Edmunds Expert Review of the 2015 GMC Savana Cargo

Edmunds had a chance to get behind the wheel of a 2015 Savana. Summed up below is what they had to say about it. For the full review, go here: http://www.edmunds.com/gmc/savana-ca...id=reviews-tab

Pros

Robust V8 engines all around; hefty towing capacity.

Cons

Less interior space than newer competitors; no tall-roof option; low-grade cabin plastics.

What's New for 2015

The light-duty 1500 series version of the GMC Savana is dropped for 2015, leaving the remaining Savana lineup available only in 2500 and 3500 rear-wheel-drive configurations. The base V6 and 5.3-liter V8 engines also are gone, as is the availability of a second rear door on the driver side, as GMC streamlines the Savana model range. A couple of new digital radio choices are available, and a 120-volt power outlet is now standard.

it sucks it took them this long to make a 120-volt power outlet standards
should have been that way from the start.

Better late than never but you have to consider they have good reasons for doing the things they do, but they can also completely miss out on what to us is obvious.

I can understand why they don't have the tall roof option. A taller body has a higher chance of rolling over.

that and I don't think at this point they're willing to make any drastic changes to the Savana, it's an old product that many are saying is due for a refresh or the chopping block. plus its still selling well as it is, no need to change a thing, just small adjustments till its time to call quits.

Pretty much.. just let it serve out its time until they're ready to cut it off and bring in a new generation.

Don't fix it if it ain't broke right ?

It's not even that, it comes down to the money aspect. if it came down to fixing or changing things and that was the only reason they would have long done it. But these little changes are a low financial risk to stimulate sales. Throwing additional millions at a 10+ year platform is not the answer...

A power outlet and a few different radio choices do seem like low financial risk changes indeed.. Radio choices is something that'll be shared among other vehicles on the line-up as well so there's not really anything involved there.

It IS low financial risk, simple math.

Whats going to be interesting is what they add to it the longer it's on the market and with what other models those parts are common with since they almost have no choice but to play that game.
