GMC Savana Cargo 1500 Van

Professionals looking for a great cargo van need not look any further. General Motors, who is known to produce strong and durable work vehicles, has come forward with the Savana Cargo 1500. The GMC Savana 1500 Cargo Van is fully capable of carrying all one's tools and supplies to and from the job site. The GMC Savana 1500 is also available as an 8-passenger van if that is more appropriate for one's needs. Additionally, the Savana Cargo Vans are available in three distinct sizes, with the 1500 being the smallest. Many people are aware that driving such a large vehicle can be a harrowing experience, but the Savana 1500 handles very well and has adequate lines of sight. Further, the GMC Savana is constructed with the taillights raised higher than normal as this allows for the lights to still be seen even if the rear doors are open, or when towing a small trailer. Another area of concern for professionals who are driving an obscene number of miles daily between job sites is gas mileage. In terms of fuel efficiency, the GMC Savana 1500 is not that bad compared to the array of Sport Utility Vehicles on the market today. It is rated to get about 14 mpg in the city and 18 on the highway which even beats out the Ford Explorer, which is a much smaller vehicle. Also, most will recognize that this vehicle is more fuel-efficient than any other open bed trucks on the market. To ensure that the Savana 1500 Cargo Van stays competitive in the marketplace, GMC is increasing the offerings available. As of 2007, the Savana 1500 Cargo van will come with the choice of 5.3 L, 295 hp or 6.0 L, 300 hp V8 engines. This will of course increase its towing power, which will be very appreciated. A few other changes have occurred over the years, two major changes to be exact since its inception in 1996.
