Chevrolet Astro for sale
For those searching for a reliable and comfortable used van, the Chevrolet Astro is worth considering. This highly popular vehicle was sold from 1985 through 2005 under the umbrella of General Motors. The Chevrolet Astro was sold alongside the GMC Safari, and the two vans are virtually identical aside from badging. The Chevrolet Astro was available in multiple configurations with the three-door van being available for passenger and cargo purposes. While surviving for two generations, the Chevrolet Astro was discontinued due to the declining market demand for passenger vans.
The first-generation Chevrolet Astro
During the mid-80s, Chrysler was making a splash in the automobile industry with their popular line of minivans. As such, General Motors reacted with the release of the Chevrolet Astro. Released with a marketing slogan claiming “Life is too big for a minivan”, the Chevrolet Astro was significantly larger than Chrysler minivans. Built on the GM M-body platform, the Chevrolet Astro could seat as many as eight passengers. Initially launched with a rear-wheel-drive chassis, the all-wheel-drive option became available in a 1990 upgraded trim level.
The second-generation Chevrolet Astro
With the Chevrolet Astro for sale for a decade already, it was time for the van to receive updates. In 1995, newer models received an extended nose to help the vehicle resemble a full-size van. For the remainder of its production, the Chevrolet Astro remained relatively unchanged and was only available with one engine option, a 4.3L V6. While the Chevrolet Astro was supposed to be discontinued in 2002, good sales managed to keep the van in production for a few more years, giving fans a wider range of model years to choose from.
