Overview

What's New in the 2015 GMC Savana 3500?

Like other Savana models, changes to the 3500 are minimal for 2015. The biggest upgrade is a newly standard auxiliary port for music, along with a newly optional USB drive for music. The 2015 Savana also comes standard with an OnStar system. 

How Much Does a 2015 GMC Savana 3500 Cost?

The Savana 3500 comes in three trim levels: a base-level Cargo model for hauling large items and LS or LT trims for carrying passengers. All three are offered in short- or long-wheelbase options, with mandatory rear-wheel drive.

Opt for the Savana Cargo ($33,100), and you shouldn't expect many standard features. The van includes only the basics, such as vinyl seating, OnStar, manual air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo (which includes an auxiliary music port in the 2015 model). There's no CD player and no power locks, power windows or power mirrors, but each of those features and more can be added as options.

Choose the Savana LS ($37,200), and you'll get a few more features. First of all, the Savana 3500 passenger van is offered in two wheelbases: Regular models have a 12-person seating capacity, while the extended-length Savana can carry up to 15 people. The Savana LS also includes power door locks and cruise control.

Drivers who opt for the upscale Savana LT ($37,700) get even more standard equipment. Such features include cloth upholstery, a compass, remote keyless entry, rear air conditioning and exterior chrome accents.

Shoppers who want the Savana's diesel engine will pay big money for the privilege. The engine costs around $10,000 extra on all Savana models, meaning you shouldn't choose it unless you plan on hauling and towing extensively.

In addition to the Savana's standard equipment, many options are available. Extras range from items such as power mirrors and windows to high-end features such as a reversing camera, a navigation system and rear park assist.

GMC Savana 3500 Safety

Is the 2015 GMC Savana 3500 a Safe Car?

Standard 4-wheel disc-braking with anti-lock brakes and dynamic rear proportioning can reduce the drama that comes with stopping a loaded truck. Also standard on all Savana vans is StabiliTrak, GM's electronic stability-control program. Available side-curtain airbags and standard lap and shoulder belts for center-seat passengers bolster safety in the event of an accident. Your ability to avoid an accident is enhanced by sweeping visibility in the 3500 passenger van, the newly available backup camera and parking sensors.

The 2015 GMC Savana 3500 is not rated in government crash tests. The Savana's mechanical twin, the Chevrolet Express, received a 3-star rollover rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, though the group didn't rate the van's front- and side-impact protection. The Savana 3500 is also unrated in tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Competition

2015 GMC Savana 3500 vs the competition

Ford Transit -- The all-new Ford Transit offers better gas mileage than the Savana and has improved capabilities. It also offers a more attractive starting price for budget-conscious van shoppers.

GMC Yukon XL -- Yes, the most obvious competitor to the GMC Savana 3500 is in the same showroom. A Yukon XL will seat up to eight, and although it doesn't deliver the sheer cubic volume of the Savana, it tops the van in comfort and over-the-road demeanor.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter -- The Sprinter offers impressive capability and efficiency in a considerably more modern package than the Savana 3500, but it's also more expensive.

RAM ProMaster -- With fuel-efficient V6 engines and a low load floor, RAM's latest take on the full-size van boasts especially extensive capabilities, whether you're hauling people or large items.

Autotrader's Advice

It's hard for us to suggest one van over another because the one that's best for you depends on your needs. Drivers who need to carry a lot of people, for instance, will choose a 15-passenger version, while those interested in a heavy-duty hauler will want the cargo model. Our only advice: Get a few convenience options. You'll thank us when you don't have to get out of the van on a hot day just to adjust the passenger-side mirror. Find a GMC Savana 3500 for sale
