1995 Chevrolet G30 Review

Heavy duty power, without the heavy duty look.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 1995 Chevrolet G30 is a commercial van with a standard automatic, V-6 engine and was unveiled with a redesigned unibody exterior. The 1995 Chevrolet G30 is also available in a passenger Sportvan model. Along with the base model V-8 engines are available for more powerful ride. There are a few optional features, including extended models, that allow drivers to customize the vehicles for a more comfortable experience.

What's New

The 1995 Chevrolet G30 gets some exterior changes, along with modified engines. The G30 is available in several versions as per the needs of customers. The base model is completely stripped down, with no rear seats and a very utilitarian interior.

The Sportvan G30 gets every feature of a full conversion van with the exception of a fiberglass roof extension and rear seats. This model is basically a completely basic model sent from the factory to get interior and exterior upgrades from third-party companies.


The redesigned exterior of the 1995 Chevrolet G30 is similar to that of the Chevrolet C/K Series pickups of the era. It has a new long nose and a four-headlight design, which is a popular school bus conversion. The van uses a unibody construction with side moldings.


The 1995 Chevrolet G30 has power brakes, power steering, four-wheel Anti-lock Brake Systems, and an AM/FM stereo system. The van comes with vinyl upholstery as standard for its seats and optional features include keyless entry, power windows, power locks, air-conditioning, and chrome bumpers.

Performance & Handling

The standard engine in the 1995 Chevrolet G30 is a 5.0-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 175 horsepower. Optional engines include a 5.7-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 200 horsepower and a 7.4-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 230 horsepower. Only automatic transmission is available with these engines.

Any of the three engines is a good choice, considering that the G30 is a heavy-duty van. The van needs power, which is something that the G-Series’ V-6 engines lack. This makes the availability of V-8 engines for the G30 a good decision.

The base engine offers a good enough performance for the occasional heavy hauls, but a complete G30 workhorse is best fitted with the 5.7-liter V-8 or, better yet, the 7.4-liter V-8. The latter option offers plenty of power, even when the van is filled to the limit with passengers or cargo.


There is no crash test data on the 1995 Chevrolet G30.
