With each new model year, trucks can come equipped with a bevy of vehicle improvements and modifications. When XL’s automotive partners introduce a design change to one of their vehicles, our electrified vehicle engineering team gets excited. Take the MY18 Chevy Express and GMC Savana vans, for example. The big vehicle change this year? The addition of a 4.3L gasoline engine.
To support the change, XL recently engineered our XLH hybrid electric system for General Motors Express and Savana passenger / cargo vans with GM’s new 4.3L engine. In doing so, we remain compatible with all engine and wheelbase configurations of this popular GM van model, and further extend our industry leadership on the variety of electrified vehicles we’ve made available.
