About Chevrolet Astro
The Chevrolet Astro is a van manufactured and marketed by the Chevrolet from 1985 to 2005. It was marketed in multiple configurations, including passenger minivan and cargo van. The Astro was a GM M-body vehicle, using a rear-wheel-drive chassis, and all-wheel-drive became optional in 1990. The first-generation Chevrolet Astro was introduced in 1985 as a vehicle that would "make you realize that life is too big for a minivan". The seating configuration was between two and eight passengers. Engine choices included a 98 hp (73 kW; 99 PS) 2.5 L four-cylinder to a 200 hp (149 kW; 203 PS) 4.3 L V6 depending on different model years. For the second generation, the Chevy was only given the 4.3 L 190 hp V6 engine which could produce 142 kW of power.
For the transmission, throughout the history, 3 types were offered, including 4-speed automatic, 4-speed manual, and 5-speed manual. 1989 was the final available year for the Borg-Warner T-5 manual transmission, which was changed to the 700R4/4l60 automatic transmissions through 1993. In 1990, a new analog dashboard and the hydroboost braking system were added to the update, along with an extended body option. The vehicle was also updated in 1992, 1993, and 1994. In 1995, the second-generation Chevrolet Astro was released as a facelift.
