2021 GMC Savana
The 2021 GMC Savana represents the 18th model year of the nameplate. For 2021, the Savana receives several noteworthy changes and updates, highlighted by an all-new V8 gasoline engine.
Changes, Updates, New Features
- Introduction of 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine to replace the outgoing 6.0L V8 L96 Vortec engine. The new, direct-injected engine is SAE rated at 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque for the Savana, which is 17 percent more horsepower and 24 percent more peak torque than the 6.0L it replaces.
We will list other updates/changes for the 2021 Savana shortly.
The 2021 GMC Savana will continue to be offered in three different body styles, including:

The 2021 GMC Savana follows the regular GM model year rollover sequence and will launch in the third quarter of the 2020 calendar year in North America.
It is currently unclear when or if a next-generation GMC Savana will reach the market, though we know that the current model will continue to be sold through the 2023 calendar year. We expect the GMC Savana to continue receiving minor changes, updates, and improvements during that timeframe. An all-new replacement could arrive thereafter, potentially as an electric van.
