While the 2015 GMC Savana may look like a throwback to the glory days of 1970s’ custom vans, under the traditional sheet metal is a new chassis based off GM's...
... modern pickup-truck fleet. The stiffer body and improved suspension, steering and engine/transmission options make this full-size van surprisingly comfortable and as easy to drive as any modern full-size
pickup or SUV. The high seating position makes for great forward vision, and the broad side glass gives passenger-van drivers nearly unhampered 360-degree visibility. Cargo vans get big side mirrors to help the driver navigate, as well as available sonar park assist and a rearview camera. As for power, the V8 engines have little trouble pulling the Savana. Also note that the Duramax diesel is designed for heavy-duty hauling, not sipping fuel.
