Following an announcement made a few days ago, Chevrolet has publicly introduced the 2015 City Express at the Chicago Auto Show.

Described by Chevrolet as being a "versatile urban work van", the 2015 City Express is actually based on the Nissan NV200 and is powered exclusively by a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter gasoline engine rated at just 131 bhp (98 kW) and 188 Nm (139 lb-ft). Output is delivered to both axles through a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and will be able to offer a payload capacity of 1,500 lbs (680 kg).

Chevrolet mentions the van benefits from a cargo capacity of 122.7 cubic feet (3,474 liters) and comes bundled with twenty cargo mounting points as well as six D-rings mounted on the floor. The modest cabin can be configured with cruise control, keyless entry, USB & Bluetooth connectivity support, a rearview camera and GPS navigation. As standard it gets a fold-down passenger seat and a driver information center while for more money customers can order tinted windows.

Pricing of the 2015 Chevrolet City Express will be announced close to the van's market release scheduled for this fall.
