What's New in the 2014 GMC Savana 1500?

The Savana is largely unchanged for the 2014 model year.

Which Savana 1500 is the Best?

We'd equip an 8-passenger 2014 Savana 1500 with available all-wheel drive and just enough comfort and convenience accessories to make it livable for a 3-week grand tour. With room for everything a family of four could possibly carry, along with bike storage inside rather than on top of the van, the Savana would make a great base camp for any weekend -- or weeks-long -- adventure. With the top LT trim, navigation, rear parking sensors and a backup camera, you'd still be out the door for well under $40,000.

How Much Does a 2014 GMC Savana 1500 Cost?

Though the Savana offers a wide range of engine and drivetrain choices, trim levels are relatively simple. Cargo models are offered in one trim, dubbed Work, while Passenger versions offer two choices: a base-level LS model or a higher-level Savana LT.

The Savana Work ($28,000) doesn't offer much. Yes, you'll find an AM/FM stereo, but there's no CD player or auxiliary jack. There are bucket seats, but they're trimmed in vinyl, not cloth. And there are no power windows, power locks, power mirrors or keyless entry. However, nearly all of those upgrades are on the van's options list.

The Savana LS ($32,000) adds a few items. The most important are seats, as it's the base trim level of the passenger-hauling Savana. It also includes power locks, though keyless entry is still relegated to the options list. Also optional is multi-zone air conditioning, though the van keeps front air conditioning as standard equipment.

The Savana LT ($34,000) adds several more convenience features, ranging from keyless entry and cloth seats to rear air conditioning and cruise control.

The Savana offers several options, including high-end features such as a navigation system, a rearview camera and rear parking assistance. All-wheel drive is also offered for drivers in snowy climates.

Is the 2014 GMC Savana 1500 a Safe Car?

Thankfully, GM has given consideration to elements of both active safety (accident avoidance) and passive safety (the ability to survive a crash should one occur). Power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and dynamic rear proportioning can reduce the hassle of piloting and the drama of stopping a loaded truck. Also standard on all GMC Savana models is StabiliTrak, which is GM's electronic stability control. An optional backup camera and rear parking sensors take the guesswork out of low-speed maneuvering. Available head-curtain side airbags and lap and shoulder belts for center-seat passengers (standard) wrap up the Savana's safety menu.

2014 GMC Savana 1500 vs the competition

Chevrolet Express -- The Savana's mechanical twin is like GMC's van in every way. But depending on inventory levels, you might be able to find a better deal on the Express.

Ford E-Series -- Ford's full-size van is a lot like the Savana, offering an aging design, available all-wheel drive and passenger and cargo configurations.

Nissan NV -- Like virtually all full-size vans, the NV comes in many configurations and body styles to give shoppers exactly what they want. There's also a high-roof version, which GMC doesn't offer.

RAM ProMaster -- Chrysler's latest entrant into the full-size van segment offers diesel engines, an enormous cargo area and several configurations and body styles.
