The 1995 GMC G2500 classifies as a full-size van with cargo and passenger options. It is almost the same vehicle as the G1500 and G3500. The main distinguishing feature between the different GMC G-Series vans concerns the engine. The G2500 marks the midrange option, with more power than the G1500 and less power than the G3500. It still serves as a very powerful van that can haul large amounts of cargo.
The GMC G2500 better serves as a cargo van than a passenger van. The payload that a passenger van carries usually remains far less than a cargo van. As a result, the more powerful engine provides less of a benefit. It still performs well as a passenger vehicle but maybe doesn’t make the most economic choice. As a cargo van, the engine proves more beneficial. Only drivers carrying extremely heavy payloads encounter enough performance issues to require the more powerful GMC G3500.
The G2500 makes a good commercial workhorse above all else. It offers reliability, a large payload, and a huge interior. It lacks much in the way of comfort-based accessories, but this remains common in commercial vehicles. It shows potential as a family or passenger vehicle, but the G2500 generally does not make the ideal choice without some unusual requirements on the part of the buyer.

The GMC G2500 full-size van measures 178.2 inches long and sits on a wheelbase of 110 inches. The 1995 GMC G2500 measures the same size as the G1500 and a little smaller than the G3500. Chrome bumpers and a camper towing package comprise the list of optional features.
While the GMC G2500 has a massive interior that can be devoted to passenger seating or cargo space. An AM/FM radio marks the only really notable standard feature. A cassette player, a premium audio system, cruise control, power windows, power locks, a rear heater, air-conditioning, and dual-zone air-conditioning remain available as optional features. The interior of the 1995 GMC G2500 looks identical to the G1500 and G3500.
Performance & Handling
The 1995 GMC G2500 shows about average performance for a van this size. Acceleration and handling, while not particularly exceptional, prove solid enough. The performance of the G2500 does not suffer too much when loaded down. Any driver familiar with driving a full-size van should not be surprised by the G2500.
The 1995 GMC G2500 includes a driver airbag and four-wheel anti-lock brakes as standard equipment.
