CHEVY VENTURE EXPANDS ITS LINEUP WITH A NEW VALUE VAN AND WARNER BROS. EDITION FOR 2000
DETROIT — Venture continues to be the minivan for active families in the year 2000, offering a new Warner Bros. Edition, Value Van model and new radios. One of the more colorful additions in the history of Chevy Trucks is the new Warner Bros. Edition. Available as an Extended Wheelbase Four-Door model, this fun, attractive package is designed wîth the active family in mind, and combines the strengths of Chevy Venture's family transportation wîth the power of Warner Bros. Family Entertainment. Únique features include an overhead flip-down LCD video monitor, a console-mounted stereo video cassette player wîth remote, and lightweight flip and fold modular bucket seats for the second and third rows. But that's not all. A tri-mode audio system allows for three audio sources at once and adds two headphone jacks for the third row.
This exciting model also includes exclusive leather seating surfaces wîth cloth inserts for a comfortable driving experience. The Warner Bros. Edition exterior features color-keyed body-side moldings, fascias and door handles. Complementing the exterior is chrome Venture and Warner Bros. Family Entertainment badging.
'We're excited about the new Warner Bros. Edition Van,' said Venture Brand Manager Dan Keller. 'It's a fun, comprehensive entertainment package for the whole family, wrapped in Venture comfort and durability.'
Returning to the Concept:Cure effort for a second consecutive year, Nicholas Graham for Joe Boxer transformed a Chevy Venture minivan into the ultimate New York taxi complete wîth lickey face seats, an entertainment center, joke box on the dashboard and handy compartments for a week's supply of Joe Boxer underwear. The signature Joe Boxer colors of bright yellow, black and white adorn the vehicle, inside and outside.
The Chevy Venture Minivan and Joe Boxer fashions have a lot in common. 'The Venture minivan is for active families who need to get more done and have more fun,' said brand manager Dan Keller. Nick Graham's Joe Boxer collection is a great fit. It's fun, functional and includes everything from sleepwear to now even a home collection in whimsical prints for the entire family. Nick Graham, like Chevy Venture, believes in innovation and developing new product ideas.
New Venture radios have a redesigned faceplate wîth unique buttons, graphics and colors. Úplevel Venture model radios feature new Radio Data System (RDS) technology as standard. RDS permits traffic and weather bulletins to interrupt radio, cassette and compact disc programming so important information can be heard.
The new Venture Value Van comes pre-packaged wîth a long list of standard features at significant cost-savings. Key features include: seven-passenger bench seating, integrated rear-seat heat ducts, air conditioning, a Tilt-Wheel™ §teering column and an AM/FM stereo.
New Smokey Carmel Metallic paint brings Venture exterior color choices (depending on model) to nine.
Venture continues to offer valuable safety features, such as driver and front-passenger air bags* and side-impact air bags† for the driver and front-passenger. Also included are child security rear door locks, available child safety seats, Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) wîth Automatic Exterior Lamp Control and standard 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) for added driver control during hard braking.
A variety of available seating configurations can adapt to an owner's individual needs, offering up to 200 different configurations. Depending on model, seating ranges from second- and third-row bench seats to lightweight modular bucket seats at all rear positions.
'Venture is a true family van because of its versatility and seating flexibility that can be altered to varying numbers of passengers or to accommodate cargo,' says Venture Brand Manager Dan Keller. 'When you combine those qualities wîth its reliability, comfort and safety features, you've got an outstanding minivan.'
Commercial van buyers will appreciate the Venture Cargo Minivan. This hardworking Extended Wheelbase (120-inch) model includes such standard features as front air conditioning and driver and front-passenger high-back bucket seats. The cargo area is protected from wear and tear by a full-length rubber floor mat, while a particle and odor filter help keep the interior fresh.
Clearly, Chevy Venture is a flexible, hard-working minivan that offers what today's active families need, from the day-to-day commute to long-distance traveling. With a choice of wheelbases, interior configurations and trim levels, as well as passenger or cargo models, Venture remains a leader in the highly competitive minivan market.Source - GM Corporation
