GMC Savana Cargo 2500 Van

Throughout history, General Motors, under the GMC marquee has produced strong and durable work vehicles for every occasion and every need. The GMC Savana 2500 Cargo Van is just another such model capable of carrying a plethora of tools and supplies for anyone from plumbers to caterers. Consumers may be aware that there is in fact a whole line of Savanas and that the Savana 2500 is the middle of the pack model. On the lower end can be found the 1500, and on the upper end is the 3500. The GMC Savana 2500 is also available as an eleven-passenger van, which is perfect for school outings, church use or summer camps. The only difference between the Cargo and Passenger models are the inclusion or exclusion of rear seating. General Motors took some time in creating the Savana line and even included a safety feature or two. The GMC Savana 2500 Cargo Van is constructed with the taillights raised higher than normal, which allowed the lights to still be seen even if the rear doors are open, or when towing a small trailer. This of course is a nice feature to tell one's insurance company in trying to negotiate a lower rate. In terms of fuel efficiency, the GMC Savana 2500 Cargo Van really is not that bad compared to the overabundance of Sport Utility Vehicles on the market today. The driver should expect to get around 14 mpg, which of course will be lower if towing a heavy load. Additionally, GMC seems to be putting some effort into the Savana line and expanding the offerings, which as history as shown, is a good way to make certain that the model stays competitive in the marketplace. As of 2007, the Savana 2500 Cargo van will come with the choice of 5.3 L, 295 hp or 6.0 L, 300 hp V8 engines giving it a little extra boost to carry all the equipment it might be hauling.
