2001 GMC Savana

Other than some minor tweaks to the transmission and door locks, not much changed for the GMC Savana passenger van in 2001.  The Savana offers 2 different powertrains: a 4.3 L, 200 hp V6 model and a 5.7 L, 255 hp V8.  In addition, this van has 3 doors and comes in 5 trims: the G1500, G2500, G2500 Extended, G3500, and G3500 Extended.

Gas mileage typically amounts to 13 mpg in the city and 18 on the highway, which some may consider a bit thirsty.  Seating capacity allows for 8, 12, or 15 depending on the trim.  All trims have standard air conditioning and ABS brakes, along with optional cd player, power windows, power door locks, and power seats.  Max towing capacity can go anywhere from 6600 to 10000 lbs.  The Savana uses rear wheel drive to power the vehicle.

Overall, drivers like the engines and roomy interior.  However, they wouldn't mind improved steering and hipper styling.  Most experts would recommend the 2001 Savana for anyone looking for a long van that won't get mistaken for the Shaggin Wagon.  For more modern features and stronger powertrains, look for something from 2003 or later.
