About GMC Savana 3500 Cargo

The 2017 GMC Savana represents the last of a decades’-old van design, one with a proven history of reliability and versatility, but whose time has probably come. The problem isn’t that the Savana cargo and passenger vans can’t haul loads of cargo and people, rather that newer van designs like the Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster and Mercedes-Benz Metris and Sprinter can do it better for about the same price. The Savana’s V8 diesel engine is replaced this year by a smaller, less powerful 4-cylinder version, leaving very little to argue why one would choose this van over its newer, safer and more technologically savvy competitors. Being a known commodity to upfitters might be a good reason, as is the Savana’s 10,000-pound tow rating.
