The 2012 GMC Savana Cargo Van, like its previous year models, is the go-to van for just about any business need. This is because of its robust engine, multiple wheelbase and passenger seating options, as well as its impressive load pulling capacity. It is a model that has remained mostly unchanged for several years due to an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” ethos. This makes the Savana one of the most reliable and solid vans on the market.
It is an adaptable model that offers six different engine options: a V6 and five V8 models. The standard 4.3-liter V6 comes with the rear-wheel drive 1500 and produces 195 horsepower and 260 ft-lbs of torque. A 5.3-liter V8 comes in all-wheel drive 1500 models, producing 310 hp and 334 ft-lbs of torque. Rear-wheel drive 2500 and 3500 trims come with a 4.8-liter V8, which produces 280 hp and 296 ft-lbs of torque. The remaining engines come as options including two 6.0-liter V8s: one gasoline powered, while the other runs on compressed natural gas. Finally, a 6.6-liter highly economic V8 diesel engine is an option with 260 hp and 545 ft-lbs of torque.
The 2012 GMC Savana Cargo is a no-nonsense kind of vehicle, it’s dependable and does just what you need it to do without being overly fancy. Fitted with any of the V8 engines, it has enough power to perform any load carrying or pulling task asked of it. There may be more high tech alternatives on the road today, but nothing can beat the dependability of a tried and tested design when it comes to the vital everyday needs of a business.
