargo van, with a starting price of $22,950, began shipping to dealerships today.

Drivers looking for cargo hauling flexibility with efficiency, and fleet managers who want value-driven capability with lower operating costs than full-size vans, are now able to purchase the vehicle for their specific needs.

"Our existing customers will love getting behind the wheel of the City Express when it's at their Chevrolet dealership," said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet & Commercial. "But we're most looking forward to giving potential new customers the opportunity to experience one of many Chevrolet commercial vehicles that best fit their needs."

To make the shopping and purchasing process easier and more convenient, Chevrolet offers web tools on Chevrolet.com that provides customization options for potential buyers.

"We understand our customers are often too busy to step away from the office to visit a dealership," said Peper. "So we give them the option to build a City Express online with their specific color, trim, and even wheels, so that they are fully aware of the cost to their business before they meet with a salesperson."

Buyers also can compare the City Express to other vehicles in the marketplace to see how it stacks up in areas like fuel economy, pricing, and safety.

The City Express will be a part of Business Choice, an incentive program that provides qualified business owners a $350 Upfit Cash allowance. Chevrolet also will offer customers ship-thru service, which sends the vehicle directly to an upfitter from the plant and the upfit vehicle is delivered directly to the dealer once complete. The ship-thru process makes it simple and convenient to upfit the City Express to meet the specific needs of the business.

City Express will be covered by Chevrolet Complete Care, which includes scheduled maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first, 5 Years/100,000 Miles of 24-Hour roadside assistance and courtesy transportation and it's covered under Chevrolet's five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, as well as a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty.
