Chevrolet has officially unveiled the 2015 City Express, ahead of its debut at the Chicago Auto Show later today.

Based on the Nissan NV200, the City Express has a familiar design but is distinguished by a new front bumper and a revised grille.

The interior is pretty bland but it has a three-spoke steering wheel, a driver information center and a fold-down passenger seat. Options include remote keyless entry, cruise control, reverse sensors and tinted side windows. The model can also be equipped with a Technology package that includes GPS navigation, a rearview camera and USB/Bluetooth connectivity.

Since the van was designed for hauling, it comes equipped with twenty cargo mounting points and six floor-mounted D-rings. It also has a cargo capacity of 122.7 cubic feet (3,474 liters) and a payload capacity of approximately 1,500 pounds (680 kg).

Motivation is provided by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 131 bhp (98 kW) and 139 lb-ft (188 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a continuously variable transmission which sends power to the front wheels.

The Chevrolet City Express will go on sale this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
