NEW 2022 GMC Savana



If your job requires hauling cargo, towing trailers, or shuttling large groups of people, few vehicles meet those requirements quite like a full-size van such as the 2022 GMC Savana. Available with an interior set up either for cargo or passengers, the Savana is an honest workhorse with few frills. Buyers can choose from a gasoline-powered V-6 or V-8 engine or opt for a diesel four-cylinder. All versions offer plentiful towing and payload capacities and either a standard- or extended-wheelbase body style. The Savana—and it’s twin, the Chevrolet Express—is one of the last old-school full-size vans, built atop a ladder-frame chassis just like a full-size pickup truck, which gives it extra durability. The downside to going with this old-school hauler is that it lacks the contemporary styling, modern technology, and fuel-saving powertrains of its key rivals, the Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster, and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

What’s New for 2022?

GMC has replaced the Savana’s available 6.0-liter V-8 with a new 6.6-liter unit for 2022. The change has increased the Savana’s maximum payload and towing capacities; models with the base V-6 engine also see an increase in their gross combined weight ratings (GCWR) to 15,000 pounds.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

GMC offers the Savana with a wide range of powertrains. Both the passenger and the cargo versions of the van come standard with a 276-hp 4.3-liter V-6, but we recommend the optional 401-hp 6.6-liter V-8. The most expensive and most complex engine available is a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel making 181 horsepower. It’s only a four-cylinder, but it pumps out an impressive 369 lb-ft of torque. Still, vans with the V-8 can pull and haul more weight. While the V-6 and the diesel engines get a more modern eight-speed automatic transmission, the V-8s are still paired with an antiquated but durable six-speed automatic. A 2500 or 3500 standard-wheelbase version of the GMC Savana passenger van offers the highest tow rating when equipped with the 6.6-liter V-8 and the optional trailering equipment package.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Because the GMC Savana is a commercial vehicle, it is not issued fuel-economy ratings or estimates by the Environmental Protection Agency. This is also the case with GMC’s heavy-duty 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Inside, the 2022 GMC Savana is all about function. Its interior offers large, comfortable seats and a basic dashboard design with durable black plastics and ergonomic control placement. The passenger van comes with seating for 12 standard but extended-wheelbase models can transport 15. Base LS models get front and rear air conditioning, power windows, power locks, an AM/FM audio system with MP3, cruise control, and a tilt steering wheel. The upper LT trim level adds a few luxuries such as keyless entry. Cargo versions of the Savana offer as much as 286.6 cubic feet of cargo space; however, unlike high-roof versions of some competitors, tall users cannot stand up inside the Savana comfortably. Cargo vans come raw, with bare cargo areas for easy customization to fit your needs. GMC does offer some shelving and other storage solutions, as well as a sliding side door or two doors that swing out. Unlike modern minivans, all GMC Savanas only have a cargo or loading door on the passenger side.

Infotainment and Connectivity

If you’re expecting the same level of infotainment technology and connectivity as GMC offers in its pickups, you’re going to be disappointed. The 2022 GMC Savana cargo van doesn’t even have a touchscreen in its dashboard, and one isn’t available. A touchscreen with navigation is offered for the passenger van. A 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and Bluetooth are offered on both models, as is the myGMC mobile app, which allows you to lock and unlock your vehicle from your smart phone. The app also allows you to schedule and manage dealer maintenance visits.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have not released crash test data for the GMC Savana. GMC offers a basic list of driver aids on the 2022 model; however, two of them are included only in the more expensive LT trim level: forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning. Side blind-spot monitoring is also available, while a backup camera is standard. Key safety features include:

  •  Available forward-collision warning
  •  Available side blind-spot alert
  •  Available rear parking assist

    • Six months ago we dealt with Auto Lux Sales and Leasing Company. Last time we got Toyota Prius and are very happy with the auto and the leasing requirements. This time, the focus of our attention was Chevrolet cruse. On the right date we came for the auto but on the last moment sales Manager, showed us an incredible option: Chevrolet Trax, at this moment the only car available. And it was just the color we wanted. Eventually we got this automobile. Thank you Auto Lux !!! For $145 per month, without down payment ,for 24 months, automobile in LT package !Roman G
