Gross disappointment

The interior and exterior styling do not compensate for the lack of power, empty or loaded. Around town making deliveries or going to a job site with even semi-loaded, the engine lugs and doesn't respond when excelleration is needed. On the highway empty or loaded, this vehicle is a dog and takes effort to attain highway speed. Chevrolet should can the Nissan engine as mechanics rate it fair to poor. Too bad as I'm mainly a Chevy fan.

OK, for starters, I understand where Nissan was going with this vehicle and why Chevrolet co-opted it. Little cargo van, able to negotiate city streets and tight parking garages with no problem, cheap to build, easy to modify... it's like someone took a Sentra, put it on stilts and welded leaf springs in the back. The problem is, Ford upgraded the Transit Connect before these hit the streets. And I had the opportunity to drive one before I was issued "Tigger," my 2015 City Express. The differences are not just stark; they're staggering. The Transit Connect feels like a Fusion with a high roof and a big... posterior. It's planted. It's composed. It has a decent radio even if it's for listening to your boss drone on incessantly on a conference call. But it feels like you're driving a normal car. Some people like the driving position; some don't. I don't care whether I'm face-to-face with the SUV driver who thinks this is a game of Mad Max. The City Express, by comparison, feels like you're driving a econo-car on stilts. It is jittery. It is wild. No, it doesn't feel like driving a big full-size van, but when you go over speed bumps at anything more than 5 MPH, it feels like the entire van is about to pull a Herbie. This thing rides ROUGH even over the slightest of bumps. I guarantee you I'm not carrying anything near the maximum payload of this van, but it can't compare to the composed behavior of the Ford. You can look inside the van and see the copious amounts of expanding foam that separates the seams. This vehicle was built on a budget. It might be bouncy, trouncy, flouncy pouncy and full of cargo fun, but it's NOT the only one, and the competition builds a much better city cargo vehicle. Unfortunately, a lot of corporate bean-counters will be swayed by the bottom line, and a lot of massage therapists will reap the benefits of buying the cheaper option.

2015 Chevy City Express

Please, Disregard the other consumers review. The city express has a 2.0L 4 cylinder that is paired to a CVT transmission. If you have never driven a vehicle with a CVT tranny then it will take getting used to not feeling the gear changes or clunky downshifts when accelerating or getting to highway speeds. We've used a fleet of these for hotshots and have yet to see a problem from them. We normally carry around a 1,500lb load in them, which the city express handles without a problem. Only real complaint is that the vehicles only come with a driver side armrest, which is fine for solo drivers. But if you have a long haul requiring tandems you'd wish the additional arm rest was there. Overall satisfied with Chevy's initial entry into the "City" styled delivery vehicle.
