The GMC Savana is a big, buff box on wheels in the vogue of the old '90s American vans that we just wouldn't see anymore today, were it not for the long-lived GM twins. It's brutally functional, and no regard was given to aesthetics. It's as basic as you get, with 16-inch steel wheels, LT245/75R16 all-season tires, halogen headlights, black mirrors, and even a traditional antenna on the front fender. The LS has its front and rear bumpers and grille finished in black, but the LT gets a chrome exterior package with a chrome finish for the bumpers, the grille surround, and the wheels' center caps. This appearance package is optional on the LS. The silver-painted steel wheels can optionally be exchanged for white-painted wheels. Swing-out rear passenger-side doors are standard, but they can optionally be replaced by a sliding door. Assist steps can also be added. Only four paint colors are available.
The dimensions of the GMC Savana Passenger Van are substantial, and even the Regular Wheelbase has a length of 223.95 inches and a wheelbase of 135.2 inches, while the corresponding figures for the Extended Wheelbase are 243.95 and 155.1 inches, respectively. The body's width without the mirrors is 79.25 inches, and a height of 84.5 inches is common to all. Minimum ground clearance is a generous 8.6 inches. A van of this size is heavy, and even at its lightest, the 2500 Regular Wheelbase LS has a curb weight of 5,830 pounds. Weight maxes out at around 6,300 lbs for the heaviest 3500 Extended Wheelbase LT.

There are only four exterior colors for the GMC Savana Passenger Van and the choices are identical for all trims. Summit White, Onyx Black, and Cardinal Red are no-cost options, and Quicksilver Metallic costs $495 extra.
The Savana is a utility vehicle built for a job and the color you choose will likely have more to do with matching the rest of your fleet or with branding in mind. As such, the most popular color is usually Summit White.
Only one color costs extra and that is Quicksilver Metallic at $495.
Even though this is the passenger version, no Savana trim is available with a sunroof.
All trims wear the same 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires. The only difference is that the LS has dark center caps and the LT has chrome center caps (optional on LS). The wheels can be had in white too.
