EPA Names Chevrolet Express, GMC Savana Best in Class for Fuel Economy

December 18, 2006

The Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana are included with the recent GM announcement of its 100,000 mile/five-year powertrain warranty and is listed best in class for fuel economy, according to EPA data.

The new warranty offers coverage of up to 100,000 miles or five years. Also included in the warranty is an expansion of roadside assistance and courtesy transportation programs.

According to EPA data, the Express and Savana are first in class for fuel economy for full-size passenger vans and full-size cargo vans. It receives 14 city/18 highway miles and 15 city/20 highway miles, respectively. In addition, the Express and Savana offer heavy-duty towing and hauling applications, powerplant options, and versatility of use. The tow/haul mode reduces frequency and improves the predictability of transmission shifts when pulling a trailer or carrying a heavy load.

Powerplant options include a Vortec FlexFuel 5.3L V-8 engine, which delivers 295 horsepower and 335 lb.-ft. of torque. The cutaway version may be converted to meet commercial, school bus, and RV requirements.
