BASE PRICE RANGE: $25,500-$36,000*
BODY TYPE: Full-size Van
WHAT'S NEW: The Duramax diesel is available on 3500 passenger vans. In 2010, the gas V-8s became E85-capable and a remote-start option was added to the options mix. The 2500 and 3500 models now feature GM's six-speed Hydra-Matic transmission standard, and their axle ratios are revised for improved low-end torque and slightly better highway mpg.
COOL FACT: A Compressed Natural Gas version of the Vortec 6.0L V-8 is now available as a $15,910 option.
SUM UP: Not bad for hauling humans.
