Buy Used GMC Van Models

The USA will always have need for cargo and passenger haulers, and most automakers are happy to cash in on this demand. GMC vans are presented in a variety of configurations with a choice of gas engines and different price ranges, which makes these vehicles ideal for both private and commercial purposes. However, GMC passenger and cargo van models are starting to feel their age, and the automaker doesn’t seem to be in a rush to update them.

What to Consider Before Buying a GMC Van

As a specialized vehicle, a cargo or passenger van has to meet very certain expectations. GMC models just barely do this in a segment where others offer more luxury, lower prices, and better capabilities. Nevertheless, these are the qualities that these cars do embody.


  • Good hauling and towing capabilities
  • Powerful V8 engine available
  • Durable and reliable
  • Relatively affordable
  • A long-established fan base


  • Harsh ride
  • No high-roof option
  • No all-wheel drive available
  • Crude interior and basic infotainment


What is the towing and hauling capacity of GMC’s vans?

The Savana Passenger Van is rated to tow up to 9,600 pounds and can carry a maximum payload of 2,767 pounds. The Cargo Van is rated to tow up to 10,000 pounds and can carry a maximum payload of 4,501 pounds, but only when the 401-horsepower V8 gas engine is equipped.

Are GMC vans safe cars?

Though they exhibit sturdy construction, these vans lack many of the new safety and driver-assistance features that organizations look for when determining how safe a car is. They have also never been properly crash-tested. With all that being said, we would be hard-pressed to call them truly safe.

Which GMC van offers the best gas mileage?

The better question is which engine uses the least fuel since no cargo or even passenger van is particularly fuel-efficient. Now that GMC has discontinued the turbo-diesel unit, your best bet is the weaker V6 engine. It has reduced hauling and towing limits, but if you only need to move small amounts of cargo or people and you’re not in a hurry, it will save you a little in fuel costs.
