The GMC Savana Van has been around for years. GMC changed it to the Express series in 1996. Since 1996, the GMC Van has had several different type engines based on the size of the van and needs of the vehicle. The 4.3 liter V6 engine was used in mostly a short wheel base Van. The 4.3 had Vortec heads and was a very good running performing engine. The next size up was a 5.0 liter V8 engine, this was used in trucks and some passenger vehicles. The 5.7 liter engine added great power and made for a good running van with good power.



The 6.5 liter diesel was only available in the 2500 seiers 3/4 ton van. This van was mostly built for work because the the strong suspension. The ride in a 3/4 passenger van can be very bumpy.The 454 7.4 liter and the 8.1 liter engine were really overkill for the vehicle. They consume lots of fuel and are very heavy. The newest diesel the 6.6 Duramax turbo diesel offers the most torque possible for this application.
