Maybe if you stand it on the side and slide it all the way to the dash from what I have read from the specs. I'm getting a call from my sales guy the minute they unload one from the transporter. Todd

I'm a van guy.

Looks like if you want to transport dry wall you might have to cut it, if you do renovations and have to transport it frequently then you might as well look into getting a bigger vehicle.

At least if you get a sprinter so you can easily transport things like that it opens you up to more things. If it's a once in a while thing, just rent a trailer.

Ok so Chevy announced pricing for the City Express. For a van that is comparably WORSE, Chevy came in higher on pricing. $22,950 for the City Express vs $22 Flat for the Transit Connect.

I'm pretty sure the Chevy is handicapped by Nissan however, NV retails ar $20,290 so you know Nissan has to protect their product and impose a premium on Chevy's use of NV...

Engines:

City Express: 2.0L DOHC I4
Transit Connect: 2.5L DOHC I4 or 1.6L EcoBoost I4

Power/Torque:

City Express: 131 @ 5200 rpm/139 @ 4800 rpm
Transit Connect: 169 @ 6000 rpm/171 @ 4500 rpm or 178 @ 5700 rpm/184 @ 2500 rpm

Fuel Economy (MPG):

City Express: 24 city/25 highway/24 combined
Transit Connect: 21 city/29 highway/24 combined (2.5L) or 22 city/30 highway/25 combined (1.6L T)

Max Payload/GVWR:

City Express: 1500 lbs/4751 lbs
Transit Connect: 1710 lbs/5280 lbs
