For Sale: 2001 Chevrolet Astro in Milford, Michigan

Vehicle Description

2001 Chevrolet Astro Van AWD, Low Miles, Well Optioned, 8 Passenger, Very Clean!
Back in 1985 Chevrolet released an entirely new vehicle platform that was initially designed to compete with the 1984 release of the Plymouth Voyager mini-van. The new "Astro" van was a completely new concept that combined both the new "mini-van" segment, with the then dwindling station-wagon market, offering a vehicle that is easy to load, had tons of interior space, and was much easier to drive compared to the long, gas guzzling, full size wagons.
This 2001 model year Astro van is a great example of why these vehicles were so popular from the mid- '80's until 2005, when Chevrolet finally ended production. With seating for 8 people, the front captain's seats are plush and comfortable with 6-way power driver's seat, the rear 2 rows are bench style seating with matching plush fabric so all 8 passengers ride in total comfort. The seats along with the rest of the interior, are in excellent condition showing minimal signs of wear. The dash, center console, side panels, and headliner are all in like new condition - the gauge panel lens is clear making it easy to read the odometer showing only 43,923 miles since new. This Astro comes well equipped with many options including: power steering, power disc brakes, cruise control, tilt steering, power driver's seat, deep tinted glass, power mirrors, overhead console, keyless entry, front and rear A/C and heat, AM/FM stereo with cassette and CD player, and the very popular rear Dutch-doors with rear window defogger.
The Astro van converts from a passenger vehicle to a utility van quickly and easily by removing the rear bench seats. With the seats removed, there is room for full 4'x 8' sheets of plywood while still having room to close the rear doors. Payload weight is a very capable 1667 lbs so you can add a stack of drywall on top of the plywood with no issues. Towing capacity is an impressive 4700 lbs, great for towing that utility trailer or boat to the local boat launch across town, and with this beautiful Astro van - you are towing in style!
Under the hood is the ultra-dependable 4.3L Chevy V6 engine factory rated at 190 horsepower with 250 ft lbs of torque, providing plenty of power for towing those heavier loads. Shifting duties are handled by a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and "Tow/Haul" mode that, when activated, changes the shift pattern to extend shift points for improved towing capabilities. Distributing the power is a center mounted transfer case driving both front and rear wheels - a true "All Wheel Drive" system making wet roads and especially snowy roads, easier to travel.
The AWD Astro van is still a very sought-after utility vehicle thanks to its proven track record for being very reliable and very capable of so many things - especially its capabilities to seat up to 8 passengers with luggage and travel anywhere in comfort, as well as the ability to act as a utility van by simply removing the rear bench seats. There are still many Astro vans on the road today - a testament to their popularity and reliability. It is not uncommon to find these with over 300,000 miles on the odometer and still on the road today.
It is very rare to find one of these vans in this incredible condition with less than 44K original miles! Do not miss out on this opportunity to own one of Chevrolet's most popular family vehicles of the '90's, considered the "middle-van" because of its larger size in relation to the smaller mini-van market. Sold with the original window sticker along with original sales invoice and a clean Carfax.
