The GMC Savana is a commercial vehicle and has not been crash-tested by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Savana Cargo and Passenger Vans are offered with some advanced safety gear. All vans come standard with driver, passenger and side-impact airbags, ABS, and stability control. On passenger models, the LT has the most safety equipment and comes standard with lane departure warning and forward collision warning. Side blind-zone alert is an option. Cargo vans only come in one trim level, so they offer all this tech as stand-alone options.
2022 GMC Savana 2500 vs the competition
2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: The Sprinter is, in many ways, the commercial van gold standard. It’s offered in configurations that will support payloads of over 3 tons, offers 4WD as an option, and carries the excellent build quality and safety reputation of Mercedes-Benz.
2021 Ford Transit: The Transit is the do-it-all van, so it’s no surprise why it outsells the competition. Under the hood, the Transit can be optioned with a potent EcoBoost engine with over 400 lb-ft of torque. And it’s paired to a 10-speed transmission. All-wheel drive is on the options list, too. Next year Ford will debut the E-Transit -- a fully electric van.
2021 Nissan NV: The NV is based upon the Nissan Titan truck platform, so it’s sturdy. The standard V8 engine is very strong. too. However, like the Savanna, its ride and handling balance is less refined than some. However, unlike GMC, Nissan does offer a tall-roof version so it aligns better with the Ford, Mercedes and Ram competition. Know, however, that the NV is being discontinued after this year.
Used Ram ProMaster: The ProMaster is unique among these heavy-duty full-size vans because it’s front-wheel drive. That allows the Ram to offer a lower and flatter floor. That’s a big benefit for loading heavy cargo. Second-hand ProMasters should be easy to find, considering they’ve been on sale here relatively unchanged since 2013.
