Furniture World News on

General Motors' Commercial announced that the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana are listed best in class for fuel economy, according to EPA data. This extends the vehicles reputation among home furnishings retailers for reliability and versatility, along with top vehicle maintenance and value added alternatives. “The Express and Savana rise to the top of the pack with its reliability and versatility, but adding the warranty and fuel economy has really made our products stand apart,” said Mark Karney, General Motors director of marketing for commercial trucks and vans. “This product deserves added consideration from anyone looking to add to their fleet.” The new warranty is the best of any full-line automaker, with coverage 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 feature heavy-duty towing and hauling applications, powerplant options and versatility of use. The unique 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 (220kW) and 335 lb. feet of torque (454 Nm). For more information, go to www.gmfleet.com
