The Chevrolet Express 2500 is about the same width as the Honda Odyssey. If you go with the Chevrolet Express 2500, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Odyssey.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Express 2500 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda Odyssey.
