What's New for the 2018 GMC Savana?

In 2018, the GMC Savana comes in three different body styles, which are a cargo van, an extended cargo van, and a passenger van. All three trim levels are roomier, more spacious, and safer than what was offered in the 2017 Savana and earlier models. The 2018 vehicles are also outfitted with a panel of tech features to make driving safer and more enjoyable, including OnStar. The GMC Savana comes with rear-wheel drive, and it is available with four types of engines. The 2018 Savana's list of standard bonuses includes a tire pressure monitoring system, an oil monitoring system, air conditioning, power-operated windows and doors, and a rearview mirror with a backup camera.

There are two speakers located in the front of the vehicle for enhanced surround sound. The seats are made of vinyl with the option to upgrade to cloth, and they offer support and comfort with a headrest and armrests. Air conditioning, a full instrument panel with a fuel gauge, engine and oil temperature, voltmeter, and a trip odometer are other standard components of this cargo van. This model also features an engine cover and a storage bin. The cargo van has multiple cup holders in the front and back and two 12-volt power outlets.

At 244.1 inches, it's 20 inches longer than the regular cab, and it has a higher maximum payload of 3,022 lbs compared to the regular cab's maximum of 3,353 lbs.
