Stanley Steemer Picks Chevy To Meet Latest Fleet Needs

DETROIT – Stanley Steemer International, Inc., a commercial and residential carpet cleaning company, recently chose General Motors’ Chevrolet Express 2500 cargo vans as the newest additions to its U.S.-based corporate and franchise fleet. GM’s 100,000 mile/5-year transferable powertrain limited warranty led Stanley Steemer to upfit the Express 2500 cargo vans and immediately place 30 in the fleet lineup.

“Adding Stanley Steemer to our long list of fleet customers was a goal that the GM teamed worked extremely hard to achieve,” said Eric Raich, fleet account executive for GM’s Fleet and Commercial Operations. “The van’s extended wheel base for increased cargo space and lower lifecycle maintenance costs made the Express 2500 the most fitting and logical decision for what Stanley Steemer needed in their fleet vehicles.”

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 Vortec 4.8L V6 is standard on the Express Cargo 2500 and provides 280 horsepower and 296 lb-ft of torque, and can handle a payload of up to 3,058 lbs., regular wheelbase mode, and 2,848 lbs. on extended wheelbase model. 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.

“The longest 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. “When you add in drivability, fuel economy, and easily accessible cargo space, it makes this the perfect van to meet our business needs.”
