2005 CHEVROLET ASTRO DELIVERS POWER, CAPACITY AND SAFETY

Whether it's active families looking for comfort and value or commercial customers looking for power and capacity, Chevrolet Astro delivers.

Astro delivers standard seating for up to eight, 170 cubic feet (4,825L) of cargo space with the rear seats removed and up to 5,700 pounds (2,586 kg) of towing capacity in the cargo van version.

Safety and security features

Safety is paramount for families and business owners, so Astro delivers an extensive list of safety and security features, including: standard driver and front-passenger air bags, and energy-absorbing foam behind the trim panels, moldings, the headliner and all other vital areas, helping to protect occupants from potential head injuries in the event of an accident.

Other standard Astro safety and security features include a child security latch on the sliding door, battery-rundown protection and PASSLock theft-deterrent system. A lockout provision also prevents the driver's door from locking if the key is inadvertently left in the ignition.A world-class brake system further adds to Astro's solid reputation as a dependable Chevy Truck.

The standard world-class power four-wheel disc, four-wheel ABS brake system, with a highly responsive Hydroboost hydraulic assist power brake booster and GM's Dynamic Rear Proportioning, provides quicker, more controlled stops and additional safety alerts. The reserve power assist system will continue to provide sufficient power assist to stop the van if the engine stalls or is turned off.

For an even higher level of safety and peace of mind, Astro is available in all-wheel-drive configuration. The system operates in rear-wheel drive until it senses rear-wheel slippage, then transfers torque to the front axle to help regain traction.

Practical, affordable

Astro continues to be more affordable for retail and fleet customers alike. Buyers also have flexible ordering options to tailor vehicles to their requirements. All models feature standard 16-inch wheels and tires. Base models have steel wheels. Aluminum wheels are standard on all uplevel LS and LT models. Tires are P215/70R16 all-season steel-belted radials.

Standard Vortec power

Astro is powered by the proven Vortec 4300 4.3L V-6. It features multi-port fuel injection and delivers 190 horsepower (142 kw) and 250 lb.-ft. (339 Nm) of torque. The Vortec 4300 is mated to a Hydra-Matic 4L60-E four-speed automatic overdrive transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) Astro's workhorse capability is evident in its towing capacity: 5,400 pounds (2,449 kg) in passenger vans and 5,700 pounds (2,565 kg) in cargo vans.
