The Chevrolet Venture is a minivan produced by General Motors for the 1997 to 2005 model years. A replacement for the Chevrolet Lumina APV, the Venture was badge engineered as the Pontiac Trans Sport/Montana, the Oldsmobile Silhouette, the Chinese-market Buick GL8, the European (except for the UK) Opel Sintra, and the United Kingdom-market Vauxhall Sintra.
The Venture and its siblings were powered by GM's 3.4 L LA1 V6, rated at 180 hp (134 kW). After 1999, the engine was slightly redesigned to produce an extra 5 hp (4 kW), for a total of 185 hp (138 kW), and the alarm system for seatbelts, door ajar, low fuel, etc. have been changed. All Ventures used a four-speed automatic transmission.
