Could Americas Next Mail Truck be the Chevrolet City Express?

That is the question asked by GMAuthority. From their polled resulted (which you can view in full in the link below, and add your vote), shows the majority are in favor of it, are you?

To start, I am. Considering what this truck has to offer and what would be required of a vehicle to take up this task, the City Express fits the bill.

Quote:
Currently, the United States Postal Service has a fleet of around 200,000 Grumman Long Life Vehicles serving as its mail trucks across the country. Those pokey little vans have been in service for thirty years now, and soon, the government will be taking bids on the vehicle that will be used as America’s next mail-carrying-mobile. A contract that could be worth as much as six billion dollars, according to Automotive News. $6 billion.
There’s a long list of specifications that the next mail truck/van will need to meet. For example, the cargo area must be a certain size, there are efficiency regulations, and numerous other specs that the USPS would prefer their next vehicles to have. The Chevrolet City Express meets pretty much all of them, which is why we’re now asking for your opinion via this Community Question.
Think about it: the Chevrolet City Express has a large cargo space, since it is a work van after all, and it’s brand-new for the 2015 model year, and it’s pretty efficient for a van. The only potential fault that is that the USPS requires their vehicles to be right-hand drive, and the City Express is solely available in left-hand drive, since this is America, after all.
So, what do you think? Should the City Express be ‘Merica’s next mail truck? Vote in the poll below, and let us know your reasoning in the comments section.

Good chance it is. I'm noticing more and more businesses using it's Nissan version, which is already good proof as to how useful it can be for transporting lower quantities of what ever needs to be moved.
