Even since its first launch in 1996, the GMC Savana managed to attract buyers’ interest and for many years was the second best sold van from the US market, after the Ford E Series.
The van received a set of significant modifications in 2003 when it came with upgraded engines and a few style modifications.
The year 2003 has seen the introduction of a four wheel drive system that was a premiere for the Savana. The 2003 GMC Savana was also offered for the first time with four wheel disc brakes.
New driver-side 60/40 access doors have been added as an option together with larger stabilizer bars and a stronger frame. The cabin was slightly revised as well and Chevrolet added new seats, upgraded the lighting and ventilation systems, and also offered dual-stage airbags.
