General Motors has offered the GMC Savana since 1996, and with the exception of a few small revisions implemented for the 2003 model year, the full-size van has soldiered on more or less unchanged in the decades since. Unsurprisingly, the 2024 GMC Savana continues this trend without any significant changes over the preceding model year. Now, interested customers can spec the 2024 GMC Savana as they see fit using the official online configurator at GMC’s website.
As was the case previously, the 2024 GMC Savana is available in a multitude of configurations including Passenger Van configurations, Cargo Van configurations, and Cutaway Van configurations, each of which was designed to fill a certain role. Engine options include 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, as well as the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, which is rated at 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. However, the V8 engine is no longer available in the cargo configuration.
Engine availability depends on the model and configuration selected. Both engines connect to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with the V6 engine connecting to the MTH eight-speed automatic, and the V8 connecting to the N8X heavy duty eight-speed automatic. The GMC Savana was also previously available with a third engine option, specifically the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax engine, however the diesel was dropped from the lineup with the introduction of the 2023 model year, as GM Authority covered previously.
It’s also worth noting that the 2024 GMC Savana is no longer available to order with the updated infotainment system options, including (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- AM / FM stereo with MP3 player and USB port (U0H)
- SiriusXM Radio (U2K)
- Bluetooth for phone (UPF)
- Wi-Fi Hotspot capable (VV4)
As it stands, the only infotainment feature still offered for the 2024 GMC Savana is the AM/FM stereo with MP3 player (RPO code U0F).
