2023 GMC Savana Gets Substantial Price Increase Over 2022 Model35
The 2023 GMC Savana is the 20th model year for the workhorse van, introducing only minor changes and updates compared to the preceding model year. That said, the 2023 GMC Savana also introduces a substantial price increase over the 2022 model year.
As it stands, the 2023 GMC Savana is $5,200 more expensive than the 2022 GMC Savana. This price hike is applied across the board in terms of body configuration and powertrain, and includes a $100 increase to the destination freight charge (DFC), which is now up to $1,795 from $1,695.
With all that in mind, the least-expensive 2023 GMC Savana on offer, specifically the Work Van trim level in the Cargo 2500 Regular Wheelbase configuration powered by the naturally aspirated 4.3L V6 LV1 gasoline engine, is priced at $39,895. The most-expensive 2023 GMC Savana on offer, specifically the LT trim level in the Passenger 3500 Extended Wheelbase configuration powered by the 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, is priced at $49,490.

They still need to recover their engineering costs after all these years and people think it is so easy to make money off vehicles.
The engineering costs for this were recovered, and the tooling equipment fully depreciated years ago. Every one of these units represents huge profits for GM. The price increase just makes it that much more of a cash cow for them.
And people take me seriously? LOL
They may still be depreciating the replacement stamping dies, they don’t last this long typically, seriously
Nothing like a price hike to manage (dwindling) demand. Really not very much distance between the cheapest and most expensive models.
weird flex on the engine choices too. considering the Colorado is going to a 4 cylinder turbo and the base motor in a silvie is also a 4 cylinder turbos, it make no sense to carry on with the 4.3 V6. either go turbo or just use a 5.3. jumping all the way to a 6.6 is nice considering how cheap the difference is, but honestly it makes no sense. dropping the Light duty diesel is also a complete fail, they could have at least tried the Silverado oil belt unit.
The 2.8 engine came from their Opel division (I might be wrong). But since Opel got bought out….the engine went away too
the 2.8 was from the Colorado, made in Taiwan – which is no longer producing that engine
Any info on the 22′ pricing so it can be compared to the 23′?
It’s as if GM is raisins it’s prices on its trucks , SUVs and now vans to subsidize its new junk EV’s
Obviously, GM wants to kill off this van, like they did with the car line, specifically Chevy Sonic. Don’t advertise, make it uncompetitive in price, and there you go, no more van, and hello Brightdrop, which costs even more and has minimal range.
the van is made in the same plant as the Colorado, price hike is probably a profitable way to make more availability to make more trucks
Why? The thing is a dinosaur, with little or no changes. It doesn’t magically cost an additional $5200 to manufacture.
Why not,In my area used ones are selling for ridiculous prices even compared to the other vehicles at ridiculous prices.
My 2012 half-ton, AWD, perfect 5.3 V8 Chevy Express is just gonna have to last me. I love that baby. Now where did I put the car wax?
well it does if every supplier raises it’s costs to keep employees and cover fuel surcharges and covid excuse material costs. the laws of supply and demand also affect this as they can sell them for more, so why not. Not happy about it, but that is what happens when the gov hands out free money to buy votes and allow people to stay home rather than earn a living.
Don’t worry. Another year or two of Bidenomics and they will be putting $7500 or more on the hood just to move em.
Great way to fund those all important lectrics, make an unwanted model uncompetitive in price to soften the blow when the lectrics do come and to fill Queen B’s coffers. It’s so obvious the kind of vehicles they want to build and that often isn’t aligning with what the public wants.
And it’s getting more and more funding EVs nobody but large corporations will be able to afford.
Surprised that they a still keeping the 4.3 V6 in these since they discontinued it in the pickups
It’s a way to even more profits.
not so sure, the colorado is 4 cylinder turbo only now, the svana is built on the same assembly line. it would make sense from a commodities of scale POV to drop the 4.3 and use the silverado/colorado 4 pot turbo as base.
Not really since it inconveniences them designing new wiring harnesses and they still need to produce the 4.3 for warranty and replacement sales.
after waiting a year and a half and my chev dealer can’t even get an allotment for a van, then… the insulting price increase…. after driving GM vans for 50 years, I am done …. GM does not want my business– guess I should never have sold my 1996 Express Conversion van – stupid me
I bet the folding back seat brings back sweet memories.
That is a dealer problem if they don’t have an allotment, go to a different dealer. Incase you haven’t seen the state of the economy (especially the auto industry) , this isn’t GM’s fault, your dealer should have been more forth coming. Did it take your dealer a year and a half to tell you they can’t get it?
This sounds like a troll post, they all start out with the same “I have driven “insert brand here” XX years and now I can’t get this or have a problem with the “insert part or vehicle here” and will take my business to a competing brand. I bet dollars to doughnuts you already drive and own said brands and just hate GM because they are the competition…
I am not a troll! I have purchase and owned new GM vans since 1972!
I’ve gone to several dealers and they are all the same. GM build site claims various dealers have vans in inventory or in transit, but when I contact them, they are all sold months in advance. that is bait and switch.
My local dealer was forthcoming! Told me 6 months at first, then a year…and I would get the 4th allotment when they get it. 18 months ago Chev offered a $3000 allowance …. for vans they were not even building or in any inventory. THAT is NOT forthcoming! Games I no longer will tolerate
The price increase is GM manipulating supply to maximize profit. Their prerogative, but they end up losing loyal customers like me. Supply and Demand… when price goes up, demand goes down.
I was just informed the Traverse I ordered 10 weeks ago is about to go into production. Most likely, the last GM vehicle I will buy.
I agree you definitely sound like a troll. A name like Commonsense is without a doubt a troll name.
I’m surprised it’s not Pennywise.
Pure greed. They plan to force ev’s on as many people as possible. Doesn’t matter how green we go. China is bringing a new coal powered plant on line weekly. India, Russia and others not on board either.
Fleet buyers love these things because they are durable, have excellent resale value and have parts and service procedures that all of their mechanics are familiar with. Also commercial customers negotiate large volume discounts and rarely pay these prices.
Time to switch to ford and dodge
can’t, both are sold out for the next year
That sounds a bit too much and a RIP off. Puts it in the same range of a DODGE RAM van that has been updated in this new design for many years and nearly all the bugs worked out. Though, I don’t want a RAM van this brings it up much into consideration.
This is price the same as the Dodge RAM Pro van, now. And that has been updated and marketed years ago so it might be worth the extra. The GMC has not been update but proved for even longer but it is not UPDATED so it cannot be worth the same price.
