When you are in search of a commercial-grade vehicle that can transport up to 15 passengers at once, turn to the GMC Savana Passenger van. The 2017 GMC Savana Passenger vans come available in 12- and 15-passenger variants -- each of which also offer cargo space for transporting guests' belongings. Whether you run a transit business or your organization needs the ability to shuttle large groups around with ease, the GMC passenger vans are up to the task! As the Savana Passenger van is a GMC, drivers and passengers can also expect a high-quality cabin that is a step above other transit van options.
To transport up to 15 passengers, you will need a lot of power under the hood, and that is exactly what the 2017 GMC Savana Passenger vans deliver. GMC's Vortec 4.8-liter V8 is provided as the standard engine in the new Savana Passenger line and generates 285 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. A 6.0-liter V8 is also available, providing 282 horses and 320 lb-ft of torque -- or a slight increase in performance over the base model engine. Upgrade to the Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 and 525 lb-ft of torque, 260 hp and impressive fuel economy figures are all part of the package. With that level of torque and performance, it is no surprise that the 2017 Savana's available Duramax Turbo-Diesel is the most powerful diesel engine in its class. Every 2017 Savana Passenger model comes standard with rear-wheel drive (RWD) and a heavy-duty 6-speed automatic transmission, as does a Tow/Haul mode. Depending on the 2017 Savana model that you choose, maximum trailering capability ranges from 8,100 pounds to 10,000 pounds, which should be plenty for any road trip or excursion.
GMC's new Savana Passenger vans can be had in a range of models or trim levels -- including multiple wheelbase lengths. Most Savana van models feature the standard, regular wheelbase, the 2017 Savana 3500 models are also offered with an extended wheelbase for 15-passenger seating.
