2017 GMC Savana 3500

What We Like

Relatively huge towing capability; can accomodate up to 15 passengers on extended-wheelbase chassis

What We Don't

Hasn't been completely redesigned since the 1990s; low roof with no higher option; poor fuel economy; sloppy driving dynamics


Consumer Rating

4.3/ 5


What's New in the 2017 GMC Savana 3500?

The Savana's optional diesel engine now has half as many cylinders. Its 4-cylinder turbodiesel is meant for improved fuel economy rather than enhanced hauling-friendly torque. See the 2017 GMC Savana 3500 models for sale near you

Which Savana 3500 is the Best?

Given the Savana 3500's age compared to its rivals, we'd shop the competition. But if we had to pick a Savana, we'd get a fairly basic cargo or LS model with virtually no options. After all, the Savana's primary virtue compared to rivals is its relatively low pricing. Find a GMC Savana 3500 for sale


How Much Does a 2017 GMC Savana 3500 Cost?

The 2017 GMC 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 forms with mandatory rear-wheel drive.

Opt for the Savana Cargo ($34,900) and you shouldn't expect many standard features. The van includes only the basics, such as vinyl seating, manual air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary audio port. There's no CD player and no power locks, power windows or power mirrors.

Choose the Savana LS ($38,200) and you get a few more features. The most important one is seats: 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, cruise control, rear air conditioning and GM's OnStar system with built-in Wi-Fi.

Drivers who opt for the upscale Savana LT ($38,500) get cloth upholstery, a compass, remote keyless entry and exterior chrome accents.

In addition to the Savana's standard equipment, many options are available. Extras range from items like power mirrors and windows to high-end features like a reversing camera, a newly updated version of GMC's IntelliLink infotainment system and rear park assist.

2017 GMC Savana 3500 vs the competition

2017 Ford Transit -- Ford's new full-size van is offered in cargo and passenger configurations. Unlike the Savana, it boasts several fuel-efficient engine choices, modern driving dynamics, tall roof heights and high-tech optional extras.

2017 RAM ProMaster -- RAM's latest take on the full-size van offers huge capability, whether you're hauling people or large items. With diesel engines and European design, fuel economy is also much better than the Savana's figures.

2017 Nissan NV -- Most like the Savana in purpose, the truck-based NV offers better driving dynamics, more body style choices and a more modern design.

Used Mercedes-Benz Sprinter -- The Sprinter offers impressive capability and efficiency in a considerably more modern package than does the Savana 2500, but it's also more expensive. You can consider a used model, keeping in mind that it was also sold as the Freightliner Sprinter.
