GMC's full-size van continues for 2008 as the workhorse of the fleet, able to serve as either a commercial hauler, 15-passenger mini-bus or a powerful tow vehicle. It comes in either short- or long-wheelbase lengths and offers a variety of load capacities and engines.
For 2008, a 301-horsepower 5.3-liter V-8 is standard on 1500 Passenger Van models, with a 323-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-8 available optionally. The smaller V-8 is now E85/flex-fuel capable. A four-speed automatic is standard with either engine. While most versions of the GMC are rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive remains an available option.
For 2008, tire pressure monitors have been made standard, and new flat and convex exterior mirrors make for better vision. Curtain airbags are now standard, and tougher glass is fitted on 12- and 15-passenger versions. All center seats get shoulder belts this year as well.
Anti-lock brakes and daytime running lights are standard on the Savana, too.
