The 2008 GMC Savana is designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of users, and its optional features list is, accordingly, quite extensive. For those who just need a big, moving box to haul stuff, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the standard features on the GMC Savana 2008 are minimal.
Standard features on the 2008 GMC Savana vary according to the two trim levels, but both are rather Spartan. Edmunds writes that the "LS models are geared toward fleet service, so standard equipment is limited to air-conditioning, an AM/FM stereo and a theft-deterrent system." On the LT trim of the GMC Savana, Edmunds says that standard features "include auxiliary rear air-conditioning and heating, power windows and door locks, cloth upholstery, cruise control, a tilt steering wheel and keyless entry."
While the standard features list is small on the GMC Savana 2008, the options list stretches for quite a while. ConsumerGuide lists some of the more noteworthy options packages as the "PRP Pro" package for the Cargo models that includes "three side access panels w/keyless remote release," a "driver-side rear door," and a "sliding passenger-side door." Also on the Cargo version, a "Chrome Appearance" Package that adds a "chrome grille and bumpers" is available for those who want to make a statement with their GMC Savana, ConsumerGuide says. Automobile predicts most consumers "will probably opt for an option package" that can include "a left-side passenger door, CD player, rear defogger, and OnStar," though they note that "this is just the tip of an options iceberg that favors business applications" for the GMC Savana 2008. Indeed, most of the options noted by ConsumerGuide are for the Cargo models, including "deep-tinted glass" and "full body glass" options on the 2008 GMC Savana.
