2012 GMC Savana 2500 Extended Cargo Van

2012 GMC Savana Review

(0 Stars)  Room to haul.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The full-size van segment is not one that has seen much innovation in the past several decades, and the GMC Savana is no exception. There is not much to be found in the way of class-leading features or whizbangery here, but then again, there's not much to change: the Savana offers simplicity and competence when hauling is the name of the game. It can be configured to hold up to fifteen passengers, making it an ideal vehicle for transporting a church group or a kids' soccer team, and it offers comfortable leg room even when the number of riders swells into the double digits. Alternatively, the Savana can be had as a cavernous cargo van with up to 284 cubic feet of space behind the front seats and the ability to tow up to 10,000 pounds. The Savana also serves as the perfect chassis on which to build a conversion van. There are few interior amenities, but the Savana comes with a standard AM/FM radio, single-zone air conditioning, and three cupholders. People who buy big vans like this aren't usually that concerned with fuel economy, and that's a good thing, because the Savana isn't particularly fuel efficient, especially with its top-spec V-8 engine. However, the Savana's combination of simplicity and versatility makes it a solid choice for anyone with a lot of people -- or stuff -- to transport.
