A Brief History
For twenty years, the Chevrolet Astro was one of the most capable vehicles on the market. Built with the powertrain of a truck but with the utility of a van, the Astro was well rounded to the point of taking on any challenge.
The Astro was offered by Chevrolet, while the Safari was offered by GMC. Both offerings were very similar in style and nearly identical in function. Under the badges, both vans shared the same drivetrain and other options that powered the vehicles. Both variants featured rear wheel drive configurations, but eventually became the first ever minivans to be offered with an all wheel drive configuration.
Given the Astro and Safari were produced for over 20 years, a few generations of the vehicle exist. The first generation took aim at the uninspiring lineup of minivans of the time. With seating for 8 passengers and up to 200 horsepower from a 4.3L V6, the astro was unlike anything else on the market at the time. The first generation of the astro saw classic options like scotchgard on the interior and the removal of freon from the vehicle’s ac system.
With the second generation of the astro, the overall look and design was changed to match GM’s Express vans. Other than that, the design and function of the Astro remained largely unchanged until the last Astro rolled off the assembly line in May 2005. For over twenty years the Astro served as one of the hardest working vehicles on the road, transporting families, contractors, couriers, musicians and more with all their supplies wherever they needed to go.
While production of the Astro ended over 10 years ago, there are still plenty of vehicles on the road due to their incredible construction and longevity.
