Positioned in the middle of the full-size van category, the Chevrolet Sportvan had long appealed to buyers who prized utility and dependability rather than styling. The Sportvan was equipped to seat up to 15 passengers, and was popular with shuttle services and van pools. Competitors in this niche consisted of its corporate twin GMC Vandura and Rally Wagon, the Ford Club Wagon and the Dodge Ram Van.

Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]

1991[edit | edit source]

Also just known as the "Chevy Van", the Sportvan was available in both long wheelbase and short wheelbase models, each with two body styles -- G10 and G20.

1995[edit | edit source]

The 1995 Chevrolet Sportvan celebrated the beginning of its fourth decade with a series of modest improvements. The most important of these was the upgrading of the top-of-the-line Beauville trim level, which now boasted such new features as power door locks, power windows, tilt steering wheel, electronic speed control and electric side mirrors.

Available in three body styles (G20 Regular, G30 Regular and G30 Extended) on two wheelbases, the 1995 Chevy Sportvan continued to do what it had always done best: carry up to 15 passengers and tow up to 10,000 pounds. Though the G10 series has been dropped, the two trim levels remained the standard and the top-of-the-line Beauville.

The Chevy Sportvan offered a wide range of engines. There were four gasoline engines offered: the standard equipment 4.3-liter ohv V6 and three optional ohv V8s, the 5.0-liter, 5.7-liter and 7.4-liter. In addition, a pair of diesel engines were also available: a light-duty 6.5-liter ohv V8 and a heavy-duty 6.5-liter ohv V8.

The standard transmission for the Sportvan was a 4-speed automatic overdrive, available either of light-duty or heavy-duty versions.

1996[edit | edit source]

This was the last model year for the Chevrolet Sportvan, upon being replaced by the new Chevrolet Express. It was essentially a carryover model from 1995.
