Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
Changes for 2010 include the addition of E85 compatibility and variable valve timing to the 4.8-liter, 5.3-liter and 6.0-liter V8 engines. Savana 2500 and 3500 models now feature a new six-speed automatic transmission, a revised rear axle ratio and a remote start option on the LT trim.
Changes for 2009 include the addition of an engine oil cooler on the 4.3.-liter V6 and a transmission oil cooler on applications with a 14,000 pound or greater GCWR. A fast idle option is available on 6.0-liter V8 models, making it easier to run accessories while the van is idling.
The GMC Savana is a favorite of small business owners and working people everywhere. No pickup or SUV can match the Savana's cargo hauling capabilities, nor can they be so easily retrofitted to serve specific needs. Be it a rolling carpenter shop or a 15-passenger transport, the Savana serves an important role in an ever more mobile society. GMC, however, can no longer afford to be complacent, now that Dodge has dropped its long-running Ram van and replaced it with a diesel-powered European model known as the Sprinter. An excellent work truck, the Sprinter cannot rival the Savana in the luxury conversion van field, although rival Ford offers a full-size van that can go toe-to-toe with the Savana.
