This rear-wheel drive passenger van seats eight in three rows, with 204 cubic feet of cargo space in the back, making it a nice option as an airport shuttle. The 2008 GMC Savana LS G1500 is the half-ton base trim, utilitarian in purpose and light on standard features. Its 135-inch wheelbase rides on a front independent and solid live axle rear suspension, using 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires. The 5.3-liter V8 serves up 301-hp and 325 ft-lbs of torque, paired with a 4-speed automatic.
Access to the second and third row bench seats is via a 60/40 split hinged side door. A sliding door can be substituted. Rear doors open out barn-style. Both rear bench seats can be removed for 217 cubic feet of cargo capacity. The vinyl seats can be upgraded to cloth and a leather steering wheel added. Standard features include air conditioning, a radio, a tachometer, and power rack and pinion steering. Three cupholders and two power outlets sit up front. Earning five stars in frontal impact tests, the 2008 Savana LS G1500 features 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front airbags and new side curtain bags for all three rows, traction and stability control, daytime running lights, and halogen lamps. A tire monitor is now standard.
Options add power locks, mirrors, and windows, a CD player or 6-CD changer, rear climate control, heated mirrors with turn signals, chrome bumpers and wheels, temperature gauge, tilt steering, cruise control, steering wheel-mounted controls, and remote entry. Additional trailer wiring is also available, to help the 2008 Savana LS G1500 tow up to 6300 pounds.

Upgrading to the 2008 GMC Savana LT G1500 gets you more power features in this eight-passenger shuttle van. The rear-wheel drive Savana LT G1500 represents the lighter half-ton model with a 135-inch wheelbase. A 5.3-liter V8 delivers 301-hp, matched to a 4-speed automatic. The van features a front independent and solid live axle rear suspension and rides on 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires. A tire monitor is newly standard this year.
Added features to the 2008 Savana LT G1500 include power windows, locks, and mirrors, tilt steering, cruise control, wheel-mounted controls, and remote entry. A trip computer joins the dashboard, along with the standard tachometer, and rear seats get their own climate control. Cloth seats replace the vinyl ones in the LS. Air conditioning, a radio, intermittent wipers, and rack and pinion steering are already standard. Both second and third row benches can be removed for up to 217 cubic feet of space (204 with the seats in). Side access is through a split-hinged side door, while barn doors open onto the cargo area. A sliding side door is available. With optional trailer wiring, the passenger van can tow 6300 pounds.
4-wheel disc and ABS brakes come with electronic brakeforce distribution, and side curtain airbags for all rows join the standard dual front airbags. Traction and stability control help with handling, and daytime running lights and halogen lamps contribute to better visibility. The 2008 Savana LT G1500 earns three to five stars in crash tests. Convenience options add a CD/MP3 player or 6-CD changer and 6-way power front seats. A leather steering wheel dresses up the interior. Heated mirrors with turn signals, chrome wheels, a roof rack, and a temperature gauge are other add-ons.

The 2008 GMC Savana LS G1500 AWD comes with a limited slip center differential and viscous center differential, for better performance in slippery conditions. It is not to be taken off-road, as it lacks low-range gearing and only has 7.4 inches of ground clearance. The 5.3-liter, 301-hp V8 delivers 325 ft-lbs of torque and around 14/18 mpg, but tows only 6100 pounds (due to the extra weight of the 4WD system) with the optional trailer wiring. It is matched to a 4-speed automatic and is available as a flex fuel E85 engine.
Five-star frontal impact and three-star rollover ratings provide an adequate safety record in the 2008 Savana LS G1500 AWD. Side curtain airbags for all three rows join dual front bags this year. Other safety features include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, front and rear stabilizer bars, and traction and stability control. Halogen lamps add extra visibility. A new tire monitor is standard this year, to measure pressure in the 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires. Mirrors with turn signals are available.
Features are limited in this base model passenger van. It seats eight in three rows. The second and third row bench seats can be removed, expanding the 204 cubic foot cargo capacity to 217. The 60/40 split hinged side doors can be replaced with a sliding door. Air conditioning, a radio, power steering, intermittent wipers, front power outlets, and three front cupholders are the bare minimum. The interior has been updated with a new steering wheel and gauges, but still features vinyl seats. Upgraded cloth is optional. Other options include a full power setup, cruise control, remote entry, a CD/MP3 player or CD changer with wheel-mounted controls, a compass and temperature display, and chrome exterior trim.

The heavier one-ton 2008 GMC Savana LS G3500 gets a stronger engine to accommodate its extra weight. The 6.0-liter V8 rates 323-hp and 373 ft-lbs of torque and can tow up to 7700 pounds with the optional trailer wiring. It is matched to a havey-duty version of the 4-speed automatic with overdrive and a tow-haul mode. The 2008 Savana LS G3500 rides on the same front independent and solid live axle rear suspension as the 1500. The 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires get a newly standard tire monitor for 2008.
This rear-wheel drive passenger van can be configured to seat either eight or 12 passengers in three or four rows respectively. All rear row bench seats can be removed to expand cargo capacity from 204 to 217 cubic feet. The fourth row bench also split-folds 50/50. Access is through a 60/40 split-hinged side door, which can be replaced with an optional sliding door. Cargo access is through swing-out barn doors. The 2008 Savana LS G3500 upgrades to cruise control from the LS 1500 trim, but otherwise is sparsely outfitted. Standard features include radio, air conditioning, a tachometer, power rack and pinion steering, and intermittent wipers.
Five-star frontal impact ratings are due to the 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes and dual front airbags with passenger deactivation. Side curtain bags are now standard for the first three rows and should improve side impact tests. Front and rear stabilizer bars, traction and stability control, halogen lamps, and daytime running lights also contribute to the safety performance. Heated mirrors with turn signals can be added, along with full power features, remote entry, and tilt steering. Appearance-wise, a leather steering wheel and chrome exterior trim are also available. Other extras include a compass and temperature gauge, a CD/MP3 player or 6-CD changer, a roof rack, and rear climate control.

With a longer 155-inch wheelbase, the 2008 GMC Savana LS G3500 Extended can seat up to 15 passengers in five rows, though it comes standard with four rows to accommodate 12. The fifth row bench split-folds 50/50, and all rear bench seats can be removed to expand a 236 cubic foot cargo area to 253 cubic feet. The one-ton weight needs a 6.0-liter, 323-hp V8, which is paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission that features overdrivce and a tow/haul mode. Trailer wiring is optional, enabling this rear-wheel drive passenger van to tow 7400 pounds.
Traction and stability control are standard safety features, which also include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, a new tire monitor, and dual front and side curtain airbags for the first three rows. Halogen lamps and daytime running lights are also part of the package, and folding mirrors with integrated turn signals are optional. The 2008 Savana LS G3500 Extended is minimally equipped with cruise control, tilt steering, front and rear climate control, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, a radio, and three front cupholders. There are also two front power outlets. Side access is through a 60/40 hinged door, with the option to add a sliding door.
Available options boost comfort and convenience by adding full power features, remote entry, heated mirrors, 6-way power front seats, leather steering wheel trim, and a choice of CD player or 6-CD changer. Chrome exterior trim, a roof rack, and interior cloth seats (to replace the vinyl) are also available.

The LT upgrades from the LS by coming standard with power windows, locks, and mirrors, remote entry, a compass, and a tilt steering wheel with controls. Also included is front and rear climate control and cloth seats. The van seats up to 12 people in four rows of seats (or optional eight in three rows), with all rear bench seats removable. The fourth row split-folds. With the seats out, the 2008 Savana LT G3500 holds 217 cubic feet of cargo and 204 with the seats up.
To power the heavier 3500, a 6.0-liter, 323-hp V8 sits under the hood. It comes with a 4-speed automatic with overdrive and rates 373 ft-lbs of torque at 4400 RPM. Fuel economy averages 14/19 mpg. 16-inch wheels with all-season tires support the front independent and solid live axle rear suspension. The 2008 Savana LT G3500 earns five stars in frontal impact tests, thanks to standard 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front and new side curtain airbags for all three rows, side impact beams, and traction and stability control. Lighting features include halogen lamps and daytime running lights. Folding mirrors with turn signals can be added.
Aside from the added features that come with the LT, this trim also offers cruise control, a radio, intermittent wipers, three cupholders, and two front power outlets. The three-door van includes a hinged side door to reach the rear seats and barn-like rear doors that open onto the cargo space. A sliding side door is available. Other options for the 2008 Savana LT G3500 include 6-way power front seats, a CD/MP3 player or 6-CD changer, a leather steering wheel, a temperature gauge, and chrome trim. Adding trailer wiring helps the van tow 7700 pounds.

More road grip in wet or snowy conditions adds driving confidence in the 2008 GMC Savana LT G1500 AWD. The automatic all-wheel drive system is accompanied by a viscous and limited slip center differential, and the 301-hp, 5.3-liter V8 gets 325 ft-lbs of torque at 4500 RPM. The 4-speed automatic is equipped with overdrive. There is no low-range gearing in the AWD system, so this passenger van should stay on pavement. The AWD system reduces towing capacity to 6100 pounds.
Riding on the Regular 135-inch wheelbase, the 2008 Savana LT G1500 AWD seats eight people in three rows. Both rear rows are removable, and the 204 cubic foot storage area expands to 217 with the seats gone. An optional roof rack and trailer wiring add more cargo versatility. The LT G1500 adds full power features, including remote entry to the standard package. Other upgrades include cruise control, front and rear climate control, tilt steering, a trip computer, and cloth upholstery. These join intermittent wipers, a radio, rack and pinion power steering, and two front power outlets. There are three cupholders, but only up front.
A tire monitor joins the list of safety features this year, which includes 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, and dual front and side curtain airbags for every row. Traction and stability control, halogen lamps, and daytime running lights are also standard, and you can pay extra for mirrors with turn signals. Other add-ons include heated mirrors, a leather steering wheel, 6-way power front seats, a CD/MP3 player or CD changer, chrome wheels, and a temperature gauge and compass. A sliding side door is available to replace the 60/40 hinged one.

While the Regular LT G3500 rides on a 135-inch wheelbase, the 2008 GMC Savana LT G3500 Extended adds 20 inches to accommodate up to five rows of seats. It comes standard with four rows for 12 people, but fits 15 people with the extra rear bench. This bench split-folds 50/50 and all rear rows are removable. The extra length cuts down on towing capacity, from 7700 to 7400, but the rear-wheel drive van still comes with a 6.0-liter, 323-hp V8. The 4-speed automatic features overdrive and a tow/haul mode. The Extended version holds up to 253 cubic feet of cargo, and a roof rack is a dealer option.
Like the LT G1500, the 3500 boosts interior comfort with full power features, wheel-mounted cruise control, remote entry, a trip computer, cloth seats, chrome bumpers, a compass, and front and rear climate control. Already part of the package is a radio, intermittent wipers, two front power outlets, tilt steering, and 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires. There are some optional upgrades that add 6-way power front seats, a leather steering wheel, and a choice of a single CD/MP3 player or in-dash 6-CD changer. A sliding side passenger door can replace the 60/40 split-hinged door.
Safety features help earn five stars in frontal impact tests, but only manage three stars in rollover tests, despite front and rear stabilizer bars. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front and side curtain airbags for three rows, passenger airbag deactivation, side impact beams, traction and stability control, a tire monitor, and halogen lamps are all standard. Mirrors with turn signals are optional.
