Description: Full-Size Crossover SportUtility Vehicle/Minivan
Options & Features
The boxy people-mover for Chevrolet carries the prominent prow of a big SUV but square side doors that glide like flank sliders of a minivan. And the stretched passenger compartment, arranged with three rows of seats for up to seven riders, has the flat floor of a minivan extending from forward bulkhead to aft cargo compartment.
Uplander is called a crossover sport van, or CSV, and offered for 2006 in three editions -- a price-leading base model, the upgraded LS and premium LT. Each orients to FWD, but the LT shows AWD traction as an option with GM's on-demand Versatrak device.
Powerplant for all is GM's 3.5-liter V6 with 200 hp, although later in 2006 the LT FWD Uplander gains an optional new 3.9-liter V6 worth 235 hp. GM's StabiliTrak system is also optional on the FWD Uplander.
