Despite turning out ever more versatile vehicles, the auto industry has yet to find a replacement for the full-size, truck-based van. Although it’s based on a decades-old design, the GMC Savana 3500 shows no signs of losing its apparently interminable appeal.

What's New for 2014

The Savana line carries into 2014 unchanged.

Choosing Your GMC Savana 3500

The brawniest member of the Savana family, the 3500 can seat up to 12 passengers and tow 9,900 pounds. If that’s not enough, you can opt for the long-wheelbase model that seats 15. It’s hard to overstate just how customizable the Savana is. Like in the old days, standard equipment is sparse and the option list is almost as long as the van itself. You can order up a bare-bones cargo mover, a plush vacation cruiser, and everything in-between.

The Savana line is divided into two basic models: Cargo and Passenger

Cargo

Work Van

Designed strictly for work, the base cargo model has two front seats (vinyl or cloth) and an unfinished, windowless box. Even so, you do get air conditioning, power windows and locks, and a basic audio system. Two V8 engines are offered: a 4.8-liter with 285 horsepower and a 324-horsepower 6-liter. Both are paired with a heavy-duty six-speed automatic.

Diesel Work Van

Opting for a 6.6-liter diesel engine sends the base price from $33,530 to $45,475—a substantial jump when specification is otherwise similar.

Passenger

The civilian Savana 3500 makes room for 12 passengers—or 15 in long-wheelbase form. The 6-liter V8 comes standard, and you can upgrade to a 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 with 260 horsepower and 525 pound-feet of torque. The passenger van comes in two trim levels:

1LT

Adds chrome exterior trim, premium cloth upholstery, full carpeting, rear air conditioning and cruise control. Opt for the 6.6-liter diesel engine with the 2LT.

Among the multitude of options are power front seats, a sliding side door, navigation, an upgraded sound system, a review camera and rear parking sensors. You can pick and choose as you like as everything is offered on a standalone basis.
