There has been no Express Cargo Van safety review from either the NHTSA or the IIHS. The van gets the basics in terms of safety gear, but not much more.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Standard mechanical safety features include ABS, EBD, stability and traction control, and six airbags: dual front, front side, and side curtain. Naturally, a rearview camera comes standard, but if you want any of the other safety features, you need to pay up. As part of the available packages or standalone features, blind-spot alert, lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, and rear parking sensors can be added on, although each requires a number of additional changes to be made before they become compatible.

There is no accredited dependability rating for the Express, although it has received a fair number of complaints. There have been no recalls for 2022 and 2023 models so far, but two for 2021 models. These were for tires that could suddenly lose air due to being over-cured, as well as a positive battery cable terminal that could short, possibly leading to a fire. The tire issue affected 2020 and 2019 models, too. It's somewhat disconcerting that a van this old, which gets very few updates, is still suffering from any manufacturing problems. Nevertheless, Chevrolet offers a 36,000-mile/36-month basic warranty on new purchases, while the powertrain warranty and roadside assistance plan are valid for 60,000 miles/five years. A corrosion warranty also runs for 36,000 miles/three years, and the first scheduled maintenance service is also thrown in.
