Review of the 2002 GMC Safari

  • A minivan with truck capabilities ... and refinement ... and ride quality.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Standard eight-passenger seating, 5,400-pound trailer rating, torquey V6.

  • Cons

    Boxy design, poor fuel economy, intrusive engine cover makes for small footwells.

  • What's New for 2002

    The standard Vortec V6 gets multipoint fuel injection for better overall drivability, while the rear axle now receives a standard dose of synthetic gear oil for reduced heat buildup and longer bearing life.
