GMC Savana Cargo 3500 Van

The GMC Savana 3500 is capable of carrying a hefty load of supplies for anyone from an electrician to a flower shop owner. Its versatility really makes it a great vehicle for anyone looking to regularly haul supplies, but does not want them exposed to the elements, as they would be in a pickup truck. General Motors is the company behind this automobile and actually manufactures a number of other, and very similar, models. For example, the Savana 3500 is also available as a passenger van, which logically means that it more or less contains rear seating. In addition, the Savana Cargo Van is available in two smaller models: the 1500 and the 2500. These types of cargo vans are very popular for commercial fleets of labor type industries. The GMC Savana had to be constructed with the taillights raised higher than normal because in this case if the rear doors are open, or when towing a small trailer, the vehicle's own lights can still be seen. One of the main concerns with purchasing and operating a vehicle of this size is the cost of fuel to maintain it. The good news is that in terms of fuel efficiency, the GMC Savana Cargo 3500 Van really is not bad compared to the surplus of Sport Utility Vehicles on the market today. Drivers should expect to get between 12- 15 mpg. As of 2007, the Savana 3500 van will come with the choice of 5.3 L, 295 hp or 6.0 L, 300 hp V8 engines. A few other changes have occurred over the years, two major changes to be exact since its inception in 1996. In 2003, the Savana 3500 began being offered in all wheel drive and then the 2007 changes as already stated. This is a great vehicle for the purposes listed above and will be very appreciated during those long car rides.
