Car video reviews:

Body style: Van
Segment: Large MPV

The Savana 2500 was the classic utility van that proved to be successful as an MPV as well.

With room for up to 12 passengers, it was also used as a fleet vehicle, shuttle, or small bus.

The car's origin dated back in 1976 and the basic vehicle remained the same. It was built on a ladder-chassis, with a solid axle in the back and independent front suspension. It was available with 2- or 4-wheel-drive.

The 2013 Savana 2500 was available with a slightly redesigned front fascia. The big headlights were positioned high so they were protected in the event of a minor parking crashes. A big, sliding, door was available on the right side, to ease the access inside the vehicle. Twin-doors on hinges were placed in the rear.

Inside, the Savana 2500 offered room for 12 passengers as standard, with two trim levels: LS and LT. For the front passengers, the former three passengers bench-seat was deleted and only the two individual seats were offered. The classic dashboard was big, high, and flat as in most of the utility vans. But when compared to that, the passenger version had new amenities on it. From the multiple-zone climate control system to the new audio system which includes CD/MP3, a USB port, and SiriusXM satellite radio. For the utility van, the 2500 offered 1300 lbs of GVWR over the light-duty 1500.
