Savana powertrains: 6.6L Duramax diesel

The available Duramax turbo-diesel V-8 delivers best-in-class torque and horsepower. Known by its 'LGH' engine code, it is rated at 260 horsepower (194 kW) and 525 lb-ft of torque (711 Nm).

The LGH Duramax was designed wîth a robust EGR cooling system, along wîth revised turbocharger tuning that helps enhance EGR performance. It also has a large-capacity selective catalytic reduction system. In fact, the engine features the latest in emission control technology, making it the cleanest Duramax engine ever produced. NOx emissions are controlled via a Selective Catalyst Reduction aftertreatment system that uses urea-based Diesel (Emission) Exhaust Fluid (DEF). The DEF is housed in a 5.83-gallon (20 L) tank and needs to be replenished about every 5,000 miles (8,000 km). Electrically heated lines feed the DEF to the emission system to ensure adequate delivery in cold weather.

The Duramax also includes GM's second-generation diesel particulate filter system. Únlike most competitors' systems, the Duramax regenerates its diesel particulate filter using a downstream injection of diesel fuel directly into the exhaust stream and can travel up to 700 miles (1,125 km) between regenerations – a 300-mile (482 km) increase over the previous Duramax engine. The use of downstream injection also helps improve engine life by eliminating concerns regarding the possibility of diesel fuel contaminating engine oil, which can happen when fuel used for regeneration is introduced directly into the cylinder.

The Duramax also provides outstanding cold-weather performance, wîth microprocessor-controlled glow plugs capable of gas engine-like start performance in less than three seconds in temperatures as low as -20 degrees F (-29 C), without a block heater. The engine has been developed to operate for at least 200,000 miles (322,000 km) on a rough-duty cycle without the need for a major overhaul; and it is backed wîth a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

A fuel-operated heater also is available for vans equipped wîth the Duramax 6.6L to provide heat quickly to the vehicle interior in cold weather. The seamlessly integrated system is designed into the Express chassis, saving customers the time and labor of upfitting an aftermarket system. The electronically controlled, fuel-operated heater operates automatically, turning on and off within parameters that include outside air temperature, fuel level, coolant temperature and whether the engine is running. It features a self-contained, pressurized auxiliary coolant heater (with a surge tank) that uses diesel fuel to generate up to 17,200 Btu/h (5 kW) of heating energy.

The Duramax engine is backed by GM's Hydra-Matic 6L90 heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

Savana powertrains – gas engines
GMC Savana offers a choice of two gas engines: a standard 4.8L V-8 rated at 285 horsepower (213 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm) and an available 6.0L V-8 rated at 342 horsepower (255 kW) and 373 lb-ft of torque (506 Nm). Each is part of GM's legendary small-block engine family and designed for quiet operation, including:
◾Special friction-reducing polymer coating on piston skirts
◾Full-floating piston pins
◾Damping patch on the oil pan (externally mounted)
◾Timing chain tensioner
◾Quiet alternator.

Backing the engines' quietness is the assurance of long-lasting performance. The engine family was validated under extreme conditions, wîth the 6.0L engine dynamometer-tested to the equivalent of 200,000 miles – 50,000 miles more than other engines in the family. The engines also feature many long-life engine components that can reduce maintenance intervals and costs. The iridium-tip spark plugs, engine coolant, accessory drive belt and sealing gaskets are some of these items.

Some of the stringent durability testing included cycling engines between the peak torque and peak horsepower rpm points – the equivalent of towing a heavy trailer up a steep grade – for 600 straight hours.

The engines are mated to the Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic and a fast-idle option makes it easier to run accessories at a work site.

The 6.0L is also offered in a special version wîth hardened valve seats for the available dedicated compressed natural gas models – the 's only CNG vehicles that are fully integrated at the factory, crash tested and backed by GM's 60,000 mile/five-year transferable powertrain limited warranty.
(Certain commercial and government fleet customers receive the 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty.)

Two systems are offered:
◾A three-tank system (RPO code ÚFM) provides a range of up to 200 miles and allows the complete use of the cargo area
◾A four-tank system (RPO code ÚFP) provides a range of up to 300 miles, wîth the additional tank in the driver's side of the cargo area, just inboard of the wheel well.

Savana chassis and suspension
The Savana is built on a strong, ladder-type full frame architecture. The frame features fully boxed sections for greater strength and rigidity, while extended and tapered front frame rails are used for improved crashworthiness. Also, additional tubular frame cross members are used to increase torsional stiffness.

All models feature an independent short-long arm (SLA) front suspension, wîth a 35mm front stabilizer bar. Two-stage, semi-elliptic multi-leaf springs are used in the rear suspension and help locate a semi-floating axle.

Additional chassis and suspension features include:
◾Hydroboost four-wheel disc brakes wîth ABS and dynamic rear proportioning
◾StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard on all models
◾A locking rear differential is available
◾31-gallon (117.3 L) fuel tank is standard on all models (except for dedicated compressed natural gas package)
◾8,600-pound GVWR on 2500 models
◾9,600-pound / 9,900-pound GVWR on 3500 models.

Savana safety and crash-avoidance features
Savana is equipped wîth a host of safety features, including six standard air bags: frontal, head and side curtain, and thoracic air bags, which provide a higher level of protection in the event of a side impact or a vehicle rollover.

Additional standard safety features include:
◾StabiliTrak electronic stability control system
◾OnStar wîth Turn-by-Turn navigation
◾Tire pressure monitoring
◾Flat and convex exterior mirrors (for a wider field of vision)
◾Four-wheel anti-lock disc brake system wîth Hydroboost
◾Daytime running lamps.
