The Chevy Uplander is one of many models produced by the General Motors. It was designed as a replacement for the Chevy Venture and Astro Van. It was introduced into the market in 2005. This was the last van to have a gearshift on the steering column. The 2005 version came with an engine which offered a 3.5 liter V6 motor having a 200 horsepower. It came with the four doors setting dominant in most other cars but the eight passenger option was not available. This V6 engine was also used in other Chevy versions including the Transverse which was the successor of the Uplander. The used Uplander engine for this model can be found on the ASAP motors website still in good conditions. This model also offered the front wheel and four wheel drive options which were also an option in the Chevy Trailblazer EXT.
The Uplander also had another optional engine which was the 3.9 liter LGD V6 engine. This model was built on the same platform as the Pontiac Montana and the Buick Terraza which were also competitors in the car market. The Uplander had an automatic transmission of 4 speed. Among the main competitors included the Toyota Sienna. The Sienna also ran on the V6 engine like the Chevy Uplander. The Sienna engine has a higher horsepower of 266 compared to that of the Uplander which is 240 hp. The transmission of these two cars also differs as the Sienna has a transmission of 5 speed while the Chevy Uplander has that of 4 speed. This makes the Sienna more costly but with a presumably better performance.
The Nissan Quest also proves another major competitor of the Uplander in terms of the performance. The Nissan also runs on a V6 engine like the Uplander and with a slightly different horsepower of 235 compared to 240 hp. The Quest however has a 5 speed transmission while the Uplander still possesses the 4 speed transmission of which all are automatic. GM discontinued the Uplander do to soft sales.
