2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.9L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
This '08 van has less features than the 1998 van we traded for it. It's a 1993 Venture with a tarted up body. In 2008, it has no flip and fold seats, no armrests or cupholders for the center row, no separate temp for the back, no storage wells in the floor, and the seats aren't even *easy* to remove. see full Chevrolet Uplander review
