GMC Safari Passenger Models and Safari Passenger History

Emerging at the infancy of the family minivan craze, the GMC Safari Passenger van was first sold in 1985.

A 1995 redesign did modernize the look of the front end and interior of the Safari Passenger. Available in SLX, SLE and SLT trim levels, the 1998 GMC Safari Passenger van is configured to hold up to eight occupants at a time. Standard features on the passenger version of the Safari minivan included an anti-lock braking system, dual front airbags, air conditioning and AM/FM stereo system. Available features on the GMV minivan allowed customers to opt for a rear Dutch door setup, remote keyless entry and CD audio system. The entire Safari Passenger van line-up is powered by a 4.3-liter Vortec V-6 engine producing 190 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. Mated with a four-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive was offered to move the 1998 Safari Passenger van. Rated to tow as much as 5,400 pounds, the GMC Safari Passenger vans flexibility combined with the 170.4 cubic feet of interior cargo capacity. For 2003, a mechanical upgrade made to the GMC Safari line-up added four-wheel disc brakes and a HydroBoost hydraulic assist brake booster.16-inch wheels was also promoted to the standard features list on all 2003 GMC Safari Passenger vans. After 20 years on the market, GMC concluded production of the truck-like Safari minivan in 2005 as the small passenger van segment shifted to car-based models.
