April 30, 2010

DETROIT - Stanley Steemer International, Inc., a commercial and residential carpet cleaning company, recently added 30 General Motors' Chevrolet Express 2500 cargo vans to its U.S.-based corporate and franchise fleet.

"[GM's] powertrain warranty and exceptional flexibility for our upfitting variations were two of the main factors that led us to choose the Express Cargo 2500," said Sean Vrenna, Stanley Steemer engineer.

Drivability, fuel economy, easily accessible cargo space, and lower lifecycle maintenance costs were also contributing factors in Stanley Steemer adding the vans to the fleet.    

The Chevrolet Express 2500 has 225.1 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, and the extended wheelbase models offer 261.6 cubic feet of space. The Express Cargo 2500 also features standard passenger-side and rear swing-out doors that open wide for easy access.

The Express Cargo also comes with a Hydra-Matic 6L90 6-speed automatic transmission and revised rear axles to help improve low-rpm torque, highway fuel economy and overall drivability, according to GM.
