The 2023 GMC Savana is set to begin rolling off the assembly line at the GM Wentzville plant on August 15th, 2022. It’s currently not clear when production of the current 2022 model year GM Savana, as well as the closely related 2022 Chevy Express, will wind down at the facility. It’s worth noting that while production of the GMC Savana Cargo, Passenger and Cutaway models takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, the Savana Cutaway model is produced by Navistar at a separate facility in Springfield, Ohio.
The 2022 GMC Savana is available with three engine different options, including the naturally aspirated 4.3L V6 LV1 gasoline engine, rated at 276 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 298 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm, the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, rated at 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, and the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine, rated at 181 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 369 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm.
Just as in the Chevy Express, the 4.3L V6 gasoline engine and 2.8L I4 diesel engine both route power through the GM eight-speed automatic transmission in the GMC Savana, while the 6.6L V8 gasoline engine connects to the GM six-speed heavy-duty automatic transmission. The utility vans ride on the GMT 610 platform.
Major changes and updates are not expected to be applied to the GMC Savana for the 2023 model year. It’s possible the van will receive a small price increase, however, as GM just recently made the 2022 model-year Savana $400 more expensive across the board amid mounting parts and logistics costs.
