2011 GMC Savana 2500 Overview
The 2011 GMC Savana 2500 is the middle child in GMC’s line of versatile cargo/passenger vans, sliding in above the diminutive 1500 and below the grand-daddy 3500.
Under the hood, there are two engine choices available to power the Savana 2500. The first is a 280-horsepower, 4.8-liter V-8 that is Flex Fuel/E85 capable and second is a 260-horsepower, 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V-8. Both engines come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, and the Savana 2500 only comes with rear-wheel drive.
Opting for the cargo version of the 2011 Savana 2500 gives you a choice between a regular or extended wheelbase model which comes with only two seats up front and plenty of storage in the back. Regular models feature 270.4 cubic feet of cargo room to be filled, while extended versions up that number to 313.9 cubic feet, over 40 cubic feet more. Cargo editions also get their choice of the two engines.
Passenger versions of the Savana 2500 can seat up to 12 passengers and come in either LS or LT trims with the Flex Fuel V-8 as the only engine option.
Air conditioning comes standard, while power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, and power seats are available as options.
Safety features include all-disc antilock brakes, front airbags, and electronic stability control. Passenger versions add standard side curtain airbags and three-layer glass windows that help to reduce the risk of an ejection if a collision occurs.
